Like the instructions state in the OP, go to final checkout to see lower price.

Wow, awesome price, thanks OP, repped.

icedone927 12-04-2012 07:54 AM

This is an amazing deal, historically lowest price by far. Purchased and rep'd....this deserves to go FP.

FrugalBrutal 12-04-2012 08:00 AM

Just started Season 3. Believe the hype. This show is as good as everyone says it is. I can stream it on Amazon Prime but this price is the best I've ever seen. I don't know that I've seen it below $99.

cm2 12-04-2012 08:04 AM

Such a great show. thanks for posting!

Do purchases from UK Amazon incur foreign exchange fees on ones credit card?

-Shadow 12-04-2012 08:14 AM

Great show at a great price. One of my favorites.

icedone927 12-04-2012 08:17 AM

They do if your CC has a FTF. You can also elect to have Amazon convert for you and charge you in US dollars which costs a couple of bucks. I use a Capitol One card with no foreign transaction fee.

Ah so youve met Tigh Zarqawi I see. Be sure to google the webisodes in between seasons 2 and 3. It explains more about why Duck chose to go jihad on the cyclons.

On Netflix, it is in HD... I am halfway thru the entire series, and have been watching it in HD, with 5.1 audio too. At first is starts in SD, and about 30 seconds later you will see it switch over to HD/5.1 audio. Working on both my xbox 360 and my WD TV player netflix apps.

True, I have done the same. Still I doubt Netflix is pushing out Blu-ray quality video and sound. I love the series and may have to jump on this.

It seems like he may know that it's in HD on Netflix, but is saying that Netflix for him, in particular, doesn't stream very well, so the quality is off.

No, you're right, it's available in HD. But for some reason, my connection always downgrades us and glitches. I have Comcast and generally get a good connection, so I'm OK with paying $60 to be HD and glitch-free whenever I want, on any TV I want (with BluRay, of course!) :)

I used to have problems with Netflix HD streaming but everything's been fine his past year. I've discovered im far too lazy to get up to place a blu ray in my ps3 so I'm purely streaming these days regardless of how cheap blu rays are getting. For non lazy folks though this is a good price for an excellent series, yes even S4.

slickminnesota 12-04-2012 09:09 AM

I agree with some that say they have problems with HD Netflix. I seem to get better quality with Amazon and Hulu, not sure why... just do.

masoninc61 12-04-2012 09:13 AM

Sorry, but "streaming hd" does not compare the quality you get from bluray. Heck even time warner HD looks like crap in motion sequences. It's because they have to compress it.

You could stick your Blu Rays on a NAS device and then access them using a HTPC or other such device. The quality of Blu Ray paired with the laziness-enabling availability of streaming... the best of both worlds! :D

jNamon 12-04-2012 09:27 AM

For those wondering if worth buying, nothing is ever guaranteed to stay on streaming services, and the commentary tracks, at least for the first season, are pretty amazing.

OOS but you can still add to cart. Debating to get it or not...

Does it really include everything? Like the web episodes? I know it doesn't include the plan based on this thread.

I do know that when I first start to watch something on Netflix the quality is pretty poor, but after a few seconds the quality does get better. Amazon and Hulu seem to give you the full HD quality right away.

Not sure if this will help, but I noticed that there is a setting to change the quality of your Netflix streaming.

I should have jumped earlier. Now order won't arrive until after Christmas.

TheOpusFuller 12-04-2012 10:42 AM

Was wondering if anybody can confirm if this can play on a USA PS3?

I tried looking up some info online but it was back and forth and kind of confusing to find a definite answer.

I've never tried a region free Bluray disc on an american version PS3. Would love to pick up this set for my fiance as it's her favorite show.

Thanks all and thanks OP for posting!

zmmnj 12-04-2012 10:46 AM

yes, should be able to play in PS3 with no problem. I have not found the same product in Amazon or online (in US) either... seems a unique product just made for EU maybe... :P

I have both a PS3 and this set, and can happily confirm that indeed, it does play fine on my PS3. It's worth every penny; I bought it for about $25USD more a year ago, and as far as I know, this is the cheapest this entire set has ever been made available.

Also, for what it's worth, the packaging is pretty compact for how many discs are available.

So Say We All!

TheOpusFuller 12-04-2012 11:02 AM

Great. Thanks for confirming everyone. Just placed the order. My fiance is going to have a good xmas this year. Got her the T3 DSLR camera, bag, extra lens and now this set. Technically I should be off the hook for the next 3 years of Christmas but I don't see it happening! :)

GhostDecon 12-04-2012 11:04 AM

This seems like a great deal for anyone who wants the full bluray set. I am very tempted to get this, but knowing that the full series is available on netflix I'm going to have to save my $60.

