    You'll miss out....

    From The Digital Bits....

    we finally have official word from Universal on the DVD release of
    Battlestar Galactica: Season One. As many of you know, the 4-disc U.K.
    DVD release of the complete first season (all 13 episodes) has been
    reformatted for NTSC and will be available exclusively at Best Buy
    stores next Tuesday (7/26 - SRP $49.99). Video is anamorphic
    widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio, and extras on the U.K./Best
    Buy release include 50 minutes of deleted scenes.

    BUT... if you can wait a couple of months... the OFFICIAL U.S. release
    of Battlestar Galactica: Season One will be widely available from
    Universal on 9/20 (SRP $59.98) and the 5-disc set promises to be well
    worth the wait. Not only will you get all 13 hour-long episodes in
    anamorphic widescreen video with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio, and the 50
    minutes of deleted scenes, you'll get a lot more as well. Disc One
    will include the complete 4-hour TV miniseries with the previously
    released audio commentary with director Michael Rymer and executive
    producers David Eick and Ron Moore. Discs 2-5 will feature many
    additional episodes with optional audio commentary (by various
    combinations of Rymer, Eick and Moore) including the Pilot, Bastille
    Day, Act of Contrition, You Can't Go Home Again, Tigh Me Up, Tigh Me
    Down, The Hand of God, Colonial Day, Kobol's Last Gleaming: Part 1 and
    Kobol's Last Gleaming: Part 2 (we believe these include all of the
    podcast commentaries that have been available on Disc 5
    will also include a behind-the-scenes featurette, the aforementioned
    deleted scenes, a gallery of production sketches and artwork, a
    Battlestar Galactica Series Lowdown featurette and 1 of 3 collectible
    trading cards. The cover artwork will be different that the U.K./Best
    Buy art (which we've shown previously here) - you'll find the new art
    below. So now at least we know why there's been a delay. The U.S.
    release will feature MUCH more bonus material than the U.K./Best Buy

  2. There was really an episode called "Tigh Me Up. Tigh Me Down"??

    Is this the old BG or the new one?

    We only had a small thumbnail to show you when Battlestar Galactica
    was announced yesterday, but now we have the full-sized art! Take a
    look below:

    I hope the sex scenes were as good as the ones in the movie :)

    Heh. Olmos isn't very photogenic, I guess. ;)

    So the question is are the UK episodes extended or are they the same
    cut as the US release? Since the UK allows for -ahem- "nipply bits"
    while the US version would be burned at a stake for even hinting and
    something pink or convex it would be nice to know how long each episode
    runs in both versions.

    Since you can see male nipply bits in razor commercials on US
    television that's not the issue. :^) Damn prudes... serves us right for
    having a country founded by religious extremists.

    Same as the US release, except for slight changes in the theme music.
    Don't get your hopes up. The naked Boomers aren't any more naked in the
    UK airings.
