    An "exclusive" clip:

    I am such a little boy sometimes, I watched this 3 times in a row.

    i'm not getting worked up either. in fact, it's sad that after being a die hard fan of BSG and sticking through and having faith in caprica despite it's failings, my reaction to this was ambivalence.

    it's clear they're just burning this off, but they're doing it in the most obnoxious way possible. they've waffled so much on this and did absolutely no marketing, it's a good bet that this in fact garbage.

    that said, being the die hard fan that i am, i'll watch it. and i'll buy the soundtrack when (if) it comes out too.

    Craigs Ensler at Syfy posted on reddit that it is important that youtube record massive views for this.

    I'm not excited about webisodes...but I'll take what I can get. Aaron Douglas said he saw the script (before it was shot) and said it was all manner of awesome.

    That clip looks nice. Looking forward to this (and particularly hoping it won't be region locked.)

    Why? If this is a youtube sensation will it mean that Blood and Chrome will become an actual TV show? I'd thought they were just burning this material off.

    I'll assume to demonstrate to Syfy that there is still a vibrant fanbase. Why? I dont know...I'm just repeating what Craig said.

    Like some of you, I'm going to wait until the whole thing is available before I watch. I don't want to see it in 10-minute chunks over several weeks.

    Hmmm, Can't help but nitpick that cockpit lid comingoff as though it had met some kind of wind resistance. Poor.

    i've been hard on B&C, but this new trailer intrigues me. i like the inclusion of footage from caprica, as well as footage that could have been from caprica, but is clearly new.

    there's also an article showcasing the CGI used in the series here.

    still think it looks dumb, but a little less dumb.

    It makes me want to watch Caprica again.

    And yes I know it's not going to be as wonderful as BSG, but I'm still very happy to have some more of this universe.

    Great clip, but what was that annoying 'Adama is gonna get arrested' bullshit on the end of it?

    Sign me up as someone who will watch this as it's released online - provided it continues to hold my interest. If the episodes start to drag, then I'll hold off until the DVD release. Otherwise, I'm perfectly content to see it in installments.

    Well that wasn't so bad. Way way way too many lens flares though, but that might be covering up for the greenscreen sets.
    Also isn't that guy commanding the Galactica the detective who died in Caprica? He seemed to know a lot about the Adamas.

    I liked the first part.

    This version of the Galactica is remarkably more sophisticated; the CIC is impressive.

    If this predates BSG then how can the Galactica be more sophisticated?

    It's at time before the Cylon's starting using networked computers against them? It was a full out war going on for 10 years and by nBSGs time the ship was pretty much on it's way out. Dumping it's ammo, gods know what else.
