Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome Is Frakkin' Here

by Rich Handley

It seems like forever ago that Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome was first announced... and slightly less forever ago that it was put on hold without being given an audience and a chance to succeed. Now, SyFy, in its infinite lack of wisdom, has seen fit to break up the pilot into webisodes and not continue with the series beyond that. I don't know why SyFy seems to enjoy frakkin' around with a goldmine like BSG, but it's done so once more.

The sad part? Based on this first webisode, Blood and Chrome looks like it would have been good. It's a bit too Top Gun for my tastes, but there's much potential here, and Luke Pasqualino, the actor playing young Bill Adama, looks like he could be a good choice to follow in the shoes of Edward James Olmos and Nico Cortez. It's a shame that SyFy has seen fit to bury this series before giving it a chance. I guess it didn't have enough fake psychics, fake ghost hunters and fake-looking monster mash-ups in it.
