It has been more than 40 years since the humans of the 12 Colonies of Kobol did battle with the Cylons, the sentient robots that turned on their creators with deadly results. The robots have observed the armistice that ended the Cylon War, but the promised diplomatic relations between man and machine never materialized. The Cylons remained quiet for years and soon their threat was all but forgotten...

youd be crazy to not spend an extra £1 and get this from hmv rather than get it from this **** company instead. i say 'get it' loosely as thats not very likely to happen if you order from dvdi

Sorry didn't realise this was a bad company, just saw it was the cheapest.

Yup, unreliable company, they seem to either drop-ship or get stock in as required, so there's never any guarantee they'll actually manage to send you the item, worth the extra money for the peace of mind for ordering elsewhere.

yeah great price, but after cashback via HMV the prices are the same nearly so I would get it from them personally too.

I got the SD DVD version and must say I was a little bit disappointed with the HD-DVD set. I watched it on a new top spec sony bravia playing via xbox 360 drive and must say BSG in HD isn't that great, the original DVD version was rather grainy and this clearly remains on the HD transfer.


It's obviously better than the SD(if not by much), but it's only the odd CGI space scene or battle that really looks any better.

Also includes the 'miniseries' too which is essential as season 1 starts without much introduction.

It's supposed to be grainy...

Quite often the case with film transfers, onto hi-def digital media.
Unless, like you say, it's supposed to be grainy.
A fair few HD and Blu-ray movies (and even DVDs - remember how bad the original region 1 copies of "Highlander" looked?) look grainy, but it's not a fault of the hi-def medium.
You're just seeing the film grain.

A similar thing happened in the early days of audio CDs, when they printed warnings that the high quality reproduction of digital CDs could highlight inadequacies in the original analogue recording.

Exactly my point, no reason to upgrade if you already have the SD version:roll:

I got this from HMV a few weeks back and it looks way better than the standard def DVD version. During the occasional scene it is grainy but it seems to only be scenes that involve the hangar deck and on the surface of that planet. Maybe they were using dodgy film or the lighting was off when they did those scenes who knows. Anyway even in those few short scenes it's still far superior to standard dvd and well worth the £12.99 HMV asks (I've never heard of DVDi before). I've started watching season 2 now :thumbsup:.

yeah rite, grainy in space , seriously though i returned mine as disc 2 wouldnt work but i was very disapointed with the HD picture on this title, i was struggling to see any improvement, seems like a botch job to me

personally i wouldnt order anything again from this company after reading recent feedback and im still waiting on my twilight zone dvd's to arrive

I've posted multiple deals sir (xbox360 orientated - 3rd party controller with 3 months xbox live sub from homebargains seemed a rather popular one) where do you think my rep come from? :-D Like you've pointed out in some of your posts this site has become full of complete goons over the past year that will vote cold on anything just for the fun of it :x Add to that the ebay traders that ruin it for genuine forum users and my desire to post anything deal related went out the window a while ago now :-D
