    Can't wait.

    by HoboCode

    I loves me some Caprica. Fuck the haters.

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 3:31 p.m. CST

    Still a little slow plotwise....

    by meCPS

    but the death of Tomas Virgis last week was a keeper!

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 3:40 p.m. CST

    This season of Caprica doesn't suck

    by johnnyangelheart

    Which counts as high praise for the SyFy network.

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 3:41 p.m. CST

    Lost me after the first season.. or break...

    by Unlabled

    Shit was boring. I'm all for space soap opera and I love Stoltz but shit was boring. I think the actress who plays Zoe. She sucks.

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 3:46 p.m. CST

    I'm digging it...

    by sfgeek

    The first 3 eps lived on my DVR until this past weekend, but I've been pleasantly surprised at the plot that is unfolding. I'm very interested and excited to see how the whole situation dealing with apotheosis and the toaster is going to shake out. I can see where they're going with it, but it is still a little fuzzy. If SyFy decides to cut bait and run I hope they at least explain the connection. And Zoe kicks ass. Love her.

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 3:48 p.m. CST

    Only reason I watched season 1.5

    by obriensg1

    Was because it was HD on Demand 6 months ago when I was laying on my couch with a broken ankle. It depressed me, but I didn't have to load the DVD player. I couldn't bring myself to continue watching this return. BSG was better, although Morales and Stoltz are good in their parts

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 3:54 p.m. CST

    great herc but...

    by JaredP

    what about a sons of anarchy talkback? the shows really getting good now

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 4:20 p.m. CST

    you would think fedora will make this show popular

    by DioxholsterOperationsOutpost

    sci-fi version of Mad Men. I guess people dont like serious sci-fi.

    Caprica Needs More Of This!

    by InActionMan

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 4:48 p.m. CST

    syfy's ego cost them with Caprica and SGU

    by ahdvd

    They though tthey were bigger than they are, and decided to show both series during the main TV season and went up against the major networks, and got their ass kicked for it. Both shows would have gotten 4 x the ratings if shown mid-season, now because of this both might be cancelled. SYFY KNOW YOUR PLACE!

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 5:01 p.m. CST

    Hoping its replaced by Blood and Chrome

    by Saen

    Get the Frak off my TV and come back when you have space battles!

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 5:19 p.m. CST

    Why do people hate it so much?

    by DioxholsterOperationsOutpost

    it looks and smells like BSG, i dont see the difference.

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 5:24 p.m. CST

    InActionMan---- yeah thats a good one

    by DioxholsterOperationsOutpost

    wish they make stuff like that for SGU

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 5:47 p.m. CST

    diox, the main reason caprica fails:

    by palewook

    Not one character is likable. <p> at the end of any episode, every character is so damaged or devious or lost, its impossible for viewers to relate to one character out of the cast.

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 5:48 p.m. CST

    DioxholsterOperationsOutpos you must not watch

    by MurderMostFowl

    I confess... i don't wantch anymore myself, so maybe it's changed, but the whole first season ( or first half whatever you want to call it ) was soooooooo boring. It wasn't BSG at all except for like 5 minutes an episode.

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 5:51 p.m. CST

    palewook is right

    by pishowda

    Well done

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 6:43 p.m. CST

    This show has so much potential if they start the

    by _Venkman

    Cylon War soon. Isn't the conflict over a decade long anyway? It'd segway into the new series well.

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 6:51 p.m. CST

    They know no one's connecting with the characters

    by ahdvd

    ...because at the beginning of every ep in the 'previously' they print EACH character's name on screen, not seen that with any show before, and it feels lame.

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 7:15 p.m. CST

    The plot is the creation of the Cylons

    by _Venkman

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 7:31 p.m. CST

    Why does scifi have to be action oriented?

    by Rebel Scumb

    I don't understand all the people complaining that this show sucks because there's no action. Why can't there be a science fiction drama?

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 7:56 p.m. CST

    Look at nearly ANY episode

    by Superponte

    Of Twilight Zone. Where are the space battles and action? That is probably the greatest sci-fi show ever made. Caprica is no TZ, but I enjoyed season 1.5 for what it was, and I find these recent episodes to be a large step forward. They just needed to get the whole thing moving a hell of a lot faster. I hope its not too late. I want to at least see the story resolved and the war started. As for Blood and Chrome? Most of these characters would still be alive at that point. Include them.

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 7:58 p.m. CST

    and I think SGU has been outstanding

    by Superponte

    this new season has been terrific.

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 8:43 p.m. CST

    Funny you should mention Twilight Zone

    by Rebel Scumb

    I just picked up season 1 on blu-ray a few days ago and have watching it steadily. I use to love this show when I was a kid but hadn't seen it since. Its even better then I remember.

