From Amazon.co.uk

There was an understandable mix of emotions bubbling to the surface when the final episode of Battlestar Galactica was finally broadcast in the first half of 2009. On the one hand, this has proven to be vintage science fiction television, easily one of the most ambitious, daring and flat-out successful TV projects in recent times. And on the other, it’s all over, with this box set bringing together the final episodes of the show.

Inevitably, this final season wraps up many of the mysteries and narrative questions of Battlestar Galactica, none of which we intend to spoil here. The fate of humanity, the hunt for the fabled earth and the further revelations about the Cylons are packed in, and the standard throughout this final season remains sky high.

The actual ending itself, as it happens, proved quite divisive, but arguably that’s part of the strength of Battlestar Galactica. Because this is a show that, right to the end, doesn’t take the easy road, and delivers some of the most intelligent, dark drama of recent years. It’s a staggering achievement, and this final season, along with the entirety of the show itself, is set to still be talked about decades into the future. Quite brilliant, and not to be missed. --Jon Foster

Synopsis

Battlestar Galactica balances its striking special effects with character-driven drama and social commentary to create a show that's both entertaining and relevant. This critical favourite from Ronald D. Moore (Star Trek: The Next Generation) re-imagines the cult series from the 1970s with a new cast and more impressive villains. It also eschews the sunny outlook of Star Trek in favor of a darker vision of space and humanity as it comments on issues such as terrorism and civil liberties. Androids called Cylons have massacred billions of people, leaving only a small group of survivors. Led by Oscar nominees Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell, the human fleet searches for a mythical planet called Earth as they evade the Cylons.

Calling this season four is a misnomer. It's actually only the *first half* of season four. (Season four was derailed because of the writers' strike last year, and remaining half of the season - the last 10 or 11 episodes - will screen in early 2009.) I'd rate the actual content of the episodes as a solid five stars ... but I wouldn't buy this box set. I'll happily wait until 2009 and get the whole of season four in one package.

For those people (like me) who didn't realise this is half a season I have found out the following:

This is the first 10 episodes.
The last 10 episodes will be released in the UK under the title of 'Season 5' (hence the 'Season 4' title of this one).

This UK release will also include 'Razor' (although I can't find any confirmation of whether it will be the extended version of 'Razor'). It will also included deleted scenes and a sneak peak of the 2nd half of the season.

If, like me, you haven't bought Razor yet then this is still a good way of getting your BSG fix. Especially as I'm getting this as a birthday present.

Having now received this item:
This set contains:
The first 10 episodes of Season Four.
The EXTENDED VERSION of Razor (including commentary, deleted scenes and minisodes).
A sneak peek trailer of Season 5 (really 4.1) (which is not worth the disc space)
A whole bunch of deleted scenes from each episode.

Unlike others I was unable to buy Razor earlier - so the inclusion of the extended edition here is absolutely brilliant.
I also did NOT want to wait another year simply so have this season in a single box.
I'd rather watch these excellent 10 episodes NOW and wait for the final 10 until next year.

While i totally agree that it is a little deceptive the way the product is marketed, everyone who enjoys BSG knows that the final ten episodes still haven't been shown on terrestrial tv in the US yet so why would they be available. it's all down to the writer's strike and to be honest the writers have done a really good job with the ten episodes here. Razor is on teh first disc together with commentaries and let's face it, it's still one of if not the best Sci-fi shows around. I know it's a pain it's only half of season 4, or if you want Season 4.0 but the content is excellent and come on guys, who won;t be chomping at the bit to see what happens in the final ten episodes. Once you see the episode 'Revelations' you will be wondering how on Earth (or Caprica) they can end it nicely with the last ten. i for one will be really sad to see the end of this show but I'm enjoying it while it's on and this 4 disc set sits nicely while I wait for the last episodes. 5 stars all the way although it's only the first half of season 4, it says it on the box, if you;re not happy then you can wait but personally I just couldn't. Anyway enjoy the show, definitely 5 stars for the show!

I watched the two first seasons on bittorrent download, but when the box sets of whole seasons was suddenly so reasonably priced I just knew I had to have it.

For the quirks: like so many others have said this is a half season, although it does have the entire Razor. I didn't notice this initially and bought Razor separately. This should have been announced more clearly. Hence the 4 stars.

Otherwise I like these box sets. They're really slim (which is immensely practical), in a very decent quality. I'd say a fairly flawless execution, considering the only really negative thing would be that the DVD covers slide around a bit because they're very smooth. (Not too bad, huh?)

My worst realization was that there's a half season still in the works. I just finished Season 4 yesterday and now I'm getting those nasty flashbacks to when I was waiting for the Peacekeeper Wars (Farscape).

Clearly, since this is the last real season the stakes are upped and things get really wild. It's just amazing how everything shifts around and how some of the characters really get a chance to shine. Adama/Olmos, of course, gets sooo much great airtime and it's just a joy to watch. What really caught me completely off guard was the performance of Saul Tigh/Hogan ... oh frak me! What a performance. It was also about time that we got more under the skin of Roslin/McDonnell who, I think, has often been an underdeveloped figurehead in terms of her motivation, her likes and dislikes. Kara Thrace/Sackhoff also has a rather strong (half) season that really moves the character from frakked up steelheaded viper to ... something else. And Gaius Baltar/Callis? I wouldn't know where to begin regarding his transformations. There are times he's more despicable than Gollum and ...

If you have followed this series from the beginning you will no doubt be wondering if the fourth and last series of the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica will be able to maintain the standard set by Series One to Three. Of course, this is not the season that the Sci-fi Channel originally planned - the writer's strike put paid to that - but considering the newspaper reports at the time suggesting that shows were either cancelled or curtailed, I think BSG fans are lucky that season four was made at all, especially considering the rumours that it was going to be canned after Series Three! It would have been a shame to end this groundbreaking series prematurely, which allegedly happened to Farscape (but not due to a writer's strike), and come up with an ending that was completely unsatisfactory from the auidence's point of view. At least the end of Series Three neatly tied up most of the plot lines so if the rumour had been true the fans would not have been left with a completely unexplained void.
One thing though, this DVD set includes the extended feature Razor, which has been released separately. I cannot say if the two are identical, but according to the blurb on the version I have of the earlier release it is an `Exclusive Edition' with unseen footage. Bonus material is given on discs one and four; on disc one there is a commentary to Razor that also appears on the exclusive edition and undermines its exclusivity, and a prequel story about William Adama in ten 3-minute minisodes and like Razor seems to be a digression from the main plotline. While on disc four there are a couple of deleted scenes, which doesn't interest everyone and what is billed as a `sneak peak at the final season'.
