DOA! What is going on here? Really?

Wasn't Battlestar the most successful show SyFy had (lets forget about Caprica, that was just so not what we wanted)? They greenlit 3 Stargate series, and have no faith in Battlestar? So what's the reason? I would assume it either cost way too much to produce, there were production issues, Blood and Chrome is really terrible, or their waiting to see how much interest there actually is by being cavalier about the show.


Seriously, If Blood and Chrome was good and got picked up as a series I would start watching shows on this network again.

I guess they want you to watch Ghost Hunters, Megacrap vs. Dinoturd, WWE, and etc. and this is what Syfy means. **** you Syfy idiots!

Sadly, I completely agree with this. I have had so little reason to watch syfy despite being a lifelong fan of Sci Fi. I can't pretend to know how the business works, but for the love of god, put something on other than wrestling. Save your dinofish vs. octomom budget. Put something on that people want to see! BSG had to be the most popular series on this channel by 100 to 1 margin. There's a reason for that. Figure it out.

Give me a Blade Runner serial. Partner up with a game company - give me a Mass Effect series or a Guild Wars series. Give me something other than complete trash. I have more luck on friggin' Fox these days than you. Fox! Come on! Seriously??

It wouldn't take a huge budget. Just give us something we want for a change.

I saw it coming as soon as they announced it. Syfy doesn't like intelligent viewers all that much, they prefer the brain dead viewer who watches those so-called reality shows like 90% of the junk they air now.

I wonder if there's some financial turmoil going on in syffy's offices that we don't know about that may have led to their latest decision regarding Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome.

I don't care if they decide to make a second movie (conditional on sales of the first), turn it into digital shorts, or into little animated gifs, I want those jump drives now.

Put Adama in the air already.

WHY would you KILL the highest raked SyFy Show in the history of your Channel?


Don't blame Caprica.. it was good but it was more like "Dawson's Creek" with Robots...

We "the fans" can save it if we show them What we are...

Loyal to Battlestar!!


SO SAY WE ALL!!!

thanks, pscard, for posting the trailer.

syfrak doesn't deserve that show. send it to SPACE or something. You can make almost anything look good with the Led Zepplin screech music and ultra-quick cuts, but it did look somewhat cool.

syfrak doesn't deserve that show. I don't think they care. Since BSG aired and brought them fame, a whole new market base has flooded in there and they have a snug bug in a rug with the programming there now. AND IT DON'T INCLUDE PEOPLE LIKE US.

That's because their advertisers prefer the brain dead zombies over people who have the capability to think. Much easier to sell useless garbage to people whose brains are switched off.

I'm guessing it was the cost of production more than anything else. :(

This is so annoying.....they really think people want all their lame wresting and badly made giant insect movies? Why cancel the one show that has a guaranteed audience....been waiting for years for this and then they throw out the teaser trailer and then wisk it away. That's just cruel. Dont' think I'll be surfing the syfy channel anymore. It's pointless.

Technically, the articles say that B&C is again a web series and not a TV series. So it's technically not cancelled. But this is a bad move, which will mean that Syfy will inevitable announce that the entire series is cancelled.
