Like "Craprica" and "GINO" before it, what a bunch of failed and bargain basement television executives working for the failed SyFy Channel claims is "Battlestar Galactica" because NBC-Universal is unwilling to replace these idiots with higher salaried television executives with the talent to manage "Battlestar Galactica" properly, gets ready to spoon feed the gullible with yet another installment of "Non-Galactica - What The NBC-U Corporate Bean Counters Are Comfortable With Calling Battlestar Galactica".....because imagination and inspired thinking is beyond their intellectual and cerebral reach.
"Blood & Chrome"....like the corporation that spanwed it (NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel) is a severely dysfunctional, broken, and troubled television production. And not simply because it took NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel 90,000 years to get this "Turd Festival" on the air.
"Blood & Chrome" symbolically represents everything that is wrong with this corporation...
1. Its inability to turn the "Battlestar Galactica" property into a "Global, Mainstream, and Commercial Sensation Tent Pole Property" because NBC-Universal is unwilling to pay higher salaries to attract much more talented people to manage the SyFy Channel and the "Battlestar Galactica" property. So, NBC-Universal always settles for the middling groping at the entire Science Fiction genre and the "Battlestar Galactica" property from the bargain basement salaried likes of Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern.
2. Typically, because NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel is still at the steering wheel, "Blood & Chrome" is not "Battlestar Galactica." Instead, because the talent and budget is not there to create the credible illusion of an alternate reality via costumes, settings, vehicles, and gadgets that we have never seen before..."Blood & Chrome" will instead ground its miniscule viewership in the miserable reality that this is "just yet another annoying television production" of the SyFy Channel either shot on location in Vancouver, British Columbia or "Green Screened to Death" by laughable visual effects technicians with a dubious education in this field of expertise. What will be the other tip offs that this ("Blood & Chrome") is "just another SyFy Channel television production" and not a credible, alternate reality as was the case with "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series?
1. Cast members wearing present day military uniforms. The same sorts of military uniforms the families of present day military personnel see their loved ones wearing.
2. Cast members wearing present day, three-piece business suits. The same sorts of business suits one sees everyday while strolling down a busy street in New York or San Francisco in the summer time during lunch hour.
3. All of the cast members being current graduates of "The Bonnie Hammer School of Low Budget Terrible Acting"...Where you don't give a shit about any of the characters these actors are playing because their acting sucks so bad, even if these characters are mauled to death (on screen) by an "8-Tentacled Slime Drenched Turtle Shark." After the massacre is over with, you're cheering the "8-Tentacled Slime Drenched Turtle Shark" for getting rid of the most annoying cast members in the production so that you don't have to watch and listen to their "B.S." anymore. Even if the creature was unconvincingly rendered in low budget CGI (the calling card of the SyFy Channel), you're still cheering the creature.
For reasons that would truly mystify the philosophers of the ages, the SyFy Channel has always tried to pass off its "kitschy" programming and staggering lack of talent in producing, scriptwriting, directing, and conceiving television productions as being "cute"....."hip"......and worthy of devoted adulation from the television viewing public. This of course, has never happened. Their unspoken slogan being....
"We SUCK at we do, but we want you to love us anyway."
With any luck, there will be more than enough of the "Nongullible" to stay clear of "Blood & Chrome."
