Finishing some business with Battlestar Galactica
Before Season 4 airs, you should have a few days to catch up on BSG’s Season 3.
The release date is March 25 for the entire season (Season 2 was sold initially in two parts, Season 2 and Season 2.5, as the season itself was aired in two parts).
According to TVShowsOnDVD it’ll be a six-DVD package and there will be 25 minutes of never-before-seen fotage for the “Unfinished Business” episode alone. There will be 15 hours of bonus material.
The cost? $59.98.
Look, I know in the greater scheme of things that there are better ways to spend $60. But I’m a pretty frugal girl and don’t spend money willy-nilly. I can’t think of a better way to spend the cash.
“Unfinished Business,” you see, is that infamous episode where we learn that Apollo and Starbuck finally admitted their feelings for one another, had a night of passion and the next morning she got hitched to Anders before Apollo woke up. You know, the episode where Apollo and Starbuck beat the poo-poo out of one another in the boxing ring. Where, in another flashback, we learn that Roslin and the Admiral finally accepted the fact that their feelings toward one another was more than simple friendship.
And how, my friends, does one put a price on another 25 minutes of exploring those storylines?
Anyway, some have made hay about how this set is coming out after Season 4 begins. But I don’t think that’s the case. I can’t recall where I read it, and I know I blogged on it at some point, the season actually begins in April. One episode airs in March, and that’s a recap episode, for folks who’ve not watched BSG before.
So never fear. If you want to watch all of Season 3 before Season 4 rolls around, you should get your chance.
