|firefox91||I ordered back on Dec 4th and it just arrived today. Merry Christmas to me! Now I am in a quandary between wanting to watch this, finish up Star Trek Voyager via Netflix, play Borderlands 2 and Black Ops 2, and that miserable job of mine. Meh, the job can wait!|

I received a similar note saying to expect it on 12/17, but I still have not received it. I was wondering if you received it on the date they said or was it delayed also? Just wondering if I should contact them yet or just wait a little longer.

Great, I ordered this like 5 days ago and today they put up a 25% off coupon, BIGBOX25. Is it possible to get them to issue you a partial refund for the price difference?
Edit~I chatted with a customer service representative and they gave me a 25% refund

I also just received a shipping confirmation on the second set. Both orders show up on the orders page with the second showing zero charge. The original order is 'In Transit'. I'm assuming that since they state 'replacement' I'll be getting one copy. But they also state zero charge for the second set, so maybe I'll get both..

Also, if you don't have an actual 5.1 surround system (sound is half the cinematic experience) you really should watch it on Netflix.
That being said, for all the "I'll watch it on Netflix" people:
Netflix bitrate (1.5Mb) vs Blu-ray bitrate (27MB) is crazy different. I guess Netflix HD is good enough for the people who also don't really care if they see it in SD but BSG is a cinematic experience, unlike re-watching Friends in SD because you're just waiting for the punchlines.
I'm just trying to say Netflix HD bitrate is so poor, it's really just "clear-er" SD, but the lack of minimally a 5.1 surround system would make the BD rather pointless.

Again -- everything on this set is 100% compatible with US players and TV as long as your equipment is functioning and the Discs aren't bad.

I'm glad you liked it, but I think you are in the minority of viewers. They set the bar high, and totally Fark'd it up. They could have and should have done a better job. I
guess we have diff views, no worries.

This is one of those series' which, when you view it the second time (and succeeding times), different things will pop up at you, and you'll think--damn, I didn't pick up on that before! LOL I think LOST falls into this category, too.
I'm rewatching Fringe on the Science Channel, and it makes SO much more sense now, having seen the whole series (thus far), already.
and...the price just jumped up to GBP44.99

Will the extras and special features play on US players? Dealnews has this warning on their site:
"Of note, although the episodes themselves will play on US Blu-ray players, the extras and special features may not."
