Just an FYI, Amazon.ca has the set up for preorder as an import for $112CAN with 30% off. Amazon.com doesn't list it yet.
I remember watching about half of the episodes as a kid. I was sort of interested, but that $120 MSRP has put me off.
Damn, those $60 MSRP Buffy and Angel sets have really spoiled me...
Funny how in this thread, $120 is too much for BG. But in the Freaks & Geeks thread, a significant number of people say it's just fine.
I guess it's all in what you like!
I'm predicting a $79.99 first week price
How about an $83.99 pre-order right now from DVDPlanet?
If you prefer, you can do it from Amazon.CA for what works out to be $84 even based on today's exchange rate. Amazon US is $89.99, and DVDEmpire is a whopping $95.98 (which is 4 cents higher than Laser's Edge, BTW). No, it's not listed at DDD yet.
Point in favor of Jeff's price: Taken and BG come out the same day (really bad move there, Universal...genre fans who might have gotten both on street date will pass on one or the other if money is an issue; they may get the other one later but your street-week revenue figures will suffer).
Taken's list price is also $119.99; Costco already has it up for pre-order at their website for $79.99. I have no doubt that BG would get sold at Costco, and at the same price point.
And, it's not unusual that either Best Buy, Circuit City, Target, or Wal-Mart beat a Costco price on first week. So one of those four chains might have it for even less!
I'll wait to see what the Canadian's etailers serve this up for. I've been buying my B5 boxes from DVD Soon...
interesting story about Edward James Olmos, playing Adm. Adama, warning fans NOT to watch the new series on SCI FI, if they are true fans of the original...
I guess the creators of the new show don't give Adama bout the fan following...
This news is about 2 weeks old, and it's in the "prepare to weep openly" thread in TV.
It's just that newswires are now picking up on it
I had no idea that EJO was playing Adama, guess I am a fan of the old show and don't give a dam a bout the new one
Wow so many BSG fans! Am I the only one who snatched up the new comic books done about 5 years ago? If you could only see them, they are very nicely drawn and written, will bring you right back.
I only wished I still had my BSC toys. I think they are more rare than starwars, and some were actually a lot cooler too.
from the Bits Rumor mill
Word from attendees at Comic-Con is that actor Richard Hatch let slip some details on the new Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Epic Series DVD. Apparently, Hatch and other actors contributed to the audio commentary track on some of the episodes. In addition, Hatch says Universal "obtained approximately 20 minutes of previously unreleased scenes from the 3-hour television version of the first episode" that is going to be added back into program for the DVD release.
Guess where that info came from?
I'm trying to get ahold of Richard to get confirmation
I should have known that this came from you Jeff
