Caprica’s Amanda Graystone – aka actress Paula Malcomsom does a fine role playing another tortured sole in Fringe.

But how did she come back from the dead in the first place? And why was the bomb blast enough to kill her? Was it really her destiny to save everyone on the train?

a bit odd, but hey we loved it.

As for Olivia (ann Torv) doing the Leonard Nimoy William Bell voice — that’s kinda cool…but werid how she’s interested in Astrid.

Caprica Apotheosis – Series Finale WAS AWESOME January 11, 2011

Yes we had some issue with Caprica as a series, but the final five episodes of Caprica were FANTASTIC.

We just finally watched the final two episodes and they were easily the best of the whole frakking series.

Shear brilliance.

And the ending was a real ending which makes us think that the show was originally just supposed to be 18 episodes long..

IT was a total shock that Willy – the boy we thought for 16 episodes was the young Admiral — was in fact, not the Admiral.

What a twist.

And the whole killing that Guatraul thing – amazing.

Sarah Lacie as the holy mother of the monotheists – WOW.

But the best part of the whole show – and the series — was the transformation of the cylons and their apotheosis at atlas field. They saved humanity and became part of colonial life as a result.

And of course the ‘skin job’ version of Zoe …emerging from the same bath as the other skin job models of Battlestar Galactica.

no, not everything made sense…we still don’t know what happened to Tamra — and sister clarisse should have been put away…and we still think that Daniel Greystone himself was actually a Cylon too…but that will just have to remain a theory as Caprica is now done.

A fitting finale after 18 episodes and we can honestly say in retrospect, that the it was a fun ride. It ended at a good point and we got a real ending too.


Caprica Episode 14 – Caprica’s Dirty Cops November 27, 2010

Another fine episode — where we discover that the STO has a very highly placed mole in the Caprica police force.

the way the mole is discovered/exposed is really quite clever and the cinematography with the two woman walking on the path – which one will be killed? is stellar.

The whole STO drop ship thing with the mock attack was also amazing – we didn’t see that coming

Caprica as a show likely just needed time to mature — but the final five episode— so far – are really turning out well.

Caprica – Task Completed By Your Command November 27, 2010

Caprica may have been canceled but the final episodes have been avail in Canada and we’ve now had the chance to watch some of ’em. The entire season 1.5 dvd is out in December.

Episode 13 is one such final episode…

We finally see the Cylons used for the purpose they were intended – to kill humans.

Sam Adama is the first human to use the Cylons that way and he gets the best greeting a Battlestar Galactica fan could ask for.

Task Completed




Caprica CANCELLED – Blood and Chrome a GO!! October 28, 2010

Finally the frakking nightmare is over and SyFy has put Caprica out of its misery.

“We appreciate all the support the fans have shown for ‘Caprica’ and are very proud of the producers, cast, writers and the rest of the amazing team that has been committed to this fine series,” said Mark Stern, executive vice president of original programming at SyFy, in a statement. “Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, ‘Caprica’ has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season.”

Caprica had a great premise and a fine cast.

The problem was the fact that the story was too frakking slow and even after the 1.5 season re-started it didn’t get better. Each episode was more boring and tedious than the next.

Yes WE WANT TO KNOW how the Cylons were created and make war on the colonies.

YES we want to know what happens…but that now doesn’t seem likely to happen — on TV at least.

If we could get a book or comic book of caprica or heck even a made for TV move – The First Cylon War – we’d be happy.

Yes Caprica deserved to be canceled, but it does leave those of us that did invest our time in the show with a really empty feeling – in terms of plot direction.

Sure there were some basic connections to Battlestar Galactica, but just like Starbuck being an Angel – Caprica just didn’t make sense.

On a positive note – we will get some BSG action – Blood and Chrome another BSG prequel has been greenlighted by SyFy.

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, a sentient robotic race, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a brash rookie viper pilot enters the fray. Ensign William Adama, barely in his 20’s and a recent Academy graduate, finds himself assigned to the newest battlestar in the Colonial fleet… the Galactica. The talented but hot-headed risk-taker soon finds himself leading a dangerous top secret mission that, if successful, will turn the tide of the decade long war in favor of the desperate fleet.

Things We Lock Away
was yet another crappy episode – but a little better than the last one.

Sure Daniel gets control of his company back – woohoo – and Vergis falling on his own sword was good drama.

Beyond that?


The whole deadwalker thing was poorly executed – and the dream Zoe is nonesense ..reminds us of how Baltar and Caprica 5 saw visions. Was kinda neat how Zoe drew pics of Cylons as a child…kinda reminded us of how Starbuck drew pics of the Eye of Jupiter on BSG.

