Without a firm release date yet announced, some details of the Battlestar Galactica season three DVD set have begun to emerge. Amongst the usual deleted scenes, actor and creator commentary, and documentaries, Battlestar Galactica fans can look forward to an expanded and spliced version of the popular Battlestar Galactica webisodes that led up to the beginning of Galactica’s third season and successfully set the tone of what was to come. The real question is, will there be a second season of webisodes to precede Battlestar Galactica’s fourth season which seems so many light-years away.
Battlestar Galactica – The resistance featured mostly new characters involved in the formation of the human resistance movement on New Caprica. While many of the classic characters did appear, most of the heavy hitters were noticeably absent. Not that this had much of an impact on the endeavor, which really came to symbolize how to do this sort of thing ‘right’.
Apparently, there was enough action held back to expand the webisodes into what nearly resembles a full episode. Being shuffled into the playlist as episode zero. Whether or not there will be a new series for season four remains to be seen.
Where season two left us a year in the future, there was ample wiggle space to create a small group of new characters and have them flourish through their own adventures. Season three left off with klaxons blaring as a massive Cylon fleet prepared to have the fleet for breakfast. This hardly seems like the sort of situation where you could bridge the seasons in a story sense. Of course, they could keep us all occupied with some good old-fashioned dog fights.
