Battlestar Galactica: Razor (Blu-ray)
In present day, Lee Adama (Jamie Bamber) assumes command of the Pegasus and through a series of flashbacks we see what happened to the ship during and after the initial Cylon attack on the Twelve Colonies.
Razor is a well orchestrated chapter in the series that fills in the blanks from season 2 episode "Pegasus" pertaining to Adm. Helena Cain (Michelle Forbes). The pacing is tight with lots of action and drama, and it's fun to revisit the show every now and then to remind me of why I liked it so much during its initial run.
- VC-1/1080p encode on a BD-50 disc
- Gritty and grainy interior shots
- Ample color saturation
- Exterior shots are sharp and detailed
- DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack
- Immersive experience
- Excellent dynamic range
- Intelligible dialog
The audio/video quality is on par with the other Battlestar Galactica Blu-ray releases, so there's nothing new to report.
- U-Control with "The Oracle," and "Battlestar Actual"
- Deleted Scenes
- Unrated Extended Edition commentary
- The Look of Battlestar Galactica featurette
- BD-Live enabled with trivia challenge and game
If you couldn't afford the luxury box set that was released in 2009, Universal has been kind enough to release each of the seasons on Blu-ray every couple of months in order to accommodate your budget. Razor is a must own for fans of the show and really fills in a lot of the back story. Recommended for fans.