As for Sister Clarise and Mrs. Greystone – kinda neat .but again poorly directed and produced.

Caprica really sucks and gets worse every episode October 19, 2010

We just watched last week’s Caprica episode –Retribution and yeaah it sucks.

It took us sooo long to actually watch the show, because to be honest — we’ve got better things to do than watch boring crappy TV like Caprica.

Retribution was slow and pointless.

Yes, Daniel Graystone has sold his soul – ok we get it. And sure Sister Clarisse is a vengeful witch – but the way the show is put together we just don’t care. Somehow a brilliant concept has been destroyed by poor directing/production/pacing and acting.

The only reason why we keep watching the show is because  we want it to get better. We want to know the history of the Cylons and how they rise up against the colonies.

AT this rate though, that’s not likely to happen as it’s doubtful that Syfy will renew this drek for a second season.

Caprica – Unvanquished – so is Amanda Graystone dead or not? October 9, 2010

So Caprica is finally back – with –Unvanquished no this was not a fantastic episode.

First of all, it feels like we’re missing something ..in between the final episode of season one – before the 1.5 start – greystone still controlled his own company and Amanda Greystone jumped off a bridge.

Now Daniel lost his company – ok we see that..but how? and now whats the deal with the Tauron mafia?

Amanda Greystone is dead right? Sister Clarice is just visiting her in holobands…she must be right??

Overall, this was a boring episode with little to no action (blowing up the Caprica stadium was kinda neat) and the drama was disconnected.

Die-hard fans like will stick it out, but after such a weak premiere for season 1.5, we doubt this show will gain any new converts.

Caprica is back and this half season – technically season 1.5 – will see the Cylons join the mob.

In an interview with press, Sasha Roiz, the fine actor that plays Sam Adama gave up the details:

“I think you’ll see a lot of people interacting with Cylons,” Roiz said. “I think it’s
basically what we’re driving towards is the introduction of the Cylons into this world. And so it’s going to definitely cross paths with just about everybody’s storylines.”

ShowMeSciFi.com was also on the call with Roiz and we picked out the best bits in the clip below:

Yes we’re real excited for the start of the 1.5 season of Caprica in a few weeks. Syfy now has a few teaser trailers up …this one is our fav.

We all know where this is headed – Cylons becoming sentient and attacking humans..but it’ll be interesting to see how this all gets pulled back with the original cylons – the final five – from Battlestar Galactica.

Syfy – may the gods bless you!


Syfy has moved the return of Caprica up from January to October!!

That’s right, we won’t have to wait until 2011 for our Caprica fix.

“Though we initially announced the January return of Caprica, we still had hopes of finding a way to get the series back on the air sooner,” said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, Syfy and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions in a statement. “We’ve been able to successfully re-work our schedule, and are thrilled to bring the show back during what is traditionally Syfy’s most-watched time of the year. The outcome should also please fans who expressed their wishes for a shorter mid-season hiatus.”

Remember how season 1.0 ended…we’ve got a cliffhanger with the Cylon get blown up, Daniel losing his military contract, his wife killing herself……lots to look forward to in October!!

The other great thing is that Caprica will now be on the same night as Stargate Universe, with one show following the other.

So starting in October, Tues is now SYFY night for us!

Caprica returns in January – Proof that SyFy hates its fans July 22, 2010

What’s wrong with the management at SyFy?

This week they announced that Caprica would be returning for the second half of its first season — ok that’s good news – but that SUCKY news is that the second half of the first season won’t air till 2011.

What the FRAK is the point?

Why string fans on soooo long?

Haven’t the show already been produced?

Maybe in the change from SciFi Channel to SyFy they decided they had to make fans wait for stuff…then again the delay between half seasons of Battlestar Galactica was horrible too.

Frankly we just don’t get it.

Caprica – End of Line for Season 1, Amanda Greystone and Maybe the Series? April 5, 2010

The final episode of Caprica Season 1 before its mid-season break was easily one of the best episodes — if not the best episode – of Caprica so far.

Too bad the rest of the season has been sooo slow. It has been so slow that we taped this episode a week ago but only bothered to watch it now.

Big stuff happening all around in this episode – Amanda Greystone commits suicide – that was a shocker.

Joseph Adama’s assistant – the former doctor from Stargate SG-1 – turns out to be his helper in V-world and trick his daughter into killing him off.  That was powerful too.

