Battlestar Galactica: The Plan Blu-ray Announced, Complete Series Box Set Reviewed

Universal Studios Home Entertainment sent out a press release yesterday announcing their upcoming Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, the direct-to-video coda to the highly acclaimed Sci-fi television series. While it gives a pretty solid run-down of what we can expect to see on the Blu-ray and DVD discs, I still have no clue where this fits into the overall Galactica story!

I know the fraking cylons are supposed to have a plan. But was it just about killing off all the humans? And, so what happened to that plan when they didn’t all evaporate in the first attack? Did they just give it up? Doesn’t that make this whole DTV movie a bit of nonsense?!

Urgh… I’m THIS close to being done with Battlestar

Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series Blu-ray

On a related note, Bill Hunt, the lucky son-of-a-gun, has gotten himself an early copy of the giant Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series box set and has posted a rather thorough review of it over on his site, The Digital Bits. Sounds like it’s all a Battlestar fan could’ve hoped for, save for the exclusion of a few bits and bobs (like the Face of the Enemy webisodes, as we reported on earlier). Go give his review a read!

And now, on to the Battlestar Galactica: The Plan press release!

Ronald D. Moore and David Eick return as executive producers.

Battlestar Galactica: The Plan’s executive producer and writer Jane Espenson added, “Edward James Olmos was our director on the movie, and he did an amazing job. He also shot some great footage that we are not able to show on TV, so I’m thrilled that viewers can experience it uncut as our director envisioned it.”

Battlestar Galactica: The Plan.. The Cylons began as humanity’s robot servants. They rebelled and evolved and now they look like us. Their plan is simple: destroy the race that enslaved them. But when their devastating attack leaves human survivors, the Cylons have to improvise. Battlestar Galactica: The Plan tells the story of two powerful Cylon leaders, working separately, and their determination to finish the task.

An inspired, visually stunning reimagining of the 1978 series of the same name, Battlestar Galactica captured the imaginations of a new generation of fans with its gritty realism, compelling storylines and commanding performances. The show garnered numerous awards, including two Emmys(R) and the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award and was recognized by the American Film Institute (AFI) as one of the most outstanding television programs of the year for two years running. In March 2009, Battlestar Galactica’s impassioned explorations of today’s hot-button issues, including politics, terrorism, treatment of prisoners and religion, even inspired the United Nations to host a special panel to discuss the questions it has raised. The series is from Universal Cable Productions and is executive produced by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick.
