It's finally been announced:

Battlestar Galactica DVD news: Announcement for Battlestar Galactica - Season 3 | TVShowsOnDVD.com

Now, if Universal had only released the second season as one single boxed set. At least we're getting Season 3 in its own single boxed set and not separated.

Since we know this upcoming fourth season of Battlestar Galactica is the last, I think I'll exercise some prudent restraint and wait for the complete series box set (in Blu-Ray), which will no doubt be out before next Christmas.

I'm assuming they (Universal) will see the error of their ways by then; or at least Microsoft will stop bribing them and Paramount to release HD-DVD only.

What took so long?!?!?! I have been catching this series on DVD because I can't get the time to watch it when it is originally broadcast. I have too much respect for this series to bit-torrent it. It is just too high quality and too well written.

Like most current series, they waited to release it until near the time the next season starts running.

Yeah, but the release date might even be pushed back further since the Writer's Strike is still ongoing.

The podcasts are included after all! I thought with the strike and all we'd never see these.

I wouldn't get too excited. It doesn't say for certain if the 25 minutes is the Unfinished Business. It just says that there are 25 minutes of deleted scenes.

Nothing more than a guess but if they haven't changed the S4 premiere date yet and they've announced the S3 DVD to coincide with that premiere, it's extremely unlikely that they're going to change it. They'll just play whatever episodes they have finished and then when the strike ends, they'll make and air the rest.

It's a longer cut, alright. This is from an interview with Ron Moore:

Quote:
11) Do you have anything special planned for the upcoming DVD and high-def releases of BSG?
They have been putting together the box set for season three. There is a very long extended episode of “Unfinished Business” – 70 minutes long. The editor and I did a commentary track for it. That was the biggest editing challenge of the third season

The press release says that particular episode includes 25 minutes of extra footage, unless it's extremely poorly written. Don't forget season 2.5's version of Pegasus was 15 minutes longer than broadcast. From what the producers were saying on the podcast, they had to cut out a lot of stuff from the episode, such as the reason Starbuck and Tigh were getting along after the "bold leap forward."
I'm not really a huge fan of the episode, but maybe the added scenes will improve it, and I'm definitely interested to see the other flashbacks to the lost year.

Oh how I wish for such a thing to happen.....there's so much in each of their catalogues that I'd love to have on BD. Posted Image

As for Battlestar Galactica: Season 3, it's about damn time that they are releasing this. I've been waiting a long time to pick this up. Now I just have to wait about 3 long, cold winter months before I get my hands on it.

I don't think season 4 will even be over by next Christmas.

Remember, the last half of Season 4 might not air until mid 2009.

In my opinion, Universal is always disrespecting fans by prolonging the DVD set releases as well as prolonging the Battlestar Galactica series. This is why I've given up on watching television.

If I want to watch a television series, I just buy the DVD sets.

The problem is that by the time the fourth starts to air, Universal and Sci Fi are taking a huge risk that they've lost fans who have been waiting for the last season that there's going to be a drop in their ratings. Waiting an entire year and a half to broadcast the final season? Universal definately has the wrong people advising them as to their broadcast schedule for the series.

No word on the "Resistance" webisodes in this release?

Those are as every bit as essential as the regular episodes themselves, and there was that article from earlier this spring which indicated that they'd be included, edited together with extended content to form "Episode Zero" on the DVD playlist.

Though, the WGA strike might've fucked this up.

Not really. It's a DVD release. They still get their residuals.

Though apparently Ron Moore was reluctant to even turn the "Resistance" video masters over to Universal, awaiting word from the WGA on a couple of key points -- there was still some friction over these earlier this year. It might've gotten smoothed over before the strike began, but the DVD press release doesn't really give any hints on their inclusion one way or the other.