WilliamG 12-04-2012 11:08 AM

This is NOT the full Blu-ray. It's missing "The Plan" (which is awesome, by the way..).

On principle I'm not buying it for this reason. Calling it the "Complete Series" just makes me ANGRAH!

Just want to add, FFS stop comparing streaming HD off netflix, amazon, etc to blu-ray. Streaming HD off netflix, amazon, etc isn't even as high as the HD quality of your over the air local news let alone blu-ray quality HD. I've had netflix and amazon for years, have a 25/25 connection which is far faster that 99% of US residents so have personal experience with the lower quality HD and you can google stream rates for the various services if you want to verify that they don't even match up to local news channels. There is absolutely no comparison you're basically telling people "you can get the DVD's for cheaper" because any new dvd player is going to upconvert so it's the same as blu ray right?

It's because you have Comcast, not meaning to be offensive but you should look into the practices of companies you deal with before paying for their service. Comcast is hugely against internet freedom and feels it's their right as a company to throttle your speeds or completely block sites they don't want you using. Their contract regardless of what speeds are listed on the plan you purchased only guarantees 3/1 so you may have shelled out tons of extra money for their high end package but they're still only guaranteeing that you'll get at least the lowest speed that they offer. Sometimes you'll get the lower speed strictly because of network problems but it's generally because they're throttling it based on the amount of data you're using or the site you're accessing.

I don't know for certain but going off the answer I've seen in all the previous deals I'm going to say it does not include the webisodes because I think it's the exact same set that's been offered before which did not include the webisodes.

BigSchu22 12-04-2012 11:41 AM

Damn, if only I hadn't bought the DVD sets as they came out a couple of years ago!

farsighted99 12-04-2012 11:46 AM

I buy DVD's and Blu-Rays from Amazon.co.uk all the time. They are consistently way cheaper for anything. Most of the blu-rays are Region free which means you can play them on your US blu-ray player. They usually tell you if they aren't.

Lately when I order them, they ship a boatload of DVD's and CD's to Amazon US, and then Amazon US sends them out from there. At least that's what I've noticed recently,

Besides being cheaper, you can get a lot of the UK shows which I love faster; sometimes the DVD/Blu-Ray comes out before they even broadcast the show in the US.

When you go to pay, you can choose if you want to pay in US currency or UK. I prefer the UK, cause I use a BA Chase card and they have no currency conversion. However, the US currency choice they give you is only a dollar or two higher.

Bozo 12-04-2012 12:34 PM

LOL'Z at those who have not finished thw whole series. I too was thinking it was one of the best Sci-Fi shows ever, but then I fiinished the series. Upon finishing the series, I don't ever want to watch it again. I won't spoil the ending by telling what happens, but, it could not have been more lame. A complete waste of my time watching the series. JR waking up only to find the whole series was just a dream would have been better. :lol: Wish I could undo it, but its too late for me. SAVE YOURSELVES! :eek:

A complete waste of my time watching the series. JR waking up only to find the whole series was just a dream would have been better. :lol: Wish I could undo it, but its too late for me. SAVE YOURSELVES! :eek:
What a FRAK'N POS!!!! :mad:Ok, I'm done now.:rolleyes:

it was not that bad. It was no where near as bad as the ending to mass effect 3, which probably goes down as worst ending to anything ever in all history.

I guess I could see your ME3, and raise you a Howard The Duck movie. :P



But seriously, BSG's ending was HORRIBLE!

I dont want to write spoilers but I liked some of the finale episode, but the ultimate conclusion was super dumb. It's because they Twin Peaked their way thru 3 seasons then were like, omg now what? BSG still ties with Farscape as my favorite tv show ever and I will still continue to watch it obsessively when the mood strikes, especially season 1 and the first few eps of season 3.

I guess you might have seen this one coming, but I did not like the ending to Farscape either. That said, I would watch it if it was on tv though. It was not nearly as bad as BSG's ending. I think we have similar tastes in good Sci-Fi, I am more critical on the ending due to the perceived expectations of a good finished product from previous seasons. I think we would both agree they raised the bar high. So high they fell very short of our expectations. I.E., they could have done much better.

I wasn't comparing the two. In fact, I differentiated by saying this is a great deal for those want bluray quality. Obviously bluray is superior to streaming services in almost every single way; however, having seen the series once before I don't think there is much for me to gain by watching it again on bluray. Maybe if I had a great sound system I could benefit from the lossless audio tracks, but I probably wouldn't notice the difference since I only have a sound bar.

