Holy Frak, David Eick!!!!!!!

SyFy has greenlit a two hour pilot “Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome”! ADAMA RETURNS (and the crowd goes wild). David Eick, one of the genius’ behind the re-imagined BSG will return for the prequel following young fighter pilot Ensign William Adama during the 10th year of the first Cylon war. Sci-Fi God Ron Moore will not be involved, but I have high hopes for this new addition to the BSG Empire anyway. If you have not experienced the amazingness that is “Battlestar Galactica”, do yourself a favor and check it out on Netflix Streaming Instantly. It’s the arguably the best science fiction show EVER!!!!!! But don’t let that convert you. I didn’t like sci-fi until I begrudgingly watched the first couple of episodes. This is a show about people, about creating a new society, and about contemplating what it means to be human. The performances are terrific, the action is super fun, the drama that will make you cry….oh, and there is a ridiculously hot chick. The heart and soul of the show is Captain William Adama portrayed by Edward James Almos. It will be difficult to cast the younger version of such a beloved character. I know they already did with Esai Morales in “Caprica”, a prequel of another time in Adama’s life, but I wasn’t sold. That series just didn’t grab me. I think I watched the first two or three episodes, but it was much slower and a different feel from the re-imagined version. “Blood & Chrome” will hopefully be closer to action packed original in this re-imagined empire of sci-fi greatness. I will be anxiously awaiting the premiere……
