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

I really enjoyed 3 & 4 as well. My only quibble is the use of previous BSG actors. The guy who played Kirby was one of the guys on Pegasus, and the Lt. Kelly actor was there too. Otherwise, I'm really liking this. And I love seeing the "old-school" raiders too. No shots of any cylon pilots yet though; I suppose they could even borrow a shot or two from Razor for that if needed.

i suspect they're saving that for a big reveal later.

i think i liked parts 3 & 4 better than 1 & 2, felt like it's gelling a little more. not looking forward to that cylon snake though...

Cylon Basestars do look a little different. It looks like a cross between the old and new Basestars, I can see some kind of outline of the nubsg basestar on it's saucer.

Was there another character named Ezra in BSG before?

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

They're reusing actors from BSG so much they may as well have had Eddie Olmos play the young Bill Adama


But apart from those distractions, good stuff. Can't wait for next week's installment/s
(also glad they're doing it in basically 5 parts now rather than 10)

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

They are really overdoing it with the recycling of BSG cast members. I know the Vancouver actor pool is limited but come on bounds of reason. Kelly, Narcho, Hadrian, Gage, and the inspector guy from Caprica... have I missed any?

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

Wow, what the frakkin, frakkity frakballs is SyFy thinking of sitting on this for so long? This just gets better and better. They damn well better make more of these.





I have never noticed (minor) actors from show to show unless pointed out, so I guess that's a small blessing that I'm not recognizing all these guys.




Something that's occurred to me about the mission in Razor being Adama's "first" mission:

Excellent. Dr. Beka Kelly is gorgeous and I see JILL TEED is in it as the commander. She was in SG-1 and BSG. She's great!!

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

The story is good and I'm enjoying it greatly. The ghost fleet was good but the throwaway name of 'Valkyrie' is starting to head towards Trek territory (IE using the same names over and over makes the universe a lot smaller; homages are nice but they could've picked a DIFFERENT name...).

They really should be careful about what shots they use in trailers, which give away plot points and ruin tension. Mainly dealing with the cliffhanger of ep4 and seeing...



The FX are excellent. Hutzel and his team should be congratulated.

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

Trek series recycle a lot of same actors and that's a much bigger pool than Vancouver. I'm kind of at a loss what exactly people getting worked up about. They're actors playing fictional characters. If someone could explain I'd be deeply grateful

With the exception of Brian Markinson who was a regular in Caprica, I don't have a problem with reusing actors as long as the Character is very different.

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

Honestly the only actor I've recognized so far is Brian Markinson, and that's only because he has a role on Continuum (yet another sci-fi series shot in Vancouver, but one of the few also set in Vancouver). This probably just reflects that it's been over a year since I've watched anything BSG related.

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

The re-using of actors seems a minor trifle to me - especially considering the rest has been so entertaining. Yep, it's still paper-thin fluff ... but it's been a BLAST so far. And I'm still shaking my head as to why this wasn't given more of a chance. I'm sure (at least I hope) the execs had plenty of data as to why moving forward would be unprofitable. But I see this as a (would-be) series with lots of potential for growing an audience.

Oh, and continuing to love Bear's work on this, too.

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?
