A lot of fans for years were dying to know how "All Along the Watchtower" and the cyclical universe concept was going to ultimately pay off. That's a huge indictment of the producers to allow such sloppiness of continuity and meaningless clue/content of major tease elements to thrash around loose like that and never really pay off or even get adequately explained in any way. Sounds like some paychecks going up some noses.

It was a slap in the face from Ronald D. Moore is what it was. I boycott anything with his name on it now.

That's not possible. I think the way BSG ended is the absolute worst ending to a series that I've ever seen. Someone said Last Resort's ending was a cop out. They clearly didn't watch BSG or they'd know what a cop out ending really is.


"Lost" was the worst ending in the history of TV...

At least there were endings. I hate it when you get involved in a TV series and they pull the plug on it with no ending to a continuing story line.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

Is this going to re-air? I forgot to set the recording and remembered halfway through the repeat the next day. It's still in the search results, but with no upcoming airings.

That sucks. I liked Blood and Chrome. Perhaps they are dumping all their resources into Defiance.

Save your money and set your dvr to auto "blood and chrome".
It was not groundbreaking and eventually a network will run it.
Patience is your friend.

Defiance sounds like Falling Skies meets V meets Revolution. Blah.

I struggled to get into Caprica but eventually stuck it out. How would you rate it vs. Caprica?

IMHO it's better than Caprica but it's essentially the same as BSG. It has the same style and dark story telling BSG had. The only problem I had with it is, it seemed like the whole thing was shot in front of a green screen.

I found myself wondering if that's why SyFy passed on Blood and Chrome as a series ... It's pretty well done but ultimately feels like more of the same with a different, lesser known cast.