Then there is the Cylon killing poor lab boy – another swift shocker.

All this going on with the backdrop of Greystone loosing the military contract. Great stuff all around, no shortage of drama and action.

Let’s hope that Caprica does come back and SOON. Currently the plan as we understand it is not to have Caprica return until the end of the year. That’s frakking nuts in our opinion. This show has just now started to gain real traction and we want more – alot more.

Caprica – Daniel Greystone finally realizes Zoe is a Cylon March 15, 2010

Man is Caprica a slooooow show. This past week’s episode The Imperfections of Memory did however fill on some key new dramatic points.

Joseph Adama has finally made it into V-world which is great, but we suspect they’re going to stretch it out until he actually finds Tamra  – maybe 6 episodes from now at the current sloooow pacing of this show.

And finally after all this time, Daniel Greystone has finally realized that the Zoe is the cylon — but only thanks to the dog.

Lots of depth to this show, but probably a bit too much complexity to make this show have a decent pacing.

Were it not for the Battlestar Galactica connection, we’d give up on this show – at least as a weekly concern. Watching two or three episodes at a time with the fast forward button ready to go is probably the best way to watch this show now.

Caprica – Know Thy Enemy – Vergis vs. Graystone who will win? March 8, 2010

Posted by showmescifi in scifi.
Tags: , , , ,

Yeaah Caprica is still a slow and plodding show. But its depth of plot complexity is interesting.

This week’s episode – Know Thy Enemy -didn’t include anything on Tamra Adama, which we were really hoping for.

Instead we get Vergis — the Tauron businessman that is now out to destroy Greystone — need stuff and kind of fun – though in a very civilized sort of way.

Of course Greystone will sell the Bucks to Vergis – just a matter of time right? But will it ever be tied back to Joseph Adama? we’ll see.

Oh and how about that neat little side trip – with Zoe connecting with Philomon on the holobands? cutesy but fun right?

Caprica is a slow show – but the last two episodes (5&6) especially this week’s episode There Is Another Sky really are helping to pick the show up.

The Greystone’s are now finally starting to build out the Cylon race – hurrah! since we suspect that Daniel Greystone is one of the final 6 cylons.

The whole Adama plot line is a bit weak – except for the resurgence of Tamra. We did not see that coming.

She goes from being this meek teenager that can’t feel her heart – to now being an invincible weapon in the holobands. Wow.  Yes Joseph Adama will find her and it will be…’interesting’

Eventually Daniel Greystone will have to figure out that the Cylon race is being driven by Zoe’s avatar too – or will he?

And of course — we still need to find out about the soldiers of the one.

Caprica’s Zoe Greystone aka Alessandra Torresani Gets (near) Naked for Maxim – but lots of airbrush support February 8, 2010

We’re still figuring out Caprica – and Zoe Greystone played by actress Alexxandra Torresani.

Torresani managed to find the time to pose for Maxim – in some of the most airbrushed pics we’ve ever seen. It’s not clear how much is actually the actress and how much is just photoshop.

Still – they’re great pics – though Zoe thinks she looks fine as a cylon – and if these pics are any clue she sure is one hot cylon.

Caprica : Who is Alpha? Soliders of the One February 7, 2010

Tags: , , ,

Third episode of Caprica – gives us more insight into the mysterious Soliders of the One (STO) – and their leader.


Is Alpha a Cylon? of course he is, because Daniel Greystone is a cylon one of the final 5 or final 7 – the missing link that Battlestar Galactica never showed us — though we know that there was a human-looking cylon called Daniel.

Overall a decent episode, lots of depth to it, Adama and his brother are interesting , but it’s the soliders of the one that are the key here..

New episode of Caprica is on Friday night and SyFy now has a sneak peak video up.

ummmmmmmmmmmm dumb question but aren’t trailers supposed to be exciting?

Caprica has potential, but unless this show kicks up the intensity a few notches it won’t live as long as its successor Battlestar Galactica

Caprica Rebirth – Zoey Graystone is a Terrorist February 1, 2010

Finally!! the first ‘real’ episode of Caprica – after the pilot movie. Rebirth was an interesting episode on many different levels — though it lacked the intensity of the pilot.

How could Daniel Greystone not put 1+1 together to see that the prototype cylon had the Zoey Avatar in it?

That aside it was cool to have the cylon/Zoe mix how she sees herself and how the world does.

The whole thing with Adama’s uncle – the Tauron crook was kinda neat too. The elder Adama had only a bit part in this episode though.

and of course the finale was solid – i wonder how Greystone’s stock will do now?
