Caprica Season 1.5 includes all nine of the final episodes, those aired in October of this year and the remaining five that SyFy has chosen to air in toto on 5 January, coinciding with ABC's broadcast of "V". Like the first set, these episodes were well written, well executed, and brilliantly acted by the amazing ensemble cast brought into the project. Additionally, there were many more "Easter eggs" for BSG fans, including the origins of "toaster," "skin job," and which of Admiral Adama's parents had the farm with the fox problem mentioned in BSG Season four. These episodes also delved further into Tauron culture and the origins of the Adama family itself in "The Dirteaters," arguably the best episode of the series.
However, there were problems. Aside from the fifteen-second scene in a so-far unaired episode where someone in the props department forgot to cover the British Columbia license plate on a nearby parked car, there were far fewer video blogs and deleted scenes compared to the first set. This either means video blogs weren't produced and the episodes weren't hacked up too much in editing or Universal wanted to get this product out as quickly as possible and overlooked perhaps some more interesting stuff about Caprica. Maybe all of that was covered in the first set, I don't know.Read more ›
Instead, we're presented with a world parallel to our own, where people use technology as an escape from the realities of life. Of course these characters are going to be different than those audiences met on Galactica. This is a world of excess, of hubris and invincibility. We see various parties, from corporate industries, the military, to religious organizations all marching forward, never stopping to consider where the beat of progress leads. There are some clunky moments in the series, from a few ham-fisted attempts to shove religious philosophical insight down our throats to various plot holes and inconsistencies. But the overall story arc and plotting was more consistent, as if the writers knew where they were going, even if the audience didn't, at least until the end.Read more ›
You will seldom find a better acted series. My favorite actor on the show is Eric Stolz, but also Alessandra Torresani and Lucy Rand (from Kyle XY) are outstanding. The rest of the cast are also outstanding, the characters are well developed including a limited role for James Marsters (from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel).
Caprica does make you think about the conflicts of religion, cyber terrorism and culture. Caprica does make us think about poly relationships, sexual fantasy, life after death through transference to the virtual world and/or the cybernetic world. Perhaps too few of the human race are ready to think in more than two dimensions. If you are a person who has an advanced mind set I encourage you to add your review, to contact SyFy, to contact NBC/Universal to save Caprica. If you a person who is tired of mindless tv programming I encourage you to step up to shows such as Caprica. Open your mind and dare to imagine the future.
