The toasters are coming back!! and we’re hoping that that frakkers at SyFy deliver this time..and from all reports thus far it looks like they will.

Filming has now begun on Blood and Chrome which is all about ..the blood of the humans and the chrome of the cylons mashing it up in a mano – a – toaster battle to the death.

Here’s the official press release:


2-Hour Pilot Chronicles Young William Adama’s Adventures in First Cylon War

Lili Bordan Joins Luke Pasqualino and Ben Cotton in the Cast

Production has begun in Vancouver on Syfy’s highly anticipated 2-hour pilot, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, the all-new chapter in the Battlestar Galactica saga. Universal Cable Productions will produce the event with Syfy utilizing cutting edge CGI and virtual technology.

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, the sentient robotic Cylons, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a young, talented fighter pilot, William Adama (Luke Pasqualino), finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful Battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and in pursuit of the intense action that the Cylon war promises, Adama quickly find himself at odds with Coker (Ben Cotton), the battle-weary officer to whom he reports. With 47 days left in his tour of duty, Coker desires an end to battle just as much as Adama craves the start of it. Though they clash at first, the two men forge an unlikely bond when a routine mission turns dangerous and becomes a pivotal one for the desperate fleet.

Joining Pasqualino and Cotton in the cast is Lili Bordan, who will play Dr. Beka Kelly, a Ph.D. who worked for Graystone Industries that created the Cylon robots. Currently assigned to a secret military mission, Beka and Adama quickly establish a rapport.

From the award-winning producers of Battlestar Galactica, this new action-packed chapter of the BSG canon was written by Michael Taylor form a story by David Eick, Taylor and Bradley Thompson & David Weddle and directed by Jonas Pate. David Eick, Jonas Pate and Michael Taylor will serve as executive producers.

Caprica may have been canceled but the final episodes have been avail in Canada and we’ve now had the chance to watch some of ’em. The entire season 1.5 dvd is out in December.

Episode 13 is one such final episode…

We finally see the Cylons used for the purpose they were intended – to kill humans.

Sam Adama is the first human to use the Cylons that way and he gets the best greeting a Battlestar Galactica fan could ask for.

Task Completed




Battlestar Galactica Series Finale set for March 20th February 16, 2009

The last episode of BSG is a two hour special set to air on March 20th at 9 pm.

If you’re a REAL fan the show will actually start at 8 pm with a replay of the March 13th episode – so you could get 3 hrs in for a full FINALE.

What will happen? I don’t know for sure but here’s my speculation.

1) BSG 75 – the old Battlestar Galactica itself will be destroyed…all those hole in her will just peel things apart.

2) We will finally learn what Kara Thrace is- which is the first human/cylon hybrid conceived by Ellen and Daniel (the #7) and/or Saul. So Kara is their baby.

3) Adama will go down with his ship and Roslyn will be at his side.

4) There will be one less GREAT FRAKKIN SHOW TO WATCH and all of us will miss the show forever after.


(oh and hey if you’ve missed episode – they won’t all be out on DVD for months but if you haven’t seen the new episodes you can pick them up on Amazon now too Battlestar Galactica season 5 aka season 4.5

Battlestar Galactica Season 5 Episode 4 – RIP Felix Gaeta – Blood on the Scales February 7, 2009

Posted by showmescifi in scifi.
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Battlestar Galactica Season 5 Episode 4 (SciFi calls this Season 4 episode 14) “Blood on the Scales” was one of the best – if not THE BEST Battlestar Galactica episodes EVER.

We don’t know who will get shot, who will live and who will die. Who is in charge? Will they jump? Will they not jump?

From beginning till the end this episode kept us guessing on all those questions.

At first we were certain Adama, Tigh or Rosyln would get toasted, but that didn’t happen.

Zarek issueing the order to kill the whole quarom – WOW…

Roslyn’s argument to fight no matter what…

and the people all those people on Galactica who tried to follow their conscience whether that meant following Gaeta or Adama.

Felix Gaeta is truly the great tragic hero of this show. Unlike Zarek he is not evil. Unlike Baltar he didn’t betray his people to the Cylons .

Gaeta from beginning till the end really always tried to do the right thing, whether it was helping the resistance on New Caprica, plotting the right jump point or overthrowing Adama because he didn’t want they Cylons to run the fleet.

Gaeta wasn’t evil he wasn’t thirsty for power – only for justice.

The final scenes of this episode were awesome – Gaeta telling Baltar of his youth and then finally the pain subsiding in his lost leg.

While it was inevitable that Gaeta would die once Adama retook control, it was also a sad ending to a noble and brave character. It’s unfortunate that we didn’t get to hear Gaeta sing again before dying and this site for one will miss him.

Rest in Peace Felix Gaeta. Rest in peace.

Battlestar Galactica Caprica Coming to DVD on April 21 February 5, 2009

Forget about waiting to watch the Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica on TV – you’ll be able to get it earlier on DVD. SciFi announced today that Caprica will be avail on April 21st which at least six months earlier than you’ll see it on TV.


Now from what we’ve seen of the show so far – this will likely be a frakkin disaster. The first trailer was a joke. But hey maybe there is alot more to the show – and maybe it can be the same magnificent piece of SciFi Entertainment that Battlestar Galactica is all about.

Battlestar Galactica Season 5 episode 3 – The Oath January 31, 2009

Third episode of what we think should be Season 5 (SciFi calls it Season 4 episode 13) was one awesome episode.

Called the Oath – clearly both sides think they’re upholding their Oath to the Colonial Fleet. The dept of Felix Gaeta’s mutiny is astounding he’s got the majority of Galactica (but not his boyfriend?!) on board.

Sure he didn’t shoot Adama, but Gaeta is a nice guy — or at least he was until he ordered the outgoing Raptor destroyed.

