BSG Caprica tonight

post #1 of 51
Thread Starter 
It's on tonight. Will you be watching it? http://www.syfy.com/caprica/

If I understand correctly, what's on tonight is the same as the dvd that came out back in April. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0799862/ So I guess the real premier is next Friday the 29th.

I'll take whatever BSG I can get. I'm not picky.

I'm watching. It looks like it might be good. But what is BSG?

I already saw it last year, but I have a season pass for the series so it's recording it and I'm sure I'll rewatch just to refresh my memory before the season premier.

Hm. Maybe? Sure!

I saw it on Netflix last year. I wasn't sure how I felt about. I didn't like it as much as BSG. I'm going to watch it again tonight to see if it's better the second time around. I'll definitely watch the series, though, to see if I can get into.

Much as I LOVED BSG, I don't know if I'll watch Caprica. I just couldn't get into it. I wanted so much to like it because I loved BSG, but right now it's not appealing to me.

I would rather watch reruns of BSG from the beginning of the new BSG series (not the old 1980s version) rather than watch Caprica.

I enjoyed it a little more on rewatching it last night. I'm going to give it a chance. I think I just need to not think of it as BSG, but as a completely different show that happens to take place in the same galaxy. I do think it will be interesting to learn more about the cultures of the different planets - we got hints of that on BSG, but it was interesting learning a little more.

I don't like it as much as BSG, either. But I agree, it is interesting to learn about the history, society and culture that was hinted at in BSG.

The cylons were disgusted with the human tendency towards violence and cruelty, weren't they?

Zoe, the main gal whose avatar is turned into the first cylon, is a crusader. Do I have that right? In response to the violent cruelty portrayed in the cyber world, she tells her avatar that she's going to make it better. I think that's what she was saying, anyway. She was a little more daring than her avatar was.

So here's what I think we're supposed to get from this: the seed of that zealous, crusading attitude that the cylons have is from her. We're seeing the very beginning of it right there, in the pilot episode.

I think it's absolutely fascinating, and I would have loved to have been watching this simultaneously with BSG.

But I do think the show is kind of a downer. Battlestar Galactica was fun!

I haven't rewatched it yet, but I love movies and shows that get down to the foundations of how it started. I really enjoyed Caprica when I watched it last year for the same reason that I loved Batman Begins and X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

We'll watch it on Bluray when it comes out... DH has erratic schedules, and we wanna watch it together, so we'll wait.
I thought the movie had too much naked skin in there for my taste (I just don't care for sex scenes), but otherwise, was good. Like the story how the cylons came to be and how their society was, is really interesting. Especially after BSG was ended so beautifully, all we can do is look back in time

We have the DVD and have watched it a couple of times.

I agree with most other posters, I REALLY miss BSG, but am willing to give this a shot. If you watched The Plan, they had a few scenes from the other planets during the cylon attack. It will be neat if we get to know those other cultures now.

I also like Esai Morales. We were big Jericho fans, and he was great as Major Beck. (Sigh... ANOTHER great show we can't watch anymore!)

Ok watched tonights episode. Really enjoyed it. They are taking their time with the storyline, and I was shocked at Amandas actions at the memorial. Sure didn't expect that. I love that Polly Walker is in the series, she is always good at playing a villain. I liked the way they chose to show Zoe although I'm wondering how the aging factor will play out over multiple seasons. Will they make virtual Zoe age along with the actor? Wouldn't she be frozen in time age wise though?

I'm a little confused by the development of Sister Claire's character... what the heck's up with her?
post #17 of 51
Let me say that while I was skeptical about Caprica at first, I am strangely compelled to watch...so that must mean something. Still looking for Starbuck to fall out of the sky, though!

She is a closet monotheist who guides and/or organizes other closet monotheists.

Well, she's 23, so I don't think they'll be an obvious change in her looks.

If you watched Buffy and Angel you can look at Angel in the first season of Buffy and the last season of Angel and see him age, but if you just watched the series through you probably would not have noticed it.

So has Joseph Adama not officially changed their name yet? When he called Willie's school, he called him Willie Adama and then corrected himself and said Adams.

Didn't the group marriage kind of remind people of how the cylons (skin-jobs) are all very free with their love, etc.?

Does the cylon work because Zoe thinks its HER body? How are they going to make other cylons work? Create avatars of real people? Hmmmm......
