Thanks shoppe.

Welcome to the HUKD FOrums

Thanks, just ordered. Having heard/read good things about the whole series, this is a nice cheap taster to see if I want to get the whole lot!

Thank you for this, emma. Now just need to find a cheap Season 2. Missed out on it when it was £12.

Thanks so much emma this has been on my "to buy" list for a while now!

It's £16 at cdwow now, can't see them reducing it again any time soon:

Like grounded said, season 2 is available for £15.99 (or less) at cd-wow. You won't be able to find season 2 at that price anytime soon (it's a 6 DVD release don't forget)!
Got this one from hmv for a bit more, but at £2.99 this is a steal.

Welcome to the forums you two! :thumbsup:

Thank you emma, but I've been here for a while now. Perhaps it was Grounded you wanted to welcome?

In any case, thank you Grounded. I'll have a look at the CDWow offer; as you say, it seems like a good price for a relatively recent release.

Thanks emma, nice price.

Ordered earlier and just got email to say its on backorder so fingers crossed.

This is not season 1 right?
but some miniseries because duration time is 2hours 55 mins

Nickbogi, it's not season 1. This disc contains the pilot episodes that were made prior to that.

It goes:

Miniseries - e.g Pilot
Season 1 - 13 Episodes
Season 2 - 20 Episodes
Season 3 - not released on DVD yet.

Not that I am a sci-fi geek I was just looking for Season 2 yesterday as BSG is the only thing my wife will watch at the moment and we are on to the last few from S1. £15.99 was the cheapest I could find at CDWOW. Don't 'spose there are any discount vouchers at present?

You should be able to knock £2 off that by going through a £1 off voucher link, and a £1 discount code.

Excellent Deal! Now all I need is to find season 1 nice and cheap somewhere.

Just had email to say my copy has been despatched. :thumbsup:

Yeah, mine's dispatched too! That was fast :lol:

Got my season1 from Virgin instore at £19-99. Got 10% off by using Virgin Credit card. This was about 10 days ago. Not sure if that is cheap enough for you.

Ooh, mine arrived this morning, less than 24 hours after I ordered it.

So, I've just watched this one. I really enjoyed it. Can't wait to find a bargain deal on the first series!!!

emmajk - have you been watching BG?? I'm halfway through season 2 now. Utterly amazing!

Original Poster

Just finished season 2 two days ago. I was very disappointed actually. There are 6 discs in the set and I finished disc 5 and it was absolutely brilliant all the way and ran to the DVD player to put in disc 6, only to find it was the bonus disc. !!!! I need more!!! I've looked on google video etc etc....

On the BG we page, there are "webisodes" which occur after season 2 but before season 3 but they are not playing on my PC!! And I checked youtube and they only have webisodes 8,9 and 10!! Does anyone know where I can see them all!!

I love Battlestar Galactica!!

Have you tried this link … Have you tried this link emma?]http://www.scifi.com/battlestar/video/index.php?cat=webisodes&vid=30793



Yes, that's the one I'm looking at. The advert plays before the 'sode, then there is nothing more.

Sorry, emma. You need to find a USA based http proxy (best to find one that allows annonymity), configure your browser to use that and then it should work. Alternatively, you could try bittorrent.

The webisodes won't play for IP addresses outside of the USA.

Any quick and easy way for me to do this? I don't have a clue how... :oops:

Try to find the proxy settings in your browser and enter this string of numbers: 72.3.140.10
For the port setting enter 80

It's very slow though, so do be patient. Alternatively, you can try others on this list:
xroxy.com/pro…htm

You can download all the webisodes using bittorrent (and season 3 of galactica if you want).

Drop me a pm if you aren't up on using it, doesn't take long to explain.

I tried that proxy thing, but it was taking a while and I had to get my beauty sleep, so went to bed. Looked at the OH's PC this morning and there's something bittorrenty going on which says something about Battlestar, so we'll see what he's found Thanks for the help guys!

Any luck with the download emma? Season 3 episodes can be located on bit torrent too, if you're inclined to look for them.

Original Poster

Could not get the webisodes working - got the proxy working ok, but the vids wouldn't play after adverts, even though it said connecting. I left it for about 2 hours, but nothing.... . The OH has managed to download a few of the season 3 ones, but I wanna catch the webisodes first.

I can't believe they do those special webisodes and then only let people in America watch them. They don't even let people in Canada watch them (I saw that on a forum) !!

Yes, it's quite daft in this day and age. Have media companies learned nothing?

What I've seen of season 3 seems more interesting than 2.
