This is old news by now, but I didn't get to write about it last week when I was off.
SyFy has ordered a second "Battlestar Galactica" prequel/backdoor pilot called "Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome," which will start shooting early next year.
"B&G" will focus on Bill Adama, here a young pilot assigned to the Galactica during the Cylon War. Of course, we currently see the Adama character as a 13-year-old on the other "BSG" prequel, "Caprica."
In the "BSG" TV movie "Razor," we saw Adama as a young pilot played by actor Nico Cortez. The news story didn't say where "Razor" fit in in relation to "B&G's" timeline. It also said while Cortez would get consideration for the role on "B&G," it hasn't confirmed any actors yet.
For the "BSG" fans not satisfied with "Caprica," this could be some good news since "B&G" would likely be more action-oriented than "Caprica" is. For the rest of us who enjoy it, it's likely analagous to having "Deep Space 9" and "Voyager" on at the same time.
WEDNESDAY'S BEST BETS: Baseball's big event, Game 1 of the World Series, begins tonight as the San Francisco Giants host the Texas Rangers (Fox, 7:30 p.m.) While their may not be a lot of Giants/Rangers fans out there, remember, if you don't watch, it sends the message that you want to see more Yankees games. No pressure or anything, though.
ABC's sitcoms are all new, as is "The Whole Truth" (ABC, 10 p.m.) CBS has new episodes of "Survivor," "Criminal Minds" and "The Defenders" from 8-11 p.m.
NBC has a new "Undercovers" at 8 p.m., while the CW airs "Hellcats" at 9 p.m.
On cable, "Terriers" (FX, 10 p.m.) is brand new.
Finally, BBC America is beginning a new reality series "I'd Do Anything," in which aspiring actors try out for a role on Andrew Lloyd-Webber's new production of "Oliver," beginning at 9 p.m.
