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!
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.
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!
If you are looking for space battles and action, you will be disappointed. If you are looking for a television series that has something to say about terrorism, addiction to technology, organized crime, the emergence of artificial intelligence (the natural kind seems to have escaped the programmers who cancelled this series) and a hundred other things we humans here on earth have to deal with (and contains great dialogue and phenomenal performances by a troupe of very talented actors portraying unforgettable characters) you will like this series very much.
This show was too smart for the typical SyFy channel viewers who think "Sharknado" is the cat's meow and made dumb comments like "If I wanted to watch a DRAMA I wouldn't be watching the SyFy channel! Where are the space battles!".
I loved this series and was willing to accept that it wasn't an action series like Galactica. I'm perfectly fine with simply watching a truly great television drama.
Now for the review of the disc set itself:
The special features are nicely done, but WHAT WAS UNIVERSAL THINKING WHEN THEY PUT THIS SERIES OUT IN 4x3 WITH A MATTED IMAGE?!!!!
Although the packaging says that the series is in ANAMORPHIC widescreen, it isn't. It is in 1.33:1 with black bars matting the top and bottom of the 4x3 frame. That means that if you have a widescreen TV you will see the 1.77:1 image as a box surrounded on all sides by a black frame!Read more ›
