The science-fiction epic Caprica is building to its explosive mid-season finale, and the cast turned out in force at Syfy's Upfront party in New York to talk to the press about what little they could without giving the show's secrets away. Esai Morales ("Joseph Adama"), Alessandra Torresani ("Zoe"), Magda Apanowicz ("Lacy") and Battlestar Galactica and Caprica co-creators Ronald D. Moore and David Eick were able to shed a dim light on the mid-season finale as well as the second half of Season 1, and while nobody could tell us if it would return for a second season, everyone seemed eager to continue what many agree is one of the best shows on television. Read on for some torturous teasers and reflections on the show's greatness.
It has only been a month since Battlestar Galactica's finale left us dazed and confused, so I was looking forward to watching the DVD (available today) of the much anticipated Caprica prequel. It seemed like the perfect way to fill the void in my life since BSG went off the air. Unfortunately, this pilot (which is scheduled to air in some form or another in early 2010 on SyFy) wasn't everything I could have hoped for and more. Instead it was dull... and actually pretty boring. I'm not planning on writing off the show based on this one episode, which isn't even in its final state, but I had grander expectations for this based on the fact that the BSG mini-series was so mind-blowingly awesome. It deals with some interesting subject matter for die hard BSG fans, from the creation of Cylons and the history of the Adama family, but it is lacking some of the intensity that the BSG remake had from the get-go. Here were the things that I found most disappointing. Be warned, if you haven't watched the DVD yet, this review does contain some minor spoilers.
