The two latest installments of the Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome prequel series have arrived (you can also catch up on Episodes 3 and 4).  Blood and Chrome follows the pre-BSG exploits of Commander William Adama and takes places during the first Cylon war.  The series picks up ten years into the war effort, where the young and cocksure Adama (Luke Pasqualino), call-sign Husker, gets thrown into a covert op during his first “milk run.”  Joining him is his surly and war-weary co-pilot Coker (Ben Cotton) as well as a Dr. Kelly (Lili Bordan), who draws the others into her work on a secret mission.  Hit the jump to watch latest episodes and read a brief spoiler-free summary of the action.

Episodes 5 and 6 have really raised the bar, and I’ll admit I’m really starting to get invested.  The first slice this week drops us right back into the center of battle (which is a little disconcerting, gathering ones bearings among all of the shaky cams, whip pans and explosions) but also includes a classic Battlestar moment that champions the greater good.  Meanwhile, our ragtag trio find themselves potentially stranded on a remote and hostile planet that (naturally) includes a few twists.

Once Episode 6 gets going, the series finally quiets back down and starts injecting some of the original Battlestar‘s humor, and starts to give a better sense of the main characters (Coker has the worst luck, for a start).  There’s also the introduction of a potential animal / machine hybrid which frankly sounds like the setup a Syfy original movie (Mechanical Alligators … In Space!).  Bottom line: things are really starting to get good.
