We’ve now (hopefully) all see the final episode of Battlestar Galactica Blood and Chrome.

WHAT A FRAKKING AWESOME SHOW.

From beginning to end we had action, drama and were completely engaged. No we did not see the double cross coming with Bekka – that was a neat thing.

We also didn’t think Cocker would live. We were sure he was dead – so seeing him at the very end was really cool thing and gave this show a really nice happy ending.

It was also cool to hear the voice of Number six herself – Tricia Helfner – as the cylon hybrid snapping Bekka’s neck.

And oh yeah Husker’s got his own viper!!

So will this show – get picked up? WE SURE HOPE SO. No doubt this Machinima Prime thing was a test case..no idea if NBC Universal made the money they need…we sure hope they did and will continue to watch this show.

SO SAY WE ALL!!

David Eick Talks about Battlestar Galactica Blood & Chrome. It’s all about what makes Adama Tick. #bloodandchrome November 9, 2012

This afternoon, on this great occasion of the premiere of the latest chapter in Battlestar Galactica storied history, David Eick got on the phone with reporters (including ShowMeSciFi.com) to talk about Blood and Chrome

It truly was an eye opener for us.

For one, Eick rejected claims that SyFy cancelled the show or gave up on it. Instead he argued that the entire 10 episode arc was always intended to be some kind of web serial.

Going a step further he said that the show looks as good – or better – than shows with 10x the budget. That’s all because the show is doing its own effects in house and not sending them to a third party.

“If you can build an army that is accountable to production – with no overhead or amortization other than your show, so a rag tag  fleet of experts –  if you have the  time to put together thatt kind of squad you can do amazing things.”

Fundamentally the show is about what  makes Adama tick – and how betrayal and importance of a male figure to depend on are critical.

Overall the goal is to deliver hard hitting mission oriented accessible stories that enable new fans to enjoy the show as well as delivering to the die-hard fans as well. It’s about going into darker and more human places than other scifi shows.

We pulled one of the most interesting bits from the conf in the video below. Long story short, SyFy did no reject Blood and Chrome:

It’s finally here.

SO SAY WE ALL.

This highly anticipated chapter in the Battlestar Galactica saga takes place in the midst of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, the sentient robotic Cylons, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, gifted fighter pilot, William Adama (Luke Pasqualino, The Borgias), finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and hungry for action, Adama quickly finds himself at odds with his co-pilot, the battle-weary officer Coker (Ben Cotton, Alcatraz). With only 47 days left in his tour of duty, Coker desires an end to battle as much as Adama craves its onset. Lili Bordán (Silent Witness) also stars.

First episode is now up on Machinima:

Second Episode:

In March of this year, SyFy (you know that network that used to be SciFi Channel and now doesn’t support any real SciFi) CANCELLED the Battlestar Galactica spinoff – Blood and Chrome.
Turns out though that a full pilot has already been produced and we can all see it on Friday November 9th — or at least start to see it.
You see the plan from the braniacs at Syfy is to have Blood and Chrome show up as a webisode series. Remember, that back in February of 2011, SyFy green lit the two hour pilot. At the time SyFy wrote:

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, the sentient robotic Cylons, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a young, talented fighter pilot, William Adama (Luke Pasqualino), finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful Battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and in pursuit of the intense action that the Cylon war promises, Adama quickly find himself at odds with Coker (Ben Cotton), the battle-weary officer to whom he reports. With 47 days left in his tour of duty, Coker desires an end to battle just as much as Adama craves the start of it. Though they clash at first, the two men forge an unlikely bond when a routine mission turns dangerous and becomes a pivotal one for the desperate fleet.

Joining Pasqualino and Cotton in the cast is Lili Bordan, who will play Dr. Beka Kelly, a Ph.D. who worked for Graystone Industries that created the Cylon robots. Currently assigned to a secret military mission, Beka and Adama quickly establish a rapport.

Battlestar Galactica also has a history with Webisodes. Back in 2008, when the show was in one of its lost intra-season hiatuses, we got an aweome webisode series called ‘Face of the Enemy‘. Even earlier, back in 2007 we had the Razor Flashback webisodes, including one that serves as the touchstone for what Blood and Chrome is all about. Adama fighting in the first Cylon war.

