My TV and Me

From the LA Times: “Syfy has just announced “Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome,” a two-hour spin-off pilot that gets back into the Viper with a young version of William Adama and executive producer David Eick. We caught up with the veteran creator to get some early intel on a project that will be getting underway after the first of the year.”

I’m sorry. I know, that as a huge fan of BSG I’m supposed to be jazzed about this project; however, I am not. It feels like SyFy is milking BSG for all it’s worth – First: Razor, not bad, but completely unnecessary; Second: The Plan, meh; Third: Caprica, cool to look at, but honestly I find it muddled, with characters that are almost all unappealing. These mediocre spinoffs/side projects do harm to the original series, I think, and I can’t imagine this new one will be any different.

I say they should leave well enough alone and just keep airing the 4 seasons of BSG over and over again.



  1. I agree, Gina. We tried watching ‘The Plan’ and were basically put to sleep by it. The 4 seasons of BSG cannot be duplicated or improved upon. I hate to see them keep dragging the same characters back in different settings. I want to remember them as they were.

  2. I think this one could be different than the other BSG spin-offs (Caprica and The Plan). We know the end result of the first war, but there is still a lot to be told. I don’t think it will be as good as BSG, but more likely it will turn into a war drama.

  3. I hope it is, Chris. I will definitely check it out.
