Re: Advance review of SciFi's "Caprica" movie--SPOILERISH

I'm looking forward to it, I just hope that it doesn't throw the Sci-Fi in your face, and is a bit more like Blade Runner. I only saw one preview, and while it looked good it didn't draw me in - one scene annoyed me, with some woman wearing flashy glasses which I assume were meant to be an interface of sorts..

Re: Advance review of SciFi's "Caprica" movie--SPOILERISH

Is this the clip you mean?

Zoe Holoband


That's Zoe wearing the glasses. They provide access to the virtual environment. The musical score is very "Blade Runner-ish" IMO. Bear did a wonderful job on the score. That's where Zoe's created her online "twin" it would seem. It seems very promising to me. Of course that could be my Esai Morales/Polly Walker/Eric Stoltz love making me biased. Any show with Rome's Polly Walker, I'm so there.

I know they provide access to it, it just looked really dumb to me with the flashy glasses. Though that scene looks a bit better.

The avatar stuff in the preview clip on Scifi is sort of like Cylon projection.

Re: Advance review of SciFi's "Caprica" movie--SPOILERISH

Now there's something I hadn't thought of. Zoe programmed her thought patterns and memories in this online virtual matrix to create her avatar, but according to the Caprica series "bible" this online environment exists because of holoband technology. It is just like cylon projection. Daniel Graystone invented holoband technology. The pieces fall into place.

I hadn't read anything about Caprica, but reading the stuff in the link and seeing the clip makes me very interested. Looks intriguing.

Re: Advance review of SciFi's "Caprica" movie--SPOILERISH

I still love the theme Bear McCreary has composed for the series.

Caprica theme

He doesn't feel it's character based, but it sounds ominous and tragic at the same time to me. I can't but thinking of as Zoe's theme in a way. If Daniel hadn't been so desperate to recreate her, would the first cylon war have taken place? If there's no first cylon war, then the final five don't have the misguided notion to create skin jobs who will ultimately be hijacked by Cavil.

The glasses remind me of the Game in the TNG episode "The Game".

Yeah, but neither is Star Trek and The Sopranos.

Re: Advance review of SciFi's "Caprica" movie--SPOILERISH

Star Trek especially so, though Manny Coto gave it a hell of a shot. Personally I think the fact that Zoe is a montheist is a brilliant way to explain how the centurions suddenly "acquired" a radically different religion--or that they acquired religion at all. Scientists aren't quick to incorporate religion into their work, are they? If Daniel's obsessed with his dead child, that's clever as hell to create backstory from that.

What's wrong with The Sopranos' backstory? (I've seen the whole series, but I am far from being an expert. I'm genuinely curious here)

Re: Advance review of SciFi's "Caprica" movie--SPOILERISH

How are they going to reconcile the notion that the Final Five Cylons invented skinjobs with Greystone inventing them? The Final Five's Cylons are the skinjobs that ended up "counting" in the plotline. Greystone's efforts are redundant.

They have my permission to bring Michael Trucco back as a guest star to assist Greystone if it helps this all make sense. I'd love to see all the Final Five back (minus Tory, boring/badly written character). And Cavil, he'd be good too.

Is Greystone inventing skin-jobs here? I've read that he's creating Cylons with consciousness, but the actual form is solely mechanical outside of the virtual realm. Or am I incorrect?