The Oath
Someone is gonna die there, will it be the Raptor team? or will it Be Tight? Or will Admiral Adama be toasted???

My bet is the raptor with all hands lost.

It’s sad that after everything that’s happened humans are turning against humans again. Innocent people are getting killed and all for what? Just because they don’t trust the Cylons?? That is a big issue and hey if i was on Galactica, personally I’d probably side with Gaeta too.

After the setup of the last episode – this episode is only part of the payoff.. i suspect that this mutiny will carry us forward right till the final episode.

Watch The Oath

Battlestar Galactica Season 5 Episode 2 – Gaeta’s Mutiny January 24, 2009

Second episode of what we’re calling Season 5 (scifi channel is calling it season 4 episode 11) – and we’ve got the making of (yet another) full scale human mutiny.

We’ve had human mutiny before in this show – but this time will be a little different.

Now we’ve got Cylon’s fighting Cylons, Humans fighting humans and you need a score card to figure who is one what side.

And what’s the deal with Calli and Tyrol’s baby?!!! woops sorry Chief you’re not the dad! Hot Dog is the dad and calli was a slut – too bad for you.

What happened to Baltar!!! For the first few seasons he was one of our favorite characters – now he just plain sucks. He doesn’t have visions of Six anymore (and she doesn’t have visions of him) he doesn’t even talk to six. That’s just stoopid and negates three plus years of plot development.

One thing is for sure though – with the (yet another) mutiny on tap we’re in for a whole lot more action in the final 8 episodes of Battlestar Galactica. No doubt Ellen Tigh will be pissed too when she comes back to find Saul with Six and a new cylon baby.

Battlestar Galactica Season 5 Episode 1 – Dee is Dead. Ellen Tigh is the Fifth January 17, 2009

First new episode since June of 2008 and it was FRAKIN awesome –

Technically season 4 episode 11 (but after six months off gimme a break it’s Season  5 episode 1).

We did not see Dee’s death – that was soo sudden.

We’ve been saying for the past two years that Starbuck is a Cylon. So now we’ll say it again – Starbuck is a Cylon – isn’t she?

But what’s the deal with the rest of Earth?

Were they all really Cylons? Is Ellen Tigh really the fifth? It makes no sense.

The Cylons claimed they tested all the recovered bones on Earth and they all came up Cylon – does that mean that Earth was itself a planet full of cylons and there are actually Billions of Cylon models?

Battlestar Galactica Caprica gets Ordered by Sci Fi Channel December 3, 2008

Posted by showmescifi in scifi.
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Ok so maybe we were a little hasty in calling Caprica dead the other week.

Sci Fi channel has now ordered 20 hours of the Battlestar Galactica prequel. Originally it was supposed to have a pilot this month but now it looks like that pilot will show up sometime in 2009 with the full series likely to debut in 2010.

The pilot trailer looks like frakking crap to me – but hey with 20 hours now booked – maybe they can build this up and actually make this as cool as BSG itself.

Set 50 years before “Battlestar Galactica,” “Caprica” follows two rival families — the Graystones and the Adamas — as they grow, compete, and thrive in the vibrant world of the 12 Colonies, a society recognizably close to our own.  Enmeshed in the burgeoning technology of artificial intelligence and robotics that will eventually lead to the creation of the Cylons, the two houses go toe-to-toe blending action with corporate conspiracy and sexual politics. “Caprica” will deliver all of the passion, intrigue, political backbiting and family conflict in television’s first science fiction family saga. As the series begins, a startling development is about to occur — the creation of the first cybernetic life-form node or “Cylon” — the ability to marry artificial intelligence with mechanical bodies. Joseph Adama (Morales)  — father of future “Battlestar” commander William Adama (Najafi) — a renowned civil liberties lawyer, becomes an opponent of the experiments undertaken by the Graystones (Stoltz), owners of a large computer corporation that is spearheading the development of these living robots: the Cylons.

Battlestar Galactica Caprica on Hold till 2009 (or later) November 27, 2008

It’s December almost and we were supposed to see the Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica this month. (We saw the trailer back in July.)

But we won’t and that sucks.

According to TV Guide : “Though Sci Fi once planned to air Caprica in December, it’s now on hold, pending the final episodes of Battlestar Galactica. It definitely won’t see the light of day until after the BSG series finale … but also maybe not at all.”

A show about two families?

Making human looking cylons before they make the toasters?

What the frak is going on??

‘My real name isn’t Adams it’s Adama’??

This doesn’t look good my friends…check out the teaser trailer for yourselves…

Add one more item to the pre-season 4 Battlestar Galactica hype toaster..

With toaster being the operative word ..as in build your own Toaster and take over the…er..gain the respect and admiration of your friends and family…yeahh that’s it.

“Make” a Cylon: Use whatever you like: blinking lights for eyes, metal armor as a costume, toasters… anything to show the world that you’re a Cylon maker. The only caveat is that it has to be something physical (no Photoshop/art entries). Your Cylon can be of the humanoid or robotic variety, real or abstract, or anything else you can think of.

All you need to enter is post the image up in the http://www.flickr.com/groups/make/pool/ group and tag it “dvicemakecylon” . Sounds neat and we’ll let you know when we’ve got a few from ShowMeSciFi.com up in the mix.

Lots of activity lately in Battlestar Galactica promo land…one of the most interesting by far is one we just came across on Canada’s Space Network (sort of like SciFi only lamer usually).

They’ve got a SciFi media show call Hypaspace and they did a really great insider look at the upcoming Season 4 with some really solid cast interviews.

Katee Sackhoff declares that she’s not a cylon (though we all know she is) and apparently a whole lot of ppl die this season…

Check it out..
