The “Blood and Chrome” web series had languished in uncertainty for months, but it’s suddenly upon us and we’re delighted to be able to enjoy new Battlestar Galactica content.
And so far, it’s been a treat. At the point of this episode, we’ve seen the first four webisodes. We discuss the actors, the varying effectiveness of the green screen, and the mix of BSG and Caprica lore.

After a long hiatus, weÂ shake off the rust with a quick episode to recap the BSG news from the past several months. What’s up with Blood & Chrome, or the Bryan Singer movie? And what are Ron Moore and David Eick up to?
Thanks to all who has stuck around in the five years that we’ve been doing this podcast! It’s my sincere hope to start doing a regular podcast again, covering all that’s worth covering in sci-fi and fantasy.
The resurrected Quorum consisted of Brian and Michele.
Caprica will not be getting a second season. We look at some of the reasons that the show failed to attract viewers, ranging from scheduling miscues to its soap opera foundation.
Looking ahead to Blood and Chrome, is the BSG franchise played out?

The Final Five Caprica episodes will air January 4th starting at 6pm on Syfy (US).

This is official: Caprica has been cancelled.
The show is being taken off the schedule and the remaining five episodes will be shown (burned off) sometime in early 2011.
In “Retribution” we learn two things: Caprica has a brief monsoon season, and Clarice takes no prisoners. We bemoan the fact that Barnabus went from badass to blabbering, and that Joseph is reduced to a note-taker.

Caprica returns with “Unvanquished.” Unfortunately it failed more than once to take the necessary step forward, always backing down from what could have been a game-changing event.
We scratch our heads over Clarice and her plan, Geminon’s virtual sets, and the focus on the STO. But the biggest WTF came from the last scene. The show took a turn there, but we’re not sure it was a good one.

Caprica returns for the second half of Season One. Will these ten episodes be a departure from the first ten? Will the fans return, and what level of success does it need for it to be renewed by Syfy? We make a couple predictions and cross our fingers.
The hopeful Quorum consisted of Brian and Jason.
We interview director Michael Nankin about some of the great episodes he’s done on BSG and Caprica. He discusses how he approached filming the deaths of notable characters, as well as bringing new characters and locales to life (Vergis, Barnabus, New Cap City…).
He also provides a behind-the-scenes look at some of the production decisions for several key episodes, including some scenes that didn’t make the final cut.
The interview was done by Brian.
