The toasters are coming back!! and we’re hoping that that frakkers at SyFy deliver this time..and from all reports thus far it looks like they will.

Filming has now begun on Blood and Chrome which is all about ..the blood of the humans and the chrome of the cylons mashing it up in a mano – a – toaster battle to the death.

Here’s the official press release:


2-Hour Pilot Chronicles Young William Adama’s Adventures in First Cylon War

Lili Bordan Joins Luke Pasqualino and Ben Cotton in the Cast

Production has begun in Vancouver on Syfy’s highly anticipated 2-hour pilot, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, the all-new chapter in the Battlestar Galactica saga. Universal Cable Productions will produce the event with Syfy utilizing cutting edge CGI and virtual technology.

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.

From the award-winning producers of Battlestar Galactica, this new action-packed chapter of the BSG canon was written by Michael Taylor form a story by David Eick, Taylor and Bradley Thompson & David Weddle and directed by Jonas Pate. David Eick, Jonas Pate and Michael Taylor will serve as executive producers.


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.