We can hardly wait to see Blood and Chrome – and it’s hard to believe that SyFy did not go ahead and produce a full series.

Battlestar Galactica Blood & Chrome CANCELLED?! FRAK YOU SYFY!!! March 25, 2012

Not that any of us really need more proof – but SYFY Channel has no interest in scifi.

SyFy has just CANCELLED the Battlestar Galactica Blood & Chrome show – before it even aired.

They’re keeping the pilot as a standalone, but no show.

that’s right! the Frakkers have FRAKED us BSG fans yet again.

This show was the only good thing coming to SyFy that we were excited about and they killed it.

FRAK YOU SYFY.

Caprica Apotheosis – Series Finale WAS AWESOME January 11, 2011

Yes we had some issue with Caprica as a series, but the final five episodes of Caprica were FANTASTIC.

We just finally watched the final two episodes and they were easily the best of the whole frakking series.

Shear brilliance.

And the ending was a real ending which makes us think that the show was originally just supposed to be 18 episodes long..

IT was a total shock that Willy – the boy we thought for 16 episodes was the young Admiral — was in fact, not the Admiral.

What a twist.

And the whole killing that Guatraul thing – amazing.

Sarah Lacie as the holy mother of the monotheists – WOW.

But the best part of the whole show – and the series — was the transformation of the cylons and their apotheosis at atlas field. They saved humanity and became part of colonial life as a result.

And of course the ‘skin job’ version of Zoe …emerging from the same bath as the other skin job models of Battlestar Galactica.

no, not everything made sense…we still don’t know what happened to Tamra — and sister clarisse should have been put away…and we still think that Daniel Greystone himself was actually a Cylon too…but that will just have to remain a theory as Caprica is now done.

A fitting finale after 18 episodes and we can honestly say in retrospect, that the it was a fun ride. It ended at a good point and we got a real ending too.

SO SAY WE ALL!

Another fine episode — where we discover that the STO has a very highly placed mole in the Caprica police force.

the way the mole is discovered/exposed is really quite clever and the cinematography with the two woman walking on the path – which one will be killed? is stellar.

The whole STO drop ship thing with the mock attack was also amazing – we didn’t see that coming

Caprica as a show likely just needed time to mature — but the final five episode— so far – are really turning out well.

Smallville – Col Tigh debuts but does he know he’s a cylon? November 19, 2010

Actor Michael Hogan – perhaps best known to scifi fans as Col. Saul Tigh from Battlestar Galactica made his debut on Smallville this week.

Kinda of a wimpy, whiny episode but..

was neat to see how Smallville producers are preying on scifi fans sense of nostalgia.

At the end of the episode ‘Tigh’ get an eye patch – a la BSG.

The only thing left to do is to reveal that he is one of the final five cylons…

Alessandra Torresani wants to be Wonder Woman?

RLY?

Maybe…the former Zoe Greystone of Caprica fame recently updated her Twitter pic to the one left.

We like Torresani – but let’s face it Caprica sucked – her character was interesting but poorly written.

Maybe we’ll get lucky and this wonder woman wannabe will get  a role in Blood and Chrome –

Caprica CANCELLED – Blood and Chrome a GO!! October 28, 2010

Finally the frakking nightmare is over and SyFy has put Caprica out of its misery.

“We appreciate all the support the fans have shown for ‘Caprica’ and are very proud of the producers, cast, writers and the rest of the amazing team that has been committed to this fine series,” said Mark Stern, executive vice president of original programming at SyFy, in a statement. “Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, ‘Caprica’ has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season.”

Caprica had a great premise and a fine cast.

The problem was the fact that the story was too frakking slow and even after the 1.5 season re-started it didn’t get better. Each episode was more boring and tedious than the next.

Yes WE WANT TO KNOW how the Cylons were created and make war on the colonies.

YES we want to know what happens…but that now doesn’t seem likely to happen — on TV at least.

If we could get a book or comic book of caprica or heck even a made for TV move – The First Cylon War – we’d be happy.

Yes Caprica deserved to be canceled, but it does leave those of us that did invest our time in the show with a really empty feeling – in terms of plot direction.

