Blood And Chrome "By your command" !

Just finished watching the complte series Battlestar Galactica on NetFix
(getting our 10 bucks worth)

Next came...Caprica

Many Sy Fyers just couldn't give Caprica a chance. I personally enjoyed it. It lasted one season that was split in two.  I especially enjoyed the Tauron mafia like culture.

Here is my photo creation in memory of the Taurons.

Catch the final five episodes now on SyFy online [here] The final five is like a long movie and really proved to the heckler uptight shit talkers that it was a great show.

Personally, I think that when they showed less of the actress Alessandra Torresani who played the teenage daughter, Zoe of the inventor of the Cylons.  All the perve pedo syfyers geeks bitched about it being boring.  She made geek sci fi chic of the year, though.  The final five triumphantly proved all wrong.

coming soon...Blood & Chrome

"All of this has happened before and all of this will happen again"!
Sy Fy has given the OK to make the pilot of a new series.

"Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, a sentient robotic race, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a brash rookie viper pilot enters the fray. Ensign William Adama, barely in his 20's and a recent Academy graduate, finds himself assigned to the newest battlestar in the Colonial fleet... the Galactica. The talented but hot-headed risk-taker soon finds himself leading a dangerous top secret mission that, if successful, will turn the tide of the decade long war in favor of the desperate fleet"  [read more at source].

In contrast

I remember when my grandma would have to watch the old series because of Lorne Greene.  She was a old and simple filipino woman who looked like 'Sitting Bull' and I did not believe she understood the Cylon threat.  I caught her saying 'no like' when Baltar the traitor would come on the screen.

The success in bringing back an old series idea is amazing.  I do believe that this is the best series (even surpassing Star Treks) made available on TV ever.  

There is a wiki for Battlestar Galactica with links and book references. [link here]

Hey there, just one degree warmer here. We did get 3 inches of snow Thursday into Friday, can you believe that one employee in my department called to say she was snowed in? That's the crap that drives me nuts. Happy Holidayz
