BSG withdrawal cure: new Caprica clips

It's okay, relax, we're going to make it through this together. Battlestar Galactica ended its excellent four-year run last Friday, but life will go on sayeth the gods. While we wait for the Battlestar mini-movies to be released, let's not forget about Caprica-- the Battlestar prequel series.

The series isn't set to debut on television until 2010, but the two-hour pilot/telemovie is coming out on DVD next month. To promote the disc, seven clips of the pilot have been released online.

Caprica is a drama about the origins of the Cylons and the bitter battle between two familes--the Adamas and the Graystones--as they take opposite sides on the artificial-human debate.

I advise you to watch them all over at Movieweb to make a decision yourself, but frankly, they didn't make me too excited for the series. Let's hope Ron D. Moore has something up his sleeve for this.

What did you think of the clips?

So far Caprica seems to fall into the soap opera sub-genre of science fiction. While BSG was an intense drama set against an action/space adventure, a soap opera in a futuristic world doesn't have the same tinge of danger and excitement. At least when BSG got heavy there was always something blowing up to break the tension. BSG had something for everyone. Caprica, I'm not sure about yet. Are we going to see toasters revolting? Will have to wait and see.

I agree with others in saying when I saw the preview for Caprica during the BSG finale, it looked underwhelming and not even close to the excellence in cinemetography, writing and acting presented in BSG. Hopefully it will be better than my first impression.

With BSG concluded, I've lost a lot of hunger for Caprica, hopefully that will return as the date approaches. I'm more interested in the Plan, since I was kinda iffy on the BSG finale, maybe it will bolster my feelings for this great series.

I think it's probably something that needs to be seen in full, not snippets, so I'll be judging from the DVD when it comes out. I'm pretty excited by the cast, concept, and overall look of the show.

With how Battlestar ended I don't really see why anyone would really care what happens in Caprica. It seems pretty irrelevant/pointless. I'll still watch just because Battlestar was so amazing, but even at it's best can Caprica be anything near what BSG is?

Caprica does look underwhelming, but hopefully it'll be good in its own way. I think the main problem myself and other viewers will have is trying to stop measuring it up against BSG and see it as its own entity of sorts.
