I'm not really sure about the specifics, but the DVD set being released in September has a lot more stuff on it , including the Mini Series.  The UK version, available at Best Buy right now, is lacking on extras.  Save your money, wait until Sept.

Ed, yes, the US DVD will have the Mini Series and the first 13 episodes.

Wow...I'm definitely getting that! And Mike, I still have your copy of the miniseries. I've watched it a bunch of times, with pretty much anyone who will make the 3 hour committment!  ;D

I might still pick up the UK version, mainly because I already have the mini-series on DVD.

With the exception of the commentary on the Babylon 5 dvd's I usually don't watch to much on the extras.

Are there any extra scenes in the UK version?

There are no extra scenes or footage though. :P

I picked the UK set up yesterday and it says deleted/extra scenes right on the front package.

I haven't had the chance to watch any yet, but the British TV/commercial format is a little different than the US which allows for about 5 minutes of extra footage in each episode, that's why if you ever caught Monty Python or any other BBC shows on american TV, they would go 5 minutes past the hour/half hour.

WooHoo it's Friday!  BSG is a great way to end up the work week. Yeah, I know that's kinda lame, but wifey and I have a 10 month old, so we don't get out too often.

I'm kinda bummed out though, cuz after tonight, there's only 5 episodes left until January!

But the DVD will fill the gap nicely!

Sith Lord Chaos:

Excellent, info!  Thanks for the inside scoop!  I loved Baal too.

I had heard Anderson was looking to cut back on the show and that was why they couldn't make long term plans. Having them think about a finale EVERY year made for some great seaon finales too. =)
=================

Speedermike:

Ok we'll go back to Galactica. =p  Finding more survivors was a great addition to the show.  I had issues with it dragging along as well, first season I fell asleep a few times in the middle of the show. (good thing I tape them!)  Second season has been much better.

Interesting tid bit I picked up, not sure if this information is out there, but:

Jeff Bridges was approached to play Cain in the upcomming Pegasis arc and it turns out he's a huge fan of the show. However, he turned down the role because he swore never to play in a roll his father played. That would have been cool.

Michelle Forbes as Cain is going to be great.  I think she's one of the most underused talents on TV.  Her role in Homocide was great.

So...who on Galactica is a Cylon?

She certainly is, on both accounts.

I wasn't able to see Friday's episode until the 11 o'clock airing last night. Good episode. I like the development of the Cylon breeding program, and Roslin "playing the religion card". I'm also kind of liking the Tom Zarek character. There's some developing going on with him, and I think he could be a solid addition to the show.

Mainly, I don't remember enough about the old series to really know "what's coming", so this is all new to me.

As far as who's a Cylon in the fleet, I'm definitely going to say that Tigh's wife is a Cylon. They really left it up in the air when she was tested and passed, but then Number Six mentioned to the Doctor how they'll never know that everyone passes the test.

There's also the copy of Number Six that tried to have Dr Baltar arrested for treason. She's obviously flesh and blood (and circuitry), and still somewhere in the fleet.

As far as sleepers, there is the "Adama is a Cylon" accusation from the Cylone agent that was sent out the airlock by Roslin. I'm not sure that would be such a great idea though.

Anyone know how many more episodes are in this season? I have to say, this has been a great season so far!

Don't know Lando, and I don't care....I don't look ahead and I'm enjoying the ride.

Kind of late on this, but Sci Fi had a small Marathon of new BSG episodes last night.  Hope any of you that needed to play catch-up did.

I was lucky and just happened to catch that marathon.  Now I'm all caught up.  This series just keep getting better with each episode.
