Yes!! It was on October 21st, 2003...when Universal Studios released its "Steaming Pile of Donkey Dung"....infamously known as...."Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Epic Series......" to the general public.
Where does one begin when describing their "pull no punches" hatred for this poorly manufactured DVD set?
1. Discovering the cracked discs sitting in the trays as you unwrapped this DVD set for the very first time shortly after buying it on October 21st, 2003?
2. Was it the freezing discs your otherwise "just fine' DVD player struggled to play?
3. Was it the fact that misleading advertising was printed plain as day on the packaging of this DVD set? "Digitally Remastered" my ass. The pilot episode especially looked terrible. As if a VHS copy was dipped in chocolate syrup and then transferred to DVD as is.
If Universal Studios ever gets around to transferring this series to Blu-Ray, run for cover and beware of falling shrapnel!!
Read this blog on October 21st, 2013 as I will have a complete and exhaustive retrospective on this DVD set the likes of which would have made the late "Cinefantastique" magazine publisher Frederick S. Clarke proud!!
Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on Amazon.com...
And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on Amazon.com (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
