The project might all be an exploitative departure from the ''Battlestar Galactica'' brand name, but it's hard not to like where the spacemen (and spacewomen) are going. Full Review

Rating: 7/10 -- The success of the miniseries gave momentum for the weekly series. I hope the series is as enjoyable as this. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- As is appropriate for this more jaded era, the story is much more grim and edgy. Now if I can just get used to Starbuck being a girl . . . Full Review

I think we were all perfectly content with our vague memories of shag hairdos... there will always be DVD to remind us how bad the original series was. We certainly didn't need a bad new series to drive the point home. Full Review

Rating: A- -- It's a type of world-building best-suited to endless franchises-the multi-book series, the film trilogy, the serialized television show. The detail is there for richness, not for third-act plot expediency. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- The strength of this series is the way its characters each choose to react to this untenable situation. Full Review

Product Description:

The popular 1970s sci-fi television show is updated and re-imagined in BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. It has been a generation since the Cylons, androids built by mankind to work and serve them, rebelled and disappeared into the cosmos. But now they have returned, bent on destroying the twelve worlds of their former masters. Commander William Adama (Edward James Olmos) manages to escape the destruction with a small portion of the human population on board the Battlestar Galactica, and now searches the far reaches of space for the lost colony of man known as Earth. Unfortunately, the Cylons are still in pursuit, determined to wipe out every trace of the human race. This mini-series of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA updates the original series with a darker tone, new CGI special effects, and by giving the Cylons the ability to mimic their prey, making them all the more dangerous. It shares with THE MATRIX and THE TERMINATOR series a vision of mankind undone by the very machines it created, and the continuing struggle between the mechanical and the organic that will determine the future.
