Battlestar Galactica Season 2.0
Battlestar Galactica 2.0 has just been released on DVD. The 3 disc DVD set contains the first 10 episodes of the second season. For obvious reasons I might add since that's the number of episodes that have been aired so far.
Colonel Tigh takes over command as Captain Adama is left near death after he was shot by Boomer in last season's final episode. A command where he's tested both by President Roslin and some of the crew. President Roslin is more and more convinced she is the one mentioned in the prophecies. On Caprica Helo and Starbuck discover a group of humans who have taken up the fight against the cylons. All the while the Cylons posing a constant threat to them all.
The DVDs also come with a bunch of deleted scenes, some of which also give us a more detailed character background for some of the crew members. I especially found the ones on how Captain Adama and Colonel Tigh met and grew to know each other interesting. Basically there's lots of extra material on the DVDs, deleted scenes for almost every episode as well as commentaries by producer Ronald D. Moore for seven of the episodes.
There's even a short sneak peak of what's to come, which is kind of good even though it just gives you a short glimpse. If you thought the first season left you with a cliffhanger I think the one you're left with after the 10th episode have to be the largest I've ever seen.
To sum it all up, Battlestar Galactica has definitely ended up being the excellent series I hoped it would be after watching the initial mini-series. A brilliant series and with season 2 it only seems to get even better if it were ever possible.
