Audience Reviews for Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome

The latest offering in the Battlestar Galactica saga is a William Adama origin story that tells of his first mission flying as a pilot for the colonial fleet. The reason the reboot of Battlestar Galactica worked so well was because of its adult themes, sophisticated characterisation and involving story arcs, performed by a cast of very talented actors. What we have in Blood & Chrome is none of these things. It's essentially a rather amateurish version of Top Gun in space featuring Luke Pasqualino (who is more Wesley Crusher than William Adama) earnestly "doing the right thing" in front of an unconvincing green screen. Even the cylons don't look like cylons, instead resembling a cross between a terminator and a transformer. I can only assume that this substandard, humourless clone of a mediocre episode of Stargate SG-1 was intended to hook a younger (and stupider) audience than the original series because aside from some of the spaceships, it has nothing at all in common with it.
