    BSG 1978 (Repackage)

    Posted
    GALACTICA356

    This is the same standard-definition transfers first released in October, 2003. But, yes, I bought this repackage. Why? Because the original release was on double-sided discs which are more difficult to keep in mint condition. Also, the original disc holders are brittle clear plastic prone to breaking. Once the center button breaks, your disc is free to roam the confines of the fold-out box. Another thing is that the clear plastic disc holders could tend to crack the spindle hole of the discs, causing them to warp ever so slightly and, therefore, not play. Some sets had discs with manufacturing problems, as well. So, with this set, I'll still keep the original release but these are the ones I'll watch from now on. The original series, as well as the sequel series, Galactica 1980, have been remastered in HD and released on Blu-ray Disc, however, it's exclusive to Universal's German distributor. No one's sure how long the exclusivity agreement lasts, but it's available under the title Kampfstern Galactica.

    Can't beat the original!

    Can't beat the original! Even though the new series has grown in popularity, this is where the idea started and it really is quite different from the new version. And of course, nobody beats Dirk Benedict as the original 'male' version of Starbuck (Batllestar's answer to Han Solo)! This is definitely a must have for anybody that remembers the original series and wants to reminisce the good ol' days of TV. The other great thing about this set is that it includes the original movie on Disc 1. This will start you on the journey as the rest of the series follows from that story. If you enjoy sci fi and movies from its coming of age era, this set is a must have!

    For anyone who loved science fiction before it became all the buzz as it is today, you will love this. The minute you start the first show and watched it every week, you will start to remember everything you loved about the show. It has high tech special effects, not like today of course, but when the show was in production it pulled out all the stops to entertain the audience. Just keep in mind it is an older show and not the like the currect/recent show, however it was the show that brought what you have today.

    I recently purchased the series when I saw Best Buy had a decent price on it. Back when the show originally aired I enjoyed watching it and figured that even knowing its going to be a bit dated and hokey by today's standards that it would still be fun to watch. It was pretty much as I remember it and I guess its just a bit of a guilty pleasure. I haven't watched all the episodes so far but I'm glad I picked the set up for a little late 70's fun.

    Great Re-master Re-release

    This re-mastered re-release on 10 single sided dvds is excellant. Picture quality is better than the first release of the double sided set issued over 20 years ago, which I purchased from Best Buy. This series in my opinion is better than the updated series version that aired on SyFy channel. I saw this original series on ABC back in the 1970's and liked it then and like it now, which is why I purchased it again.

    The original story of the cylons against the humans. This is before CGI but the models look great even today. They did a lot with a small busget. Pretty funny that they trashed so many of the cylon costumes they had to write them out of the story.
