Well parts of it look like my shots of old Star Wars Laser Discs that's how bad the grain is. Frankly I wish they would take the intended grain and stick it !

Yep, this is definitely one of the best, if not the best, television series that I've ever seen, so I finally purchased the entire series on blu-ray. I remember being extremely saddened when the show came to an end, and can't wait to watch it all again.

Hoping the wife will join me this time around!

I can't wait to see how the Blood and Chrome Blu-Ray will look. The trailer footage alone makes it look quite stunning compared to BSG's minimalist stuff for most of the show. Hopefully they didn't go crazy with the grain.

Don't hold your breath, SyFy is doing its best to cheapskate by on the good faith of Sci-Fi fans while it morphs into the complete opposite of its original premise.

They are doing their best to bury this show since the half hazard asinine amalgamation of an original property, Caprica, with BSG good will cash-in did not pan out.

SyFy's modus operandi now is to do the bare minimum with comparatively cheap inane 'reality' programing and reruns of actual Sci-Fi shows in order to retain its viewer base.

Judging from the trailer it was probably made by someone who was on production or near it but certainly not sanctioned by SyFy since it has a pointed coda at them.

Both my wife and my neighbor's wife can't stand science fiction, or so they thought! To their amazement, they were completely hooked by the first episode. My wife wants to watch the whole series again.

Blood and Chrome is a no go.

The CGI sets looks absolutely terrible to my eyes. I'm not really upset that the show isn't happening.

It's been so long I forgot which episode I left off on. I'm somewhere in the third season. I really need to get back into the rhythm of watching these.

Edit: What is this Portlandia show? I've never even heard of it.

LOL... nice video! It was nice to see some of the cast together again.

I didn't lose my house or job over it, but the rest of that was pretty much the way it happened to me when I first sat down to watch Battlestar Galactica on DVD.

Portlandia is a sketch comedy show on IFC, lampooning the stereotypes of Portland, Oregon.

I really like the artwork Darknight posted in this thread, unfortunately the links are down back at his post here:
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...1#post17010291

Does anyone have the files for that artwork? I recently bought the blu-ray set of the complete series in the cube packaging and wouldn't mind putting it in some normal blu-ray cases for ease of access. Still keeping the cube packaging because I think it's cool.

Or, just throwing this out there, if anyone knows where to find the official insert artwork for the second version of this series released in the normal blu-ray cases. This one:
http://www.amazon.com/Battlestar-Gal...6104731&sr=8-3

...that would be great as well. (Providing it's ok to ask for that official artwork here)

I knew it was a longshot but I contacted Universal asking them about the packaging I even said I'd purchase it from them but they just said "cannot help you". Didn't even give any alternative suggestions.

I'm pretty sure there are scans of the official artwork for the second set, but they're from slightly reflective digipacks, not inserts for a standard blu-ray case. You'll probably have better luck getting the custom artwork if you're looking for something to fit in a standard case, as I know there were several versions of the custom stuff for various sized multi-disc cases.

Got all excited when I saw a new post here... thought the complete BSG Blu-ray set was on sale for $69 like the Farscape set

Oh well- nice to see some of the BSG cast again anyway....

I'm still new to the terminology but when you say "digipacks" do you mean the clear cases the second set comes in as seen here?
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61aJtoPl6FL.jpg
(like the Game of Thrones season 1 blu-ray set)

That would be cool to get them. I'd preferably like authentic or close as possible to authentic cases. I don't even know are digipacks like that available for purchase empty on their own?

I'll start Googling after I post this but will ask as well if anyone knows of a place to get artwork and insert scans as well.

Thanks for the responses.

...sorry to disappoint Rob maybe someday!

Just bought the individual whole season sets for $19.99 each at Best Buy up here in Canada! They price matched Futureshop and used my giftcard, didn't cost me a penny!
