    Not everyone watches the show when it airs, and if you're one of those people or if you'd just like to know what's on the discs, then this review is for you.

    First, let me just say that I absolutely loved the finale. I also believe that the final half of season four was perhaps the strongest of the series (definitely the bleakest). This show had always been a drama with a scifi setting, and while some folks didn't like the fact that it became much more dialogue driven and less focused on action, I loved it. There are ten episodes (finale being a three-parter, but aired as two episodes, so you could say 11 episodes) spread across 3 discs. Here's a breakdown of the EXTRAS on each disc with my opinion of what's useful and what could have been airlocked.

    Disc One:
    "The Journey Ends: The Arrival" is a look back at the series with the cast and crew. Worth watching.
    "What the Frak is Going On With Battlestar Galactica" is a quick 8-minute summary of the show through the first 3 seasons. It's concise and hilarious.
    "A Disquiet Follows My Soul Unaired Extended Episode." Better than the broadcast version, and definitely the version I'd recommend.
    "Evolution of a Cue" is a behind-the-scenes look at composer Bear McCreary's creation of music for a specific scene (with Roslin). It's incredibly detailed and if you're a fan of the music on BSG, I couldn't recommend this one enough. Actually, even if you're not a fan of the music it's still very interesting.

    Disc Two:
    "David Eick's Video Blogs" is a collection of 11 3-5 minute video diaries with the cast and crew covering a range of topics. Some are funny and some are just fun to watch. Definitely worth watching.

    I love the series so far but why was a season 4.5 released if season 4 contains what would be classified as Season 4, 4.5 PLUS Razor? I should have read the newest reviews because it seems like I'm not the only one who made a double purchase of season 4 and 4.5 at the same time only to find out when I opened season 4 that it included 4.5.

    One of my favorite television series of all time along with 'The Wire'
    and 'Breaking Bad'.

    Like 'The Wire' this is a complex, Dickensian study of human nature,
    not afraid of asking big questions, and meticulously plotted like a
    great novel, so that each episode is a chapter in a much larger whole.

    Just as 'The Wire' used the overly familiar cliché' world of the cop
    show to jump off from and shatter our preconceptions, and 'Battlestar
    Galactica' uses the sci-fi series, and the idea of human versus robot
    wars the same way.

    This is thinking person's sci fi, in the tradition of Arthur C. Clarke,
    or Isaac Asimov. It's about why we are how we are, what it means to be
    a human being, morality under constant pressure in times of war,
    fathers and sons, impossible loves, metaphors for modern and recent
    politics and real world situations.

    My wife, far from a sci-fi fan was hooked after 3 episodes, and we tore
    through 5 years of shows in just a few days. It's that addicting.

    The acting is all at least quite good, and some cast members are
    remarkable, creating characters full of depth, complexity and
    contradiction. The writing is terrific, allowing the characters to
    change and grow, but always in ways that make sense, creating seemingly
    inexplicable conundrums, only to find surprising, sometimes shocking -
    but ultimately logical and satisfying - ways to explain where they've
    taken us. The special effects are generally very impressive for TV,
    even if they're not really why you watch this show.

    It also has some of the most tense episodes of television I've ever
    seen, and some of the season enders left me completely wrung out and
    blown away.

    I finally decide to buy this amazing series, and set down to figure out which ones I needed to buy to get the complete set. There was a LOT of talk about season 2 vs season 2.0/5, but absolutely nothing about season 4. Now since no one mentioned what episodes were in the season 4 package, and there wasn't a season 4.0 package, I rationally assumed that 4=4.0. Incorrect. 4.5 was created for some nonsense reason, since season 4 has ALL of the episodes on it, making 4.5 a complete waste of money. Don't buy this!

    Terribly clever idea: tell the ending of the series in the extras on the FIRST disk. Blue ray quality is fine, looks good and plays full screen, which is a plus.

    Annoying things are the EXTREME spoiler in the extras for disk 1, and the same director clip that you have to skip before each episode.

    BLU-RAY vs HDTV vs DVD vs TV

    It's true. I've seen it with my own balls. The picture quality of the blu-ray is the best way to experience the show. The blacks are deeper, richer, the colors more vibriant, everything is sharper. I watch on a 50" panasonic plasma G10. The emotion on the actors faces, is more rich, more immediate, more human. On TV and HDTV the image is compressed, on DVD the image is soft. On blu-ray the image is as good as possible. It's not perfect. There's a lot of film grain in some shots. But most of the time the blu-ray advantage is absolutely worth it. It's not AAA, like Sin City or The Dark Knight, but it's a quality HD transfer.

    THE STORYTELLING

    Without spoilers, here's what I wished I would have known about this series before I started watching it. It has a master story arc, the plan, the heroes journey, etc... But I would guess that only about 25% of the episodes advance the story in a significant way. 75% of the episodes are almost stand-alone character dramas, set inside the world. If you expect every episode to advance the master plot, a lot of the episodes can feel too slow. If you know going in, expecting lots of side stories in an interesting hard-sciencce-fiction universe, then its easier to appreciate the character stories more, instead of just waiting for the next major revelation.

    What is the difference between this set(4.5) and the complete season 4?
    i'm pretty sure they included all the same special features from 4.5 on the full season 4 release. be glad you bought 4 and not 4.5 first since those people (like myself) got completely screwed over.

    Season 4.5 DVD
    The Season 4.5 Blu-Ray became redundant when Universal later released the Complete Season 4 set, whereas the DVD versions of Season 4.0 and 4.5 are still separate sets.

    I just purchased Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series [Blu-ray]...
    You are missing Caprica, which is a prequel to the series just as The Plan is. Also, there is a miniseries called Razor which is before the Cylons take over Caprica...I think it shows how all the characters wind up together.
