Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Epic Series review

81GUr8iIOoL. SL1500 733x1024 Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Epic Series

In the deepest reaches of space, the fight to save all human life from extinction has begun in this science-fiction adventure that launched the Battlestar Galactica phenomenon, now presented digitally remastered, complete, and uncut! Hopeful for lasting peace following centuries of intense warfare, the Twelve Colonies gather to sign a treaty with their dreaded enemies, the Cylons. But after an act of treachery on the eve of the ceremony, the Cylons launch a devastating surprise attack, destroying the Colonies’ home planets and most of their military strength. A lone flagship battlestar, the Galactica, remains to aid the surviving colonists on their epic journey for a new home to a far-off legendary planet—Earth. They must survive the pursuing Cylons in a series of epic battles that will determine the fate of the human race in this action-packed classic.

Only 24 episodes but it took me nearly 3 months to get through them all. Not because they’re horrible, but I was trying to watch this while laying on the couch and I frequently fell asleep during episodes. Some of these I slept through about 5 times! Now that I’ve finished the original series I have a greater appreciation for the rebooted series from Syfy, not to say that this version should be avoided, but some of the choices in the newer series make a lot more sense in context of the original series (I’m looking at you dead/alive/dead again/angel Starbuck). Now that I’ve seen this though, I think it’ll be the last time I watch the original series. Definitely not the last time I re-watch the rebooted series though, god damn that was a fun show to binge watch.
