Blood and Chrome continues to impress
This week’s third and fourth episode of Battlestar Galactica Blood and Chrome were just as good as last week’s episodes and continued to give the audience the very best science fiction experience possible. Not only was the action top notch, but we see that Husker is indeed a pilot who isn’t afraid to take risks and really is as good as he thinks he is!
But more importantly, we also saw the human side to this Frakking war in the news a long thought missing viper pilot hears when he is told by Adama’s co-pilot that he has a son back home he has never met before. In the midst of all the pain, suffering, duty and fighting, there is still hope it would seem.
But in this latest installment of Blood and Chrome we see a ghost fleet poised to attack the Cylons, which seems to give the Colonials hope to embark on a secret mission that could hold the fate of the human war effort in the balance. Of course however, a Cylon base ship emerges at the last minute to throw a daggit wrench into the mix and so any hope of slipping in and out unnoticed by the humans fades away.
With the mission at risk, the Colonial commander gives what she must know to be a death sentence of a command by ordering an attack on the Cylon Base ship. This it would seem is the only way for the mission to succeed. In order for Adama and his precious human cargo to reach the winter planet rendezvous safely, it would seem an entire ship and crew must make the ultimate sacrifice. This show just keeps the action and human drama coming at you like a viper hitting its after burners! I frakking love this show! So Say we all!
