    Corporate espionage, online role-playing games, terrorist attacks--the world of Caprica isn't so different from our own. The science-fiction series delves into the complex back story that led to the superb rebooted Battlestar Galactica: two men connect through mutual grief, each having lost a daughter in a bombing. Daniel Graystone (Eric Stoltz, still best known for Some Kind of Wonderful) is the multimillionaire inventor of the holoband, a virtual reality version of the Internet; Joseph Adama (Esai Morales, NYPD Blue) is a lawyer and functionary for a crime family. Their glimmering friendship swiftly mutates as each realizes that the other offers something he wants… which eventually leads to the answer of Battlestar Galactica's greatest mystery: how did the Cylons begin? Caprica is flush with hot-button issues, ranging from alternate sexualities to religious extremism to troubling moral questions raised by accelerating technology; the world is a skillfully conceived dark mirror of contemporary life. The characters, unfortunately, are not so well developed. Too many of them have no clear desires or driving impulses--which isn't unlike real life, but makes for a meandering story line. On several occasions characters have to do something dumb just to keep the plot in motion; again, not unbelievable, but it's hard to stay engaged with characters you can't respect. Still, every episode has at least one moment that's truly clever or emotionally compelling, just enough to keep a viewer going. The series strengthens as it gets further in, so this may be one of those precarious first seasons where the creators work out the kinks (the first season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer was pretty rocky, but then it soared into the stratosphere). Caprica has a lot of potential; if it finds its footing, this could be great television. --Bret Fetzer

    Product Description

    The Battlestar Galactica phenomenon continues with this undeniably compelling look at where the real conflict between humans and the Cylons began...in a vibrant world remarkably like our own: Caprica. Fifty-eight years before Battlestar takes off, two powerful families – the Graystones and the Adamas – find their destinies irrevocably intertwined after a devastating explosion. As both houses struggle with the line where humanity ends and artificial intelligence – the Cylon race – begins, they’ll face off in a battlefield of corporate conspiracy, murder, sexual politics and family backbiting. From executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick comes this highly anticipated prequel starring Golden Globe nominee Eric Stoltz and Esai Morales and presented in uninterrupted Dolby 5.1 surround sound.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Why just France?! December 21, 2012
    Format:Blu-ray
    For some insane reason, France is the only country with Caprica on Blu-Ray. It will probably never get a US release, and that really sucks. That said, this French release will do in a pinch. The quality is great, and it includes extended scenes, commentary, some interviews, and, interestingly, the entire soundtrack(though, be warned, the tracks have been edited to be background music for the actual show and it's not what Bear McCreary inteded - the real soundtrack is set to be released soon, AFAIK). The menus are in French, but they're fairly basic and not particularly difficult to navigate(though if they are, Google Translate is your friend). The French dub does play by default, but the original English audio tracks are included, as well as subs in both French and English.

    There's one huge issue, however: while the Blu-Ray is not actually region protected, it's encoded at 1080/50i. Which the vast majority of US Blu-Ray players will not play. I got around it because I play it with my PC, but it doesn't work on my PS3. So be warned. There are various players that will play it, but you have to do some research first.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Just the Beginning January 5, 2011
    By Sam F.
    Verified Purchase
    SPOILER FREE***
    Apotheosis, currently acting as the series finale, was not meant to be the end of the series but it should be applauded the care to wrap up the events on this story as neatly as possible and keep fans salivating for more in case Caprica was not renewed for a second season. This episode was just the Beginning of the line and definitely made this show's 18 episode run worthwhile. To anyone thinking about giving this show a try, do not be afraid for you will not be given a complete cliffhanger. There is clearly meant to be more, but enough closure is given to make the show feel complete enough to warrant the money to download. Caprca may have been fairly slow in the beginning, but it was meant to buld the world and the characters within it so that we could be taken on the wild ride the last 4 episodes trust us upon and this finale was beautiful in the way it used the technology Caprica's world introduced to its viewers and showed how it changed the world forever. If any show I have ever seen deserved a season 2, its Caprica. here's hoping that Syfy gets their heads out of the gutter and realizes the potential this show really has, and it is very evident in the last ten minutes of this brilliant conclusion. So Say We All!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Cancelled but not the fault of the story.... November 9, 2010
    By Eva
    Verified Purchase
    OK, yes, it was a bit cerebral and philosophical. But the depth of the cultures was being fleshed out. The Taurans and Capricans etc. Not to mention the origins of the Monotheism that was so strangely unexplained in BSG. I wanted to know! They have 5 episodes that they are not going to air any time soon. Well, they should at least put them up for sale, I bought the season---I should get it.

    Part of the problem was the constant breaks in between episodes. I mean seriously, this was not BSG and it wasn't as technically demanding of a production. Why did they break it up and doom any chance of an audience following? I am so disappointed.

    Like Defying Gravity, the powers that be took away yet another thinking fans show. I am sick to death of giant shark of the month movies and blood and gore and screaming characters whose only purpose is to flash cleavage.

    sigh, I'll miss you Caprica. I have to admit it makes me reluctant to watch the new BSG spin off that is in the works that centers around the Cylon Wars, Blood and Chrome. I tolerated the breaks in BSG because it was that good. But I still just tolerated them. If this new spin off is not as good as BSG I won't keep watching if there are 6-12 month breaks in the same season. Too much risk that the show will be cancelled because fans just won't keep up. I hate getting into a show only to see it disappear. Firefly was astonishing tv and poof, thanks to blunders involving the episodes releases and the lack of attention by it's network it died a sudden and untimely death.

    No wonder sci fi fans are so reluctant these days. Writers and producers and the money behind it all? You guys need to take more time getting it right before airing it so we are not left with half stories and stupid reruns of Creature of the Week.

    Personally, I would love to see the Edgar Rice Burroughs Mars series made into a decent series. John Carter!

    5.0 out of 5 stars This isn't the whole season December 1, 2010
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    Customers buying this DVD need to be aware that this is not the entire season. It ends midway through season 1. There's more on Season 1.5. To avoid frustration, I would wait until the entire season is available on DVD.

    Not as good as Battlestar. Seems a little forced. Interesting back story to the cylons origins. Keeps you wondering where its going.

    2.0 out of 5 stars 19 episodes of, well, not much July 25, 2013
    Spoiler: This is supposed to be a prequel to Battlestar Galactica, but after 19 episodes, Caprica was canceled without providing many details. Bill Adama is a little kid, the Cylons are metal, and no other BSG characters have been introduced. The final episode ends with a skinjob teaser. Apparently, the producers thought they would get more time. But, the writing was bad. We don't know why the monotheists are terrorists. We don't know how a teenage girl can invent a sentient race of robots. We don't know why Greystone was able to get back into the V world after being killed in the V world and saying he could never go back. We don't know why Greystone doesn't just send his robots to wipe out the mob. Finally, what's with all the cigarettes?