Yep -- don't buy this for $60 and buy The Plan for less than $9. It's much better to buy the entire set for $110 and basically get the 4 season sets and a separate case with The Plan.

firefox91 12-04-2012 04:25 PM

Good lord, I can't believe someone said "The Plan" was awesome. It was by far the worst written and fragmented story they ever told in the series. It was a terrible flashback on an awesome series.

Soooo... I was trying not to spend any more money. But damn, $60 for the whole series on Blu-Ray? This is one of the few series I can watch over and over again. Now I can do it full HD. Besides, I can probably sell my DVDs off for the price I paid for the Blu-Ray set. If not, well I will just give them to my brother who loves the series as well.

First ordering from Amazon.uk, it seemed wierd. "Dispatch" is the word, not "ship".
"Amazon.co.uk accepts all major credit and debit cards." .... except for Discover. :) No cash back for me.

madcow3417 12-04-2012 04:33 PM

Don't watch the last episode!
It's a great series... except for the end. In the second or third to last episode you find out what the music is at the end of the episode. That's it, the end. Don't watch the next episode. Read a spoiler if you want, but if you watch the last episode it will just ruin the rest of the series... just like Lost.

DiiShen 12-04-2012 04:38 PM

Thanks, I ordered a set, is there anything missing content wise other than The Plan? This is identical to the grey box series (http://www.amazon.com/Battlestar-...+galactica) other than packaging, correct?

decarillion 12-04-2012 04:44 PM

I thought The Plan was a good idea on paper. In practice----no.

I know a lot of people had expectations of them finding modern Earth and merging with the existing population. But what they did find really tied everything together in so many ways. The theme of "this has all happened before, it will happen again" was explained. And the ending tied the entire series in to the modern world. Personally I loved the end of the series. LOVED IT.

nanikore 12-04-2012 05:02 PM

I loved the last episode. I loved it even more when I see all these people squirming after watching it.

Identical content in every way to the US Complete Series. The only thing missing is The Plan. Miniseries, Commentaries, Extended Versions, 2 version of Razor , Deleted Scenes, etc

I have not watched this series, but am interested. I have Netflix, which has series 1,2,3,4.. I can't figure out what's better about $60 (for someone with Netflix), for those who have watched it, would it be worth it to shell out the extra cash for the extra stuff this package has? I've had great luck with amazon UK before. Thanks!

kemetblk 12-04-2012 07:46 PM

broke down and bought it (thanks OP!) because $60 seems to be a great price. I just started season 2 on Netflix, so I can now wait and watch it in better quality.

I don't know how it will end, but seeing as how I had absolutely NO PROBLEM with Mass Effect 3's ending I don't think I'll be all that upset if this ends similarly.

Steve0 12-04-2012 07:54 PM

In for a set. Loved this show, have the digital downloads in blu-ray quality on my media server, but without commentary tracks. Might be fun to have this and for <$58 it is a bargain.

that is up to you. if you have Netflix and a Blu Ray player you have probably already noticed the big difference in audio and video quality between the two. if you are watching on a small TV or PC monitor it might not be worth it. if you have a nice big screen TV and surround sound setup you may want the extra eye/ear candy...

i have Amazon Prime and started watching season 1 about a month ago. i have been watching on my 27" 2560x1440 PC monitor. Amazon's HD stream looks great, but i also have a 1080p projector, 106" screen, and 5.1 surround setup. i'm very tempted to get this set...

Agreed, I thought the ending was amazing, totally unexpected. It's disappointing that so many people are saying they didn't like it. Great price for an incredible series.

hondo1978 12-04-2012 10:03 PM

It is free from my local library. It is a good series but I don't think I would watch it over and over again even with you know, number 6.

In Farscapes defense, sci fi canceled it a year early right before the S4 mid season finale. Also we can blame Wayne Pygram for the stupid flower crap. The mini was okay I guess minus the non sensical Sikozu twist . Keep an eye out for Defiance next year. Rockne OBannons back.

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." [dealnews.com]

decarillion 12-05-2012 05:58 AM

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

They could have found the crashed viper on earth for proof of that. I have no idea what you mean w/tieing the series into the modern world though.
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.

I've seen the show couple years ago so don't remember the ending that much... the ending did piss me off though and in my opinion they would've been better finishing the series about 2 episodes before they ended (with the great battle and just stop there)

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.

For those not rolling in the hundreds of extra dollars of disposable income a month, that is probably the wise choice.

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.

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'.
