It’s interesting to see a different broadcasting approach being taken. Ten minute chunks (or 20 minute chunks as the last few eps have been shared in couples) might be ideal for the commute or the second screen habits we are picking up.
In this household, BSG was never watched on live TV. It was consumed first through boxsets and later with iTunes downloads. Caprica was a different matter, but let’s just say that we weren’t prepared to wait a year for the series to appear on TV and legitimate download. What’s more, I wanted to take part in those second screen conversations roughly simultaneously. (Bad us, but we did pick up the boxset (much) later.)
Right now, after a strong start of over 2 million for episode 1, subsequent episodes of Blood & Chrome have to date clocked up around 600,000 views. This doesn’t seem particularly high, but let’s check in again before the complete broadcast in 2013.
So say we all…
