I was just wondering were you guys go the season 1 episode titles.

Also, where on DVD can you buy the miniseries? Region 2 has it (illegally), but not Region 1. Even Amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00005JMNS/qid=1095428881/sr=1-4/ref=sr_1_4/104-8338356-7667900?v=glance&s=dvd) isn't selling the DVD.

Just wondering about those two things.

Why did you tack on that 'illegally'? I've seen it here in Iceland in one of the major DVD retail stores. I know that they never carry any unauthorized versions of DVDs. It is also for sale on Play.com and they too have never offered anything except legit DVDs. So where the heck is that 'illegal' bit coming from?

How about since SciFi hasn't released it on DVD. They have released all the other miniseries, TAKEN, Children of DUNE, and Firestarter: Rekindled, but not BSG (N).

I've seen it for sale on the internet, for region 2 areas, australia and such, and if the US doesn't have it, its illegal. I'm only saying that, cause SciFi is US based, and they haven't released it here, why would they release it over there, and not worldwide?

I'm trying to decide if your joking (tounge in cheek) or if you are actually serious... Alright I'll assume the later.

First: There is no way in HELL that the R2 release is anything other then legit.
Second: The reason why it's been released in R2 and not R1 is most likely due to rights issue in the USA. There is NOTHING stopping the owners of BSG (be it SciFi or some production company) from approving DVD releases in R2 long before they are released in R1. For example Stargate is released on DVD in R2 well before it is released in R1.

Oooh, the temptation to say something sarky! :p

No, seriously though, it's legit. In Iceland, the UK, anywhere R2. It's pretty common for US shows to go: US TV, UK TV, R2 DVD, Syndication, US DVD.

How does that circle even work?

Should go US TV-->US DVD (Region 1)-->yada yada yada

The "Circle" is whatever happens to work for that particular piece of work. There is no set framework. Because the 'repeat' market outside america is generally much smaller and less significant, it is usually possible to release TV shows on DVD as soon as they've been aired once. In the US that is rarely the case.

As for the BSG mini series TVShowsOnDvd.com has a news report today stating that it will be out on Dec. 28th. in R1 http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/newsitem.cfm?NewsID=2233

As far as I know, SCI FI doesn't own BSG. Universal owns it, and can release DVDs when and where they please.

Episode titles in GateWorld's episode guide are collected from a variety of sources. The fan site http://www.galactica2003.net/ is a great one for the new series. Their episode guide is hard to find, though:

There is some confusion as to at least one title, as between the two sites we've somehow gotten 14 episode titles for a 13-episode series!

Dear oh dear Oh! Dear!

Arogant much ?

i`ve got a lovery OFFICAL r2 copy of the mini series and by your [cough] arguement does that mean that since us in the UK are getting the series 3 months earlier than u yanks (starts showing 18/10 incidently on sky1) does that mean its been shown illegally?


The world does NOT revolve around the yanks as much as you`d like to believe

1. Thanks Darren for the response appreciated.

2. Water and 33 are the same episode. I read the spoilers and rumors for water, aka 1.01, and its the same thing.

I don't know how to say this....ITS A FREAKING GALACTICA CIVIL WAR! The humans are being hunted into extintion. Of course its going to be despressing! It has to be, inorder to capture the mood and feelings of being hunted by a massive enemy that doesn't die, that doesn't quit, that doesn't feel emotion.

I'm really confused about this mini series thing.

Sky One showed the opening 'movie' on Saturday night. It was, I think, just over two and a half hours long. This movie had been shown as two seperate episodes on two nights last week, and it had also been on Sky Movies last year.

Then last night (18th Oct) we had what I thought was the first episode of the mini series.

But then someone has posted that the second mini series starts on the 25th of October - next Monday.

So was the 'movie' and last night's episode the first mini series then? And the second is starting next week? Or is this all just one mini series and we're getting them confused?

I wasnt complaining about the bleakness of it - thats one of the series strong points. They really did look like they`d not had any sleep in over 200 times 33 mins(cant be assed to work it out)

Its much preferable to the campy original - plus lots more robot cylons!!!!!

The "movie" is the movie. Originally it was just a reimagining of the original series that Moore and the others wanted to do. It would start at the original start of the original BSG and end at the original ending of BSG.

But then as time went on, and they got picked up for the awesome looking series, it became the 3 hour pilot. So technically it is a stand alone movie. But on the other hand it is the pilot to the new series aswell.

OH YEA RIGHT! Those clanky things were like walking toasters with a red flashlight that spun around in a wack take on a stormtrooper helmet. Then again, I'm alot younger, and wasn't around for the BSG TOS, so I really don't like the TOS BSG.
