From Amazon.co.uk

Spinning off from the massively successful Battlestar Galactica, Caprica is a prequel series, and an intense one at that. It’s not a requirement to have watched Battlestar to enjoy it, although inevitably you might get a bit more out of it if you have. Yet either way, this is ambitious science fiction, and all the better for it.

The first half of Caprica was rightly criticised for over-complicating things, and laying in so much back story that there was little here and now drama to enjoy. This second half of the season addresses many of those wrongs, as well as leading up to a tie-in with Battlestar. It’s surprising just how much plot the story manages to get through, while still managing to reach a satisfactory conclusion.

Caprica really speeds up in these episodes, and if you’re one of the many who was put off by some of the decisions made in the earlier parts, then do consider giving it another try. We won’t spoil story points here, because the show invests so much in putting them into place. But if you’re crying out for intelligent science fiction drama, that stretches a budget well above its limits, then Caprica might just be your show. The only shame is that there’s going to be just one season of it. Given the evidence on display in this lavish set, that’s a real pity. --Jon Foster

This is probably going to be one of the most under-estimated shows of recent years. I understand the reasons, but I also appreciate that Ronald Moore and company and company wanted to go for something which took a wider perspective than Battlestar. Whilst this means the first part of the season often appears slow, it seeks to introduce us to the various principal cultures of the 12 colonies along with their differences, desires and flaws, and this certainly pays off in the second set of episodes in this, sadly, single season show. The build to the final episode is excellent, and that episode itself is one of the best I have seen, marrying well into the larger canvas of the conflict to come. Well worth and look, and a valuable addition to the (contemporary) Galactica universe, with some solid performances and some splendid drama.

The 2nd part of Caprica season 1 is a definite improvement on the first half of the series. It is very sad to see that the execs ditched the show after it upped the anti and became a promising proposition. The plots of this season were faster paced and grittier a la BSG best moments, though there were some plot twists that didn't always make sense other than for dramatic effect.

The virtual reality and its effects on society were beginning to be explored more fully as were the political complexities of the 12 colonies. Another intelligent SF series bites the dust. So it goes......

Caprica, the prequel to BSG, from producer Ronald Moore was a truly pioneering work in the genre of science fiction. Because it was trying something new it had both its ups and downs. It was not just a story of the creation of the cylons but also an anatomy of the society which created them viewed through the lifes of some powerful individuals and their families but not only. We see a society with religious fanaticism and terrorism, a society of mass consumerism and powerful corporations,of organized crime, a society of corporation intrigue, of racial prejudice, we see different planets with different social systems (some of them poor and under dictatorship), a society with massive use of lawless virtual reality from the teenagers etc. And in the middle of all them is the creation of cylons not as a simple result of scientific progress but embedded in the complex fabric of a society.
But there were no space battles and explosions, no pointless action, not even much space. On top of that the history was really complicated not easy to follow.This was a series which demanded patience (not usually found in modern audiences)
The most important fault of the series was that its first part was rather slow and some of the characters seemed not to have much to do with the story. But the second part really payed up and it led to a big finale.
Unfortunately it seems that this kind of intelligent and unconventional science fiction does not have much of an audience and the series was cancelled. I don't know when and if such an attempt will be made again but i really hope so.

Just finished watching the series. In the context of Caprica being cancelled, I'd like to say that absolutely this show wasn't made for everyone. But Syfy and the money hungry operators only want dumb tv and the sad truth is so do many commercialised viewers, who for too long in their lives have been fed vegetable tv and cannot engage in anything passed Roseanne. I loved BSG and yes that included all that lovely action, but BSG's writers introduced a hugely complex sociological frame to the story. The whole cylon war was about that history and to quote: "This has all happened before, It will happen again". The writer of BSG also had his hand in DS9, which shouldn't suprise anyone considering how deep that became also. What happened to scifi fans that enjoyed a moral story? or a reflection on our society? why does it just have to be liquidised vegetables for babys too simple to enjoy real cuisine? I'm ever so glad I had the privilage to have digested this delight yet equally appalled studios cannot see beyond the dollar sign. It's why hollywood movies are absolute junk, yet world cinema have the fruits of discovery. Caprica and Ronald D.Moore are ahead of our time. And its 5stars, but clearly not everyone can fathom why.

I liked BSG , I really did, I watched it all on DVD , episodes and stand alones, in a few weeks of compulsive 'what next ?' viewing, right the way up until the writers painted themselves into a corner and tried to wriggle out with that ending ...

So I thought I'd give Caprica a go to keep me occupied on these cold winter evenings . I ploughed dutifully through vol1 on the grounds that it might improve after a poor start , and watched volume2 out of sheer meanness : well , I bought the thing , I shouldn't waste it ... I get the impression that the series was already in trouble by now , and the writers had been told to change up a gear and grab the audience with some spectacle and excitement .
Didn't work for me .

By far the best bit : the 'Re-Caprica' humorous sub 5 minute precis of the entire plot of vol.1 in the bonus material on disc1 most enjoyable ...save yourself several hours and just watch that !
