Like many people who loved Battlestar Galactica, I had a great deal of enthusiasm and anticipation for Caprica. That quickly dissapated after just a few episodes of the show. I don't think I've ever watched a series this dark (and normally I like dark), not to mention a series without one remotely likeable regular character. The religion subplot took up way too much of the storyline. And the world these characters live in makes the real world look like paradise. Everyone in this fictional world is either evil or hates their life. You have a religious cult that brings back memories of the Branch Dividians in Texas, led by (a trend now in TV) the cold evil leader with the british accent. Then there is the virtual world that was more violent than anything ever shown on TV (but it's not real, so that makes it OK?). You also have a Tauron mafia that actually displays evidence of moral behavior, which is more than can be said for the rest of this depressing world. When Caprica began, and the story showed how morally bankrupt everyone was, I thought this would lead to the birth of the Cylons as a race with higher god fearing standards than the humans. Instead, everyone on this show was depressing to watch. However, much blame should also be placed on the SyFy channel. I am really sick and tired of shows that run a handful of episodes and then goes on hiatus for six months or more. Either let a show run a season or don't put it on at all. On a related note, what the hell is up with this new numbering system for seasons?? If your show does not run a new episode for at least four months, what comes next is not part of the same season. If I had to live in the world of Caprica, I would probably commit suicide.
