    Default Re: iTunes offers BSG

    Unfortunately I don't know exactly what causes it to use the Australian iTunes instead of the US version. I didn't know there were so many international fans here, my apologies.

    Some people say it's your IP address, some say credit card. I can only offer this suggestion: When you log into the iTunes store, scroll to the bottom of the page and change the location to US. I have no idea if this will change the content.

    One last comment, this content would never replace the DVD for me. I find it the most useful for catching episodes I miss. When the season is done, I'll buy the entire Season 2 dvd set.

    The pegasus episode is indeed extended. I think it clocked in just over an hour.

    Wink Space Channel (Canada) on BSG Season 2

    From Channel Canada:

    BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Continues to Chart on Course

    The series Newsday called “The Best Show on Television” and Time magazine voted as one of the top six dramas on the small screen, Battlestar Galactica, returns to SPACE for a much-anticipated second season. The ultimate battle between man and machine resumes January 14 at 8pm ET.

    Executive produced and developed by Ronald D. Moore (Carnivale, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) and David Eick (American Gothic), Battlestar Galactica is a gripping saga of humanity’s last remnants and their struggle to find a new home while fleeing from their deadly Cylon enemies. This stunning re-imagination of the 1978 cult classic hit series has redefined the space opera with its gritty realism. It has distinguished itself by the intensity and present day relevance of its stories and performances of its ensemble cast. The series confronts everything from religion, politics and sex to what it really means to be human.

    Season one concluded with Commander Adama (Edward James Olmos) shot at close range by Lieutenant Sharon Valerii (Canadian actress Grace Park), who, unbeknownst to her and the Galactica crew, is a humanoid Cylon. Will Adama survive? Are there more Cylons among them?
    Shot in Vancouver, B.C., the series also stars Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck), Jamie Bamber (Apollo), James Callis (Dr. Baltar), and Canadian actors Tricia Helfer (Number Six), Michael Hogan (Tigh) and Tahmoh Penikett (Helo). Season two features special guest appearances by Richard Hatch (Battlestar Galactica: The Classic Series) and Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess). Production of a third season of the series was recently announced.

    SPACE will also present a special half-hour inside look at the new season in Battlestar Galactica (Season Two): Behind the Scenes on Saturday, January 14 at 7:30pm ET. The SPACE production team gets exclusive interviews and a behind the scenes tour on the set of the hit show.

    That works, but you still need a U.S. credit card to purchase content.

    I just took a look at the preview clips you can view, and the quality is good, it's just that the resolution is low, and they've cropped the files to fullscreen rather than widescreen format, so you're going to lose some of the image.

    Who is actually planning on getting this? Personally I just dont see the point because you know that they will put out a entire season 2 set eventually with extras. I might rent it so I can refresh my memory before the season resumes, but not buy.

    I only caved when a mysteriously generous $25 gift certificate arrived in the mail from Telus (mobile company) which made it cheaper to buy than the iTunes full season. I would've held onto the coupon, but it expired in January... So otherwise, I hear ya, it's a cash grab on Universal's part.

    On the Space website, they have video clips from the set. However the one with Tahmoh going behind the scenes of second season does not work. It once did, cause I got to see it during the summer. The others do work and are somewhat interesting. The Tahmoh one was a good one, it was trés funny. He visited with Grace on site, it appears to be shot sometime during(or after) the epi Home pt.1.

    Wink Re: Space Channel (Canada) on BSG Season 2

    To clear up any confusion, those are the Canadian broadcast dates that is starting from episode 201, not the U.S. resumption dates for the 2nd half of BSG which is still Jan 6, 2006.

    Default Re: Season 2.0 DVD availability

    OK, guys, got some possible bad news. Last night, I was re-watchign Pegasus, and I noticed the episode ended at 45.xx. I remember seeing something past an hour on my sisters DVD player my first play through. I go back to her player, and for some reason the numbers were jumping around.

    somehow, the episode is NOT longer. It had been so long since I had seen it I only THOUGHT some scenes were new, and since the timer was fooling me, I didn't really think twice. Now unless its somehow hidden on the disc, we may have another "Threads" type issue going on here.

    The extra scenes are also not included in the deleted scenes area. The back on the box (that hold the last disc with two episodes) only states the time as one hour 20 some minutes, making both episode their original lenghts. And this in fact a legitimate set, not some asian copy or bootleg.

    On a side note though, it's nice that the set inccludes more than an episodes worth of deleted scenes.

    You're positive about this?

    I'll cancel my purchase if I have to shell out for another copy with the long edit on it.

    Default Re: Season 2.0 DVD availability

    I checked the DVD on my computer with two different DVD extraction programs, and there is nothing on the disc that would make me believe an extended episode is hidden in there somewhere. The content is abnormaly large for just 2 episodes (close to 6 Gigs), but that could just be how little they compressed the data (the image quality for these two episodes is amazing, especially when hooked up to an HD Up-Converter).

    IMO, hold off on the pre-order. Wait and see when the set is officlaly released if anyone else reports this problem (which they probably will).
