he complete set of all five series of the TV smash hit Battlestar Galactica.

Following a devastating attack on their homeworlds, the only surviving humans of the Twelve Colonies of Kobol cross the galaxy in a space convoy headed by the Battleship Galactica. In hot pursuit are the ruthless Cylons, powerful robots who turned on their human creators and brought about the near annihilation of mankind. The voyagers' last hope is to find the fabled 13th colony: Earth. But with their nemeses in hot pursuit and the revelation that the artificial machines now have the ability to take human form, it's going to be very far from an easy quest.

for anyone unsure about whether or not to buy this, do not hesitate! i have it on dvd, and am far from the biggest sci-fi fan normally, but this really is gripping stuff

Agreed. Worth every penny.

A superb series that transcends SF really. Great acting, beautiful score and they really made something special. It would be stunning on blu ray. Only thing I can see is that the films dont seem to be in the box set.

They lost the plot when they started messing around with the spiritual and religious side.
Also, needed more Xena Warrior Princess.
Not sure it was 5 seasons though; season 4 had a pause half way before continuing and concluding.

Frackin toasters.
#5
There were 4 seasons, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0407362/episodes ...good price I guess, though will probably be half the price in a few months.

#7
Only £82.93 at Blockbuster or £ 79.99 at Amazon

I ordered this over 6 weeks ago, description stated delivery in 5 - 7 days and the order status was always on being processed it was never got to the packing and posted stage and i couldnt contact PLAY because i didnt have a phone and the only way to contact PLAY is by telephone because they dont have a email address any more I cancelled the order last because it felt pointless and I used a £1 OFF coupon as well that im not going to get back from play

THE ONLY WAY TO CONTACT PLAY ABOUT A ORDER IS BY TELEPHONE IS A JOKE

do you haveany facts to back this up because i checked both websites and have seen no evidence of what you are saying is correct

i even checked amazon.com which is the american version and prices are not what you are stating if you factor in shipping

I think he means the DVD version, not the Blu-ray - some people are still very clueless about Blu-ray, so the mistake is easy to make if you dont know or follow the format

Hi - noticed this set at this price a few days ago but with the bank holiday on the way it might be worth holding that wee bit longer ;0
#12
Indeed play.com usually do some bank holiday madness deals. I can't justify this price yest but if it gets the right side of £60 then i will buy
#13
Do not buy this from play, i ordered this two months ago from them and ever since it's been "awaiting stock" despite saying on the product page available for despatch.
The only way to contact them is by phone and not once did they send me an email to apologise for the delay as every other website does, such as HMV which even includes vouchers in these emails.
This is just one example of the shoddy customer service i have increasingly come to expect from play that means they have lost all future custom from me.

there were, but as the last season was split into two because of the writers strike, they capitalised on this with the dvd releases by calling the last two sets "season four" and "the final season"

so while technically there are only 4 whole series, they were released as 5 on disc.
#15
Cannot see that it contains the webisodes or The Plan (which is doing the rounds on Sky Movies at the moment).

Hot, if it does have it.

I really really don't see that happening! If you look at The Sopranos and Friends for example, both were at the £100 mark a few years ago on DVD, now friends is £39.99 and The Sopranos is now £50 instore at hmv, both of them are now pretty much at rock bottom prices for each in my opinion. The Sopranos and Friends are both a little over 5000 minutes and Battlestar Galactica is around 4200 with the mini series and razor movie, so comparable to Friends and The Sopranos. If you look at it a blu-ray boxset is twice the price of a comparable DVD boxset, but if you look at The Sopranos blu-ray the first series (13 ep) or just half of the sixth series (10 ep ish) they are both £30, so a complete The Sopranos boxset should be £30x7=£210, then take of a bit off the price because thats the way when they are all together, but I don't think that will get you anywhere near the £89.99 of this boxset!!!

The Plan is pretty worthless anyway and really not worth worrying about.

HMV are doing a much better deal

http://hmv.com/hmvweb/displayProductDetails.do?ctx=280;0;-1;-1;-1&sku=973634


Includes the mini series and Razr I believe, and in a limited edition tin. A friend of mine was able to get this for £50 instore at HMV once, I've been keeping an eye out for a repeat of that.


Your link suggests it is DVD rather then Bluray
#19


It's the wrong format (just like the last guy to post "a better deal".
#20
on the contrary - there are some relevant scenes in it and Dean Stockwell is pretty awesome in it. Far more relevant than some of the stand-alone stories that add nothing to the story arc. Its worth having in your complete collection.
