What would the Old Man say if he could see what the Old Man was like before he became the Old Man? If he’s anything like me, he was whispering “frak yes” under his breath for all twelve minutes of the premiere episode of Blood and Chrome on Machinima Prime. The prequel to 2004’s seriously excellent Battlestar Galactica, Blood and Chrome takes us back to the shitstorm that started it all – the First Cylon War – and puts us squarely in the shoes of Ensign William Adama, the man who would go on to command Galactica herself. But, before all that, he was a hot-headed recruit, fresh out of the academy and finally getting to see all of that is like biting into a juicy mango (read: it’s frakkin’ awesome).
The series will run as a 10 episode mini-series on Machinima followed by a 2 hour movie on SyFy in early 2013. Honestly, you had us at “more BSG.” What do you think of Blood and Chrome? Quemment below and let us know!
