Once again, Fridays will bring us new Battlestar Galactica! How long has it been since we could say that? Since March 2009.
It’s been a long wait, and I’m hoping not too long. As anyone who reads this blog may have noticed, we haven’t been as active recently. We are without question one of the largest BSG fan clubs in the world, and yet we’ve barely hung on through this long break. We’ve been holding out for the one more morsel of our favourite show…and it’s suddenly here.
In a few days we will have a new dose of our favourite epic drama, albeit a much smaller dose, and in a different medium. On Friday, November 9th, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome will make its debut online. On Youtube, exclusively on a channel called Machinima Prime, previously known mostly for video game content.
The trailer looks good, but with all the fast cuts it’s hard to tell. I see lots of action, but not a lot of character. To succeed, I believe it will need both.
I have hope. But it is mixed with a dose of caution brought on by a long wait and the bad taste from “the Plan” that still lingers when I think about it.
Glad Fridays are back to being BSG days. So Say We All!
