Syfy has finally settled on an air date for Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome: February 10th, at 9/8c. Blood & Chrome is the Cylon War prequel to their hit series, which started as a web series, then considered for a full blown series, then back to a web series (and denied it was meant to be on TV) – and likely a lame-duck series at that. But who knows…if the ratings are really good – plus sales of the Blu-ray and DVD on the 19th, maybe they just might consider at least doing more webisodes.
The CW has given the greenlight to The Hundred from Jason Rothenberg (Body Politic) and WB TV/Alloy Entertainment. Based on some upcoming books by Kass Morgan, The Hundred is set 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization. A spaceship housing the lone human survivors sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth to investigate the possibility of re-colonizing the planet.
A variation of Lord of the Flies maybe?
Almost forgot to post this! On tonight’s Merlin, Merlin tries to persuade Arthur to have mercy on one of his foes. Tune in at 10/9c on Syfy! Also catch Colin Morgan’s recap of last week’s episode, “The Death Song of Uther Pendragon”
