    Synopsis


    David Eick and Ronald D. Moore's dark reinvention of the cult sci-fi series picks up where the 2003 miniseries left off. An old battleship named Galactica leads a fleet of survivors away from their planets, which were decimated by a nuclear attack perpetrated by a race of machines known as Cylons. Galactica's senior officer, Cdr. William Adama (Edward James Olmos), and the newly sworn-in leader of the Twelve Colonies of Kobol, President Laura Roslin (Mary McDonnell), discover how relentless the Cylons can be when they briefly manage to track, harass and nearly exhaust the fleet. Worse, the Cylons have created copies of machines that appear human, some of which have infiltrated the fleet as unwary sleeper agents. Lt. Sharon "Boomer" Valerii (Grace Park) learns she is a Cylon after she sabotages Galactica's water supply. And another copy of Boomer uses Lt. Karl "Helo" Agathon (Tahmoh Penikett) as a guinea pig in an experiment the Cylons are conducting on the devastated Colonial world Caprica. A suicide bombing on Galactica forces the Colonial leadership to publicly divulge the existence of humanoid Cylons and the likelihood that some are operating within the fleet, fostering feelings of paranoia in an already stressed and depressed populace. Adama and Roslin are tasked with forging a new government and replenishing their supplies of water, fuel and fighter pilots, while they also try to keep hope alive during their search for the fabled lost colony Earth. Meanwhile, Dr. Gaius Baltar (James Callis) must cope with his role in the near annihilation of his people, his place in the new space-faring community, and the intrusions of an incorporeal entity-that only he can see-which has taken the form of the sixth humanoid Cylon model (Tricia Helfer) to guide the troubled genius. ~ Michael Chant

      A Riveting Show That Will Get You Hooked!

      Posted

      This is a great show! You will definitely get hooked upon watching the first episode (actually, it's a mini-series). I enjoy how the plot line is different with stakes at an all time high; the survival or extinction of the human race. Additionally, it's a great concept to intertwine this story with that of Earth making it more believable. You don't spend part of the episodes wondering, "Gee, that's quite a coincidence they also smoke cigarettes and know Greek Gods..." The visual effects are exceptional as well especially taking into consideration that it was a weekly television show. My biggest issue with the show is that during the beginning titles, dramatic points of the episode are revealed in quick snippets. Some may enjoy that, but for me, I find it ruins part of the surprise and pleasure of anticipating the characters' next course of action.

      Battlestar Galactica has been completely re-imagined to incorporate a new original storyline based on the basics of the original. To some fans of the original series, this may seem blasphemous, but don't jump to conclusions so soon. You need to sit down and watch this one, and watch it as if it were something brand new...which quite frankly it is. This show has caught the attention of millions of viewers...and there is a good reason. Great special effects, riveting story, and great interesting characters. Watch this one!! You'll love it.

      Battlestar Galactica is a new genre of sci-fi, that can be watched by any person with time on their hands. The series presents a problem in the beginning that is solved in the end in a way that people would imagine themselves trying to solve the problem.

      Currently television is infested with bad television and that makes it hard to know what to watch or purchase. Battlestar Galactica breaks those barriers by bringing a great drama into the genre of SciFi. Best Purchase Ever.

      I happened to miss Battlestar Galactica when it aired on the science fiction channel, but now I'm so glad that I've watched it. Amazing series, one of the best to ever be shown on television. Don't miss out!

      I got this for my husband as a father’s day gift. I really couldn't get into the TV series as he did. This weekend we went on a Galactica Marathon. I found myself enjoying the series. I love it on Blu Ray!
