    Another new series.

    Can't say I am that excited given how poor I find Caprica, and I don't care for prequels. Still, you never know, the Razor flashbacks were actually quite good.

    "While maintaining the themes of politics, social propaganda, and the timeless question: what does it mean to be human? - 'Blood & Chrome' will also return us to the authentic, relentless depiction of combat and the agony and ecstasy of human-Cylon war, which was the hallmark of 'Battlestar Galactica's' early seasons," said David Eick.

    i'll be looking forward to see how this turns out. still not sure about Caprica. it's okay, but just isnt the same type of show as BSG, more of a soap opera with some slight BSG theme to it.

    If it's more of the same stuff from Razor then it could be very interesting indeed.

    We'll just assume you hate this before it even starts, Rob, save all those tiresome posts later on.

    Nothing wrong with a bit of drama, they did make it clear from the start it wasn't going to be the same thing as BSG. And it's kinda creepy seeing the Cylons being built and knowing the eventual results. Really hope they get a chance to conclude the story without being cancelled.

    The writing is on the wall for Caprica now this has been announced. Rightly so, its shit.

    Let us know when you actually like something. That might be worth a post.

    I dunno, it sounds as though they're trying to make a series concentrating on the parts I actually liked about BSG: tension and space battles, rather than pseudo-religious mystical bullshit tosh and the worst fucking ending of any show, ever.

    BSG was at it's best when it was about political infighting and space battles. IMHO it turned to shit after season 2, apart from one excellent two-parter in S4 which was about... political infighting.

    Some concept art for Blood and Chrome here:

    A general WTF, but an even bigger WTFF at the "Cython"!

    Yeah there's some weird stuff there. That beefy Cylon looks more advanced than the Cylons in new BSG.

    Those images really don't tally with the idea of the Cylons during the war. Looks like it'll be Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Retcon more than anything.

    Seeing reports that Luke Pasqualino, from fucking E4s Skins, is being cast as Adama in this. He is about as far removed in my mind as it gets from what I imagine a young Adama to be like. He looks nothing like Olmos, has a different skin colour, and is hardly an acting heavyweight given from what I saw when my missus tortured me with Skins viewings.

    He must have given the audition of the century to land this, and I hope it works out, I am still hoping this show is good, but it is strange, especially considering how good Nico Cortez was in Razor. Weird.

    Caprica sapped any enthusiasm I had for this.

    Plus the fact that its a prequel and most of the mythology was adequately explained in the original series.

    I give it 8 eps.

    Fcuking prequels. Honestly I cant think of anybody that gets excited about prequels.I cant think of any good prequel.(batman begins doesn't count,its a reboot).Its gotta just be writers being lazy/unimaginative. There was talk of the matrix films being sequels as well.fcuk right off. Lucas proved that prequels dont work with episodes 1-3. Those films shat all over star wars and made it iron clad that prequels are a bad idea.

    Put away those firey biscuits

  • Deleted user 27 January 2011 12:56:41
    Yeah prequels are a bit gashbag.

    Prequels suck. Piling them on is even worse. Either move forward or leave it alone.

    Tbh, I can't be bothered with BSG anymore, I think I'm done with it all. Too much crap clouding the good stuff.

    Enterprise was awesome!

    Not.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

  • Deleted user 27 January 2011 13:03:19
    The war ends because 5 cylons from a different world come and tell these cylons to pack it in, you naughty boys. I wouldn't mind seeing Saul Tigh and The Chief again, but the other 3 can fuck off, especially Anders the rubbish cunt. This might be good as a two hour movie, but I don't know about a full series, with some dude out of skins, who most of the time on that show was just a gormless looking pretty boy.

    PLEASE DONT BE SHIT

    I would imagine (or hope!) Sy-Fy learned their lesson with Caprica and will make this a bit more shooty pew-pew rather than focusing on Jesusy emowank.

    Ooooh a new series I had no idea! Sounds good even if that trailer looks well fake :)

    Missed out on Caprica as what I did see looked absolute pap but well up for more toaster smashing especially as I'm currently re-watching the awesomeness of Battlestar.

    I thought they had cancelled this after Caprica went under?

    When's it due to start?

    I think you, and a lot of people, are probably mis-remembering how much action is in BSG. The action that was there was undoubtedly excellent, but it could go several episodes where absolutely fuck all happened except jesusy emowank.

    Is that an actual trailer, or a fan-made one? It's 3 months old, not from an official company and google doesn't offer any other hits. :/

    From what I read just now it doesn't sound good. It started filming last February but in August AOL reported SyFy were apparently not happy and were thinking of turning back into it's original idea of a web series :(

    However November last year a site called "Airlock Alpha" talked to an FX guy and all that is supposedly done though so it is still coming from the looks of it. As to when it hits however is unknown but people seem to be looking at later this year or 2013.

    It's seems the is also a movie possibly coming directed by Brian Singer :eek:

    With the added bonus of them not removing the SYFY HD watermark from the BSG footage.
