The Status, Location, and Condition of "Blood & Chrome" is Anyone's Guess

Although the "Blood & Chrome" pilot movie has been yet another one of those "Galactica in Name Only" gimmick projects of the SyFy Channel (right behind "GINO" and "Caprica") that no one in the mass market domain ever wanted or asked for (just like "GINO" and "Caprica"), it's still noteworthy to analyze the outrageousness of the ever spiraling genesis and mutation of this project.

Originally conceived as a web series, it went from that to a 2-hour pilot movie and back again to a web series. Its status right now is anyone's guess, but the fact remains that no mass market audience anywhere in the world has rolled out the red carpet waiting for "Blood & Chrome's" arrival, if it is ever seen at all.

I see "Blood & Chrome" as nothing more than an unfortunate, left over remnant of an ill-conceived and severely flawed conception of the "Battlestar Galactica" property compliments and courtesy of Ronald D. Moore and the SyFy Channel. The best for all concerned would be (including mass market audiences not looking forward to "Blood & Chrome") for this 2-hour pilot movie to remain in limbo never to be seen by anyone. In addition to never having a grasp on what "Battlestar Galactica" really is, Ronald D. Moore and SyFy Channel never had what it takes to appeal in general to mass market audiences. It takes original and inspired thinking, concepts for television series that are original and genuinely good ideas, and the ability to execute those ideas in vibrant and compelling manners that attract mass masket audiences. SyFy Channel and Ronald D. Moore have always lacked all of the above.

So I suggest to all of those concerned to keep "Blood & Chrome" in limbo forever, because nobody wants to see it. Nobody wants to see more of the same already sampled in "GINO" and "Caprica."
