Battlestar Galactica: Season One

 (TV) (2003-2005)

Battlestar Galactica: Season One Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Deep in the universe, cybernetic Cylons have all but wiped out the human race, laying waste to the Twelve Colonies of Man. Cast out, the few survivors aboard the Battlestar Galactica search for a so-called 13th colony: the mythical planet Earth.

For more about Battlestar Galactica: Season One and the Battlestar Galactica: Season One Blu-ray release, see Battlestar Galactica: Season One Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Battlestar Galactica: Season One Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Blu-ray release of Battlestar Galactica accurately preserves the artistic intentions of the creators. The stylized visual elements within certain scenes are intentional and faithful to the broadcast presentation of the television show.

So opens the 1080p/VC-1 encoded Blu-ray edition of Battlestar Galactica: Season 1, a faithful-to-a-fault presentation if there ever was one. As Universal did with The Complete Series and Season 4.5, the series' at-times intrusive grain, harsh noise and garish digital anomalies are intact and Moore's every gritty intention has been preserved. That being said, those who look past his aesthetic choices will be treated to a satisfying picture in its own right. Warm oranges and searing Caprican yellows are bold and vibrant, blacks are inky and well-resolved, and skintones, whether human or Cylon, are natural and lifelike. Yes, Moore frequently allows color to bleed from the image, granting the steely hull of a battle cruiser and the cold sheen of marching Centurions power over the palette. And yes, many a shot is deprived of primary punch, whites surge and relent, and contrast charges and retreats depending on the tone and tenor of a scene. But it's all within the spirit of Galactica. Detail remains relatively strong through it all despite some persistent interference from the aforementioned noise and close-ups are often striking. Granted, the miniseries is cursed with a limited budget and its image quality suffers as a result, but any issues should be attributed to the source, not Universal's technical efforts. Artifacting, ringing, and other nonsense is kept to a bare minimum, and the presentation clings to Moore's bleak vision like a dutiful child.

All things considered, those with appropriate expectations will be happy with the results. Newcomers will require more convincing (trust me, reserve your judgment until after you've watched the entire season), but should be equally pleased by the time they reach the finale.


Battlestar Galactica: Season One Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The quality of Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is more apparent from the outset. Again, the miniseries is a bit weak in the knees, but the season proper is blessed with crisp dialogue, hearty LFE support, and an immersive, three-dimensional soundfield. Raptors and raiders careen from speaker to speaker, encircling each other as smoothly and effortlessly as their pilots' well-prioritized chatter engages the listener. Explosions and gunfire are startling and weighty, shaking the room as readily as they shake the Galactica. Better still, Bear McCreary's evocative, oft-times heart-pounding score makes its presence known, haunting quiet conversations and intensifying the series' brisk action scenes. Through it all, directionality is precise, pans are transparent, and dynamics are commanding, lending the soundscape a richness and maturity usually found in more nuanced Hollywood blockbusters. There are a handful of occasions in which the actors lines' are buried beneath more chaotic sequences, but I suspect Moore wouldn't have it any other way. Fans will be ecstatic, inductees will be impressed, and audiophiles will crack more than a few smiles.
