The premise for this show was great and it would almost be a no brainer to create a successful show. So what went wrong. Well first of all everyone seems to be a villain. Who are the good guys really. It's hard to relate to any of these characters. You have Graystone on one side who is more determined on ruling the world rather than be the good guy, and on the other side you have the STO who are more keen on terrorising and blowing everything up in order to achieve their goal, which is to rule the world. We don't like terrorists. Secondly there's too much emphasis on religion. It makes the show pointless. It's hard to understand why the STO are doing what they're doing. BSG didn't overuse religion. There was much more emphasis on the purpos, which was to get to earth. Capricas ultimate purpos is to invent the cylons and go to war with them. Where's the emphasis on that. The holobands? Third mistake. The holobands are obviously created to give us a view into the cylons inner workings and their ability to project. In BSG this concept is completly foreign to the capricans. So the invention and the large emphasis on the holobands doesn't make much sense. Though from a scifi-buffs perspective is a double chocolate donut. Which leaves us with the real problem of the show. It's appeal to the larger audience. It's just too boring for most. Too tech and unrelatable. One of BSGs strengths were the characters. There were so many likeable characters. Good or bad they were all likeable. I hope the next spinoff will get better writers that has actually watched the show they're doing the spinoff of. Caprica could have been great. They simply just lost focus.
