Razor

I'm heading to a pre-release screening of Battlestar Galactica: Razor tonight. That should be a fun time. I haven't seen any new Battlestar Galactica in a year now, thanks to the horrid delays in the release of the DVDs and my previous cancelling of cable.

Update: Razor was amusing. While Battlestar Galactica is a good show, this is really no different than a "regular" two-episode story arc like the original episode Pegasus was. So, it was good, but not really unusually good. One nice thing is that there are no spoilers if you haven't seen season 3 yet, other than that they eventually leave the planet they're stuck on at the end of season 2, which was so obvious that I didn't even realize it was spoiled until after it was over. They don't, for example, show any of the "new" Cylons revealed in season 3 that I don't know about yet.

A woman there confirmed the rumor that I had heard recently, that season 3 isn't coming out on DVD until April 2008 now, which is the new start date for the final season 4. That's obnoxious. I guess I won't be watching Battlestar Galactica during my end-of-year vacation expiration blowout bonanza.

You cancelled cable? When did you do this?

More than a year ago. I still have local channels delivered to me over the cables that also deliver my internet access, but that just costs a few bucks a month, so I don't really consider it "getting cable." I might consider dropping even that and getting an HD antenna.

April? BOOOO. I'm glad I downloaded them... it's not my fault they are restricting product I would gladly purchase (and will purchase once they are released).

Any clue why they are waiting so long to release it to DVD?

The most popular explanation for April that I've heard is that that's when they plan on starting to air the final season, Season 4 (except for Razor, which is in a couple weeks).
