Video showing the construction of a robot waste can that intercepts tossed objects. (No English)

Probably right. They was talk of making a web series at first. Still might be on the table. And I agree, Caprica was getting better. It seems like they cancel shows too soon nowdays, instead of giving them time to find their place.

I watched those two shows too and thought Caprica was getting better and then they cancelled it. I wasn't too impressed with the new BSG series - but I did watch it and found it interesting.

They will probably make it into a series and then cancel it on us once it gets good. : )

Comment by Tony Carroll on July 31, 2012 at 5:41pm

Yes, I plan on it. I watched the original BSG, and the reimagined series. Also Caprica, which I didn't think was especially good, but it had promise. This one looks much more promising. From what I read, it's gonna be a movie. If it gets good enough ratings, will probably become a series. We'll just have to wait and see.

Tony I'm definitely going to watch Blood and Chrome on SyFy. Thanks for the trailer - it looks awesome. Just my thing!

Will you be watching the show too?

I love Snape! Thanks so much Tony!

Comment by Tony Carroll on July 31, 2012 at 1:21pm

Some people count six Snapes, but I counted 'Severn', LOL. :)

' Blood and Chrome '. About the first Human/Cylon war. The notice I received said this October on SyFy. This was the trailer. What'cha think?
