I caught the mini-series when it showed on SkyOne last year, but missed a few of episodes of the series itself, and because the storyline is so involved I didn’t really make and effort to watch the others in the series. But the dvd caught my eye, and I had quite liked the mini-series, so I picked it up.
Starting where the mini-series left off, so if you haven’t seen those you might be a little lost, Battlestar Galactica is very different from the original series of the 70’s, and is all the better for it. BSG has many of sci-fi’s big issues. It has the possible end of humanity, starships, battles in space, robots, what makes a human, it even brings up faith vs. reason.
