Saw it by "other means." I really liked it. I'm very excited for this to go to series. Thumbs up.

Re: Caprica - Grading & Discussion

Much better than I feared. I voted very good. It doesn't hold a candle to BSG but oddly enough hearing Adama and cubits and cylons and seeing the first centurians makes me smile in a bad fanboy way.

Neal Boortz will shoot himself in the head after seeing that party that man is afraid of a nipple and the word 'damn'. We need something of a naked sippowits ass scene.

Re: Caprica - Grading & Discussion

GRADE - inbetween Average & Above Average

It was an ok start enough to get me to watch the season 1 pilot though than god it got better after the opening 30 mins was soooo boring. The Cylon stuff was done really well including the ending and I liked the character of Bill's dad but the family stuff was boring and the religious stuff loses me in places because I find religion well annoying but the whole extremists plot should provide some action that Caprica will otherwise not have I feel. I felt anyof the sexual stuff especially in the holonet was a vain attempt to make this show look sexy n edgy and seems something SCI FI opps SYFY might of pressured RDM and his crew to stick in.

I still feel RDM could lose viewersin the opening half and the show will struggle on SCI FI IMO, its not going to get any new viewers than what BSG s3 & 4 brought in when the ratings went down for the franchise.

Re: Caprica - Grading & Discussion

What I didn't like:
- Watching teenagers be geniuses is truly excruciating.
- I'm still not sold on the idea of involving the Adama family so heavily into everything. Makes the universe seem a bit smaller to me (see the Dune prequels for being one of the worst offenders of this).

What I did:
- The actors playing Joe Adams and Daniel Graystone are both excellent.
- The holoband copying someone's image + search engines finding personal information to make a "copy" is a great sci-fi concept. RDM continues to astonish me.
- The shots of Caprica City and intrigue into Colonial racial, religious, and sexual politics. Lots of ingredients for a great series (and, if done well, a great universe when combined with BSG)
- Joe's scene with Tam in the holoband. That was excellent.
- Lots more, but nothing off the top of my head. I'll post more when I view it again.

In the end I'm still not big on the idea of a prequel to BSG, but on its own Caprica seems like it's got some potential. Now, when does Jane Espensen take over?

^ That was a bit of a snarky comment on my part, but it's also a genuine question. Is she show runner for all of season 1?

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.

Second half of it, I believe. A couple of interviews I've read with her have me a little bit more hopeful than beforebut still, I'm not convinced on her.