Sure there were some basic connections to Battlestar Galactica, but just like Starbuck being an Angel – Caprica just didn’t make sense.

On a positive note – we will get some BSG action – Blood and Chrome another BSG prequel has been greenlighted by SyFy.

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, a sentient robotic race, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a brash rookie viper pilot enters the fray. Ensign William Adama, barely in his 20’s and a recent Academy graduate, finds himself assigned to the newest battlestar in the Colonial fleet… the Galactica. The talented but hot-headed risk-taker soon finds himself leading a dangerous top secret mission that, if successful, will turn the tide of the decade long war in favor of the desperate fleet.

We just watched last week’s Caprica episode –Retribution and yeaah it sucks.

It took us sooo long to actually watch the show, because to be honest — we’ve got better things to do than watch boring crappy TV like Caprica.

Retribution was slow and pointless.

Yes, Daniel Graystone has sold his soul – ok we get it. And sure Sister Clarisse is a vengeful witch – but the way the show is put together we just don’t care. Somehow a brilliant concept has been destroyed by poor directing/production/pacing and acting.

The only reason why we keep watching the show is because  we want it to get better. We want to know the history of the Cylons and how they rise up against the colonies.

AT this rate though, that’s not likely to happen as it’s doubtful that Syfy will renew this drek for a second season.

Caprica – Unvanquished – so is Amanda Graystone dead or not? October 9, 2010

So Caprica is finally back – with –Unvanquished no this was not a fantastic episode.

First of all, it feels like we’re missing something ..in between the final episode of season one – before the 1.5 start – greystone still controlled his own company and Amanda Greystone jumped off a bridge.

Now Daniel lost his company – ok we see that..but how? and now whats the deal with the Tauron mafia?

Amanda Greystone is dead right? Sister Clarice is just visiting her in holobands…she must be right??

Overall, this was a boring episode with little to no action (blowing up the Caprica stadium was kinda neat) and the drama was disconnected.

Die-hard fans like will stick it out, but after such a weak premiere for season 1.5, we doubt this show will gain any new converts.

Caprica is back and this half season – technically season 1.5 – will see the Cylons join the mob.

In an interview with press, Sasha Roiz, the fine actor that plays Sam Adama gave up the details:

“I think you’ll see a lot of people interacting with Cylons,” Roiz said. “I think it’s
basically what we’re driving towards is the introduction of the Cylons into this world. And so it’s going to definitely cross paths with just about everybody’s storylines.”

ShowMeSciFi.com was also on the call with Roiz and we picked out the best bits in the clip below:

Yes we’re real excited for the start of the 1.5 season of Caprica in a few weeks. Syfy now has a few teaser trailers up …this one is our fav.

We all know where this is headed – Cylons becoming sentient and attacking humans..but it’ll be interesting to see how this all gets pulled back with the original cylons – the final five – from Battlestar Galactica.

Syfy – may the gods bless you!

SO SAY WE ALL!!

Syfy has moved the return of Caprica up from January to October!!

That’s right, we won’t have to wait until 2011 for our Caprica fix.

“Though we initially announced the January return of Caprica, we still had hopes of finding a way to get the series back on the air sooner,” said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, Syfy and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions in a statement. “We’ve been able to successfully re-work our schedule, and are thrilled to bring the show back during what is traditionally Syfy’s most-watched time of the year. The outcome should also please fans who expressed their wishes for a shorter mid-season hiatus.”

Remember how season 1.0 ended…we’ve got a cliffhanger with the Cylon get blown up, Daniel losing his military contract, his wife killing herself……lots to look forward to in October!!

The other great thing is that Caprica will now be on the same night as Stargate Universe, with one show following the other.

So starting in October, Tues is now SYFY night for us!

Caprica returns in January – Proof that SyFy hates its fans July 22, 2010

What’s wrong with the management at SyFy?

This week they announced that Caprica would be returning for the second half of its first season — ok that’s good news – but that SUCKY news is that the second half of the first season won’t air till 2011.

What the FRAK is the point?

Why string fans on soooo long?

Haven’t the show already been produced?

Maybe in the change from SciFi Channel to SyFy they decided they had to make fans wait for stuff…then again the delay between half seasons of Battlestar Galactica was horrible too.

Frankly we just don’t get it.
