Starting the year in real annoyance

Apart from revising the novel, I have been rewatching Battlestar Galactica for the book Jen and I are doing for Tauris. Because I was caught up in rewatching, I did not get around to actually opening the Season Four box set I ordered at the beginning of December until I got to that point in my rewatch, this evening. And of course sod's law dictates that the one and only time you don't check is the one time that someone has sent you a plastic sealed box with all the individual cases AND NO FRAKKING DISCS WHATEVER.

I did this through Amazon and so the money is guaranteed and I will eventually be reimbursed - it is, however, majorly inconvenient because one of the sensible tidy things I did was, of course, to remove Season Four from my hard disc the moment the discs came... I have the first couple of episodes on my backup disc, but none of the later ones.

Any nice people out there who can send me stopgaps?
