Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome: Blood on the Tracks

<i>Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome</i>: Blood on the Tracks

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.

TWoP 10: Reasons Why <I>Battlestar Galactica</I> Is Bowing Out at the Right Time

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.

BOMG! Battlestar Galactica‘s Greatest Moments

BOMG! <i>Battlestar Galactica</i>‘s Greatest Moments

Here at TWOP, we love us some Battlestar Galactica. Yes, it's dark; yes, it's depressing; yes, it's a little convoluted, but it's still one of the greatest shows on our magic picture box every week. And while the joy of it is in the journey -- from Caprica to New Caprica to Earth -- the show still manages to plant little landmines along the roadway, and when they go off, they will frak you the frak up. Resident BSG megafan Angel put together a list of the show's greatest "BOMG" moments, the ones that made us pause our DVRs for a second to let our brains cool down. Check out the gallery here!

TWoP 10: Best TV Politicians

TWoP 10: Best TV Politicians

Hail to the Chief! Well, the Vice Chief at least. HBO's Veep kicks off this Sunday and we can't wait to see Julia Louis-Dreyfus ascend to the second highest office in the land, not just because this is Elaine Benes we're talking about, but also due to the fact that it's sadly still all too rare to see a female politician elected to televised office. As Veep's first season unspools, we fully expect Louis-Dreyfus's VP Selina Meyer to become one of our favorite TV politicians. In the meantime, here's are our current picks for the best political characters to hold elected office on TV. (That latter requirement is why you won't find our favorite Deputy Parks Director and current Pawnee city council candidate, Leslie Knope, on this list. If she beats Bobby Newport in the election, though, she'll instantly jump to the number one spot.)

How Up All Night Is Like Real Life: TV Cheaters Never Prosper

How <i>Up All Night</i> Is Like Real Life: TV Cheaters Never Prosper

Ever since Up All Night's pilot, my wife and I have wondered whether the writers have installed a camera in our place to gather material -- there's at least one moment every episode where the show captures something that happens in our life as perpetually tired parents of two young kids.

<I>Forbidden Science</I> Experiments: What if Our Fave Shows Were on Cinemax?

You know, we've been occasionally tuning in to the new late-night Cinemax series Forbidden Science -- for research purposes, of course -- and we gotta say, it's got a real Fringe vibe to it. On the show, 4Ever Innovations is a company engaged in a lot of cutting-edge science -- clones, memory implants, robotics -- all of which somehow guarantee that its users will be having sex with somebody during the course of an episode. (Think Massive Dynamic from Fringe, but with intentions as erotic as their name.) And it got us thinking... what if other popular shows were adapted for late-night Cinemax viewing? We've eroticized some of our favorites to see how they stack up.

Welcome to the news, post-Oscars. We know, we know -- your worldview has shifted. It's hard to see Hugh Jackman the same way anymore. Give it time. It will pass. We recommend you watch all three X-Men films in quick succession. Do not watch Swordfish. But before you do that, here is the news. And before you ask, no, the musical is not back. But The Witches of Eastwick is, and Battlestar Galactica might be, in a bad way.
