Picked this up from Norwich yesterday and seems like a pretty good deal considering the best i can find elsewhere is £15 per season.

I asked at checkout and apparently it is worldwide.

Comes in a custom box and includes every episode of the now ended battlestar series.

" includes every episode of the now ended battlestar series"

Except the last 10 episodes!

Just a heads up, don't think this includes EVERY episode. If it's the set I'm thinking of it only has half of season 4 as they had to suspend work for a writers strike. As far as I know the rest of season 4 hasn't been released in this country yet but what do you want to bet it comes out as season 5 so as not to get into legal trouble?

Only thing to watch with this is that Season 4 was actually split over 2 years due to the writer's strike etc - and I believe that this box set only covers the first half, so it's not the complete saga. Presumably that box set is imminent, hence the reason this is being discounted.

Still voted hot, as it's a great price for an awesome piece of TV

revelations is the last episode on the disc so yes, im afraid this is only half of season 4.

Isn't that false advertising or something? it states nowhere on the boxset that it only has half o.0

As I said above, bet you they release the remaining episodes to DVD as season 5 to avoid false advertising claims.....

When anyone gets theirs, be sure to check your discs, I didn't and found out a month after buying from HMV that I had two duplicate discs and was missing the final parts of Season 3 - HMV took it back but had ran out instore, the guy said they had many with the same problem...

I think they're being labelled "The Final Season".

I bought this myself a few weeks back though and it's a great deal. Definitely has the best episodes of the series, anyway (wasn't all that keen on the last 10).

Note: this doesn't have the 1-4 boxes in one big box, but is split up into two disc mini-cases with the same artwork as the outer box on each.

I am very tempted. Does anyone know if they are bringing something similar out for 'The complete collection' ? Thanks

Earlier this week in America they announced the complete collection and over there it is coming out on 28th July. So don't expect something similar to come over here in next couple of months as they still have to air the rest of Season 4 on TV. Here's the link : ]http//tv…751

They showed the last ever episode a few weeks back on Sky mate

Looks like the COMPLETE US version is listed on Amazon US, but not yet available
amazon.com/exe…-20
Already with 521 reviews though!, but well overpriced

You can buy R1 Season 4 here, amazon.co.uk/exe…-21
But I don't think even that is the full Season 4 as they have labelled it 4.0

They are to release the FINAL SEASON as 4.5 in the US and labelled 'Final Season' here amazon.co.uk/exe…-21 in the UK on June the 1st

So this is not a bad buy as you could just buy the Final Season when released, but obviously isn't the COMPLETE set. You couldn't buy Seasons 1-4.0, mini-series and Razor for this price individually


Also look out for Caprica
amazon.com/Cap…s_t

still hot hot hot! last half of the final season is not worth watching anyway, especially the last episode - which was utterly atrocious!

um, sky showed the last episode a few weeks ago, they were only running one week behind the US airing.

The last episode was awesome!!!!!

(as was the whole series)

Dnt buy this - theres another boxset coming out in a month or so.

Seems like a fracking good price.

Just buy the last eps seperately, doesnt have to all be in one box.

I thought the last half of Season 4 was actually pretty good, it's the very final episode that let me down. They did such a great job of setting up so many mysteries throughout the seasons and just didn't seem to have any idea how to tie everything up so didn't even bother to try.

Sadly a bad end ends up spoiling the rest of the show, hopefully Lost will handle it a bit better.

Still, it's a decent price as I think I paid £17 for Series 1 on it's own a while back and there are some great episodes in here. You'll probably be able to pick up the final part of Season 4 for a decent price if you wait a while so I don't think it matters that much that this isn't complete.

Also, some people like to buy offline so I think this is still worth posting even if amazon and play are cheaper.

Cold as not complete

I would wait till xmas as there is also one final tv film directed by the Edward James Olmos which will air in October and is expected to answer many of the unanswered questions. I suspect that this will be added to the series 4.2 / 5 set to encourage sales like they did with razor and the webisodes.

Err ... Cobblers!

Yes it did become a little too religious (Father, Son & Holy Ghost stuff was silly) but it was still a fine way to end a series ... and if you've watched up to half way through S4, you have to watch until the end!

This is partly taken from another post elsewhere, but sums up exactly how I felt about the finale. The ending was not even satisfactory - it was plain bad. The characters acted irrationally. The plot was tied up terribly, especially the major, over-reaching plot points. Even the finale's general execution (i.e. pacing, suspense, action, building of tension) was a huge let down. But, if you want some major disappointment then I suggest you watch the second half of the final season!

so in other words, last 10 eps = bad because they made people actually have to think for themselves rather than spell out every single little detail.

ah well, Friends Box Sets it is for you lot instead then!

I suppose in a sense you are dead on there, despite your condescending tone. The reason I found this show to be so gripping was that throughout its course, the writers have always answered the many important questions they have raised, the important ones anyway.

I always preferred this show to other shows (many of which i consider to have rather "lazy" for want of a better word writing) where story lines and arcs are created for seemingly no reason other than to fill an episode and then forgotten about. I have no problem leaving a bit of mystery, but they raised loads of questions in this final season and completely ignored the successful formula they have been using for years.

The writing itself was also sub par and there were far too many weak plots and pointless things happening that it seems like they just gave up and went home, particularly for the final episode.
