BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: RAZOR

This epic 2007 GALACTICA TV movie "event" maintains the reimagined series’ high standards of writing, performances and direction, while adding greater depth and deeper backstory to the ongoing series.

Specifically, RAZOR delves into the history of Michelle Forbes’ character, Admiral Cain, and her command of the Battlestar Pegasus during the Cylon attack on the Colonies It also touches on the events of the first Cylon War, which allows them to bring back the old school, Seventies-styled Cylons -- so you know I love it.

Universal’s 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen disc includes both the original SciFi Channel version as aired, and an extended, home video cut. There are also a handful of webisodes, deleted scenes, a short "Look of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA" featurette, a sneak peek of Season 4, and a commentary accompanying the extended version by writer Michael Taylor and producer Ronald Moore.

Recommended.
