Posted August 7, 2013 12:14 PM by Webmaster
Amazon's Blu-ray Gold Box Deal of the Day involves the 21-disc Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series box set, which bundles all four seasons of the Ronald D. Moore's hit BSG series (as well as "Razor" and "The Plan"). Universal's Battlestar Galactica collection is available, today only, for $89.99 (a 70% markdown from its SRP of $299.99).
This series bundle collects the entire series as it aired on the Sci-Fi Channel between 2003 and 2009; all series episodes and extended episodes are presented in their original 1.78:1 aspect ratio. The set also includes all of the special features from the individual season packages, among them U-Control tracks, 5 extended episodes, 22 audio commentaries, 57 podcast commentaries, deleted scenes, video blogs, behind the scenes documentaries and featurettes, and dozens of additional extras.
The Gold Box Deal runs today only (8/7/2013), until midnight PST.
Not bad for a price drop, but I ended up getting the region-free boxset through Amazon UK back in June when they had it at a Gold Box price of $40-45 (incl. S&H). The only thing missing from the boxset was The Plan, but for the price it was a minor omission given the price value. If Amazon gets it anywhere near that price sometime in the future, I'll probably consider getting the US version.
