Blood and Chrome Parts 5 and 6

The latest two parts of Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome.

This series (well, the latest installment of the pilot film, to be more accurate) is very well done; exciting, dark, and quite well-made. The main drawback continues to be the BSG team's love of that damn shaking camera technique, which is either affectation run amok or a stylistic attempt to cover up computer effects they don't want us to look at too closely.

Other than that, great stuff.

This particular Battlestar died for me with that horrible ending to the first series. For me, it buried any desire to see anything with this version of Battlestar Galactica on it. They should never have left it the way they did and making Starbuck into a ghost or whatever, just cemented any lack of desire to see anything more--I mean, who cares about this mini-series if its all going to end that crapill--right?

Honestly, it's time either for a reboot, alternative universe or better yet pass the torch to someone else for an all new version of Battlestar--this one got ruined and all the series that try to go back earlier and earlier are pretty much doomed to failure--go far enough back and you just have all the BBC Documentaries in the Planet Earth series.
