    This will be mine as soon as the stores open (not chancing ordering online, even if there is a slim chance it comes early), coupled with a "sick day."

    $40MSRP for 90mins. Ow. I wish they'd stop pricing these discs so high.

    Does anyone know if it will be spoilers for anyone who is halfway through the series? Thinking of having people over to watch but some have not seen all the eps.

    Based on the presence of one cast member, it probably spoils through at least three-quarters of the way through season four.

    Hmm, not sure how to put this. I kind of figured it out on my own and it spoiled me a bit as I was watching the series for the first time last month. So if you're watching the series for the first time and haven't finished the 3rd season, do NOT click on the spoiler below.


    The cover of this disc is a spoiler in itself.

    Or at least you think you have.

    The returning cast of the movie is not all Cylons.

    Yeah, I wouldn't show this to people who haven't seen the whole show. As far as I can tell it's a retroactive continuity thing intended to patch up various plot holes created during the latter seasons (when they finally decided on what the Cylons' motivations actually were) so you're going to need to have most of the show under your belt to understand what's going on.

    *Sigh* Yeah, Universal, you basically have me over a barrel when it comes to BSG. I didn't bite on the big series set (yet), but chances are The Plan will be mine in 2 weeks.

    Ummm...

    No they are not, but I was referring to the 6 faces on the cover being Cylons, which they are, unless I totally misunderstood the complete series!!
