Re: Caprica - Grading & Discussion
It was interesting, I'm certainly willing to give the show a shot once the series begins next year. I'd say it was above average
The first half was pretty slow, and thank the gods the whole show didn't focus on those annoying teenagers, but why is every Ben on television evil these days?
The V club was pretty stupid, I think that it is one of those ideas which is cool when it is in your head but visualising it just makes the whole thing tacky. Even lesbian nudity couldn't save it, and lesbian nudity can usually save anything!
The second part was much better and I enjoyed the exploration of the two fathers willing to do anything to get their daughters back. Joseph's speech about seeing flowers for the first time was nice, and the scene where he sees Tamara again was heart-breaking. I can see him and Daniel being very interesting characters.
My main problem is the Cybernetic Life-form Node. Those guys are kickass, but the idea that they contain the personality of an annoying teenage girl detracts from their kickassery. I guess I'll just have to wait and see where it goes.
