(Someday I'll get around to asking why some episodes throughout the series have "deleted scenes" while other episodes are available in both shorter broadcast versions and longer extended versions. Why are the deleted scenes segregated from some episodes but integrated into other episodes? Are some deleted scenes "canon", and others not? It's all so CONFUSING. And the Daybreak situation is even weirder, because it seems that the deleted scenes from Parts II & III may be segregated if you watch that episode on its own, but integrated when you watch that episode in conjunction with Part I. It's MADNESS, I say!)
Whoa, I just realized something. Weren't there some webisodes based on the Felix Gaeta character, somewhere during Season 4? I don't think I've seen them anywhere in this DVD set. Did I miss them, either here or with one of the earlier sets (Season 4.0, perhaps?)?

That would be Battlestar Galactica: The Face of the Enemy. AFAIK, it has not been released on DVD.

You can, however, watch them on Hulu. (Maybe not in Canada, though? I'm not sure.) They're very good webisodes, FWIW. I feel like it explains (or at least feeds into) some of the tension with Hoshi and Gaeta's descent fairly well.

Bingo. The website interrupts you even as you're just SEARCHING for the videos. I used to think at least SOME Hulu content was available outside the U.S., at the content provider's discretion, but apparently not.
Oh, but wait. Maybe there's a Canadian site ... and a quick bit of Googling turns up this. Yay! I'll have to get back to this when I have a moment.

"Blood & Chrome" is "about a young man's initiation into war: both the realities of war as fought by soldiers on the ground (and in Battlestars and Vipers), and the somewhat less real version portrayed in the media," according to Taylor.
"Blood & Chrome" would consist of nine or 10 episodes of nine or 10 minutes each, and it would make use of cutting-edge digital technology and special effects to depict the Cylon War. If it is greenlit to production, it will be filmed using green screens and virtual sets, not unlike Syfy's "Sanctuary" or James Cameron's "Avatar." Before "Battlestar Galactica" ended, high-tech scans were made of all the show's sets, so that the special-effects team will be able to re-create them (possibly even in 3D).
"I've seen the virtual, 3D version of CIC ['Battlestar's' Combat Information Center] and it's pretty damn cool," Taylor said. "And yet the movie isn't confined to Galactica. Far from it. It's a story that will take us to new corners of the 'Battlestar' world (or worlds), and yet it aims to be a very contemporary war movie in a lot of ways. I would say I'm thinking as much of Afghanistan and Iraq--the reality of 'Hurt Locker,' Sebastian Junger's 'Restrepo,' and similar movies--as I am about about the largely implied past of 'Battlestar.'"

Then we watched "The Plan." Ugh. In case someone wanders into this thread and hasn't seen "The Plan" - don't. Just, don't. It's not worth it, it's horrible, and you'll regret it. "The Plan" plays like a poorly-constructed clip show, recycling old footage, interspersed with new footage (though not including the entire main cast - there's nothing new with Starbuck, Helo, or Baltar) that is supposed to connect the dots on the Cylons' motivations. Let me make it easy for you - you ALREADY understand the Cylons' motivations better now than you will after watching this movie. The one thing the movie does well is expand on the destruction of the Colonies. But after the first 20 minutes, everything worth watching - everything - is done. AND, the movie includes shot after shot of gratuitous full-on nudity and sex throughout. Sigh. It's just a horrible, horrible waste of time.
"Razor" was awesome, the whole series was great, but "The Plan" is anti-good. )

The Cylon side of the attack was kind of cool though. Unnecessary, but cool.

I haven't seen any of Caprica, no.
Personally, I think it's a fantastic show. And while it's very different from the re-imagined BSG in many ways, it still manages to keep some of the same themes.
For what it's worth, I noticed that Hulu posted the first three episodes again too, just in time for the second half of season 1 (which, thankfully, got moved up to this fall).
