BSG Season 1 Makes IGN's Best List

The first season of Battlestar Galactica has made IGN's Top 25 TV Shows on DVD list at number 19.

Here's what they have to say:

19. Battlestar Galactica Season One (2004) - Look, even if it had no extra features, this would still be a great box set, simply because the series itself is so compelling and wonderful, but in fact, the collection of the first season of the critically acclaimed Sci Fi Channel offers quite a bit. Universal hasn't always put out the best TV show box sets, but they did the fans right with this one, most especially when it came to including the three hour miniseries that aired a year before the series, and is essential viewing to begin the storyline on Galactica. There are several fun and informative behind the scenes features, and best of all, nearly every episode features commentary from executive producers Ronald Moore and David Eick, who go into great detail on their thought process when it comes to various scenes and situations on the show. Some commentaries by cast members would be a welcome addition to future sets, but this is a very well done set for a rather amazing show that should be required viewing. So say we all.

Firefly made #5 and the show Freaks and Geeks took the top spot.
