I don't mind that Caprica
tries to be different. However, I do mind the annoyingly incoherent story arcs and characters. Sure, that's something BSG suffered from as well sometimes... just not to that extent (in part, I'm attributing it to the fact that Caprica
switched its showrunner two or three times during its first eleven episodes
). In addition, BSG had the spaceflight element which made up for some of those weaknesses.
