You know, the Blood and Chrome is what I waiting on since Battlestar
Galactica was rebooted. Had action, more Vipers, fun pilot banter, no
suits and ties, and shooting down classic looking Cylon raiders and
fighting Cylons. Good stuff.

I watched Caprica hoping there would be some of the Cylon/Human war
stuff. There was not. But there were some interesting moments, like
the time they illustrated the pain the Cylon (sometimes shown as the
daughter) when they commanded the Cylon to rip its arm off. Powerful
moment.

I think I got off the new series at the first episode. Now a lot of New
BSG fans say they were hooked by the second or third episode.

Here's the problem, and I say this time after time after time...

If New BSG had been named anything other than Battlestar Galactica I
would have LOVED the series. I am watching Space Above and Beyond
right now... VERY much like the new BSG, and I adore that show.

But for me, I went into the New BSG thinking action, Vipers, fun pilot
banter, fighting Cylons, and .. blasters. I liked the hope the classic
show gave. The dignity humanity had in the face of adversity. How
humanity was priceless against wave after wave of appliances. Great
mythology with a religious overtone, etc.

The New BSG had most of that, just felt like I needed a bath after
watching the mini-series. :)

It amazes me how the classic BSG had such a cool spark and how the new
BSG has this... anti-spark. :P

It is like getting chocolate cake made with salt instead of sugar.
But if you like salt it is perfect.
