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!
Back at the 2012 Upfronts, the Syfy channel announced plans to produce upwards of 28 new shows. Since then, they've also added M. Night Mshyamalan's 'Proof' and Bryan Fuller's 'High Moon,' and now one more is being added to the mix.
Boy, that Bryan Fuller is going to have a lot on his plate in the coming year. Not only is the former 'Pushing Daisies' and 'Wonderfalls' show-runner about to tackle The Munsters with upcoming reboot 'Mockingbird Lane,' but Fuller will re-energize himself with some fava beans and a nice chianti, taking 'Hannibal' to series in mid-season. Now we're learning Syfy wants a piece of Fuller, and is over the moon about 'High Moon.'
Though he's in post-production with his latest film 'After Earth,' M. Night Shyamalan isn't missing a beat and has a show called 'Proof' headed to the Syfy channel. The game plan is that he'll co-write and direct the pilot, and serve as executive producer.
The 'Star Trek' franchise has become a curious fish, what with the entirety of its 5-series canon being rebooted by J.J. Abrams' ongoing film series, while still keeping some tangential connections. With Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Benedict Cumberbatch now off on their own adventures through the galaxy, is there any room to return to the classic 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' universe? One star certainly seems to think so.
Whereas just hours ago, Syfy announced that it had at least five new reality series greenlit for production now at the 2012 Upfront event they've announced their largest development slate to date, with a whopping twenty-eight new series. But of the order, how many of them will actually make it to air?
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.
