tricia helfer has said she has some involvement in B&C and we've seen concept artwork of a half human-half cylon being, so think in terms of that.

Yeah I've been listening to my BSG sdtrks again since B&C came out. I hope Bear can release this music....

And I think the show is fine. There hasnt been too much character development but it is a pilot pretty much...

HAd this gone to series I would have loved to have Esai Morales, Sasha Roiz and other Caprica actors play guest roles. There might have been a ton of development of young William given his background. And what happened to Daniel Graystone?
May or may not have become the first hybrid from Razor. So many questions left unanswered.

It's possible that the colonials were secretly cloning?

They were in a war against baddies that can make fully trained seasoned soldiers in a few ours.

They have to keep up some how unless it becomes acceptable to suddenly start throwing 12 year olds into the breech?

When it is revealed during our last 7 minute webisode that all of Dupod's characters are cylons the internet will explode.

So he was actually infiltrating Destiny and Corbulo Academy in order to destroy them from the inside?

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

I'm really enjoying the series so far, it's pretty good. As for the B&C soundtrack, from the Twitter account of the Bear himself.....

RT @KevDowney91 "When will the Blood & Chrome soundtrack be released???" / No date yet. But plans are afoot.

That depends on your definition of Cylon.

Did the colonial Cylons have half assed skinjobs before those Gods showed up with their cook book?

Or were their other kobolian Cylons mucking about trying to make ends meet before the final five arrived?

And I happily obliged to drag the comment to its lowest denominator. I'd say I was sorry ... but, well ... you know ...

And I'm thrilled that B&C's soundtrack might get released. Bear's work has been one of (the many) highlights of the first four installments.

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

I'm curious, why does the Osiris have a chrome finish on it, when it doesn't look like any of the other ships do, including the basestar? I mean, this is *shiny* chrome, reminiscent of the original series' Cylons.

It seems to be some kind of stealth coating. They were in the outerspace version of a U-Boat.

dialogue even specifically references the stealth capability of the osiris, but it's sort of hard to hear.

something along the lines of... even with the stealth tech, the cylons will pick them up eventually.

(obviously not verbatim.)

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

Yeah and on the inside shots it's all redlights, tight crowed rooms, grungy uniforms and bad air conditioning.
Very U-Boat

^Yeah. In the comments section for episodes 3 and 4 David Eick said they were going for a "Das Boot" look and feel.
