(Shadowlocked)   Awesome new trailer for BSG: Blood & Chrome makes case that Star Wars is not the space opera franchise you're looking for. Well, for the next 3 years. But Blood & Chrome premieres online Friday. Yes, already. That was fast. Almost Faster Than Light   (shadowlocked.com) divider line 75

Sigh.

This trailer is ancient. This project was in development before syfy pulled the plug on Caprica. There is no series coming, just this pilot, which will be busted up into "webisodes" before syfy runs it once inbetween repeats of Sharkbama vs Giant Hemorrhoid. Then they;ll release an "unrated" version on home video as a chas grab.

fark them.

Epic Fail!

They have totally farked over the BSG franchise. First Craprica sucked donkey balls then they bail on Blood and Chrome. They could have ridden the franchise for multiple series over decades, but no, they would fark up a metal ball with a rubber mallet.

Guess we'll have to continue to fap to the DVDs whenever Starbuck comes on the screen.

Can someone explain to me a couple of things:

Were some of the human hybrid cylons once people who some how transferred themselves into robot bodies through that virtual reality program thingee?

What happened to the whole 'bow of Athena(?)' thing that Starbuck found?

What happened to the one black guy from the Razor special dvd? He's buddies with Adama and is welcomed back to the fleet after being gone so long then just disappears?

I loved BSG but the last season, especially the last 2 episodes were horrible. Starbuck is an angel? WTF?

Thanks in advance for your answers!

I'm fine with that if it means better quality. I was impressed with the Forward Unto Dawn Halo webisodes that were put up on Machinima. If they do it with Blood and Chrome, it will probably be just as enjoyable.

Because syfy has discovered it's easier and cheaper and much more profitable to simply run ghost hunters and wrasslin' and similar shows and make an absolute killing on profit, as opposed to spending a ton of cash on writers and actors and special effects and things like that.

I disagree. The first 1-2 seasons were great sci-fi, some of the best in recent years.

The last 1-2 seasons demonstrated that the writers did zero planning ahead. Seriously, they had less of a plan than they guys from Lost.

LOLWUT? Disco Mormons in Space was better than the remake?

Why SyFy didn't use a new BSG series to act as "Loss Leader" to at least add value to their crappy hybrid-monster shows and random ghost-based series is beyond me. At least it would create a mild petina of legitimacy.

What makes the cancellation of this show so odd is that it was cancelled in development. It wasn't even aired, and they said no. (There was a rough version aired for execs...) So It either A) sucks REALLY bad, B) Was too expensive as compared to Mansquito-shows or C) A combo of the two previous points.

Just watch it over again in it's original form: Deep Space Nine.

I thought it was terrible. I lasted about an episode and a half. There were no likeable characters and it seemed they could all be counted on to do the dumbest, most selfish thing at any given moment. All the characters were assholes.

Dunno, couldn't get into Caprica. I think they were just full-on AI, though.

What happened to the whole 'bow of Athena(?)' thing that Starbuck found?
I assume the Arrow of Apollo was left in the antechamber to the Tomb of Athena after it was used to open the tomb. It was essentially useless after that anyway, but I would have kept it for a museum piece.

What happened to the one black guy from the Razor special dvd? He's buddies with Adama and is welcomed back to the fleet after being gone so long then just disappears?
At the end of the episode, he left the military and went to live on another ship.

Sounds like you're talking about BSG 2.0, otherwise known as SG:U

I liked BSG. The first 2 seasons are great, the last few make a few things unravel and start to fall apart a bit, but they're still ok. The final 4 or so episodes were just stupid. And I don't just mean the "God did it" type stuff.

I think part of the problem is that they started listening to, and trying to please the fanboys. When the fans started bantering about the Final Five, the show started to be more about that, using the phrase constantly. And it got crappier.

SyFy made half a billion last year because they changed their model from "expensive Science Fiction" to "cheap B grade schlock".

They cancelled B&C because they figured out that the audience wouldn't watch it on SyFy - they'd watch it on torrent. SyFy's original model was to make money off broadcast and DVD sales (this funded SG1 for 10 years) - except DVD sales cratered during SG: Atlantis's run. Atlantis (and a lot of other stuff that SyFy made) isn't cost effective without the DVD back end that SG1 had.

When people stopped buying DVD boxed sets (mostly because they could torrent a season and keep it on their hard drive), SyFy had to change their business model to survive. They did. They cancelled stuff like Eureka and moved into stuff like Crocosaurus.

People are playing around with other models - such as creating TV that ties into MMOs - but in the long run expensive stuff only gets made if there is an audience that will pay enough for it to recoup production costs.

Caprica started off slow as hell, but it really came together well in the last few episodes, and it ended on a really strong episode that I thought set things up well. They just spent way too long getting to the point of the story.

There was some good potential there that was wasted. What I would have loved to have seen was Adama's lawyer father fighting for Cylon rights when a faction of them tries to use legal means as a last ditch effort to become recognized as sentient beings. When he fails to sway the courts, the Cylons are left with no other choice but to take up arms. It would be a much better way to use that character than having him doing mobster shiat with his brother, which just seemed a pointless distraction in the story.

/The whole Bill Adama switcheroo was just stupid, though.

It probably didn't help that season 4 got farked up by the writer's strike. And didn't they basically think the show was over at one point but then got a surprise renewal? I seem to recall someone saying they wrote the episode where they found the destroyed "Earth" as the end of the series.

Though I agree that they did a pretty thorough job of writing themselves into a corner near the end.
