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.

To Rome With Love: Woody Allen Remembers His Roman Holiday

<i>To Rome With Love</i>: Woody Allen Remembers His Roman Holiday

If you ever want to see a group of jaded movie journalists get truly starstruck, stick them in a room with a filmmaking legend like New York's own Woody Allen. The writer/director/actor/nerd icon was front and center at a recent press conference for his latest film To Rome With Love, and despite being flanked by some of the movie's big-name stars (among them Alec Baldwin, Penélope Cruz and Ellen Page) all of our eyes -- and most of our questions -- were directed at him. Here's what Allen had to say about working in Italy's lovely capital, acting on camera and why he rarely makes movies in his native city anymore:

Andromeda Strain Popular Among Youthful Drunken Patriots

<I>Andromeda Strain</I> Popular Among Youthful Drunken Patriots

Variety is reporting that A&E's Memorial Day premiere of The Andromeda Strain drew in a whopping 4.8 million viewers, making it the highest rated cable movie or miniseries so far this year. Yes, the year is still young, but the ass-kicker? 2.7 million of them were in the coveted 25-54 age demographic, which is a record for the network. Pretty impressive, considering it was Memorial Day and all those viewers were drunk and full of hot dogs. So why do intoxicated pork fans love The Andromeda Strain so much? We have a few theories.

Five Reasons Why This Was the Worst Episode of Glee Ever

Five Reasons Why This Was the Worst Episode of <I>Glee</i> Ever

I think I've actually been enjoying Glee this season. Season 4 has had its not-terrible moments, thanks to a change of pace in the fake drama school in New York, a handful of particularly well-crafted musical numbers, the open shaming of Finn Hudson (despite being unfortunately paired with Cory Monteith's real-life personal matters) and the overall lack of Will Schuester. Regrettably, "Shooting Star" was the worst piece of crap this show has produced in a very long time... if not ever, so much so that it warrants this addendum blog post to the forthcoming recap. Here's why:

Papa HBO Don't Preach

Papa HBO Don't Preach

If you're a fan of non-superhero comic books and you're not particularly squeamish, you've probably read and enjoyed writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon's tour de force series, Preacher. Their tale of small-town preacher Jesse Custer, the love of his life Tulip and his vampire best friend Cassidy was less about Custer's super-ability to make anyone do what he says (the byproduct of being possessed by an angel/demon half-breed) and even less about his mission to track down an on-the-run God. It was more about the lengths two friends and two lovers will go to in order to protect each other... as well as about trying to come up with the nastiest visuals comicdom had ever seen, from the man who had sex with meat to the boy who had "a face like an arse." Sounds like it would have made a great HBO series, right? Apparently, wrong.
