Universal Studios has embraced DVD & Blu-Ray technology with all of the affection of a cactus hugging a raccoon.
Before Universal Studios charged full speed ahead into their defective Blu-Ray releases...
...They were having a field day inflicting all sorts of intentional manufacturing damage on traditional DVD releases such as this one from 2003. "Battlestar Galactica - The Complete Epic Series", aside from boasting less than stellar box art (putting it mildly and the least of its problems)....had the following manufacturing flaws...
1. Cracked discs sitting in the trays when you first opened this set after just buying it.
2. Disc freeze on random discs depending upon which set you bought. The set I bought had the disc freeze occurrring on Side 1, Disc 1. Where "Saga of a Star World" was placed. (Universal Studios never did like this pilot episode of "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series.)
3. Heavy grain on the episodes of this series. Primarily on...(you guessed it)...."Saga of a Star World."
I guess this is one of those instances (much like their ongoing and fake "Battlestar Galactica" press releases) that Universal Studios hopes that the mere passage of time and loss of memory by the general public will pardon them of their intentional wrongdoing.
