Originally, Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, which is a prequel to the 4-season series of Battlestar Galactica, was slated to air this fall on Syfy… presumably around November.

The Plan shows us the beginning of the series again, but this time from the perspective of the Cylons as they deal with those pesky humans.

Now, Syfy is saying that The Plan won’t air until sometime in 2010… Yet the DVD is still slated to be released on October 27th on DVD.

I don’t get it.  OK, I might suspect it, but I’m not sure why Syfy would try and alienate us like this.

Are you kidding me?  I’m not sure how long the consumer’s memory is, but I’m still peeved that they broke up the BSG seasons into 10-episode bits so they can sell us 2 boxed sets of DVD’s for each season.

I guess they’ve been bolstered by how well Caprica may have sold on DVD being that they released it on DVD in April and is slated to air on January 22nd.

Regardless, I am looking forward to the prequel.

Are you strong enough to hold off buying the Battlestar Galactica: The Plan DVD’s until the air actually shows or will you buckle and snag it.
