'Battlestar Galactica' Season 4.0 DVDs Announced
'Battlestar Galactica' Season 4.0 DVDs Announced
Battlestar Galactica has had a strange history on DVD.  Seasons 1 and 3 of the Sci Fi Channel series were released in box sets that contained every episode from each season, while season 2 was split in half, forcing fans to buy two full-priced box sets to get the same number of episodes.  It's possible Universal Home Video split the season to tide fans over during BSG's lengthy mid-season hiatus, or it's possible they simply did it to make more money.

Unfortunately for those who hate buying split seasons, it looks like season 4 of Battlestar Galactica is going to be released in two separate sets.  TV Shows On DVD recently revealed the release date and extras for the BSG Season 4.0 DVDs.

Season 4.0 of Battlestar Galactica will be released on January 6, which is a good indication that the remainder of the season will debut on the Sci Fi Channel later that month.  The set will contain the 10 episodes from the first half of the season, as well as both the broadcast version and unrated extended version of the Razor TV movie.  Razor was previously released separately, which means if you're anything like me you're now going to own it twice.

The extras on the set are as follows:

Though there are no concrete plans to release Season 4.0 on Blu-ray, The Digital Bits has announced that Battlestar Galactica will make its debut on the format later in 2009.  The 4.0 box set will retail for $49.98, which means you can expect to pay the same amount for Season 4.5 in the future.
