Blood and Chrome was decent enough, though I thought the actor playing Adama a bit on the weak side, even for a young officer, and his "interaction" with the peace-seeking diplomat a bit stereotyped and trite although it did give her a chance to utter a great line about regret. The all-green screen CGI was better than in other Syfy shows and we got more a sense of depth in the far shots. Who knows, combining B&C with Caprica might have been a great show.
