DVD special: Battlestar Galactica and Earth 2
I recently wrote
about the release of Earth 2
on DVD. Today, via TV Squad
, I learned about a special deal at Best Buy: Save $15 when you order the Best Buy exclusive Battlestar Galatica (U.K. version) along with any of these newly released sci-fi box sets: Cleopatra 2525, Earth 2, Sliders (Season 3)
Since Season One of Battlestar Galactica
is set to be released in September, what is Best Buy offering?
Battlestar Galactica Season One is the season aired on SkyOne in the UK featuring a different opening than the United States. Previously only available on DVD in the UK, this four disc set includes all 13 episodes plus deleted scenes. These DVDs have been formatted to be compatible with most North American DVD players.
As long as it's Region 1 encoding, which it appears to be, then heck yeah I'll get it two months early, especially if I can get Earth 2
at the same time AND with a discount.
I hate to admit it, but Season Two has started already and I didn't keep up with Season One so I can't yet start watching the new episodes. Fridays at 10pm is just not a good time for me—I'm usually asleep by then, because I am lame. No matter how much I loved the episodes I did see (and that would be "a great deal") I just couldn't manage to be up at that time.
With the Best Buy deal, that's two birds with one stone! Also noted: Xena: 10th Anniversary Collection
. From what I can tell, it's seventeen episodes selected by the fans as representative of the series. They seem to be good episodes, but what got me was the "10th anniversary" part. As in "the show began ten years ago." Would someone please tell me where the last ten years went? Wow.technorati tags: battlestar galactica, xena, dvd
