I was late to the party when it came to the new Battlestar Galactica TV series. I had heard good things but missed too many episodes and never gave it a chance. Finally, I was able to catch up on Netflix, and I was hooked. When the series ended, I wanted more, so I tried out the prequel series Caprica. It was OK, but didn't grab me the same way as BSG and at any rate it only lasted a single season. Finally, another pilot was produced that was much more like what I was hoping for - Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome. It featured a young Adama learning his way and used a lot of CGI imagery. The pilot was first shown in installments online and then as a special on the SyFy Network. For reasons I cannot fathom, it was not picked up to become a full series, which is a real shame because I thought that everyone involved did a great job with it. If you are a BSG fan and have not seen it, it is well worth seeking out.
