I was a huge fan of the original BSG from the moment I say it back in the early 80s. I flat out rejected the remake at first only to discover later when I did watch it that it´s one of the best shows I´d seen.

That´s why I went into Caprica with an open mind and without prejudice. It´s a good show, I do not see this as a soap, but here´s the thing. It would have work without beeing part of the BSG mythology. Maybe it would have worked better, maybe it would have last longer. Because it´s not enough BSG for the fans and to much of it for the casual viewer.

Ron Moore says in an interview on the DVD set that they basically put two ideas for a show together - one about Artifical Intelligence and one about the origin of the Cylons. And that´s how it felt. As I said, it´s a good series, I liked it, but the plot every now and then feels pressured to fit the BSG mythology.

Very sad this didn't last longer. There is so much they could have done.

Good series, albeit a bit slow to get going, but should have been given another series.
