Synoposis: Humanity gets wiped out in deep space. Adama (Lorne Greene) broods, Starbuck (Dirk Benedict) bangs a lot of chicks and wins a lot of card games, and Apollo (Richard Hatch) solves every problem he encounters by acting really, really concerned.
Blurb From the VHS Jacket: “The Galactica, a futuristic aircraft carrier the size of a small city, careens through a distant starfield followed by a convoy of bizarre space vehicles, all fleeing the destruction of the human race.”
What Did I Learn?: When the Cylons propose a peace treaty, hit those tin can bastards with the nearest two-by-four.
You Might Like This Movie If: You would gladly give up your day job to become a Colonial Warrior in a New York Centon.
Really?: They found a disco planet – a DISCO planet.
Rating: It’s cheesy in places, but I’m biased...Battlestar Galactica filled the sci-fi imagination gap for me in the late 1970s between Star Wars and Empire. 7.5/10 stars.
