    I've held off getting the 4.0 set, as I wonder if there'll be a "complete Season 4 set" when this comes out.
    Although that didn't with The Sopranos Season 6 pt.1 & pt.2, so maybe not. Either way I still have them all on my Sky+ anyway :D

    No doubt there'll be less extras than on the R1 too, but its such a hassle importing them I'll live without

    Seen as only two episodes of what will be on this DVD have even aired yet, not really surprising

    I caved back when 4.0 was released, so I'll be picking up this one :D.

    And, yeah, no cover art yet. I don't remember how much in advance the artwork was published last time.

    ^ I don't think it was even annouced until after the 10 episodes had finished

    Gah! R2 BSG sets! Why do you taunt me so? I STILL don't have Season 3 or 4.0 - I just can't bring myself to spend the money on subpar merchandise. I really have got to sort out an import.

    Apologies for taunting :D. Btw. I always have to think of "Knights of the Round Table" when I hear or read the word "taunt" or "taunting" ;).

    They've got the episodes in DVD quality. That's all I really care about. I'm not crazy on extras, really.

    If you want to import, why not go through Amazon.com? The dollar's pretty cheap at the moment, I think. And their shipping costs aren't too bad.

    I really think the prices of this and 4.0 are ridiculous. The complete season would cost you £50+, when the first 3 plus the mini-series are currently in boxset form for around £30. Even the stupidly overpriced Law and Order: SVU doesn't hit £50/season.

    I'm not so bothered about extras either, but we don't get the extended episodes either, and that really pisses me off. But yeah, Amazon.com is the way forward.

    ^ No Unfinished Business for Season 3, but we did get the extended Pegasus in Season 2

    The R2 sets are marginally better than the R2 releases for The Dead Zone and Numb3rs. All of which have loads of extras on the R1 discs, and none on the R2 sets. At least with the BSG releases, there are SOME extras. Fair to say that they could be a lot better though.

    I used to get pretty pissed off with this, but then I remembered that I rarely watch any of the extras anyway. The extended episodes aside, I'm not that bothered about anything other than getting the episodes in DVD quality.

    I'll get this release, but anyone who needs a lot of the sets should probably wait a while. I remember when Season 3 came out, it was about £40. A week or two later they brought out the Seasons 1-3 set for about £45.

    It's definitely worth waiting. I did it for season 1 - 3. But I couldn't wait to re-watch S4.0 so I picked it up immediately :-D. But I agree that £50 is way too much for one season.

    I'll be getting Season 4.0 for my birthday...maybe 4.5 will be out by XMas?
    I assume that the Gaeta webisodes will be on 4.5? I'd be pretty disapointed if they're not.

    ^ Knowing Playback, (the company that releases these on R2) probably not

    Anyone got the SFX magazine BSG special issue? Just got it yesterday, and inside is an ad for the Final Season R2 DVD
    It gives a list of extras but says "Universal have stressed to us that the following list is provisional, but have guaranteed that there'll be over four hours of bonus material"

    What they have is-
    A Disquiet Follows My Soul unrated version
    Islanded In A Stream of Stars unrated version
    Daybreak unrated extended version
    Deleted scenes
    Sneak Peak at either Caprica or The Plan
    David Eick's video blogs
    "What the Frak is Going on with Battlestar Galactica?"
    The Face of the Enemy webisodes
    SciFi.com web featurettes
    A look back

    Now if that all goes to plan that's too shabby IMO.

    Still list 1 June as the release date too
    And there's some to be confirmed artwork on the site too

    If that does turn out to be the final art, yes it Six AGAIN, but it does look pretty sweet

    ^^ Certainly better than most previous R2 releases. No sign of the podcasts again then. :rolleyes:

    All that and all you can do is complain. tsk

    I don't really care about the commentaries to be honest. I'd listen to them if they were on, but can't say I'm deeply upset if they're not

    So long as they have the extended episodes then I'll be happy. Extras are nice, but not as nice as having more Battlestar to watch after the show ends. ;)
