    I think I’ll just wait for the full season. or until both halves are really cheap.

    I’ve never been a big fan of these half season releases i got burned with BSG season 2.0 and 2.5 because i didn’t read the box correctly

    While the studio listening to fans may have been a factor, I suspect that the poor sales of the previous release played a substantial role in the studio’s decision to cut the blu-ray asking price nearly in half.

    @mattcci,
    The poor sales of 1.0 is mainly due to fans holding out until the complete season is released in 2011.

    The whole season will have everything that 1.0 and 1.5 has and will be a more cost effective purchase.

    I’m happy to hold out for the complete season, mainly because 1.0 and 1.5 are not going to be released like they do in the US. We have no choice as UK fans, but to wait for the complete season.

    Plus, if MGM follows the recent trend of other shows getting released on Blu-ray, then the complete season boxset will be thinner than having to single amaray cases next to each other. Thinner season boxsets means more shelp space, lol.

    I’ve already got the first part so I’m so excited to get the second half, but it’d be great if they’d just release a full season at a time :)

    This series is already a mile ahead of Atlantis. Hopefully it can continue down the road it’s on and move closer to familiar galaxies as it does. I don’t think I can enjoy the show if Destiny doesn’t return home before the end of the series. Nice price for the Blu-ray set, definitely picking this up.

    Ordering 1.0 and 1.5 on Amazon it STILL comes to $60 for the Blu-ray entire season (20 episodes).

    I ordered 24: Season 7 for $43 dollars for 24 episodes.

    Hardly a deal from MGM…

    I think the reason that 1.0 did not sell very well is that it was not very good.

    Already have (and love) the 1.0 edition so I’ll picking this up as well. Nice to see some of the supporting cast getting some interview time. Will probably get it on blu-ray as I have the first half on blu-ray. Good to see they dropped the price down though.
