Battlestar Galactica 1980 - Complete (DVD)
All ten episodes from, in effect, the second series of the space drama about the adventures of the Battlestar Galactica. Decimated by a Cylon attack, the last surviving members of the human race escape their ruined planet and head for sanctuary on the planet Earth. But when the Battlestar Galactica finally arrives at the planet Earth, they find they must subtly raise its tech level and protect it from the Cylons. Episodes comprise: 'Galactica Discovers Earth: Part 1', 'Galactica Discovers Earth: Part 2', 'Galactica Discovers Earth: Part 3', 'the Super Scouts: Part 1', 'the Super Scouts: Part 2', 'Spaceball', 'the Night the Cylons Landed: Part 1', 'the Night the Cylons Landed: Part 2', 'Space Croppers' and 'the Return of Starbuck' Synopsis After its initial cancellation, fan outcry led to Battlestar Galactica being restored to TV screens--albeit in revamped form. Set 30 years after the original series, Battlestar Galactica 1980 finds the star cruiser of the title finally reaching the glimmering oasis of Earth. Unfortunately, they've also led their dreaded enemies, the robotic Cyclons, to the planet. In order to prepare 1980s-era earthlings for intergalactic battle and save the human race from destruction, Captain Troy (Kent McCord) and Lieutenant Dillon (Barry Van Dyke) are sent down to meet with the planet's scientists and jump-start their primitive technology. Along the way, they get in some interesting culture clashes with bikers, police, and an intrepid TV anchor (Robyn Douglass). Though the premise is altered, the series is still full of the laser battles and deep-space sequences that made the original so popular with legions of fans. Features the complete first series.
