Blood & Gourd Details and Artwork: "It's Devil's Night in Olympia, Wa - and out at Henderson Farms, the festivities are reaching a crescendo. Young and old have gathered to pick their own pumpkin, drink hot apple cider, and partake in the usual pumpkin farm fare. However, something has awakened from deep within the fertile soil. After years of abuse and humiliation, the pumpkins… are ready to pick us. You can beg! You can plead! You can scream! But these Hell's lanterns are lit only with the burning desire to watch you die."

The Vatican Exorcisms DVD
The modern British gangster movies are strange beasts, and I admit I do have a weakness for them. With acting that is often questionable and stories that tend to be on the sillier side of crime thrillers they have a charm that can even survive a Danny Dyer starring role (that was a joke, don’t bite my head off). The Smoke, to be fair, only takes a gentle stroll into the British gangster movie style, though it does feature some actors that you’ve seen in them before, and more bizarrely more than its fair share of soap stars too.
When city lawyer Brad Walker (Matt Di’Angelo) finds himself fired and dumped by his girlfriend it’s fair
The Panel: Richard Hatch (Capt. Apollo, Tom Zarek), Edward James Olmos (Admiral William Adama), Michael Nankin (director), Dr. Kevin Grazier (consultant), Michael Angeli (producer/writer), Kevin Murphy (producer/writer), Michael Taylor, Paul Leonard (producer), Lili Bordán (Dr. Becca Kelly)
Footage screened: Nothing was shown during the panel, but as fans were entering the room a series of retrospective interviews were broadcast on two large screens. The edit was new, but the footage drew heavily from the BSG 30th Anniversary.
Snap judgement: Battlestar may have been gone for quite some time, but hardcore fans still
Thankfully, star of the original and re-imagined BSG Richard Hatch, scientific advisor Kevin Grazier, and Producer Michael Taylor soldiered on even without Ellen Tigh and Lili Bordan (who arrived about halfway through — just in time for the favorite episode question). Right after a special encore showing of the 30th Anniversary tribute, Hatch and crew went straight to audience questions which ran the gamut from the nostalgic to the technical.
Below, check out a few of the things we learned from the panel.
The first 200 copies sold are signed by Bear McCreary.
You can get the CD at LALALandRecords.com.
All the BSG soundtracks, including the one from the Caprica pilot, are also available.
Last word on the Caprica soundtrack is that it is now coming in May, not April as previously announced. No exact date yet, so stay tuned.
And in case anyone else was wondering:
Everyone is asking me if #BloodAndChrome score will be released digitally. Short answer: probably. But not in the next couple months.

La-la Land Records Re-engages In The Cylon Wars With Two New Soundtracks Composed By Bear McCreary Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome on March 12th
Caprica: Original Television Soundtrack in April
La-La Land Records announces the release of two new soundtracks Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome on March 12th and Caprica: Original Television Soundtrack in April. Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, Battlestar Galactica) composed the music for both series.
“In scoring the Battlestar Galactica prequels Caprica and Blood & Chrome, I returned to the unique combination of world and orchestral sounds that defined my previous score,” McCreary described. “But, both prequels had their own distinct approach. Caprica was interlaced with delicate chamber orchestra textures, solo harp and other-worldly source songs. Blood & Chrome is energized by heavy distorted-synthesizers and searing electric guitar performances. Listeners will hear, however, that all three series have a common musical DNA.”
Originally proposed as the premise for a gaming system, the plot for “Blood & Chrome” emerged as the potential pilot for a new “Galactica” program (thankfully, SyFy opted against the idea). Going in the polar opposite direction of Eick’s superbly crafted, woefully short-lived prequel series, “Caprica,” “B&C” favors jittery handheld camerawork and derivative action set-pieces over provocative ideas and compelling characters. All that unites the two shows is their irritating overuse of the fearsome F-word, “frak,” which is perhaps the least amusing running gag in television history.
Thanks to Universal Studios Home Entertainment, we are awarding five lucky readers the new Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome Blu-ray and DVD combo that traces the first mission of William Adama (Luke Pasqualino) after being assigned to the Galactica.
