Forget that 2011 Business!! Syfy’s CAPRICA Returns In Less Than A Month, On Tuesdays!!

Published at: Sept. 9, 2010, 10:22 p.m. CST by hercules

I am – Hercules!!
Syfy has changed its mind. After announcing in late July that “Caprica” would not return with its next 10 episodes until next year, Syfy announced late Thursday that “Caprica” is actually returning Oct. 5 of THIS year. Look! Press release!
CAPRICA RETURN ON SYFY SHIFTS TO OCTOBER 5, 2010 NEW YORK – September 9, 2010 – The highly anticipated return of Syfy’s critically-acclaimed series Caprica will come even sooner than anticipated. The second half of season one will now premiere on Tuesday, October 5, 2010 at 10:00PM ET/PT, the channel announced today. Fans will no longer have to wait until January to watch the series exciting kick-off, as the citizens of Caprica deal with the chaotic aftermath of the mid-season finale’s harrowing events. The second half of season one will transport us from stunningly vivid, twisted Virtual realities to the fascinating outer worlds of the 12 Colonies. Along the way, revolutionary tensions rise, family power shifts and our characters grapple with the physical and emotional consequences of their questionable decisions. As the season races towards its stunning conclusion, each episode lays the groundwork for the inevitable (and brutal) clash between the new Cylon race and its human creators. “Though we initially announced the January return of Caprica, we still had hopes of finding a way to get the series back on the air sooner,” said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, Syfy and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions. “We’ve been able to successfully re-work our schedule, and are thrilled to bring the show back during what is traditionally Syfy’s most-watched time of the year. The outcome should also please fans who expressed their wishes for a shorter mid-season hiatus.” Caprica stars Eric Stoltz (Daniel Graystone), Paula Malcomson (Amanda Graystone), Esai Morales (Joseph Adama), Polly Walker (Sister Clarice Willow), Alessandra Torresani (Zoe Graystone), Magda Apanowicz (Lacy) and Sasha Roiz (Sam Adama). Caprica will immediately follow new episodes of Stargate Universe (Tuesdays @ 9PM). The third season premiere of Sanctuary will now launch in its former timeslot on Friday, October 15 at 10:00PM ET/PT immediately following Friday Night Smackdown on Syfy at 8:00PM ET/PT. Produced by Universal Cable Productions, Caprica is a prequel to the award-winning series Battlestar Galactica, and is executive produced by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick. Jonas Pate serves as co-executive producer and director. Universal Cable Productions creates quality content across multiple media platforms for USA, Syfy and other networks. A leader in innovative and critically acclaimed programming, UCP is the studio behind USA's Royal Pains, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Psych, In Plain Sight, Covert Affairs and Facing Kate, as well as Syfy's Eureka, Warehouse 13 and Caprica. The studio also produced the long-running series Monk and Battlestar Galactica. UCP is a division of NBC Universal. Syfy is a media destination for imagination-based entertainment. With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (www.Syfy.com), and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities. Originally launched in 1992 as SCI FI Channel, and currently in 96 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBC Universal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. (Syfy. Imagine greater.)

    Let BSG and all it's related spin-offs die. Caprica had potential but was a bore. Ron Moore has already moved on to other things. I tried to get into this, and appreciate it on its own merits, but the zeitgeist has passed on this matrix, brave new world wannabe

    And to Patch, and anybody else that want to give up on Caprica because your attention span rivalls that of a 10 year old with learning difficulties: We have the opportunity for some real heavy science fiction storytelling, so please give Caprica a chance to show us what it's made of. If you want TV that will only deplete your brain cells slightly slower than Alzheimers disease, there is plenty out there. If you want to prove to network executives that you're not a drooling idiot, stay tuned, and maybe we'll get more quality television with real ambition in the future.

    by bullet3

    Its frustrating because the setting, and all the details of the different worlds are perfect for an awesome hard science fiction story, but the actual characters and story on the show are terrible. I almost wish they would just forget about all this continuity and do short stories within this world or something. Show me a detective story set in new caprica, or in virtual reality. Do SOMETHING with it! Because so far it has been extremely pretentious/boring. I'm watching on the potential of the show and not the quality itself.

    by Setesh

    it is my hope that Caprica's producers have used the mid-season hiatus to look closely at how they structure and fit the episodes together, what has worked and what hasn't worked, and will relaunch the show with some energy and verve behind it.<br>I really hope that Sci-Fi hasn't cut that process short just to bring episodes to air now because fans like me want to see it. It's a tricky line to tread for something that has Caprica's complexity. BSG got away with it because of brand recognition and and easily definable basic premise of military types vs. evil robots. We know that the crew of Galactica had an objective: survive for the sake of the fleet. The complexity and grey morality that I loved about BSG was a slow build from simple(r) beginnings. It will take any show a while to find its feet, and I hope that Caprica knows what it's about to do. <br>Nipple Effect, it seems you've only got one joke that you've already repeated, so STFU and get back on your meth pipe.

