There is no substitute for great storytelling. Ronald D. Moore and David Eick's re-imagined tale of the exodus of the twelve colonies should be watched by anyone with an interest in the most important issues facing us today. The writing is top-notch, the acting is incredible, and the cinema verite style that is a staple of the show sucks you in. There aren't the usual trek-like wonder fixes for problems, there's very little techno-babble, and in this story-arc format, wounds don't miraculously heal on next week's episode. It's gritty, so make sure your kids are mature enough to handle it, but the series as a body of work is a masterpiece that you can enjoy whether you are into science fiction or not.
This was my Father's Day gift. I've not been well due to a back injury, but what a surprise I had when I received the Box set before it was expected. It was packed well and in excellent condition. Communication was great too. As far as the box set goes - it is everything I had hoped for and more. Not only do you get the complete series, but also extended episodes and two separate episodes; Razor and The Plan. Great bonus features as well for probably the best inventive and written show for television - hands down. Yes, I love The Sopranos, Dexter, True Blood, X-Files, but BSG is the most well thought out show ever from beginning to end. There are many shocking moments and a very different and satisfying ending.
It actually arrived earlier then expected and was in excellent condition.
