While not the best season as a whole compared to Seasons 1 and 2, There are many exceptional episodes that keep you hooked. The character development continues leading up to the final season. And I'm glad they're not splitting the DVD release into two parts like last season.

And yes, Amazon.ca does need to fix Canadian pricing.
I preordered this through Amazon.com and even after paying for shipping to Canada it's cheaper than the "sale" price at Amazon.ca.

Format: DVD
One of my favorite television series of all time along with 'The Wire'
and 'Breaking Bad'.

Like 'The Wire' this is a complex, Dickensian study of human nature,
not afraid of asking big questions, and meticulously plotted like a
great novel, so that each episode is a chapter in a much larger whole.

Just as 'The Wire' used the overly familiar cliché' world of the cop
show to jump off from and shatter our preconceptions, and 'Battlestar
Galactica' uses the sci-fi series, and the idea of human versus robot
wars the same way.

This is thinking person's sci fi, in the tradition of Arthur C. Clarke,
or Isaac Asimov. It's about why we are how we are, what it means to be
a human being, morality under constant pressure in times of war,
fathers and sons, impossible loves, metaphors for modern and recent
politics and real world situations.

My wife, far from a sci-fi fan was hooked after 3 episodes, and we tore
through 5 years of shows in just a few days. It's that addicting.

The acting is all at least quite good, and some cast members are
remarkable, creating characters full of depth, complexity and
contradiction. The writing is terrific, allowing the characters to
change and grow, but always in ways that make sense, creating seemingly
inexplicable conundrums, only to find surprising, sometimes shocking -
but ultimately logical and satisfying - ways to explain where they've
taken us. The special effects are generally very impressive for TV,
even if they're not really why you watch this show.

It also has some of the most tense episodes of television I've ever
seen, and some of the season enders left me completely wrung out and
blown away.

This was part of a gift for my boyfriend since I started his collection two years ago. We both love the series for it is so well acted, written, executed and directed. Once you start watching that series, you won't be able to stop until it's finished and you'll want more!

I bought them all when they were on sale at 20$, I usually hate sci-fi tv show because most of them have cheesy plots and crappy special fx, but it's probably one of the best tv show i've ever watched.

I had not watched any of the series before buying the dvds. Absolutely worth it! I loved every minute of BSG and the podcast commentaries work wonders for insomnia.

This show started out strong and remained so until somewhere in the second half of the second season. Season 3 still has glimmers of brilliance in it, though, so it's worth a look.

However, I must say the price discrepancy is really starting to get on my nerves. With the Canadian dollar pretty much at parity or even sometimes stronger than the US dollar, why am I paying 10 dollars more through Amazon.ca than Americans get through Amazon.com?

Format: DVD
In short, season 3 is pretty lousy. Season 2 reached an apex with the brilliant mid-season cliffhanger, "Pegasus", and the show has never reached those heights since. Indeed, the cracks were starting to show by the end of that season, with a few real clunkers in the second half.

Season 3 feels rushed and short of ideas. One also can't help get the sense that the writers looked at the "dark, gritty and really well-constructed" praise for the previous seasons, and thought that the important parts were the "dark" and "gritty". The show frequently hits the viewer with the sledgehammer of doom and depression without bothering to check if the plots make sense, engage, or offer interesting character development. Sometimes it feels as though the writers have painted themselves into a corner with the occupation storyline, the relationships of Lee and Kara and (worst of all) the constant in-fighting of the Cylons. The last of these leaves the show reminding me of "V", whose later seasons became a ridiculous soap-opera with the visitors killing each other just as often as the resistance did. Gone are the days when the Cylons were a mysterious, dark, fascinating menace. Instead, we know them intimately, and they feel like a bunch of kooky religious pals armed with high-tech weaponry. They're no longer scary, and they're just one faction among many, which might be interesting in a Tolstoy novel, but doesn't really make for exciting TV drama. We're not really rooting for anyone anymore.
