A Double Dose of Battlestar!
Great news Toaster fans. September 19th is the due date for Season 2.5 on DVD, so those waiting to find out what happens when the Pegasus and Galactica go head-to-head, here’s your moment. And equally cool, a promo for Season 3 aired during the premiere of SCI FI’s “Eureka” (which was quite good as well), and it was AMAZING. It seemed laden with spoilers so click here at your discretion.

An epic tale of intergalactic survival continues when Battlestar Galactica: Season 2.5 soars onto DVD on September 19, 2006 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. The explosive second half of Season Two of one of the most talked about shows on television arrives on a three-disc set with 11 episodes, including a DVD exclusive of the extended mid-season cliffhanger Â“Pegasus.Â” Presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound, the action-packed science fiction phenomenon comes with over 10 hours of special features, including deleted scenes, podcasts and a behind-the-scenes look with Battlestar GalacticaÂ’s executive producer David Eick. Battlestar Galactica, a daring 21st century adventure, with eye-popping action, groundbreaking visuals and intriguing characters, is the winner of a 2005 Peabody Award for Achievement in Electronic Media.
Battlestar Galactica: Season 2.5 picks up the saga of the human survivors of a brutal century-long war with an exclusive-to-DVD extended version of midseason nail-biter Â“Pegasus.Â” As they race toward the fabled home of mankind, Earth, the ragtag band of refugees are pursued by the relentless robots that have destroyed their home planets. Fighting for their lives, the band is also endangered by the presence of traitorous human alliances with the Cylon menace. Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell return as Commander William Â“HuskerÂ” Adama, and President Laura Roslin, the lynchpins of the unlikely alliance that holds the survivors together. The brilliant cast also includes Jamie Bamber (Band of Brothers), Katee Sackhoff (Halloween: Resurrection), James Callis (Bridget JonesÂ’ Diary), Tricia Helfer (Behind the Camera: the Unauthorized Story of CharlieÂ’s Angels), and Grace Park (Producer/Host of Â“CanadaÂ’s Next Top ModelÂ”). The DVD is priced at $49.98 SRP. Preorder close is August 15, 2006.
