I Still Don't Trust My Toaster: "Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome" Trailer

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trailers | November 6, 2012 | Comments ()


It's been tempting with every iteration of spin off or movie that SyFy has attempted with the "Battlestar Galactica" universe to just dismiss them as transparent money grabs of dubious merit. But then they go and have merit that is anything but dubious and it ruins the easy storyline in our heads. The spinoffs and movies have been of varying quality, but they have always been worth watching. They're like the books of an aging great author, who isn't producing at the quality of his prime, but damned if he doesn't still land a few great hits like a punchdrunk boxer. I like my metaphors like my nuts: mixed.

So "Blood and Chrome" has been in development for a while, long enough that I hardly remember what the last spin off was ("The Plan" in 2010, it seems like longer ago than that). "Blood and Chrome" is set during the first Cylon War, and features a young Bill Adama as a pilot.

Here's the trailer:

There is a distinct lack of space opera on television and in film these days, which is quite inexcusable given the advances in CGI that make such projects cost a fraction of what they did a couple of decades ago. "Blood and Chrome" premiers on November 9th in webisode form, of which there will be about a dozen adding up to a solid two hours. The entire two hour production will be released after it has been broadcast on the web, which is an innovation that I hope catches on.

I'm still waiting for this generation's version of "Battlestar Galactica: 1980".

    Admiral Adama was quite the looker when younger.

    I like my metaphors like my nuts: cupped gently in velvet gloves

  • Drake

    Dipping gently into Trump's mouth?

  • Green Lantern

    Man I've REALLY got to get caught up. Still haven't finished the Sci-Fi (Siffy?) series.

  • Stephen Nein

    I can't bring myself to watch the last 3 Caprica episodes.

  • Green Lantern

    I liked Caprica. The finale was rushed but well done IMHO.

  • layla

    I'm stuck halfway through the final series of BSG. I just don't want it to end, so this way, I'm refusing to let it end!

  • layla

    * final season

  • I want the WHOLE SERIES!

    Battlestar Galactica is the best series that ever was, period.

  • Katylalala

    I absolutely agree with you.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    Now that's just silly hyperbole. Best science fiction series? Yes.

  • I've watched the series three times and I stand by my statement.

  • Dragonchild

    This is probably going to get drowned in retaliatory downrates, but being perfectly honest, I didn't last more than a few episodes. It got too predictable, and not it a good way. When I was able to reverse-engineer entire episodes, I lost a great deal of ability to praise it in fairness.

  • I have duly downvoted. Nothing personal :)

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    As have I. However it is not the best and am willing to put that to the public for a vote.

  • I rarely agree with the public.

    So what's your call?

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    The Wire or Breaking Bad.

  • The Wire did nothing for me--I'd pick Homicide: Life on the Street over it any day. Breaking Bad is in the top three.

  • Benedict, Dirk

    Man, how I've missed Bear McCreary's drum-centric scores. Get's me all pumped up for robot killin'!

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    Watch, this will be one of those "Not available in your country" type videos and I'll have to burn the internet to the ground.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    I don't think so. Machinima made "Halo: Forward Unto Dawn" available in all countries on Youtube, so I expect this will be, too
