The show returns on Tuesday Oct. 5th, so get ready. Also, there won't be a separate Live Commentary thread due to a lack of activity, so feel free to post any live comments in this thread.

Hopefully they pick up the pace more. A lot of the first half was sooooooo slow.

Re: Caprica 1x10: "Unvanquished"

I have End of Line set and this episode set up for tomorrow night but I just don't know yet. I know when I get home from work the first show I'm watching is Glee. Not sure when I'll get to Caprica, and part of that is because the show wasn't very good in the first half. It wasn't bad either, but just left me underwhelmed.

It was fast-paced but too unfocused - too many plotlines that lack a strong tie to the core dramatic conflict between Joseph, Zoe and Daniel. Stronger focus will make things seem more important and impactful.

JOSEPH ADAMA: "You call me a dirt eater, now I must kill you... after I spend the next 10 hours in the virtual world hooked on some sort of virtual drug that actually affects me."

SISTER CLARICE: "Soldiers of the One, let's go around acting like a dangerous cult. Then we can have an orgy!"

LACY: "I need to go to Gemenon. And when I say I need to go, I really really need to go now. Why? Because, that's why!"

DANIEL: "My dead daughter is a terrorist and her avatar is lost, my crazy wife jumped off a bridge and her avatar isn't all that bright. My life would be so much better had I been kept on Back to the Future."

TOMAS VERGIS: "You touched Pete's piece, Greystone, now you must pay the price. No one ever touches Pete's piece!"

Does that about sum up this episode?

Nice poster for Kill Bill.

Can anyone tell me if this is only airing on Space in Canada?

Re: Caprica 1x10: "Unvanquished"

Are we still only in the first season? Feels like it should be the second with a wait like that...

I am really interested to see what the ratings are like now that it is on Tuesday, since SGU did NOT do well in the ratings department for its premier episode last Tuesday.

I'm incredibly indifferent to this. I may watch if I remember. I may sleep instead. The first half of the season was mediocre. The long wait for the second half doesn't help things.

Re: Caprica 1x10: "Unvanquished"

This show seems to have similar problems that Enterprise did... they want to slowly build up to a great prequel idea but they are going so slowly that tuners are tuning out. Hope they can make something interesting happen before it's too late.

Yes, the season numbering system is maddening. I just started using my own numbering system. For examples, Sopranos season 7 = 6.5. I wonder if they started doing this to screw writers, actors etc out of $$$ or something. Shrug.

Bring in the 'splosions and the space battlez!!1!

I agree, I found the early episodes of Caprica to be nothing like BSG. At least in BSG there were characters that I either liked or cared about. In Caprica there is no one. They're all bland and one-dimensional.

Hopefully things pick up. The destruction of the pyramid stadium in the trailer looked pretty cool.

Yeah... 'splosions...

Re: Caprica 1x10: "Unvanquished"

Clarice's speech is a highpoint of the series thus far. Good combination of theme and plot.

To bad the stadium explosion was not real, that would have been a huge way to start the 'half' season, alas the writers have no balls, anything that looks cool and may happen will just be virtual..

The stadium explosion, as depicted, was far too implausible -- seriously, how could anyone line a full stadium with that much explosive power? If it had been real it would have been far too unbelievable and would have seriously undermined the series.

As presented, it worked just fine as a hook -- not exactly the most subtle of hooks, mind you -- but I'm fine with the fact that it wasn't real.
