Rise of the Toasters

Blastr somehow managed to acquire some exclusive looks at concept art coming out of the new “Battlestar Galactica” project “Blood and Chrome.” I’m sure the fact that the website is owned by the SyFy channel doesn’t have the slightest thing to do with their incredible journalistic scoop. Oh come on, I link to them all the time, it’s true, but there’s something disingenuous about them plastering “Exclusive!” on an article when they’re part of the corporation’s PR arm to start with. I might not have gone to a fancy journalism school, and I might just write about moving pictures, but I’m pretty sure that Deep Throat is supposed to be a source, not a technique.

What? Of course I’m still going to link to the pictures. I have principles not morals. I’ll just bitch while I do it. And buy the Hollywood Cog a thumb drive for Christmas.

So the show is another prequel, except this time SyFy got the lawyers to make sure that the fine print included something along the lines of explosions and space ships. Of course they couldn’t just make it a sequel because Moore was quite explicit that it ended with no spaceships and a whole lot of cave man sex.

Very early concept art below, including a giant Cylon snake, a properly murderous robot, and apparently Hoth.
