Review of the new Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome

I have been a fan of Battlestar Galactica ever since I saw the original series in reruns as a kid.  Although the acting, writing, or special effects were never great.  The story was always strong and the universe was exciting to explore.  The re-imagined BSG and the prequel series Caprica were, in my opinion, some of the best television made in the last decade.

Unfortunately Blood and Chrome reminds me more of the original series than the newer version.  The acting is rather poor, the writing is cliche, and the special effects look like something that was made for the Xbox.  Still, the story is exciting and I am surprisingly happy to get to visit the BSG universe once again.  So far the series has improved with every episode so there is hope it might end on a high note.

I highly recommend all BSG fans to check the series out.  The first episode is only 12 minuets long and you should know if you like it pretty quickly.  If you were not a fan of BSG already then there isn't much here for you and should check out a much better and more interesting series H+.  Both are currently available on Youtube and embedded below for your enjoyment.
