One of the reasons they can offer SS shipping is that the estimates are so long that they don't have to spend CS resources on "where's my package" complaints.

While I almost always get my SS packages within a week, often less, they have occasionally taken the full two weeks. Especially with large, heavy, or oddly shaped boxes.

The box for theUK version of BSG looks to be some kind of tin, and is quite different from the US one. May not be as classy, but it's probably much more compact, which is a plus in my book.

I signed up for this. I hope it's a region free release, and that it's not too much difference in $s.

Now that is a much more sensible design then the ugly thing they came up with for the US release.

I wouldn't call the US release ugly (in fact, I'd say it looks much classier than this UK release)... it just won't fit on a shelf and I've got nowhere to put the damned thing.

hahah the UK release looks like a toaster! That's pretty cool! I can't tell whether or not i like the box design of the US release because I cant figure out how it is organized.

Have you guys noticed that Amazon changed the July 28th date to no announced date?

Packaging have no problem with me too.
But many were not satisfied to it.

Heroes is coming out soon in the UK, so those would be a good measuring stick to see if the Uni TV BDs are region free. They also cost less than the US versions...last time I checked. Fingers crossed this BSG release follows suit.

I kind of like the UK box with that Centurion. Might look too much like a mini-fridge though.

I'm still upset Uni didn't use my Battlestar and/or Pilot Survival kit(with dog tags and maps/manuals, woulda been sweet) idea for boxing.

IIRC, the HD-DVD version of Season 1 had different theme music (plus I think slightly different extras) depending on which region it was purchased from.

If the Bluray version follows a similar practice, would this make a difference to your purchasing decision?

One can only hope that the studios include both versions, regardless of region.

The US season 1 had a different opening cinema/music, then 2-4.5 they used the UK original opening. So my guess is that be the only difference, the UK opening in season 1.

I like the UK tin, but I think I'll probably stick with the US release.

Absolutely. If the American version doesn't have the right music and the UK version does, I'm buying the UK version.

I actually liked the US S1 music/intro better (not that I feel strongly either way).

It looks like no "The Plan". I wasn't expecting it, but it would have been nice to have it all in one box.

Based on this, it appears to be the following.. though it's too hard to be exact:
Disc 1: Mini-series

Disc 2-4: Season 1, 13 eps

Disc 6-10: Season 2, 20 eps

Disc 11-14: Season 3, including webisodes between S2&S3 (19 eps)

Disc 15: Razor (unrated/extended, and broadcast)

Disc 16-20: Season 4 (20 eps)

In the full set breakdown, disc 15 is listed as "Battlestar Galactica: Razor". You tell us if it's included or not...
RDarrylR's Avatar RDarrylR 12:15 PM 05-19-2009
So still no Canadian pricing that i've seen. Has anyone else spotted the Cdn MSRP? I don't see it listed on amazon.ca yet either.
HDMe2's Avatar HDMe2 01:36 PM 05-19-2009
I was expecting everything from Mini-to-Finale, that means Razor + Regular/Extended versions of Pegasus & the last 2 episodes (I believe both of those had extended versions advertised).

I was half-hoping for "The Plan" but didn't figure it would happen since that one hasn't aired yet.... As long as they eventually release that on Blu (unlike what they have done with Caprica thus far) I have no problem buying the complete + The Plan later.

Of course I'll be waiting on a good sale to pick up the whole set

How about I'll tell you when it ships.

Maybe it's just me, but I'm not seeing the Face of the Enemy webisodes included on the set...?
JakiChan's Avatar JakiChan 03:11 AM 05-31-2009
I've read that they're on there. Man, Watchmen and BSG on July 28th? I better take some vacation days...
HDMe2's Avatar HDMe2 01:55 PM 05-31-2009
While I would like to see all the Webisodes on there as well...

to be fair, the "complete series" would not have to include them.

Why, you ask?

Because IF they were truly required viewing for the complete series, then they'd have aired them on TV.

The fact that they put them on the Web, where some segment of the viewership never saw (and perhaps never knew about) them... says they couldn't have been deemed important.

I also seem to have read somewhere that the production crew wasn't 100% pleased with having to do the Webisodes as they didn't get paid to do them like the rest of the series... they were sort of strongarmed into it and didn't see any Web-generated revenue... but I digress.

I watched the Webisodes from between season 2 and season 3, and those were good. I did not watch the next batch of Webisodes at all, and I can't say I felt like anything was missing... but I surely would like to watch them, which is why I too hope they are included... but I won't see the "complete" set as "incomplete" if they aren't there.

Maybe, but they're canon. So I'm glad they are on there (and I've seen elsewhere that they are).

That was one of the reasons behind the writers strike. Now they get revenue from things like that.

I would disagree. You missed a lot. Why did Gaeta mutiny? Yeah, the webisodes told you.

The Webisodes I did watch from after season 2 were good... so I have no doubt they did a similarly good job on the ones I didn't see.

BUT

The story was not crafted in such a way that I was "lost" and didn't know why Gaeta mutinied. It seemed pretty clear to me, watching the series, that he could have many reasons for being motivated... not the least of which was losing his leg and seeing the cylons being embraced and offered more respect than he seemed to get.

I gather watching the Webisodes give additional insight... but "additional" is the key word to me.

IF they crafted a story where the Webisodes were required, then that was a disservice to the TV viewer. The Webisodes should ADD to the story, not fill in gaps.

So I'll be happy to watch and hope they are there... but wouldn't feel ripped off if they were missing.

Maybe the missing webisodes will be made available as a BD-Live extra, or maybe as a mail-in offer for a disc version?

I ordered/downloaded mine from the Amazon video download service. They were free and seemed to be the best quality version that was available at the time. I'm not sure if they're still available anymore, though (can't check from work).
gorthocar's Avatar gorthocar 06:47 AM 06-03-2009
I'm curious if some of the season 1 HD DVD issues will be cleaned up in this release. In some scenes in some episodes, there were very bad lip sync issues. And more annoyingly, some camera shots must have had a little dust or debris on the lense so that it looked like you had a couple of dead pixels on your TV. It is probably too early for anybody to have an early copy to check. If it still is an issue, it is virtually impossible to miss.
