Summary: If you're a fan of the rebooted BSG then this is a worthwhile purchase. You gain a little more understanding and if you're looking for a little more then this is it.
If you've not watched the boxset then do so before watching this and if you don't intend to then don't buy it as a stand alone item.
Conclusion: The second TV movie spin-off from the Battlestar Galactica series following 'Razor' finally arrives and attempts to take us back to the start of the entire Battlestar Galactica story by showing us the lead up to the first attack (from the 2003 mini-series) from the perspective of the Cylons...
Conclusion: I loved BSG almost all the way through. Yes it kind of stumbled through season 3 but 4 is a return to form. This TV-Movie is pointless though, it adds nothing to the first 2 seasons, destroys much of the ambiguity of those early episodes by explaining things that required no explanation, and for...
Conclusion: Another excellent "extra" from BSG, almost on a par with the fantastic Razor. The Plan takes us all the way back to before the Cylon attack on the colonies, and shows us just how involved the Cylons, especially No.1 Brother Cavil were with the main characters over the next year or so.
Conclusion: I personaly quite enjoyed The Plan, It was well acted and gave an interesting insight into the largely unexplained Cylon Leader and his intentions. However it doesn't deter from the fact that it's very unecessary and doesn't give what the Battlestar fans wanted including myself which was to have...
Conclusion: This installment of BSG is very disappointing, i can not believe the once mighty BSG has now fallen to this level, Watching a series of 30-40 second reused clips strung together by new footage, also just clips, smacks of cashing in.
So it's come to this a Battlestar Galactica clipshow

Conclusion: Ok so it's not actually a clipshow but with all the rehashed footage it sure feels like one. Very slow and ultimatley pointless this is best left for the completists only. Sadly its time to lay this great show to rest, instead of keep milking it dry.
Conclusion: Talk about rehash!! You know the episodes in TV series when they use flashback using footage from previous episodes to produce a lazy, lazy episode. Here it is. Talk about milking it!! Very poor... no wonder they added the pointless, pointless nudity.
