During the run of Caprica the SyFy Channel started to map out Blood and Chrome...at the time they were considering 9 or 10 webisodes at about 10 minutes apiece filmed on greenscreen.
Doesn't sound very satisfying does it?
Then came the end of Caprica...and new thinking was put forward to instead make this...first a movie pilot...and of course as the formula goes then on to a series format.
Well, news has come that they are considering switching back to the original concept of having those 10 minute webisodes, which I for one think is a terrible idea...webisodes are merely meant to enhance a regulary televised show, not BE the show!

Really bad idea.
But there is something you can do about it...YOU can make your opinions on this be known in a big way.
Starting today, I want to ask you all to send two...2...count 'em....two letters every Saturday to a couple of gentlemen who have a LOT to do with this show.

We are talking two stamps a week on this is all!
On the front of the envelope (very important) write: BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: BLOOD AND CHROME TELEVISED NOT WEBISODED!
Be nice, be polite....but be to the point.
Photocopy duplicate letters if you like to send...but just say one thing & one thing only...that YOU want to see Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome on TELEVISION where it's meant to be.
Actual episodes...not 10 minute extened soundbites.
You are the consumer...make no mistake, YOU tell the networks what to air by your viewing habits, not the other way around...and this gives you the opportunity to say it directly.
Snail mail is much more effective in a case like this...email can be deleted with the touch of a finger...you can't delete bags & bags of mail coming in every day.
At last count we have 828 members on the site with well over 500 on the CDF...lemme do some math....oh that's 2600 pieces of mal in one day! (well, approxmiately!).
That means if you all can take the time and write that letter (hey it can be two lines...doesn't matter) pop it in the mail...they will get nearly 11.000 pieces of mail over the coming month.
Please believe we WILL be making more people aware of this...so I promise you a lot more mail than that will be on the way!
Draw the line & speak your mind!
So say we all!
