    It definitely was.

    I also loved the scene too where Daniel shows Joe his daughter and Joe is trying to reach out to touch her to see that she's real and Zoe just goes "BOO!" Great, logical reaction by both of them there.

    I couldn't stop laughing after they said that everything was going along fine until the Porn industry got hold of the technology. In 150.000 years, some things never change. :guffaw:

    And about that search engine-stuff, my first thought was: "I knew it. Google is here to take over the world! But until then: 'Google is your friend'" :guffaw:

    Excellent.

    I was expecting to like this and I was glad to see my anticipation was justified. The only thing that bums me out is that this is too weird and cerebral to avoid cancellation. I have my doubts that it'll live beyond its first season.

    The thing I found odd was that the big talking point for the producers has been how this was supposed to be accessible in ways that Galactica wasn't. If anything, this is weirder. Which is fine by me, but I wonder who else is going to watch it?

    It's also evident from some comments in this thread and others I've read around the web that the space setting that the producers thought was so prohibitive to BSG was probably all that was holding some some of the dwindling audience's interest.

    For my part, I don't really care. Give me a good story that makes you consider something larger and I'll be there. Galactica did it brilliantly and Caprica looks poised to take a pretty good run at it too.

    I just finished watching Caprica and i have to agree with this sentiment. So cute & sexy. And that voice...

    Other than that, Caprica was definitely above average and I'm looking forward to more.
    When are episodes supposed to start airing ?

    2010, supposedly. I had expected it to air simultaneously with Stargate Universe, but Syfy may be trying to stagger their schedule instead of providing an all-in-one Sci-Fi Friday like we're used to.

    I didn't think I would like this. I was wrong, I'm actually interested in learning about life in the Twelve Colonies of British Columbia... er Kobol.

    Actually they aren't. I went back and had a look and while they look very similar they are definitely not the Canadian and US flags. Screencap

    I dunno, they sure look like the US and Canadian flags. The US flag even has 13 stripes.

    US flags have thirteen stripes to symbolize the original thirteen colonies. I just realized how weird that sounds in a BSG forum. I can't see them very well, but I assume they are the US and Canadian flags. Maybe altered slightly with CGI.

    I don't think the are the US and Canadian flags... the entire left side of the left one is orange, and it has stripes on it. The one on the right also has stripes, which appear to go all the way across, but it has the pyramid symbol in the middle

    I agree with archeryguy1701. The two flags in those pictures don't look a thing like any Canadian or American flag I'm familiar with.

    The Canadian flag looks like it has stripes because there are metal beams blocking the way. The US Flag has something in front of it - maybe a light or something, but it definitely looks like the same US flag found here (It's even in the same location)

    This is a photo from the General Motors Place (where this scene was filmed).

    Not that it really matters, though. I still loved the pilot.

    It's quite possible it was simply CGI'd over the existing US flag, but the flag in the screencap isn't the US flag (it has no blue box of stars, for one, and appears to have a pyramid logo in the centre of it) - nor is the other one Canadian. In fact, it looks more like the Irish flag than the Canadian flag.

    It looks more like the Ivory Coast flag, actually. :shifty:

    I don't know why you guys think the left flag is orange. To mee if clearly is red, with an irregular red shape in the middle (a maple leaf maybe) which lef me to think that it was a Canadian flag.

    And the picture I posted above has the US flag in the same position as the right flag. I'm guessing that the two were accidentally left in the shot and maybe they tried to cover them up with cgi.
