In the deepest reaches of space, the fight to save all human life from extinction has begun in this science-fiction adventure that launched the Battlestar Galactica phenomenon! Hopeful for lasting peace following centuries of intense warfare, the Twelve Colonies gather to sign a treaty with their dreaded enemies, the Cylons. But after an act of treachery on the eve of the ceremony, the Cylons launch a devastating surprise attack, destroying the Colonies' home planets and most of their military strength. A lone flagship battlestar, the Galactica, led by Commander Adama (Lorne Greene), remains to aid the surviving colonists on their epic journey for a new home to a far-off legendary planet — Earth. They must survive the pursuing Cylons in a series of epic battles that will determine the fate of the human race in this non-stop action-packed classic filled with cutting-edge special effects by John Dykstra (Star Wars, Spider-Man).

  • Battlestar Galactica

    By Alden Solo
    I happened to pass by the living room and saw this show on TV. I went, Oh I’ve heard of this. I sat down and watched, and I liked what I saw. Later we found this on Netflix and we watched the entire show. It was great. This is probably the best American show of the 70s.
  • Only in SD format

    By mRobert71
    Love this version of the show, but would greatly appreciate the option to also purchase an HD version of the series.
  • Why isn't this offered in HD?

    C'mon, Apple. Get with the times. The Blu-rays have been available for the original BSG for a couple of years, so there's no excuse for you to not offer the downloads in HD. Same with Space: 1999.

    😢🙏🏻 So Sad to to here the passing of Richard Hatch RIP 😢
  • good story writing, dialog; editing subpar

    By cynsa
    The story writing on this classic series still holds up, even if the effects are cheesy as all get-out and TV editing has gotten a lot more sophisticated with greater digital control. But the stories, the relationships and especially the dialog is surprisingly good for a weekly SciFi series. The sound track is also excellent. The acting is pretty good as well.
  • Rest of the Seasons

    By BedBug28
    I'm glad iTunes has season 1 but what about the other seasons? We have all the seasons of the New Updated Battlestar Galactica but how about all the seasons of The Classic show?
  • This is BSG

    By Elliott1701
    I saw this on re run in high school, it is one of the best sci fi shows ever made. I enjoy this far more than the reboot.
  • Why????

    By readerholic
    I previously bought the whole season. I knew it started with a 3 part episode. But I just noticed that the missing episode is now available. And iTunes insists I pay an additional 1.99 for something I had already paid for? Not right. If you're a big BG fan (the original series)it won't be a big deal but the idea that I have pay for something I already paid for is annoying to say the least.

    LOVED the series! Do we know if this version on iTunes has the uncut pilot?
  • Still great fun.

    By iHugh
    I too loved the show when it first aired, I was 17 and searching for decent sci-fi was an obsession. BG was a well executed and fun show that was one of the better shows of its day. It was a shame they had to end after only one season. As the reviews have tended to compare the classic with the reimagined BSG on SyFy, I'd have to say there is no comparing the two. I loved the original, but the new BSG is superior in every way. Much better writing, great performances, stellar production, brilliant scoring and a story that is breathtaking. The critics have called it the best show on television for good reason. So, buy the oldie for fun and lighten up on the new BSG bashing please!
