In the latter case it appears that the Six is concerned that Athena might be distracted by her emotions; in the former, Head Six associates conscience with egregious sentimentality, just as in Superman 2 where Ursa speculates that Supes protects the humans because he sees them as pets.
Didn't head six turn out to be an angel?...

Yes, Baltar's head Six and Caprica Six's Head Baltar both showed up in that final scene

Yes. And more to the point, she turned out to be neither who nor what she initially told Baltar she was.

(Anyway, the word "angel" can be interpreted broadly. In its widest sense it basically means "messenger".)

They are the Joker and the Thief.

Baltar the Joker:

There must be some way out of here
Said the joker to the thief
There's too much confusion
I can't get no relief
Businessmen, they drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
None of them along the line
Know what any of it is worth

Six the Thief:

No reason to get excited
The thief, he kindly spoke
There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I, we've been through that
And this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now
The hour is getting late

Ain't that the truth. At her first UK convention appearance a few years back, Michelle Forbes was speaking about the pilot she did, the name of which escapes me, that leaked online after the studio dropped it, and got a huge response and fans asking for it to be picked up - she said they were furious.

And a quick wiki hunt later - Global Frequency.

And yeah, the Dredd film was awesome and not that expensive. As hideous as it was, Battleship has made more cash. There ain't no justice...

Re: Has the Blood & Chrome miniseries aired yet?

I came to the BSG reboot later. I never watched it when it was on, and ended up watching the entire series over last summer.

I don't understand at all why more Sci Fi isn't produced. I go to cons and see people STARVING for good Sci Fi, and yet a channel (that used to be) called Sci-Fi would rather produce crappy reality TV.

Sci-fi on TV is expensive and has a small audience. This is a poor recipe for success (read: profit.)

Re: Has the Blood & Chrome miniseries aired yet?

SyFy has been so hush-hush about what's going on with this thing that nothing would surprise me. It's not like they've been publicizing anything else about it.

Actually it looks like it might be made available online this month, with a DVD/BluRay closer to Christmas.

If so, good news, I've been hoping they sank so much into it, they couldn't afford not to put it out on DVD/BluRay

Re: Has the Blood & Chrome miniseries aired yet?

They should hold it till next spring and then air it as a special, leading in to their Defiance series premiere. NBC did that with Mockingbird Lane, and it apparently boosted Grimm's ratings.

They may be able to make some money with a DVD release, but then it's gone. Using the pilot as a PR boost to an ongoing series is an investment in the future. Of course that assumes Defiance appeals to the nuBSG audience...

Well it doesn't seem like Syfy have any interest in making a Blood and Chrome series (the window to do so has probably long since passed anyway). Might as well try to recoup some of the costs they put into it and wash their hands of it at he same time instead of just leaving it on some shelf collecting dust.
