I know it's been out for a couple months, but I missed it when it was on TV, and only recently saw it, thanks to Netflix.
So, what did you think of Caprica? Personally, I didn't really like it. It just wasn't as good as BSG. Even the special effects weren't as good. When they showed the Greystones' house/mansion, it just looked terrible. The Cylon effect, though, were pretty good.
And the begining was very unexpected (kids, don't watch it, at least not with your parents ) I think they could have left that part out without damaging the show in any way.
The story was pretty lackluster, as well. It seems that the Adamas were thrown in just to provide a connection to BSG. Joesph Adama being partly resposible for the creation of the Cylons was a "What the Frak?" moment. I mean, really, was that necissary?
For me at least, the only part of it that I actually liked was the creation of the Cylons, other than that, it was "meh" IMO, the only way for Caprica to gain the kind of popularity BSG has is if they fastfoward 10 years to the start of the first Cylon war. Otherwise, it seems like they will run out of ideas really fast.
So, that's my take on Caprica, whats yours?
