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.
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.Read more ›
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?
It could be argued that the mid-series doldrums were for a bit of light relief from the break-neck pace and allowed for episodes which provided much needed depth to the main characters and, in this respect, they succeeded. There was, however, far too much reliance on flash-backs and irritating conversations with people who were not there (not just between Baltar and the skinny blonde for a change).
Every sci-fi series seems to suffer from the occasional duff episode (even Babylon 5 had a few) so it isn't fair to be over critical; it is probably because the remaining episodes are so good that you notice the sporadic poor ones.

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.Published on Feb. 12 2012 by skIn job
