Battlestar Galactic Isn't Available To Stream, So This Blu-Ray Box Set Deal Is Awesome

This Blu-ray box set of Battlestar Galactica comes with all four seasons and an impressive amount of extra content as well.


We're living in an impressive era for sci-fi, and you can thank shows like Battlestar Galactica for raising the bar of episodic storytelling when it debuted in 2004. If you're looking to revisit this modern classic--which is a reboot of the 1978 TV series--Amazon has discounted the Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series Blu-ray Box Set from $100 to $62. It's worth mentioning that Battlestar isn't available with any streaming subscription services in the US. Instead, episodes cost roughly three bucks each on Prime Video, while each season can set you back $35. Needless to say, $62 is actually quite the bargain for all four seasons.

This is a 21-disc box set, and inside you'll find all four seasons of the show, the special episode Razor, and the finale film The Plan. Each season and special also comes with a ton of extras, like documentaries, behind-the-scenes featurettes, webisodes, deleted scenes, and much more. This version also has a high-definition presentation and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound support, so you're getting a cinematic experience if you have the right setup for it.

This reimagining of Battlestar Galactica kept the basic plot of the original series and detailed how the remnants of humanity were in a desperate fight for survival against the synthetic Cylon race. After the Cylons succeeded in wiping out billions of humans who had colonized a cluster of planets, the survivors flee to the Battlestar Galactica and begin a long trek in search of a fabled thirteenth colony known as Earth. Despite its low-budget beginnings, Battlestar Galactica quickly earned rave reviews for its high-quality production, ensemble cast, and its examination of what it means to be human amidst several other high-level concepts.

For more Battlestar, you can grab the complete original series on DVD for $22, down from $45. Meanwhile, the original movie released on 4K Blu-ray last year and is available for $17 at Amazon.

If you're looking for more sci-fi, you can also check out this deal on Babylon 5. It's a groundbreaking series in its own right, and the Blu-ray box set has been discounted to almost half its list price at Amazon, dropping the cost to $71.
