Update: ‘Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome’ to be a Web Series

In a move that has the internet aghast yet unsurprised, Syfy has banished Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome from its colony in the cable universe and relegated it to being a web series. This comes on the heels of a trailer that has set the nerdverse ablaze with enough excitement to buy 2 Blu-ray sets of season 1 of this never-to-air TV series. This may be due to the lack of ratings success of Caprica, but come on, what does Syfy expect? Caprica was about people building robots who are sad ‘n’ stuff. Blood and Chrome is about Vipers, Cylons, spaceships, explosions, and, well, Blood and Chrome. That’s why we watched Battlestar in the first place! Part of me thinks that there may be an unintentional method to this madness. Maybe this will be a show that will allow us to make a clean break from the bonds of the cable TV schedule, but I can’t expect that kind of intellect from people who put wrestling on a Science Fiction channel.
