^ love the picture

I'm excited for this and really just ready to be through. Sounds horrible but while Caprica is getting a lot better it's still a bit of a chore to watch for me. I never would've stuck around this long if it wasn't a BSG prequel.

Re: Caprica 1x18: "Apotheosis"

I've REALLY enjoyed the show since it came back.

But while I am a casual viewer of most scifi...I'm into the BSG-verse like most Trekkies like Trek. I find a look into Colonial society fascinating.

Okay, WOW. The big shock ending was that there was no cliffhanger! Pure resolution! That last 10 minutes made me nerdgasm to the extreme. Awesome! They managed to bridge Caprica and BSG so fucking nicely in one final act.

Makes me wonder what they were gonna do if season 2 did happen... they basically wrapped the show.

Simply stunned. WOOOOO!

Re: Caprica 1x18: "Apotheosis"

I said when the cancellation was announced and Syfy yanked the show in the U.S that they wanted to bury and piss on anychance of the fans rallying and after seeing the way it's end that I could make a good case for that argument.

Glad that they we've seen a resolution to much of the story line though.

Clarice struck me like so many cult leaders - more than happy to send others off to die in the name the religion but not so keen on doing it herself.

Wonder which version of Zoe was in the "Church" at the end. After her encouner with Clarice and talking about how "heaven" being so open would see people acting in the real world as they do in New Cap City, I'm surprised Zoe would have anything to do with her again.

Finaly wonder what happened to Cyrus after his showdown with the GDD guys.

Re: Caprica 1x18: "Apotheosis"

Wait...so there isn't a big cliffhanger?

I'll catch this show on DVD eventually, but I'm actually (a little) excited by the fact that it will have a (little bit of) resolution.

^ No real cliffhanger. There's a five-minute segment that serves as a pretty good wrap-up to the series.

Re: Caprica 1x18: "Apotheosis"

Temis had a point. People wouldn't want those centurions in their homes washing dishes. It's something I thought about too. It was nice to see that this issue was addressed.

Yeah, I wonder how they'd deal with Tamara if the show were to get a second season.

I've been thinking that for the last few weeks. BSG's end was an event while Caprica fizzled out, but it does have an epilogue that doesn't disappoint. I don't want to say much more just yet. Not everyone has seen the episode and it's too big to spoil even in a spoiler thread.

Re: Caprica 1x18: "Apotheosis"

Really satisfying end. That "Shape of Things to Come" segment at the end was awesome, and the part showing what happens with Lacy totally made up for the fact she was otherwise absent in the episode.

I enjoyed the show overall, though it tended to waver from being really cool and exciting to dull and sluggish. A shame that the whole season wasn't as consistently good as the final five episodes.

Re: Caprica 1x18: "Apotheosis"

I wouldn't go so far as to say that the final five episodes were "consistently good." They sharpened the narrative focus a bit and, as a group, made up the best stretch of the series. But not even "Apotheosis" wasn't consistently good. The first half of the episode pales in comparison to its final act (and coda).

But I will say that the series ended as strongly as anyone could have hoped for. "The Shape of Things To Come" works as a brilliant five-minute mini-film, portraying all of the important thematic and character elements of the series. If only the rest of the season had been so focused and condensed. And, too, it points to what would have been a fascinating second season, with an explicit focus on integrating AI into a society.

If the series had gone on to a second season, it would have been with a *lot* of very positive buzz. And as much as I have criticized season one, I would have been very eager to see season two.

After the cancellation announcement was first made, I was disappointed. After "Apotheosis," I'm gutted. I loved every second of this episode.

I haven't seen the episode yet but if it has a seeming resolution to most storylines...that makes buying the DVDs more inviting.
