We watched all of BSG redux, and even though we loathed Caprica thought Blood & Chrome deserved a shot. Plus it’s online. Easily accessible on my computer, but I like to watch TV on my TV. Here’s how.
Buy a Roku.
Install a Plex server on a nearby computer; in our case our living-room mainframe Mac Pro.
Fight your way through the creaky, irritating Plex channel selector to find and install the YouTube channel.
Install the Plex channel on your Roku.
Configure Plex on Roku to know about the nearby Plex server.
Tune in Plex on Roku, select the YouTube channel.
Navigate to the “Search videos” pane in Roku/Plex/YouTube with the idiotic Roku remote.
Type in “Blood and Chrome” character-by-character; reminded me of booting a 16-bit computer in the eighties.
Now you’re off to the races; the HDTV audio and video are just fine. But there has to be an easier way.
I think Google TV is supposed to be about doing this right. Wish I could use it in Canada.
Spoiler: The two “episodes” are really microEpisodes or nanoEpisodes or something, maybe a half-hour of TV between the two of them. But, I have to say, Blood and Chrome does show promise.
