Caprica cancelled. Make way for Blood and Chrome.

E--terminate

Battlestar Galactica ended in March, 2009, and the prequel-spin-off Caprica has never had BSGs cultural prominence. (Or its ratings.) Now, it looks like Syfy is hitting the reset button on the Prequel Option: This time, more space violence! According to a press release from Syfy, the network has just greenlit a new two-hour pilot for Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, set ten years into the first Cylon war (which would place it about four decades before BSG). The pilot centers on a young William Adama, played by Edward James Olmos in BSG and an adorably annoying child actor in Caprica. Right now, its still just a TV movie that might become a series but lets be fair, if this thing is half as good as Caprica, its going to get at least one season.

2. Too bad. I actually liked Caprica (OK, so I was the only one) . . .
But I'll admit that it didn't have the mass appeal that's required to support a pretty expensive production.

I'll give the new series a look, too, because I'm that kind of optimist.

3. Not the only one--I liked it too.
Although I did find it moving a little slow for my tastes. But it showed some definite potential. Especially with the idea of the Cylon units being sent to Tauron to do some fighting.

Ah well...

4. I liked Caprica. I want it back.
World Wrestling is not Sci Fi. Neither is that stupid cooking show.
