    Galactica Prequel! Dec 1,2008

    [FONT=Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]It was recently announced that sci-fi remake series Battlestar Galactica is getting a whole new spinoff prequel series called "Caprica." Signed on for twenty hours worth of finished product, including a two-hour pilot, the new series is to be set 50 years prior to Battlestar Galactica, and will focus on two rival families, the Graystones and the Adamas. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif] "Enmeshed in the burgeoning technology of artificial intelligence and robotics that will eventually lead to the creation of the Cylons, the two houses go toe-to-toe blending action with corporate conspiracy and sexual politics. 'Caprica' will deliver all of the passion, intrigue, political backbiting and family conflict in television's first science fiction family saga."
    [/FONT]

    [FONT=Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Of all the things they could have done they go and make a sci-fi adventure a drama. :wtf:

    I was searching to find out if BG had been terminated. Couldn't find anything. I'm guessing it has. Anyone know?

    Glad BSG is over soon. It got drawn out long enough. Now as for Caprica, I personally think it is going to a shitty ass series. But only time will tell.

    I'm not sure what to expect from Caprica. Battlestar has been a hell of a ride so far and it looks like the series is going to come to a hell of an end. For the record Battlestar hasn't been cancelled, the plan was 4th season and done... end of story.

    I think they have there series backwards.

    Caprica just doesn't interest me. But the add for the Cylon point of view 2 hour movie sure does.

    I don't know if they could do 5 seasons of the war from the Cylon point of view.... but they certainly could do more then 2 hours of that.

    I don't think they could, at least maintaining a high level of interest like season 1-2 of BSG.

    I just realized... isn't Caprica supposed to be about the birth of the cylons? Didn't we learn in BSG that the cylons are over 2000 years old? If so, what is Caprica about? :hsugh:

    The "re-birth" of the cylons.

    You know, that whole stupid cycle thing.

    No, it didn't happen... SciFi ended up ordered an entire first season after seeing the pilot, so they delayed airing the pilot all together for a while.

    However, knowing people will want to see the pilot, it is being released onto DVD April 22nd

    Doing a prequel never seems like a good idea since you know what's going to happen at the end, kinda.

    Just for your information, your favorite torrent site probably has a link to the pre-air of Caprica episode 1...

    Didn't watch it yet. Looks too soapish for me.

    So tell me... is it worth my time to finish season 3 and watch season 4? Or am I just going to be mad? :o

    There was a few enjoyable moments, but there was a lot that pissed me of. Season 4 is almost entirely about 'the final 5'. The season finale was quite the copout too. As long as you watched to the episode with the Adama maneuver you've seen most of the enjoyable BSG episodes.

    Hmm. Maybe I won't bother, then.

    I just started The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr, by the way. Great show. I'm only on episode 3, and I'm already mad that it only went one season.

    If you're religious, delighted.

    Otherwise, fucking pissed off.
