BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: SEASON 2.0

SEASON 2.0 OF THE EXHILARATING SPACE EPIC ARRIVES ON DVD DECEMBER 20, 2005 FROM UNIVERSAL STUDIOS HOME ENTERTAINMENT

"The best show on television" - Newsday

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. -- November 17, 2005 -- The intensity and adventure of the science-fiction saga Time magazine calls "One of the best dramas on TV" returns when Battlestar Galactica: Season 2.0 blasts off on DVD December 20, 2005, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Fans can re-acquaint themselves with the show and get a sneak peek of all new episodes before those episodes begin airing in January 2006. They will enjoy this thrill-a-minute show that chronicles the courageous struggles of the universe's last handful of human survivors as they seek safe haven from the diabolical Cylon Empire. The three-disc set includes never-before-seen deleted scenes from the Hugo Award-winning series, plus podcast commentaries from producer Ron Moore, and is presented in Dolby 5.1 surround for an explosive experience. DVD is priced at $49.98; preorder close is November 15, 2005.

Battlestar Galactica: Season 2.0 finds the ragtag remnants of the Twelve Colonies of Men pursued by renegade robots intent on eradicating humankind as growing dissent from within threatens to destroy the group's alliance. Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell head up the sterling cast as Commander William "Husker" Adama, and President Laura Roslin, an ill-matched pair who must put aside their differences to keep the disparate band of survivors alive. Also featured are Jamie Bamber (Band of Brothers), James Callis (Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason), Aaron Douglas (I, Robot), Tricia Helfer (Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of Charlie's Angels), Grace Park (Human Cargo) and Katee Sackhoff (Halloween: Resurrection).

Featuring mind-blowing special features including podcast commentaries from producer Ron Moore, more than 40 never-before-seen deleted or extended scenes, plus an exclusive sneak peek at all-new upcoming episodes, the Battlestar Galactica: Season 2.0 DVD takes fans of this science fiction phenomenon into the far reaches of its gritty, richly imagined universe.
