Battlestar Galactica -- Daybreak, Part I

OK, completely non-medieval question here. I missed BSG on Friday, which is normally not a big deal because I can usually watch it on the next week. Yesterday and today, however, SciFi seems to have only the episode recap up, and not the episode itself.

What gives? Does anyone know where, if anywhere, we can see the episode "Daybreak, Part I" now?

By the by, my schedule may cause me to miss the series finale next week too, and if I have to wait until the DVD comes out to see the end, my head may 'splode.


  1. If you use iTunes, you can buy the episodes off of there. Apparently they have "Daybreak, Part I" up there already, according to the folks on the Scifi forums:

    (Yeah, I'm just a wee bit obsessed with this series, myself.)

  2. Have no fear: they're showing it again before the two-hour series finale next week.

    For the first part of Season 4.5, SciFi and Hulu were posting videos on the day after broadcast. For some reason, for the last couple of episodes, they've changed the policy to wait 8 days after broadcast before posting. That means that, as of now, there's no legitimate way to watch it for free online. Why on earth would they do this, effectively shutting people who happen to miss an episode out from getting caught up to watch future episodes when they air? Who can say. Their logic is unfathomable.

  4. Does your cable provider have an "on demand" section? Mine does, and there are both pay and free television shows and movies there. Fortunately for me, BSG is one of the free TV shows because I'm a week behind.

    If they're showing it as a 2 hour finale next week, that'd be v. cool, though I really can't see how they're going to tie it all together and end the series in just 2 hours.

    BTW, did you see Kings? A bit of Shakespeare in there, but even more, talk about rewriting the Bible!

    DAMNIT! TV PEOPLE! They're holding onto their dying business model. The only way we can stop them is to stop watching the broadcasts completely, forcing them to air it online in the hopes that some admen will buy time there. We want ALL TV TO BE ON DEMAND!!! Stop forcing us to schedule our days around when you decide to broadcast! frakkers!

  6. I've been catching eps over at Watch Battlestar Galactica. It posts the new ones with 12 hours of airing on SCIFI.

    Beware, it's a .com site so you have to deal with those pesky pop-ups. But if you don't have cable like me it's a small price to pay %-{)>
