  1.  Could've been a contender

    Posted: 

    I would imagine anyone paying this much for a TV boxset would have already seen the series. But if for some reason you want to buy a boxset unseen and are actually reading reviews to help you decide then here are my thoughts:

    BSG was at its best when it was doing action stories. When it started trying to moralise all the time and got away from its overarcing story it floundered.

    The characters were nice and solid at first, but as time wore on their personality changed on a whim from week to week depending on what story the writers wanted to tell. This wasn't an organic progression or development of personalities over time, but a rather jolting transation from week to week.

    This could have truly been the greatest drama ever, but instead inconsistent characters and variable pacing brings it down to 3 out of 5 stars.

    Certainly better than a lot of TV out there, but it could have been so much better.
