    Disc Replacement Program from Universal 6-4-15

    There is missing footage during the episode, THE MAGNIFICENT WARRIORS, on disc 3 of the widescreen version of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA - on both the Remastered Collection and Definitive Collection. The issue is being fixed and consumers can get a replacement disc by emailing USHEConsumerRelations@visionmediamgmt.com. Consumers should include: 1 - "Battlestar Galactica Classic Collection: BD" in the subject line of their email, 2 - the following text in the body of the email, "I would like to receive a replacement disc for (Disc 3, Episode "The Magnificent Warriors")." Within 24-48 hours, consumers will get a response asking for their mailing address in the United States or Canada. Shortly thereafter, they will receive a postage-paid envelope for them to mail in their disc with the missing footage from THE MAGNIFICENT WARRIORS. 2-3 weeks later they will receive a replacement disc with the complete episode. Thanks to tvshowsondvd.com for their 6-4-15 posting. In my opinion, regarding video quality. 1 - Full Screen version (found on the other release) - very good but not excellent. 2 - Widescreen version - below average (and it appears as if was re-mastered by someone other than those who re-mastered the full screen version). I wouldn't say this is worth it above a $20 price tag, nor would I recommend this widescreen version based on picture quality. If this is updated in the future, it will be posted under comments as Best Buy doesn't allow these reviews to be edited once posted.

    Battlestar Galactica On Blu-Ray

    If you're a child of the 70's like me, then you undoubtedly remember this show. Each week we'd tune in to see the next chapter of the Galactica saga as it searched for the fabled 13th colony located on planet called Earth. Both the original Battlestar Galactica series and the follow-up show, Galactica 1980, are included in this set. The 1979 theatrical movie isn't included in this boxset but can be found on Blu-ray for a cheap price separately or you can buy "The Definitive Collection" and it's included in that boxset. Unfortunately the blu-ray presentation of the series left a lot to be desired in my opinion. The graininess of the episodes was very evident in so many scenes I lost count. However, I was glad to have the series in the more modern 16x9 format, hence my choosing this boxset over the "Definitive Collection" as I had no interest in seeing the episodes in the 4x3 broadcast format. Some of the episodes that were originally broadcast separately (War Of The Gods, Saga Of A Star World) have been molded together as one long episode too. I did find myself wishing that Universal had cleaned up the images a bit better and perhaps even tweaked the special effects like Paramount did with the original Star Trek series years ago. In spite of the shortcomings, I still recommend the purchase of the set.

    If you loved this series when it was first released, you'll enjoy seeing it remastered and on Blu-ray. Big improvement!
