Battlestar Galactica junkies, your day has arrived.Â If you’ve been jonezin for new BSG content like I have, these two premiere episodes of Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome are going to result in a major geekgasm.Â Looking much more like a contemporary reboot than a web-spinoff, Blood and Chrome is a bit of a bittersweet experience. At nearly every level, the series is as well acted and well written as early episodes of the Galactica reboot.Â Production value is at times sketchy, with some bizarre simulated ‘lighting’ in the interior scenes, but if this were a demo reels meant to sell a new series to a test audience, the verdict would be SOLD.
Since there is no word at this time as to whether or not Syfy is planning to revisit Battlestar in the form of a weekly series,Â Blood and Chrome is all we get for now.Â Ten episodes, eight remaining. Enjoy!
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 BordÃ¡n (Silent Witness) also stars.
