Ouch indeed! Hmmm...I don't know, but I think this is the end of the franchise now for a very long time.

At least unitl Bryan singer's movie reboot gets underway. Or is that even still happening? Haven't heard anything on that front for a while.

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

He seems to go in fits and starts with his BSG project. Every so once in a while he seems to be in between projects, looking for something new to do and the BSG thing comes up again. He makes several announcements and drops hints at interviews and then --poof!-- Something else comes along to catch his attention and BSG goes back on the shelf for another handful of years until the next time he gets bored. Wasn't it the Munsters reboot before (that later got axed?) Really? The Munsters?? Ugh...

I'm not really holding my breath with him anymore, although it would likely have been awesome. If it does eventually happen, I hope DeSanto gets involved again. I get the impression he was a balancing element for Singer in their original 2000 attempt and kept him relatively grounded and dedicated to the project.

It looks like some more people have watched since yesterday.

Episode 1: 2,546,816
Episode 2: 823,600
Episode 3/4: 848,427
Episode 5/6: 822,538
Episode 7/8: 446,614
Episode 9/10: 431,803

Still, a genuine downward trend.
Update, because, why not?

Episode 1: 2,586,591
Episode 2: 837,651
Episode 3/4: 864,080
Episode 5/6: 842,102
Episode 7/8: 474,886
Episode 9/10: 472,644

I wonder how the studio values views of web content? Are early viewers more valuable than those who wait to watch these (as some are obviously doing)?

The telling thing will be DVD (and hopefully blu-ray) sales.

As long as the price is reasonable, I'll buy it.

But that can't be accurate. Clearly everyone watches it via subscription and does so in order as it's released. We know this to be true, so there's obviously some kind of mistake here since episodes 3-4 and 5-6 have more viewers than 2.

Maybe more people re-watch 3/4 and 5/6 than 2?

Or just are more likely to stumble across them. I've seen 3/4 in my 'Recommended Videos' panel, it could be someone's going around youtube and clicks on them en route.

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

I actually liked this pilot series. I think it is well done considering its only a pilot and I think this has got to be one of the best pilot episodes I have seen for any series. However I kinda did not like the too young Adama, he kinda looks too girly and the cocky attitude. Well any ways this is a huge contrast to the real Adama we all know and love. But overall I think this is a huge missed opportunity for the big boy corporations.

I don't subscribe to any YouTube channel. I just watched each installment as it went live, that particular day.

I waited until they were all posted and watched the whole thing in one run yesterday. Not bad. I wouldn't mind more of these.

I'm not sure if this is sarcasm -- it is hard to tell online -- but those are YouTube's numbers. I doubt they've been cooked. (Also, since all the segments except for the first two were released as a pair, it's possible some viewers simply overlooked episode #2).

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

I was curious about the sarcasm/seriousness of that post as well. I watched the shows on my XBox just by searching for "blood chrome" and clicked "play". I don't have a single subscription stored anywhere.

^ I did the same, but downloaded them from youtube as they became available, then watched them on my computer.
