Default Re: BSG Telemovies on DVD

I watched a bit of the one cyfilon mentioned and noticed something that has been the subject of debate in the past.
In the narration done by Lorne Greene he describes part of the battle of Cimtar and clearly states that there were 5 Battlestars involved in the ambush. There have been arguments for other numbers, but this would seem to clear that up for me, as the source comes from the original writer/writers of the show.

Also in the pilot there is also a scene in the landram where Apollo gives us a little history lesson about Cylons while talking to boxey. That is cut from many versions.

That's a good scene, but cut (IMO) because it was perceived as too 'deep' for a network series at the time.

Looks like someone has gone through the trouble of fusing them all together

The Cylon original story that Adama gives, or Apollo in the land ram?

What was Mission Galactica anyway?

Mission Galactica is a Theatrical Cut of Living Legend and Fire In space shown in Europe. It used alternet shots and added a bit to the story. (changed a few things as well) It is quite good,and I had a copy on VHS. I currently have a converted DVD version now. Nothing like having a complete DVD collection

Ahhh, thank the Lords of Kobol for the deleted scenes....

That Landram scene was great! Should never have been cut.

Glad they cut that song though. Man that was bad.

Am I right that the Telemovies are still not available on DVD or Blu-Ray ?

(Aside from three of them on a GERMAN only release)

Yeah, I'd love to see Mission Galactica available in the US on DVD. I have the VHS version, but Good Lord I don't know if it will play. I'd love to convert it to DVD or just a digital copy for my external HDD.

They added in some sound effects remixes from Buck Rogers also.... when Vipers would go down the launch tubes, you'd hear the ticka-ticka-ticka-ticka-ticka from fighters being launched in Buck Rogers.
