TITLE: Battlestar Galactica - The Complete Series
STARS: Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Tricia Helfer, Grace Park, Katee Sackhoff, Jamie Bamber, James Callis, Tahmoh Penikett, Kandyse McClure, Lucy Lawless
FUN FACT: In the original 1978 cult classic TV show, the womanizing, gambling, wise-ass, cigar-smoking Starbuck character was male and played by Dirk Benedict. The Sci-Fi Channel's re-imagining of the show featured the luscious Katee Sackhoff in the role, drinking, cursing, and sexing up a storm. You'd have to be a robot to not be excited by that decision.
WHY COMPLEX IS CO-SIGNING IT: Battlestar Galactica, a complicated chronicle of the outer space conflict between mankind and the sentient machines it created and enslaved, is arguably the best science-fiction television series ever (sorry if you just Shatnered in your pants)...
It's got deep themes, tackling issues of race, religion, socio-economics, terrorism, and much more. It's also got a deep roster of fine-ass women (including June/July 2008 Complex cover girl Grace Park). The special effects used to bring robot Centurion Cylons and outer space battles to life are unrivaled and amazing considering the short production time of television. If all this weren't enough, the redux BSG series uses "frak," a cool futuristic version of the curse word "fuck" (it was "frack" in the original series), so characters could drop frequent f-bombs on TV like actual people. We could not frak with this show any harder—at least not without some serious chafing.
DVD SPECIAL FEATURES: Commentaries, featurettes, video blogs, webisodes, deleted scenes, and extended episodes (that were originally featured in the original single-season DVD sets); special box packaging; a Cylon action figure
