With Episodes 5&6 (is there any reason at all they are pretending those are two seperate episodes at this point?).
I'm pretty sure folks have it backwards: it was originally designed as a web series, then they considered doing it as a "movie of the week", then just recently went back to the webseries.

They're running them two at a time because Universal wanted the damn DVD out, so they crammed the webseries schedule to rebuild the fan base.

They're still in two parts because that's what Machinima was given and they don't want to spend the time and money re-editing them together.

Anyways, I had been leery of how the giant ice planet critters would be handled, given the specific avoidance of alien lifeforms in BSG but learning that they're Cylon guinea pigs makes that an easier sell.

And the cliched crazed tech sergeant and his boomstick, somehow being part of the BSG makes tropes like that go down so much easier.

They really really really really need to get cracking on a few more movies with these assets.
