    This is not your parents' Battlestar Galactica

    When I first heard of Caprica, I wasn't sure what to make of it. When I got it and watched it, I found I really enjoyed it. I agree with other reviewers that it would have been nice for this to have been filmed first, but after seeing the re-imagined BSG, I now see why they waited. I know this 2 hour premiere does not answer the questions from the series, but it leads us into that. We get to see the first Cylon being created, before they were even called Cylons. We get to see the beginnings of the "One God" religion that the Cylons held true to the entire BSG run, and we get to see life as it was on the colony worlds. This is a refreshing take on adding a brand new history into the legacy of BSG. I love the interaction of Esai Morales and Eric Stoltz after the accident that claims their daughters' lives. They are two men who gravitate towards one another for support because they have both experienced this horrific tragedy. I like watching the interplay between Lacy and the VR Zoe and how their friendship still shines through. Polly Walker's Sister Clarice does an excellent game of deceit and coersion of Lacy to bring her over to the Soldiers of the One. If you watch the deleted scenes, it brings the relationship of Zoe and Ben into a whole new light. It will be interesting to see how his avatar will play a role in the upcoming series, and what the reaction will be of the father to see the true Cylon Zoe moving around. It had me hooked from the beginning, and makes me want more of the series come January, 2010.

    Great Movie

    I wish that the creaters would have made this before "Battlestar Galactica," however, I am glad that they made this.

    "Caprica" gives great background into the creatation of the Cylons and can't wait until SyFy shows the series (hopefully).

    Informative backstory

    This prequel to BSG provides an insightful aspect to what transpires in that series.

    Caprica Pilot review

    [Disclaimer: I was a big fan of BSG, so purchasing and watching Caprica was a no-brainer.]

    Caprica is quite a change from the largely space-based BSG. As implied by the title, the story takes place entirely on Caprica -- but more than 50 years prior to the BSG storyline. As such, the story/plot can stand on its own, but there are a few elements that will be especially meaningful and appreciated by those who have watched any of the BSG seasons.

    BSG fans will recognize the Caprica setting from its very Vancouverish seaside scenery (remember Baltar's pad?). But the story is a bit more technocentric: sort of Terminator meets The Matrix, but with the familiar BSG nods to present-day earthly religious, ethnic and geopolitical struggles.

    I liked the overall "look" and style of the movie/pilot. My only real complaint is one that could just as easily be leveled at BSG: muddy dialog! This is simply bad sound engineering -- often there is too much background noise and/or dramatic music when characters are talking, and you have to turn the sound way up to make out the dialog. (In a few spots, even this is of no help because it increases the volume of the "noise" just as much.) At least with Eric Stoltz, you don't have the added complication of deciphering a British accent.

    Bottom line is that it's a good pilot, and I look forward to the spinoff (spin back?) series in 2010!

    The Fall Of Humankind As Space Opera!

    Use the Bible and the Apocrypha as inspiration, add space opera themes, current political circumstances and you've got the beginning of the re-make of Battle Star Galactica.

    Good Treatment of the Back Story of Battlestar Galactica

    It's well produced and reasonably well acted. The visuals are good and there is plenty of action. It is always a pleasure to see reasonably high quality science fiction.

    If you've seen the Battlestar Galactica series, you can see how this is likely to lead into that story line, but that doesn't detract from it at all. I do wonder what it would feel like to start with the Caprica series and then move to the Battlestar series.

    If I understand correctly, there may be more installments to the Caprica series. I think that three or so (total) would be about right, but of course that depends on the story line.

    I am now a new BSG fan.

    I have never watched an episode of Battlestar Galactica. I will now purchase all the seasons. I can easily watch this movie over again.

    Caprica excitement

    I am all ready to watch the series now! It is very different than the original Battlestar Galactica but still will be just as mysterious and exciting, with great charactor development.
