Re: Caprica - Grading & Discussion

Having seen the first two episodes ondamand... I am not sure how I feel about it yet.

The sweeping visuals are good for a TV show, kind of reminds me of the short lived Kings on NBC, and the writing isn't bad.

That said... I like the idea of showing how the cylon's were created and that could build into the cylon uprising and first war. Slowly building to that is fine with me as long as there is a real driving plot and decent writing and characters. So far the plot is a little weak to me, just because so far it is based on teenage angist. Not something I really give a crap about now, or in a gaxely far far away and sometime in the past. However, it is is a pretty intresting show so far, I will watch it to see where it goes; it has pretty decent potential. I also like the underlying "racism" between the different colonies. It could provide some believeable extra-plot drama.

But just so I get it... the first cylon centurian is a pissed off 'quasi-terrorist' teenage girl?
