I’ve been watching Blood & Chrome, and on the whole I’ve enjoyed it. I have a few quibbles about seeing some of the ships from the Exodus period — Valkyrie and the Berzerk, for instance; I would have assumed these newer vessels from the big deal they made about Galactica‘s age in the miniseries and the assumption that there would have been some advance in ship design from the war to the Cylon attacks. Okay, fanboy moment over!
