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.


Besides Adama and Roslin in the old SyFy Battlestar was any of the other cast members known when the series started? That was one of the things I liked about the series is that I did not keep picturing the cast in other roles. I mean when Roslin was introduced on Battlestar, I immediately saw her as that lady from Dances with Wolves. While the other characters I did not make that relationship and was able to identify with their Battlestar character better.

I ramble.

I had a moment of "Where have I seen her before" with Roslin, but the fact that the movie came out almost 23 years ago (the series started 14 years after 'Dances') made it pretty easy to ignore.

Lucy Lawless, Kate Vernon, Michelle Forbes and Dean Stockwell were pretty big names before BSG. Anyone who watched British TV would have recognized Jamie Bamber and James Callis.

A pretty good interview with David Eick suggests Blood & Chrome still has a chance to become a TV series:

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.

Like Bonanza, after 14 years. No real ending.

Just saw B&C--meh, ok but nothing special. I did like that crazy-looking weird rev organo-Cylon goofbag at the end, very cool looking!
