Battlestar Galactica Newb.

Hi all,

I've got a bit of free time on my hands, and have been watching BSG. Got sucked in a yr or so ago with zip.ca, and watched the 1st season on that.... A few weeks ago, I was in Costco and saw BSG:Season 2 for $19.39, so I picked it up on a whim, figured quite a bit of legal entertainment for under $20.

Flew through Season 2, and almost done season 3 (also $19.39 at Costco). Found some spoilers online (Damn), when looking for the remaining seasons.

I need to get my hands on the remaining seasons. I found some pretty good deals on Amazon.ca. Looks to be under $22/season for BD.

Question. without giving away anymore spoilers. Can someone look up. What box sets I need to finish off the series?

I have Seasons 2 and 3.

There appears to be a Season 4.0, and 4.5, I take I need to buy both, is there any overlap?

THx,
Peter

I can appreciate the confusion as some seasons were divided in half with long mid-season breaks (season 4 was about 6 months between the halves).

4.0 is the first half of the 4th season and 4.5 is the second half, so you will need both.

Season 2 was released as 2.0 and 2.5 as well, so I do not know if you have all the episodes of both sets.

Seasons 1 and 3 were released as whole seasons.

The miniseries that began things was included in the season 1 set.

There are also a couple of one off movies: Razor is included in the 4.0 set and can be safely watched between the 3rd and 4th seasons. The Plan (a movie that you should only watch once you are done all 4 seasons as it has a lot of spoilers), was not included in the individual season sets.

The episode counts are:

Miniseries - 2
Season 1 - 13
Season 2 - 20
Season 3 - 20
Razor (film) - 1
Season 4 - 20
The Plan (film) - 1

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Yes, the series ended after 4 seasons. The Plan came out after the series, and it is worth seeing when you get to that point. I would say more but I do not want to spoil it.

Glad to be of help.

Cheers

There was also one season of Caprica which was a prequel to BSG. It came out as a DVD.

Cheers,

I see Netflix USA has all 4 seasons. Does anyone know if The Plan is included there as well?

Don't read too much wiki there. Spoilers everywhere!

And you should download/buy the webisodes.
