Re: Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome - Grading & Discussion

With Episodes 5&6 (is there any reason at all they are pretending those are two seperate episodes at this point?) it's still very action focused and mostly good at pulling that end off (although some of the shots of them outside in the blizzard did not feel convincing). And I guess the cyborg snake thing is an early example of the kind of research that would eventually make humanoid cylons possible.... but also just fits with the action mode of this series, as with next week's preview showing them avoiding a Cylon. Cylons were creatures with ambiguous sometimes incoherent motives in BSG, the embodiment of a teenage girl's frustrations in Caprica, and now they are a relentless, faceless nemesis for our heroes.
