    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...

    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.)

    Wouldn't there be some hype?

    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

    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...

    But Defiance isn't in the same world is it?

    Finally some good news.

    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.

    Mockingbird Lane and Grimm aren't connected, either. The audiences overlap, so one is a good promotional device for the other.

    It's not an either-or thing. They could make PR use of the pilot next spring and also release a DVD.

    Regarding using it with Defiance, is Defiance now a reality? I don't recall anything yet, aside from they were considering making a Pilot, and then silence

    They've been running promos for it during Alphas, saying that the show will be coming out in April, I think.

    Ah...Well then, I guess we write that off to me not watching Live TV (Or SyFy shows). This'll be cool if it lasts, I wanted something (Especially Space Opera) to bring me back to watching SyFy Channel
