Frak yeah i have been watching it! :)

Looks interesting and the 8-10 minute episode are annoying. It will be on Syfy in Feb. I will definitely be checking it out along with watching whatever additional 10 min episodes.

I thought it was very interesting having the cylon scream in pain. I would think pain would increase A.I. But its a TV show.
I am fraking sick on the 10 min shows but they are very interesting and action packed with a seemingly good storyline.

Afaik it hasn't been picked up by any channel so for now it's an internet series.

I watched eps 1&2, then I completely forgot to follow up for more. Too much work, not enough BSG. What episode are they up to, now?

Yeah, I'm watching. Not entirely sure what the plan is for this, aside from being able to say they made the show.

It's very much not what was originally planned.

Absolutely yes!

The mini webisodes are kind of annoying, but understandable that they're not posting complete fully edited episodes on YouTube.

Yeah, umm. About that? This is all there is. In February we get the edited-together one-time one-shot 2 hour version, same content.

This was originally planned to be a series, but after Caprica, Syfylis wants nothing to do with any more BSG. It is now a 2 hour special event, being pre-released as 10 minute webisode slices.

I figured there might be a bit more editing, but... /shrug

As far as Caprica, the problem wasn't that it was BSG -- the problem was that it was boring. This looks a lot more interesting.

I'd like to see more stuff like Razor- that was very well done. I won't be watching this offshoot until I can see it all at once :).

Can't watch it on youtube... I get the "this is not available in your country" BS that is racist against me for not being american.... :D (I am joking about considering this racist)

Anyway... watched it elsewhere up to episode 8. It's pretty good. When are the last two bits available?

I'm guessing the scientist lady is going to upgrade these guys to the people looking cylons... that's why all those body parts were lying around...

Yeah that was pretty good... though her being evil wasn't the hardest thing to guess. :/

I watched all of them. Great stuff; I wish Syfy had picked it up and made it a full-blown series.

It had all the great qualities of the first two seasons of Galactica.

Clone, can you expand on what you liked vs what your friend liked? I'm curious if you two saw what I saw and which of you two hated what I hated.

I think I side more with your friend than you- well, I liked both the personal drama arcs as well as the broad, dramatic arcs. I'm aware that I'm quite forgiving of the plot holes I see; tearing apart my entertainment isn't entertainment, even if you can't miss some of the mistakes :).

Oh, I'm much less likely to recommend when there are obvious plot holes; I'm not pretending that they don't exist, I'm just not letting them bother me.

That said, Blood and Chrome was pretty painful; though I do think that it hits the intended mark. Only recommended for fans of the series.
