‘Caprica’ premieres tonight. Are you in or out?
The Battlestar Galactica prequel series Caprica debuts tonight at 9/8c on Syfy.
Tonight’s two-hour pilot movie is what was released on DVD last April. Many of you have undoubtedly seen it. I saw it back then, but have not yet gotten around to reviewing it. Look for that next week (now that I’m facing a deadline).
For those who have not seen the Caprica pilot, and might have been on the fence as to whether you were going to give Caprica a try, perhaps I can give you a nudge in the right direction:
Watch it. It’s very good.
You don’t have to have seen BSG to watch Caprica, and Caprica will not spoil BSG if you still haven’t watched all those episodes. It’s a completely different show, from top to bottom, with a different tone and feel. And yet it clearly exists within the same universe, with some similar themes.
I will have more to say about Caprica next week. For now, I just wanted to say: If you’re on board, great. If not, you can still get on board before the ship sails. And now you can do it for free (assuming you have cable), without buying the DVD. So add it to your weekly DVR recording queue.
Note: Please do not write spoilers of the Caprica pilot in the comments of this post. Thank you.
