Thank the gods! It's been a long time coming since we first heard news of another 'Battlestar Galactica' prequel being produced at Syfy, but especially arduous considering all the development and distribution trouble that prevented 'Blood & Chrome' from going to regular series. The day has finally arrived, as Machinima has premiered not just one, but the first two episodes of the new 10-part series! So, does the "Blood & Chrome" fly, or is it just a frakkin' mess?

Earlier this week, we were ecstatic to learn that 'Battlestar Galatica's' long-awaited prequel series 'Blood & Chrome' would finally make its debut this Friday, November 9, albeit not in the full-series pickup we had hoped for. The pilot movie will instead be divided into 10 short episodes, to be displayed on Machinima before debuting in its entirety on Syfy next year. With that in mind, how would you like to see the first harrowing clip of a young William Adama in action?
Frakkin' A, it's about time! Since 2010 'Battlestar Galactica' fans have eagerly awaited news of the prequel series "Blood and Chrome," set to follow a young William Adama in the early days of the Cylon war. Though shot, the pilot bounced around through various phases before Syfy finally decided to pass, dashing many a fan hope until now. We've just learned that the series will in fact premiere this Friday, so check out the new trailer inside!
Despite not having a title (and probably not a finished script), we've been hearing about the "Female Expendables" projects for some time now. It's the kind of pitch that would definitely get you in the door: "Take 'The Expendables,' but remove all of the old dudes and replace them with hot, ass kicking ladies!" MMA fighter and 'Haywire' star Gina Carano is attached to star, but it looks like the first member of her team has been selected and anyone who has watched SyFy's 'Battlestar Galactica' will know what a great choice Katee Sackhoff for this kind of project.
Season 8 is proving to be a crucial year for the Winchester brothers, as 'Supernatural' moves ahead full steam with a new order. Not only has the show changed show-runners from Sera Gamble to the returning Jeremy Carver, but this year the Winchesters get back to the business of angels & demons as they search for the word of God. Dean was left in dire straits last year, so what 'Battlestar Galactica' vet is going to sink his teeth into helping him escape?
Sunrise, sunset. Whereas earlier today the bad-ass WonderCon footage and trailer of 'Battlestar Galactica' prequel "Blood & Chrome' exploded across the internet, fueling speculation that viewers would once again enjoy a regular series, now Syfy has chimed in on the definitive plans for the project. It's not frakkin' good.
Prequels are always a tricky notion, particularly when main stories left things in such a definitive place that it's hard to imagine mining anything worthwhile from a story whose endpoint you know. But where 'Battlestar Galactica' prequel 'Caprica' might have failed, 'Blood & Chrome' looks to be taking things in a whole new frakkin' direction.
