my two cents 1000

All right, there’s not a lot of news to report this afternoon and we’ve been working new Blu-ray reviews all day. So today’s post is limited to this…

Longtime classic Battlestar Galactica fan and expert Jeff Kleist has turned in his in-depth review of Koch Media GmbH’s Region B/Amazon Germany-exclusive Blu-ray release of Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series, which also includes the complete spin-off series Galactica 1980. Even given the hoops you have to jump through, as a Region A consumer, to obtain an all region (and PAL compatible) BD player and a PAL compatible display, if you’re a fan of this franchise the German set is your only HD option… and it also happens to be pretty terrific. Click here to read all the details in Jeff’s review.

We have more news and BD reviews to come tomorrow, so stay tuned!

It's crazy that so few people of my generation are treating David Letterman's resignation as the seismic shift in culture that it is.
