    Yes, and the Battlestar release was presented in "Sensaround" (sp?) a supposedly awesome surround sound system, which didn't do much. I remember some very large speakers on the floor of the theater, but not much difference in the actual audio presentation.

    My father took my brother and me to see a double feature of Midway and Earthquake in Sensurround. I don't think I've ever spent a longer period of time in a theater (before working in one, of course).

    Universal is saying there is no truth to this rumor. Too bad.

    If anyone wants some notes on how to tweak the original BSG DVD's 1.1 Sensurround mix to somewhat better approximate what was heard in theaters, let me know and I'll dig 'em up. [​IMG]

    Yep, they made two kinds of old-school Cylon Centurians for that, and then utilized them for the Galactica finale. And then they made action figures of them. You get a better look at them as action figures than you do in the show itself.

    (There is also another version of that which has a different belt, and extra skirt-thing on the front -- and is an exclusive to one retailer. They will also be making a battle damaged version later this year, and a gold one too.)

    Not being a fan of the recent incarnation of the series, I say good deal! Very excited about the 3rd redo. If Star Trek is the huge hit I'm predicting, then I think this might actually be a possibility, and Universal's recent "not gonna happen" be damned!!

    Retro sci fi (sy-fy?) is coming back in a big way!!