    Loved BSG. DOnt understand whiners who say it had a bad end.

    by Hint_of_Smegma

    Thought it made complete sense and the whole 'giving up technology' while somewhat unsatisfying was meant to be a blanket allegory - they quite obviously didn't give up all technology, they kept the Raptors as shown. That said, Caprica I was really looking forward to but it's been conpletely unsatisfying, and I ended up turning off to it three episodes before the break. Just can't care about it. Seems like such a wasted opportunity. Can't say I'll be tuning back in - I'll wait to see if this next part of the story actually accelerates into what BSG fans really want to see - the Cylon uprising and war. If it starts getting better feedback I'll try it on dvd. at some point. When I've got free cash and no other dvd's catch my eye. Maybe.

    I watched every episode, but

    by funkylovemonkey

    the only reason I'm sticking around was the staff of writers was shook up after the initial half season of episodes. I'll give it another chance. Jane Espenson was already, in my opinion, a wildly uneven writer (she delivered the by worst episode of BSG by far), so I was a little mystified by the choice to put her in charge of the writing room. I still am. She showed an inability to focus the plot or really utilize the show's potential, and there was no real vision for the overall course for the show. It essentially treaded water for eleven episodes... there were a few good character moments, there were some nice nods to a broader universe, but those points were overshadowed by simply under-utilizing the real potential of the show. As far as scheduling this doesn't surprise me, last week Doug Drexler posted on his blog they had just finished shooting Caprica's finale. I have to say though that dispensing with the year long hiatus nonsense and bringing on Bryan Fuller to do his own show has me a little optimistic about the direction Syfy has taken the last few months.

    Unfortunately...

    by WeylandYutani

    Caprica is a real misstep IMO. The Mafia/Industrialist family saga is interesting, but the CW-Teen-Angst stuff is a bore. They should get rid of the kids entirely and focus on the political intrigue aspects of the series. <P> As for that clip, what the hell is with the Clockwork Orange style droogs? That's not just bad writing, but bad writing that actually rips off Kubrick - and don't tell me that it is some kind of homage, because there is absolutely no reason they needed to be dressed that way. It is distracting and does not seem the have a point (unless there is more context revealed in the actual episode). <P> BSG was very well done, even if there was an awkward story moment here and there. But overall it was satisfying. Caprica is mediocre TV.

    by Hint_of_Smegma

    ...I'm not interested in reading the same things I've read already. It didn't work for some people, that's fine. It wasn't perfect, that's fine. To me it worked and I can see it as it was obviously intended, as opposed to how so many people took it so literally just to tear it down despite the fact that so many of the actual plot points existed all the way through the damn show thus making the ending the only logical end, if somewhat heavy handed in the writing... Not interested in the opinions of other people especially when so many of the complaints seem to miss the point. I loved it and it counts as one of the great TV endings to me.

"I think they should have been from the future, because people from the future could mate with Earth's humans & have dogs & cats, but people from the past couldn't". Wtf??

    Excellent News

    by newkie brown

    These extended hiatuses are fine when you've built up a loyal fan base; Galactica did it, and Breaking Bad is going to be off the air for a full year by the time it returns next July, but Caprica was trying to get away with pulling that shit after just 10 episodes. If they learn nothing else from the big networks' short-sighted traditions, SyFy should learn that chopping and changing pisses off the viewers bigtime.

    I will give it another go

    by theGoldbergV

    but the first 10 episodes were mostly plodding and terrible. Its not that it requires patience, I like that in TV shows, its that the characters are just bland. The central concept of the girl in the cylon body just doesn't work as well as the Baltar/inhead6 dynmaic from BSG either. Unless they significantly up their game I won't stick with it as (like most prequels) it hasn't justified its existence as of yet

    Opinion

    by Affleckwasthebomb

    talk backers have real issues with understanding what an opinion is. There is nothing that is universally good or bad, it's opinion. Anyway, I watched all of Caprica and I'll probably watch the rest. It's not as good as BSG but I think it's got potential, which is what has kept me involved. I just want to see where they take it. If the second half is like the first half though I may have to miss the second season, if there is one. I can only wait so long for it to get as good as it can be.

