The SyFy channel is proposing to make Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome a web series...you have all been waiting patiently...MORE than patiently waiting for BSG's return to screen, but I really don't think in that particular format.
As a matter of fact you HAVE been waiting for it to return as a regularly televised production on TELEVISION.
You know what a webisode is? You know what it's really good for?
Let me answer the second question first...it's good as a compliment to a television show as was the case with Battlestar Galactica and with True Blood.
But as a substitute for Television show?
I think the original suggestion was 9 or 10 episodes clocking in at 10 minutes apiece all greenscreened.
Is THAT what you have been waiting for?
I really truly doubt it!
There is a time when everyone must make a stand...and now is the time when you are needed the most!
If something is worth having, then it is worth fighting for.
Make your voices be heard...and I will tell you a very direct way to make your voices be heard.
Send two lettters every Saturday (one each to the people/addresses listed below)...that's it.
Tell them (in a polite respectful way) that YOU want to see Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome on TELEVISION, not some ten minute blurb on the internet!
You can write as long a letter as you want...or as short...doesn't matter...you can make copies that you can simply put into an envelope...WHATEVER works best for you!
For the price of two stamps a week, YOU can make a difference.
On each envelope, write: BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: BLOOD & CHROME, TELEVISED NOT WEBISODED!
Rest assured that many more people are going to be doing the exact same thing...so you tell me what happens when a thousand people write a thousand letters times two?
Let's go higher...3000? 4000? Every week?
What message to you think that will send to the network?
What do you think it will say about WHAT the fans WANT?
The message will be crystal clear...you are the boss, the networks are there to put on what you want to see, not the other way around!
Success & Keep the Faith!
So say we all!
