So after the huge success of Battlestar Galactica on Syfy the creators wanted to craft some spin-offs/sequels. One of those sequels, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, seemed to have potential and the other one, titled Caprica seemed, to have less. Well to be honest both series could have been great, but Caprica fizzled in the ratings and creatively, so the future of Blood and Chrome was bleak. For a while it looked like it was still coming to the Syfy network then everything went all hush hush when it was canned.
Now Blood and Chrome is finally out online and you can watch the first two episodes are right here below!
