They’ve traveled millions of miles and defied relentless attackers, but nothing will prepare the human race for what lies ahead as Battlestar Galactica 4.0 arrives on DVD! In ten gripping episodes, relive each pivotal moment as the civil war amongst the Cylons escalates and the quest for Earth continues. Loaded with riveting bonus features, this 4-disc set includes the unrated, extended version of Battlestar Galactica: Razor that never aired on television. Presented uninterrupted and in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound, it’s the epic phenomenon that critics call “a truly great show!” (Mary McNamara, Los Angeles Times)

The difference? Season "4" includes all 20 episodes plus Razor. Season "4.0" includes just the first 10 plus Razor. After reading the reviews, I bought Season "4.5" in addition and ended up having to return it since the 4.5 episodes were already included.
I picked up this DVD set at a store that was selling it early, so I'm able to comment on its contents first hand.
For those who are new to the show, or are trying to catch up, this season 4.0 box set only contains the first 10 episodes of season 4 (which make up the first half of the season (the second half will commence January 16th, 2009.)) This style of packaging is similar to what they did with season two (the entire season is purchasable over two box sets: Battlestar Galactica: Season 2.0 and Battlestar Galactica: Season 2.5 They will no doubt release a 4.5 box set later in the year.
Also included with this box set is Battlestar: Razor (which can also be purchased separately: Battlestar Galactica: Razor (Unrated Extended Edition).) This is great if you don't already own Razor.
Overall, it's a great box set. The lack of the second half of the season is made up with the bonus Razor disc (which isn't so great if you already own it.)
This was unfortunate for me personally, as I had ordered "Razor" separately, on the understanding that it was not inlcuded.
So if you purchase this, I would suggest not purchasing "Razor".
In season 4, they leave all that behind and the story-telling is taut and compelling again, constantly leaving you with the question of "Where can this show possibly go from here?" highly recommended - try it, you'll love it.
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 ›
This is a great offer. You get season 4, season 4.5 and razor all in one package. All the extras are there making this an easy purchase of all the items for the price of one.
As this is the first half of the last season, it should be working towards a gripping conclusion and a mass tidying-up of loose ends. Unfortunately, it seems to have lost the drive and vision of the earlier seasons.

The dvd is great, however it is Region2 designation and it can't be played here in Canada. I recommend checking the Region code before you buy.Published 5 months ago by MrSpence