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 9:08 p.m. CST

    I don't know ...

    by unfaithfullyyours

    I want to like this show so much, but I just feel like they're telling the wrong story. Unless all the V-world business eventually manifests to such an extent that you learn everything we saw in BSG was V-world and we get a whole new series with the old BSG crew in the "real" world. Yikes. That would be horrible. But seriously, I like the inter-planet politics, but the V-world business ... I just don't think it has any dramatic merit. They just haven't found the right story. But they're in so deep now, there's no way out without cutting it loose and starting over.

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 9:27 p.m. CST

    Caprica is still one of the best shows on tv

    by pax256

    Wish they'd count dvd and foreign sales into the numbers tho... I cant believe they cant make money with a smart show like this. Truth is geeks I know tune out of tv because so many good smart shows got an early end. The jungle like darwinian nonsense of short term ratings is killing the medium. I avoid investing myself into shows until years later now... I havent seen LOST or most of Supernatural yet because I didnt think they would survive and then havent gotten around to watching because I was too far behind in episodes... Movies are so much easier to follow and invest ones time and interest in.

  • Oct. 26, 2010, 10:50 p.m. CST

    FINALLY! A good new episode of Caprica.

    by zillabeast

    It's on the up and up, but with the NBA starting tonight, expect some nasty overnight numbers.

  • Oct. 27, 2010, 1:44 a.m. CST

    Render depths and depths rendered

    by Noocyte

    Think this show is maturing splendidly. It has a very deliberately dream-like pace (which *could* use tightening at points, to be sure) that is part of its tone. This is a risk, but suits the material so well I could scarcely imagine in moving too much more briskly and still being the same show. The complexity of characterization is given time to unfold, and that works for me. The CGI work by Zoic has me simply thunderstruck. It reveals a state of the art which is hard on the heels of the photo-real. Stunning!

  • Oct. 27, 2010, 2:40 a.m. CST

    Good episode

    by funkylovemonkey

    I was on the verge of giving up on this show, but I've enjoyed the last two episodes. I never minded the slow developing plot, it was more the feeling that the show was spinning it's wheels waiting for a plot to arrive. Loved the Cylon on Human violence.

  • Oct. 27, 2010, 3:22 a.m. CST

    FFS Change it ......

    by blackflowerX

    If this show gets another season (which would be surprising), they should get on to the whole Cylon War thing , the show has no direction , shit writing , and shit actors . <br> <br> It needs less cheesy "Matrix" action crap in V world ,and more story . Caprica could have been "I-Robot" meets "Mad Men" (like someone else here said) , such a waste...

  • Oct. 27, 2010, 5:31 a.m. CST

    A major improment tonight

    by InActionMan

    but I fear it is too little, too late. It looks like maybe they are beginning to find their voice. <P> The network didn't even bother to promo next weeks episode. They showed a promo for Sanctuary instead. I fear cancellation is imminent.

  • Oct. 27, 2010, 6:24 a.m. CST

    i would rather have a good Caprica than Cylon War

    by DioxholsterOperationsOutpost

    if they could get us into that bladerunner world and really grip us, wow. But war with cylons again? seems they will make it for the ADD demographic.

  • Oct. 27, 2010, 6:44 a.m. CST

    Great Episode

    by SonicRiver

    Shame that Caprica's cancellation is all but official what with the fact they are no longer creating new promotional materials like the caprican blog. The show is looking so good...

  • Oct. 27, 2010, 8:18 a.m. CST

    I'm really enjoying it now

    by Crumb

    BSG prequel stuff aside, it's just a very well written and acted little drama.

  • Oct. 27, 2010, 12:24 p.m. CST

    Who was the intended audience for this show?

    by gun_will_travel

    It's high-concept sci-fi, without a lot of action, and to the casual viewer you would probably need to have already seen the BSG series to get the most out of it.<p> No matter how good the show is, it was never going to find a big audience.

  • Oct. 27, 2010, 12:30 p.m. CST

    palewook You got it right

    by kedst1

    I commented a long time ago that none of the characters on this show are not likeable. They have very little or no redeeming value. Most soap operas have characters you love to hate. This shows characters are at best creepy in a bad way or just plain dispicable. The Cylon to be is your protagonist? How do you pull for a character that you know is going to lead human race being wiped out? How did SyFy get bagged into this show?

  • Oct. 27, 2010, 1:52 p.m. CST

    The root of Caprica's problem

    by InActionMan

    is they took a pilot script by Rene Aubuchon about Greystone that explored similar themes to BSG and grafted the Adamas onto it. The end result is the lack of focus that has plagued the first half of this season. <P> There are previews up on HULU and the SKiffy site that show improvement.
