Topic: On the verge of cancellation?

http://www.cinemaspy.com/article.php?id=3189

When the announcement came that there would be a Battlestar Galactica spin-off series entitled Caprica — which would chart both the society and the evolution of the Cylons on the titular planet some 50 years before Battlestar — many fans were excited at the possibilities. The pilot, however, never quite seemed to gel for some of us; continuing much of the same dark, philosophical navel-gazing that many felt had marred the first part of Battlestar Galactica's final season.

The announcement last month that Buffy alum James Marsters would be guest-starring as a dangerous terrorist leader by the name of Barnabus Greeley for at least three episodes buoyed anticipation for many, but now it seems as though any optimism may be premature. A trusted industry insider informed CinemaSpy on Saturday that production faces suspension on Caprica due to serious script problems/shortfalls, and that the future of the series may well be in jeopardy. From what we've been told, the producers haven't been altogether happy with the caliber of the stories.

Frankly, this came as a bit of a shock to us. Moreover, we should point out that we've been unable to corroborate the information independently. However, our source is well placed within the Vancouver film production community; in a position to know; and has been 100 percent accurate with information in the past.

If true, we hope this is only a temporary glitch, because we believe that the concept for Caprica is strong, and that the tone of the pilot wasn't necessarily a fair measure by which to judge the tone of a forthcoming series—changes are often commonplace once a show ramps up for production.

Meanwhile, we'll keep you posted on any further developments if and when we get them.

Thanks KB.

To be honest, I am not sure this is good news or not.  I am sort of indifferent about it now.
It's been too long since BSG finished, and I have moved onto other shows.
I may watch it, but I am not "...excited at the possibilities"

Um.

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