Almost a full two years after it went before cameras, Syfy's second attempt to launch a Battlestar Galactica prequel series, Blood & Chrome, finally premiered in November as a series of ten-part webisodes via Machinima.com. The final two episodes went live last Friday, December 7 (you can watch the entire series here) and will be followed by a full-length airing on Syfy in February as well as a standalone DVD edition. And, barring a last-minute reprieve, that will probably be the last we ever hear of Blood & Chrome, as the network has already made it clear that the BSG franchise won't be returning to its airwaves anytime soon and its future as an online property seems dubious at best. Having followed along with the series (and as major BSG fans from back in the day), we've got mixed feeling about its likely demise. Here are three reasons why we'd like Blood & Chrome to continue and three reasons why we're glad it won't.
Don't get us wrong, we're very upset that this landmark science fiction drama is signing off with a two-hour finale this weekend. We've become remarkably attached to these characters, the fine acting, the carefully crafted plots and the brilliant special effects. However, there is an upside to all of it: the show gets to leave on its own terms. While we haven't seen the finale to know how it all turns out and if everything gets resolved, here's why we think it was a good thing that this show knew when to call it quits.
