DVD Seris...

I have the first season on DVD, should I get the rest and the movies for the reboot Galatica?

I liked the series and saw a few episodes here and there online when I was gone bye bye far a field with the Army, but having missed so much... I was lost. Is the series good? I like the first season.

Re: DVD Seris...

There's a diversity of opinion on this matter.

Personally, I think it's all good except for certain parts of season 3, but some say that the quality nose-dived for seasons 3 & 4. The smartest thing to do is buy season 2 because the first half of the season is a continuation of season 1, then there's the brilliant Pegasus arc in the middle of the season, but then the show goes downhill for a bit and finally it recovers for the last few episodes of the season. If you liked season 1 you'd probably like season 2, and when you're finished season 2 you can make the choice whether to go on from there.

The important thing to keep in mind while watching it is that there is no plan and never was, some people think that was a huge failing of the show (especially when every episode begins with the statement that there is a plan) but if you watch the show knowing that it is all being made up on the fly it makes it more tolerable.

I think you'll enjoy it, but the smart move is to buy it set to set, and if you ever lose interest, you can stop watching there, no harm done. Pick up season 2.0, and if that holds your interest, then surely season 2.5 will, and so on and so forth.

Its definitely worth it.
Season 3 even isn't bad but it drags a bit...S1, S2 and S4 were some of the best TV ever made.
And you will want to see how it ends, its an ending, as in THE END, FIN, OVER.
