Description

After blasting away the competition to become the most-watched cable miniseries of 2003, the Battlestar Galactica drama returns. The show reunites the entire cast and creative team behind the miniseries, including stars Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Jamie Bamber, Tricia Helfer, Katee Sackhoff, James Callis, and Grace Park. The new Galactica series picks up where the hit miniseries left off. After engaging in a losing battle against the Cylons, humanity's last remnants fled in search of a new home, a mythical planet called Earth. With waning supplies, weapons, and hope, Commander Adama and President Laura Roslin (McDonnell) realize that their problems are far greater than the immediate threat of Cylons. On their shoulders rests the very survival of humankind.

Customer Reviews

Be prepared to be hooked

Certainly by now the other reviews have made it apparent - there is some great acting, well written stories and definitely some drama. But what drives the drama? It is the more intelligent battles - the subtle ones - that if you are fortunate to see that make the difference. This series has character development on all levels - what makes a great villain? One that isn't necessarily all evil or at least keeps you guessing as to his or her morality. To this day you are taken by some of the struggles and ethical issues at large. Abortion, suicide bombers, the question of a fetus for a life (stem cell), sacrifice of a few lives to save many - this series has not feared to approach any of those topics. Something worthy of dying for and the difference it makes when you have something to live for - that is such a subtle thing on the surface but one that drives instincts. In short, this series has explored our humanity at the very core and at the forefront of the theme - the recurring theme even - is whether or not humanity is worth saving - as a whole, not one religon, or sect, but as a collective group. You see some of the enemies come from within - and the stories spend as much time in direct conflict as they do with the conflict that we have as a civilization that prospers with greed and individual acts of selfishness. After nearly two seasons the true enemy is still not clear - but the best part is that perhaps there isn't one.

Amazing! What a shock!

I have to admit, I was getting used to being somewhat disappointed by the scifi networks shows. This took me completely offguard. It has really fantastic characters, realistic casting (not just a bunch of pretty folk) and presents very interesting dramatic ideas in unusually smart ways. The special effects are wonderful too! A+!!!

My turn to say Grace

The new Battlestar Galactica is extremely well written and fresh, while still staying true to the old series. The special effects are dazzling, and the cast members shine. And to top it all off... Grace Park! Battlestar rocks!!! My iPod video has never looked so good.
