Re: 'Caprica' is GO!

I was really surprised how much was explained in the pilot. They basically explained the whole BSG story of the last 4 seasons in the pilot. It's clear where it goes and the interesting part is - how wink

William Adama looks cute though, hard to imagine how this little boy becomes the Admiral smile

If this series is picked up strong. the could actually serve many seasons in different times, there are 58 years to fill yikes
You could get the family drama first. And after a while you get the whole first Cylon war. This series has great potential, but has to be done with a huge budget, which wa obviously the case for the pilot. If it doesn't get the budget it won't get the audience and gets canned soon.

Let's hope for the best.

No I go to the store and buy the HyperBand big_smile

After the success of the BSG, i think caprica is a safe bet to put your money on

Wow, I'm so glad I watched it svada007 wink

Amazing pilot. I agree, Caprica has huge potential. Great choice of actors, nice story so far, basically the same makers/writers as BSG. I guess you couldn't wish for more... I'm really looking forward to the first season smile

Re: 'Caprica' is GO!

I am not so sure.  It was a good to watch, but they have to be really careful with time line issues.  Old style cylons vs new style.

I'll watch a few to see how it goes before I write it off or not.

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

Re: 'Caprica' is GO!

Yeah I'm in the same boat as Wizard - I'm very concious of the timeline in play here.
The story itself was a bit 'meh' for my liking, with a lot of very obvious moments.
I'm curious to see what the rest of the season is about - if it's a lead up to the fall, or just a drama show set in the same BSG-verse with some similar themes.

One thing did hook in with me - when the mom dropped the daughter off to school she was driving a petrol car. Could they not have a least used some SFX to make it look/sound like a more technologically advanced car?

Re: 'Caprica' is GO!

i'm not sure if i'm scared or intrigued by the fact that just today i have seen two seperate articles from BSG actors refering to their characters possibly being in Caprica...

why do i feel like they are trying to soften a potential blow to the head..?

i'm going to eat your brains and gain your memories...

Re: 'Caprica' is GO!

Why would you be scared con?
Since Caprica is supposed to be a prequel to BSG I'm hoping for the appearance of a few chars in the show (at least some key chars).

Re: 'Caprica' is GO!

We've already seen Bill Adama...

Re: 'Caprica' is GO!

Yep smile
And it would be nice to see someone of the final five. I think Col. Tigh would be great wink

i guess if handled right it could be glorious... don't know really... guess i had this whole "separate from BSG, but in the same 'verse" thing so ground into my head that these articles just sort of made me second guess things...  and as long as they don't retrofit BSG continuity or screw up the timeline...

and i guess what it comes down to for me is... as long as it's not fanservice and it serves the plot then it should be fine...

and yeah, they had little Bill Adama in the pilot... beuatiful thing there was i had distanced the two shows in my head so much that it wasn't until 3/4 of the way through the Caprica pilot that i went "oh yeah... little William is the old man"...

Right. But I think they already did a pretty good job with the pilot. Looks like they have enough budget to do it right smile

And great pic there con. Amazing detail smile
Actually that reminds me of the cylon design in Caprica. Before I watched the Caprica pilot I was kinda looking forward to see the evolution of their bodies. I imagined them to be rather imperfect and of poor design really. But in the pilot they already look a lot like in BSG. Of course there are differences, but still... I would have tought they'd start off with some prototype models and get to a more advanced model over time.

Re: 'Caprica' is GO!

watched it finally...it was freakin awesome, much better than i anticipated. niiiice
