Friday, March 26, 2010: Caprica

It seems like this show just started, but it is already ending the first half of the season. The other nine episodes won't air until sometime in the fall. And while it got off to a bit of a slow start, I've stuck by this show (mostly out of Battlestar Galactica loyalty) and found that it's pretty good. While I tend to like my sci-fi to take place in outer space, or involve monsters and lots of shooting, this twisted drama with computer-generated realities, drugged up religious cult members, and robots with feelings has actually won me over. Especially since some of the characters might look human, but do really twisted and monstrous things to each other. Kinda like real humans!

Jacob has done a very thorough job of recapping this show in great detail and analyzing all of the minutia of the personalities on it. I just know that once I got past the whole "it's not BSG" mentality and just started watching it as a show about a really screwed up family (the robot daughter almost killed her dad last week!) that happens to have some cool sci-fi elements in it and exists in the same realm as the show that I really loved, I was down with it and I've almost adjusted to this slower pace. And tonight's finale looks like it has some action, as poor Zoe tries to make a break for it.

The winter finale airs tonight at 9 PM tonight on SyFy. And you can watch the episodes now, if you need to catch up.
