Testing Testing, 1, 2 and 3..
Syfy (ended 2010)
Ok, working now. Good.
Would like to point out to InvasionBoyToy and people disliking the show, saying its slow, non actionpacked etc. That Caprica is NOT BSG and it will never be BSG. Its not ment to be in the same fashion or showing the same thing. Its ment to be a series of itself showing a new side of the BSG franchise. Eventually leading up to the events that BSG has shown us.
And to Xilelord.. uhm... Why would they remake another BSG ... again ? Just set on earth ? You see.. thats what I think is you guys biggest problem. You want it to be BSG all over again. Well, wake up. It's NOT!
I love the show and I find it intriguing and making me want more. Sure, I'll admit that some of the series are abit slow and somewhat boring. I could comment about it and become all mighty and bash the series down, but then I would have to do it to every single TV series made throughout the decades...
There is one thing I would like to point out though, thats really annoying and pissing me off. So Moore if your reading this!! Smack yourself in the mouth! Through the 9 episodes watched of Caprica.. you've used 2 characters allready seen in the BSG franchise. Now that is god damn blasphemy!! SHAME ON YOU!
Apart from that. I love the series and I cant wait to see what Moore it will unveil along the way, be it slow or fast. Preferably a mixture of both.
|Caprica like Battlestar Galactica is sci-fi deeply rooted in present-day themes. It is not the same show, BSG is action packed and full of military driven drama and intrigue. This is more cerebral sci-fi fare about the limits of science and it's commentary on our society. I like for that. It has the potential to be very good... it just isn't there yet, hopefully that will be remedied soon|
Sci-fi is a tricky genre. It may veer towards political commentary, philosophical questions or simply a futuristic version of a Western or a war movie. Depending on the audience, the same movie can be great or suck ("let me know your opinion on 2001 and I can't tell how you are" sort of thing). BSG was one of those rare examples of cross-genre that could please almost anyone as it was effective in many different fronts. Tough act to follow. Caprica is far less engaging but is not that bad if one doesn't compare it with BSG. Ok, being not that bad doesn't mean it's good either. If I still watch it, it's mostly out of curiosity as to how the developments in this series would ultimately lead to the what we saw in BSG. It may be contradictory: Caprica is second-rate compared to BSG, maybe less so if standing on its own, but BSG is still the reference that makes me interested in Caprica; without it, I doubt I'd still be interested in watching further episodes.
No my friend, this is no BSG, however if you don't try to look for and make comparisons you'll find that Caprica is a great show for now, exactly as it is!This is a perfect show for the re-branding of scifi to syfy! I think it makes perfect sense, that doesn't mean I always like it, I mean really, wrestling on scifi or syfy? Really????? I find it quite a stretch myself, but to each his own! Caprica rocks if your not looking for bsg!
I attempted watching the pilot episode when it was first released on DVD and it stunk, I couldn't make it past the first 20 minuets of the show. If SyFy is smart they'll drop this show and save their money.
yes, it is a bad show. i gave it a chance and some characters are just too boring. you cannot really blame the actors but rather the writing and the whole show... I think it all started horribly. "Pilot is just embarrassing bad to watch" just like InvasionFanbOy said.
heros have been canned (that was a pretty good show at least s1)... and flashforward too (5 first episodes then fell flat on its face)... i guess caprisa will be NEXT!... the canhammer is hitting hard......
I don't know how anyone else feels about this, but I feel that all the women actors in this show are horrible at acting and they're quite annoying, except for Tamara Adama, even though she's kind of like Neo in the matrix lol
|I love it. Maybe because I watched it all at once, I dunno. I guess if you were expecting another BSG you would be disappointed, but I wan't. Mainly because they said about a thousand times it wasn't going to be another BSG. I loved BSG, and I love that this show isn't trying to be another one. It is it's own beast and I can see that if it gets the chance, it has the potential to be something great... well greater.|
