Re: A Look at Caprica

I liked the pilot too and I'm very interested at how they are gonna make a series out of it. As for the lack of spaceships, who knows. The first Cylon war could be included, that would give us a lot of gunshots.

Only if they decide to jump forward about six years.

Re: A Look at Caprica

I'm confused about the storyline though, shouldn't there be Cylons/Toasters around already to make life easier? And the society should be more advanced that the Colonial one right?

Time jumps aren't unheard of in the shows in this universe.

Re: A Look at Caprica

I haven't watched the pilot yet cause of no blu-ray version out. Are those in the series?

Re: A Look at Caprica

It'd be weird if they dropped them. We see one-eyed servant robots, and some fairly advanced computer stuff (including crazy electronic paper interfaces) in the pilot.

No, this show is about the *invention* of the Cylons.

And the society should be more advanced that the Colonial one right?
Uh, Caprica *is* a colony, you understand...

Keep in mind, that at the time of the show, the Colonies are not unified. So therefore, this is not really a depiction of "Colonial society" the way BSG was.

Re: A Look at Caprica

Caprica pilot was awesome, especially the last 20 minutes or so. Maybe better than any of the BSG season 4 episodes. I loved the noir look and feel of the show, the cast is great, and Esai Morales and Eric Stoltz were both great. I am very interested in exploration of what the Colonies were like - it seems that there was a lot of corruption and decadence and some racism - and in the ethical side of the story of the creation of AI beings. A lack of spacebattles doesn't concern me at all, since I tend to be bored by them anyway, unless they are really wonderfully made, and it's certainly not what I watch SF for.

Copy and Paste. This is exactly how I felt about the pilot and I cant wait for the series.
