We are loving the webisodes of Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome. It’s fun, if mildly frustrating, to watch them in serialized form like they did back in the ol’ days in the movie theaters, but we admit we’re also looking forward to getting that Blu-ray in February!
Please note that the final episode will be going live on December 7, not November 30 as we were told originally. Also note that, if you’re seeing this in time, showrunner David Eick will reportedly be live commenting on the Machinima Prime video at 1pm Pacific time today.
Otherwise, feel free to watch episodes 3 and 4 right here and now, below the press release (and please note that the episodes 3 and 4 are presented as one continuous episode).

Today, Machinima, Inc. and Universal Cable Productions (UCP) rolled out brand new episodes of the much anticipated Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, a spinoff of the blockbuster Battlestar Galactica series franchise, exclusively on Machinima’s premium channel, Machinima Prime (YouTube.com/MachinimaPrime)
The new episodes 3 and 4 are presented as one linear episodic experience. The link and episode synopses can be found below.
Reeling from the discovery of the ruins of Battlestar Archeron, Adama and Coker’s small Raptor is nearly outmatched when they engage with three enemy Raiders. More secrets are revealed when the crew makes a shocking discovery deep in Cylon space.
Adama and Coker prepare for a dangerous mission above the Cylon occupied planet Djerba. Coker reunites with an old friend (Sebastian Spence) and reveals startling news.
New episodes will roll out every Friday exclusively on Machinima Prime (YouTube.com/MachinimaPrime), leading up to the gripping finale on its new date, December 7.
This highly anticipated chapter in the Battlestar Galactica saga takes place in the midst of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, the sentient robotic Cylons, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, gifted fighter pilot, William Adama (Luke Pasqualino, The Borgias), finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and hungry for action, Adama quickly finds himself at odds with his co-pilot, the battle-weary officer Coker (Ben Cotton, Alcatraz). With only 47 days left in his tour of duty, Coker desires an end to battle as much as Adama craves its onset. Lili Bordán (Silent Witness)also stars.
