"Blood & Chrome" is Missing From The SyFy Channel's Fall Schedule. Is There a God After All?
There are many things in life fundamentally incompatible with one another.
1. Peanut butter and spinach
2. Cheeze whiz and chocolate
3. Potato chips and strawberries
4. SyFy Channel and "Battlestar Galactica"
The general public has learned through experience that "no news is good news" when the two fundamentally incompatible entities of the ages....SyFy Channel and "Battlestar Galactica".....fail to deliver on an earlier annouced television movie, or any other project for that matter.
Conspicuously absent from the SyFy Channel's fall schedule is the "Blood & Chrome" pilot movie / stand alone movie...thingy....that SyFy Channel at an earlier date was hell bent determined to ram into existence despite the overwhelming commercial failures of both "GINO" and "Caprica."
Are we finally reaching the tail end of these stupid ass projects SyFy Channel rabidly rams into existence once they find out how much the general public hates them? No one in the general public domain ever asked for "Blood & Chrome" to exist. I don't recall the SyFy Channel ever receiving a permission slip from me or anyone else to make "Blood & Chrome."
In much broader terms, making a television movie ("Blood & Chrome") based upon two prior failures ("GINO", "Caprica") and applications of the same failed...shaky format is not good business sense. Of course, historically speaking...Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern have never been known for possessing and applying good business sense under any circumstance. And the intended "Blood & Chrome" movie is no exception.
This is probably (and unfortunately) another example of something being....too good to be true. The "Blood & Chrome" movie may very well slime its way on to the SyFy Channel schedule anywhere from January 2012 to June 2012. In the meantime, we can at least enjoy the fact that it won't be broadcast anytime this year.
