Still my favorite show of all time. Those that get to watch it now are so much more lucky than those of us who had to wait through those excruciatingly long season breaks.

Amazon UK has the region-free version (everything's the same, except it's missing "The Plan") for 29, which works out to about $48 shipped to the US:

I was (and still am) a huge fan of the show which I saw during it's original run on TV.

But I have to say that I feel sorry for those people who watch it in marathon sessions without the regular breaks.

One of the great joys of old time television was the regular anticipation of waitng for your favorite show to return. It gave you something to look forward to every week. That sense of anticipation was as important as the show itself.

I don't think people today are so much more lucky than us when it comes to watching TV.

I would agree. When that big reveal happened at the end of season 2 and I knew I had to wait for season 3 to premiere to see what happened next, the anticipation was agonizing at times. Heck, when I watched TNG I was always excited when the new season came on the air. Now I just wait for a season to be ready to and go through the episodes at my pace. It isn't quite the same, unfortunately.

Huh? I hated(and still do) waiting for "next week", or "next season".
Thank God for the DVR, as I can save a ton of time getting caught up on TV watching. Plus no commercials.
I'm all for nostalgia...but not in this instance.

I apologize for bumping this thread, but I noticed something quite interesting in the JP Season 4 blu-ray release that was released June 2013.

On the amazon.jp listing, it mentions that it has The Face of the Enemy webisodes as a special feature.

Can anyone confirm this? Because if it's true, this is the first time I think they've ever shown up on any blu-ray release.

Hi there GoldMotel and Cab.
After accidently seing this post, I got quite interested myself, and just jumped the gun, as a blind buy
I recieved my set yesterday, and checked it out today.
The only previous copy I have, is bought on Ioffer, which I think is a bad copy of VCR recording, on a DVD-R disc.. Living in Denmark, I have had no way to see this online, or anywhere else. Like you guys, I have not been able to find this anywhere at all, so this was indeeed interesting news to me
The sad news, I'm afraid, is that there is no english subs on this set, only Japanese.
But then again, who cares, because........ I CAN CONFIRM, that all 10 webisodes is included on disc six, in glorious HD
Mind you, it is not HBO quality, but still, real and true 16:9 HD.
Hope this will answer your questions.
And so say we all

Great news on the Webisodes. Didn't think that would ever happen.
I already own the set so I won't be purchasing just for this.

On another note, if it's not even HBO quality IYO, (which is already compressed for TV broadcast) it sounds like the picture quality is very poor then.

Cool! Thanks for the info! Just a quick question, do the webisodes include the enhanced commentary that was available online? And are the JP subs hardcoded?

Well, if I recall, the webisodes never even aired on TV anyway, so it wouldn't be HBO quality. In fact, the show itself was intentionally made gritty, so it would never be HBO quality (in the sense of the PQ is closer to The Wire over GOT).

I'm assuming the PQ on the webisodes is much better than their online incarnations, though.

Well , IMHO it's not a bad PQ, I'm more than satisfied, just it is not 5 star rating, would give PQ a 4 (which in this case is above and beyond anything this have ever looked like)

As I never have seen this online, when they aired, I'm sorry, i have no way of knowing about the commentary.
The subs (again-in Japanese is either ON or OFF )

The PQ is well above what I had expected (feared?), actually it falls nice in line with the look af the rest of the series. Was afraid it might be in SD on the BD-disc, but it cimes in true HD

Did they upgrade the "Resistance" Webisodes? If I recall they were SD on the US set.

I'm currently on the last 3 episodes of this show ( after watching the whole series all the way through for the first time) and I'm torn on the show.

On one hand you have the awesome: great acting, great characters, cool premise, moments of brillliance.

On the other hand, this show really frustrates me: Every time something potentially show-changing happens, the show works REALLY hard to bring everything back to square one all the time and it shows.

[Show spoiler]
- every time Baltar gets in trouble he's saved by something ridiculous, yet we can flush minor characters out the airlock no problem
- the amazing Admiral Cain situation which is really annoyingly resolved. Yeah lets have Cain killed by someone else so we don't have to change any of the main characters, or even deal with the situation. Cop out.
- Final four revealed? Just pardon them and not much will change.
- Awesome Gaita (sp?) rebellion? Can't have that, lets get Adama back to command post-haste.
- Apollo gets fat? Show him with a jump rope and then he's skinny the next episode.


It's like this show is just pretending to be anything other than an episodic show where everything is reset at the end of each episode. With Star Trek that's cool because I'm expecting it, but with this it's frustrating.

You can predict how the storyline will play out by whatever would have to happen for things to be generally reset at the end of each ep.
