I really enjoyed it. I agree that the first half was better, but overall I still thought it was fun. Much better than I was expecting given how long it took for this to release (I didn't watch it when it came out on YouTube, I decided to wait for the Blu-ray).
Luke Pasqualino didn't really blow me away or anything, but he wasn't awful, either. He wasn't Bill Adama, but the Bill Adama we know doesn't really exist yet. This is when he's supposed to grow into that man. Keeping that in mind, I liked what they tried to do with the character here. I also liked Coker, and I'm glad he survived.
I highly doubt this will ever go to series, but I would like to see them do a few more movies like this one.
Agreed on pretty much everything. I too waited for he DVD to be released. I think it would be great if they did a couple/few more movies, and beefed up Luke Pasqualino, while changing him from a smartass punk into the Bill Adama we know
Yeah, I think if we were to get any more of this, one priority should be to have Pasqualino put on some muscle mass. Granted, he was only like 21 when he filmed B&C, but both Nico Cortez and Edward James Olmos were pretty brawny guys, so Pasqualino should bulk up a bit.
I really hope the Blu-ray/DVD sales do well enough to convince Syfy to fund another one of these. I'd love to see more of the Cylon War, and I imagine now that the production has done probably most of the legwork (building the digital sets, rendering various ships, etc.) in B&C, a sequel would be cheaper or at least easier to produce.
