I bought season 1 on HD-DVD, and the transfer quality was awful, so hopefully they'll do better for Blu-Ray. They even had sound-sync issues and stuff not even directly related to image or audio quality.

I did some checking online to make sure it wasn't an issue with my setup, and found out that it was a known flaw in those transfers.

I'd like to get it, however I only have to pickup Caprica and Season 4.5 to have it all on DVD.
So I may wait a bit to get this on BluRay.

I'm so glad I decided to hold off on getting any of the BSG dvd's because this bluray set will now be completely worth getting. smile

I can understand that. I was about to say that you could have watched the episodes on scifi.com but those are blocked if you are outside of the US. Doh!

Excellent I missed the last season and a half and only have the first season and premiere movie on dvd. It might be awhile for that price tho.
I found a wheel that will work for the pc/xbox/ps3 and it's around $350. I think I might get that first.

I got this directly from Amazon.com,

The 25 DVD set includes all the seasons, the miniseries (which is included in Season One), the webisode "The Resistance" (which is included in Season Three), Razor (which is included in Season 4.0) the webisode "The Face of the Enemy" (which is included in Season 4.5) and Caprica. "The Plan" which is set to be aired in November of 2009 does not appear to be included.


I should elaborate on this further and say that for Caprica its the pilot only since season 1 is currently under production now and wont be broadcast until next year.

Now that you bring that up I may decide to wait as well. Amazon is (in)famous for putting new releases on sale just a few weeks after initial release. I know because I've been burned several times already by that. Grr...

I just ordered the entire BSG series boxed set on bluray for $209 from Amazon. IMHO, that is a great price and its slated for release on the 28th. I have a feeling that price will go up after its released so if you are interested get it now.
