THE GALACTICA TELEMOVIES

Although Battlestar Galactica had been a hit series, it had also been an expensive series, costing a then record of $1 million per episode. If you adjusted for inflation, Battlestar Galactica would probably be the most expensive television show ever made. The series lost money its first season, and an attempt was made by Universal to recoup its losses (although it had already easily recouped the $14 million spent on the pilot when it was released in theaters around the world).

A number of video movies were quickly carved out of the various television episodes. Some fare well, others not so well. Most of the movies have chopped and misplaced scenes, bad dubbing, costume and hairstyle changes from one scene to the next, and plenty of plot confusion. Today almost all of these telemovies have vanished, which is probably for the best.
