An all-new chapter in the Battlestar Galactica saga, Blood & Chrome takes place in the midst of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, the sentient robotic Cylons, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a young, talented fighter pilot, William Adama (Luke Pasqualino, The Borgias), finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Though Adama quickly finds himself at odds with his co-pilot, the battle-weary officer Coker (Ben Cotton, Alcatraz), the two men must set their differences aside when a routine escort mission with an enigmatic passenger (Lili Bordán, Silent Witness) turns dangerous and becomes a pivotal one for the desperate fleet.

I found those shows wanting in all the ways BSG delivered so well; realistic and gritty storytelling based on real characters . Enter Blood and Chrome to the rescue. Naturally the sort of deep subjects the main BSG series delved into over four seasons couldn't be captured completely in one sitting. Holding B&C to that standard would be very unreasonable.
The work does deliver where it counts. Characters here aren't two dimensional plot devices, the story isn't a paper thin excuse for action setpieces, and the background behind the First Cylon War itself is also fleshed out.
Fans of what made the BSG series so excellent won't be disappointed in the slightest here.
Some notes; as prior service military Ill address the bigger in-universe discrepancies between BSG Galactica and the vessel as depicted in Blood and Chrome.In B&C the ship is a brand new vessel in a frontline war , and she's outfitted as such. In the 2003 series, the vessel is a relic on the verge of being retired, and is hastily put pack into service during the events of that show.
Whenever a military vessel, aircraft etc is put aside as a static museum generally ALL gun emplacements, missle batteries, launch systems etc are removed . The barrels will be plugged, the oil and hydraulics drained, and the operating gear removed and retired.Thus in the conversion of Galactica to a museum , its not implausible to picture that most of the Viper launching and storage gear in B&C isn't present post-service.
Hope this helps some folks on the fence. I'm glad I sprung for B&C.
As far as the action and the story-line goes I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. I was trying to fly the frackin' Raptor! Every time I thought I knew what was happening there came a twist. When the show is over it will leave you wanting more.
The actual SYFY channel has completely abandoned all things science fiction. A few years ago MGM was taken over by new management and they immediately decided to cancel the following: SG:A, SG:U, the new SG-1 movie (SG: Revolution), and the new SG:A movie (SGA: Extinction).
As long as this current bunch of skin-jobs is in charge we will never get real sci-fi. Instead we get a steady diet of rediculous monster movies with horrible acting and direction. We get fed one ghost hunting show after another. We're up to 5 of those shows now right? Oh and my personal favorite - wresting. Wrestling? What the fraaaaak? I just cant wait to see steroid injected men all greased up in baby oil throwing eachother around for a buck. Yup. That qualifies as sci-fi now folks.
Unfortunately for us "real fans", we will never see a full blown BSG: B&C series. Not while those circle jerkers are in charge...!
I finally got a chance to watch this pilot/movie for the first time and mow im pipping mad! I cant believe America has given up on all things science fiction and let this one go. BSG:B&C is nothing short of spectacular. The story is compelling, with a bit of a callback to G. Baltar of the origanal series. They really know how to perfectly cast the BSG universe with the makers recasting many BSG/Caprica alumni. Us real fans will identify them immediatly. The new faces are top picks as well including the guy playing young (and dumb) Adama.
The picture quality is brutally sharp and crisp on Blu-ray disc. The audio is big and precise, as I expected, especially for those of us with surround sound systems (Definitive Technology 8.2).
The CG effects for Blood & Chrome are only rivaled in the movies! A small gripe for us computer animators - we'll instantly notice the underdeveloped dynamics programing and very quick decay rates on those effects but other than that it's all top grade stuff. I understand that the action-packed nature of the pilot/movie is to give the viewers a glimps of the kind of quality and intensity the show has to offer with following episodes. To bad that's not going to happen.
I will forever be se stunned at how something this amazing will never get off the ground. We have screwed ourselves out of truly brilliant story telling. Again. I was hoping for Bryan Singer's BSG movie to get going but I suspect after he sees this he might give up on it. Blood & Chrome is just that good!
