Here are episodes 3 and 4 of Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome (as a double feature – one video) – Enjoy!
On a conference call Friday, producer David Eick talked about Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, where the first two webisodes went online Friday. And he wasn’t too happy about the characterization that it was a “failed pilot”.
“I feel like there’s a certain record to set straight which was a little bit frustrating to me a few months ago when I saw the headlines that the Blood & Chrome project had somehow been rejected or was a failed pilot or wasn’t going to make it on the air,” he said. “It was never intended to be a traditional pilot, so to speak, such that Syfy not picking it up in a traditional manner to an episodic series was some kind of a rejection or failure. It was always developed at least from my point of view as a project for an online environment. And there’s something that we would develop and structurally, narratively build as a ten-part sort of a series.
“Kind of like the Raiders of the Lost Ark style, adapted to the 1930s style movie serials where you have ten minutes of story and a cliffhanger followed by ten minutes of story and the cliffhanger. And then after ten of these episodes, it would all kind of resolve itself in a pre-act structure as a whole movie. And so when I set out to develop this, my thinking was to design a mission, so to speak.
Episodes 1 and 2 are now online of Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome thanks to MachinimaPrime – but you can watch them right here!
Syfy will air the uncut two-hour version in February 2013, along with a Blu-ray and DVD release on February 19th, 2013 which will include deleted scenes and a visual effects featurette! (pre-order now and help us pay the bills…)

I started hearing rumors over the weekend, but they appear to be true: The pilot of Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, a prequel to Syfy’s Battlestar Galactica which did not get picked up as a series, will be released online as 10 “webisodes” to 7-12 minutes each via Machinima’s MachinimaPrime YouTube channel. The first episode will be released this Friday, with the remaining episodes following over the next 4 weeks.
Syfy still plans to air the entire two-hour pilot sometime in early 2013.

You may not recognize his name, but if you watched TV in the 1970s and 1980s, you’d probably remember the face. Richard Lynch, who often played the bad guy in episodes of a large variety of TV shows as well as movies like The Sword and Sorcerer, passed away this week at the age of 72.
I can still see his face in a variety of things. The first one I thought of was Wolfe from the original Battlestar Galactica two-parter “Gun on Ice Planet Zero”, and then later as Xavier in the three-part Galactica 1980 episode “Galactica Discovers Earth”. And he also appeared in Buck Rogers, The A Team,
Fancy the idea of taking up arms against some of your favorite heroes from SF film and television? Or fancy a blaster fight with a squad of Stormtroopers led by General Motti? (Hey, at least that last one should be easy…we know how well Stormtroopers shoot!)
Well, you might have your chance at Comicpalooza, in Houston May 25-27!
“The next best thing to being a sci-fi or action hero has to be shooting a sci-fi or action hero with a gun. Or maybe being shot by one,” says John Simons, founder and Chairman of Comicpalooza, the Texas International Comic Con. At least that’s the premise that led to the Badass Celebrity Smackdown, in which fans attending Comicpalooza May 25-27 will get their chance to pit themselves against stars of some of the biggest sci-fi and action franchises in Hollywood while helping US veterans at the same time.