    The 2nd Half of Season 1 of Caprica

    by photothatdodo

    Board meetings will be called. Minutes will be read. Sales figures will be debated. Portentous threats will be understatedly alluded to. Coffee will be served. Daniel will be contemplative and quiet at dinner with Amanda. Amanda will be sane at dinner and stereotypically crazy when talking to the nun. The nun will continue to believe fervently in a religion we will know nothing about. Joseph Adama will continue to be a boring hypocrite with overwrought mood swings. And the killer robot that portends the doom of man, having failed to escape a lightly guarded suburban house through its dastardly plan of...wait for it...internet dating... will probably fail to escape using its 'stealing daddy's car' strategy. I really want to like it, and I like the idea that there's a drama that leads to the first Cylon war, but I don't like it that there's a slow corporate melodrama that leads to the Cylon War. It's like finding out that Dallas is actually the prequel to The World At War.

    Am surprised to find quality material like that in a place like this. Love your writing, except that you have ignored small plot details like Amanda's suicide. She'll only be talking to the nun through a force ghost projection, and meanwhile Daniel's arch enemy will be humping her digital projection no end.<p> The cylon Zoe doesn't need to try all that hard to 'escape' in the real world. She just needs to learn how to hack computers, send emails and manipulate copies of herself. Eventually she will work out that she can just take control of a viper and fly the hell out of dodge.<P> Sadly, this will probably happen after the show is canceled.

    by Klytus_I.m_Bored

    I've heard over the past 6 months or so that the producers want to move quickly to the Cylon war and that the second season may have some kind of BSG cameos in it. Thing is, I can't remember where I heard it (here or maybe io9) so my strong suspicion is that it's just fans' wishful thinking. Caprica is so deadly dull and is doing so poorly in the ratings that it seems possible that the bean counters at SyFy might want to push the writers to "speed it up a little" and get to the shit that everyone wants to see - the Cylon War. I have no idea if there's any truth to this though.

  • Sept. 10, 2010, 1:20 p.m. CST

    And by the way

    by Klytus_I.m_Bored

    What is with writers/producers picking the least interesting shit in the backstory of existing films or series? Lucas gave us an 8 year old kid instead of showing us the Clone Wars. Moore et. al. gave us this boring mess that takes place before the awesome shit. Jesus Christ why would you have a boring show like this instead of setting one during the Cylon conflict? I know it has to do with cash (easier to shoot an earth-bound show than a space-bound war story) but god damn. I'd rather a moderate-budget two-night miniseries set during the Cylon war (maybe culminating in the arrival of the Final Five) than this ponderous, boring dreck.

This could be simple mismanagement of other projects they had planned for the fall--not ready, behind schedule, etc., and they just brought Caprica forward because it has been "in the can" a long time already. The delay to 2011 was STOOOOOOPID. I hope this is a sign of smarter people being placed in charge. I really hope so.

    The only good thing about this is the musical score

    by TheWaqman

    by Bear McCreary. Still doesn't hold a candle to his work on BSG though. Best music on TV since...well ever for me. Shits all over Giacchino's work for Lost.

    Will Capirca be less like going to the dentist too?

    by Hesiod2k7

    I quit that show after like, I dunno, six eps. It was just too frigging lame.

    Chromedomeous Maximus!

    Very insightful. I had not thought of that. :-)<p>My thinking is that a company like Comcast is all into acquiring product to fill that 24 hour block that is cable (probably a big reason for going after the network/studio). IMHO if there is product ready to go, Comcast likely would want it on the air sooner than later which affords them time to develop the projects they really want.<p>But your thinking sounds more like the Syphy that "we all know and" -- ahem -- "love."

    Galactica was great

    by KurtBarlowsDentist

    ...for two seasons. <p> First season, good. <p> First half of second season, good. <p> Second half of second season, weak. <p> Season three - terrible. <p> First half of season 4 - pretty good. <p> Second half of season 4 - pretty weak.

    Oh, and "Pegasus"

    by KurtBarlowsDentist

    ...was the single best TV episode I can recall from the last ten years.
