Gritty Sci-Fi never goes wrong in my book.

I didn't know this was still happening. Thought it had been reduced to a series of measly webisodes. (I was interested in it before that happened)

At first it was indeed intended to be webisodes, but I guess the quality of it was high enough to warrant SyFy wanting to actually air it as a two-hour movie early next year, and then hit Blu-Ray/DVD as an "unrated" version.

I'm glad we get a little more Galactica, since it seems that the Bryan Singer helmed Galactica project has taken the big dump once and for all.

Curiosity would make me want to check it out. Even if it never is going to series. I just picked up the complete BSG Blu ray box set as well. Haven't gone back through it all yet though.

And is it continuing afterward in webisode form? Or are they basically abandoning it entirely after airing the pilot?

Why, what did you hear? I assumed it was dead when they announced that Singer was directing the next X-Men. But I haven't actually heard anything (nor was I expecting to at this point).

I got the set two years ago, but still haven't had time to watch most of it. And for that reason haven't sold my S1-3 DVD sets yet.

I marathoned S4 in December 2010 for my Dad who was visiting, and I could have sworn there was bad lip-synch in a couple of places. Dad swore I was imagining it, but that's his reaction whenever ANY (perceived) quality control discrepancy that annoys the hell out of me. I could have sworn this. But I still haven't had time to re-watch and confirm. Like I said it was just 'in places.' It didn't seem to be a "this episode, this episode, that episode" kind of anomaly.

The only other place (I thought) I caught it was somewhere in S2's 'Downloaded' (or whichever is the over-hyped S2 ep that's told from Caprica Six's point of view). Because it became apparent Dad had somehow skipped that one when borrowing my older DVD sets. And again, it seemed like the lip-synch was off at one point.

I never noticed a problem with S1, which is the only other season I had gotten all the way through on BluRay. Although I've been meaning to re-watch it too before selling my DVDs, just in case. Because I'm really curious.

The show was filmed in HD, right? So why would there be a discrepancy between the HD and SD versions? Did they only assemble the HD video elements in time for the BluRay, instead of post-producing in HD and down-converting for broadcast?

Hi, Sam,

As far as I know, for B&C, it's just the seven 12 minute episodes. I don't know if there are any plans for anything else beyond Blood and Chrome. Would be nice though. I loves me some Galactica, from either the Larson or the Moore productions.

As for the Galactica big screen project, I think it's pretty much dead, and a couple of friends of mine (hardcore Classic Galactica fans) who seem to have some inside information are saying that those sources are pretty much saying it's dead. Bryan Singer always says: "Yes, we're getting ready to do Galactica" and then another more high profile project comes along and he gets signed onto it.

Hi, Kevin,

Sadly, that report is about a year old, and in conjunction with the recent events, I think it's safe to say that a big screen Galactica project is dead and gone. Much to my dismay, but that does seem to be the case.

Firefly was an awesome series. I have the DVD set, but am thinking of getting the Blu-Ray set, and giving my DVD's to my roomie. And yes, it's visuals were extremely good....too big for the small screen....and sadly, that's what killed the visual impact of Serenity on the big screen for me. It just didn't have that leap of quality, visually, like Star Trek The Motion Picture did.

That said, Serenity is a good story, but unfortunately, was done a bit niche. As openly accessible as it tried to be for newcomers, it was really a movie for the fans, The Browncoats.
