Seven ‘Caprica’ Clips Remind Us That Battlestar Galactica is Over


The email attached to the press release for the following clips had this to say: “Thank the gods. Just when you thought you were running low on BSG awesomeness…” No, anonymous publicist who wrote this press released, I am not thanking the gods. This does not make me happy. While I am excited about Caprica, I am also devastated at the loss of Battlestar Galactica, which aired its final episode this past Friday. And while it was a sweet release, bold and beautiful and the best possible send-off for the old girl, I still wish that there was more to come.

Alas, there will be a series called Caprica. Set 50 years before Battlestar Galactica, Caprica follows two rival families and their patriarchs – Daniel Graystone (Eric Stoltz) and Joseph Adama (Esai Morales) – as they compete and thrive in the vibrant world of the 12 Colonies, a society recognizably close to our own. Enmeshed in the burgeoning technology of artificial intelligence and robotics that will eventually lead to the creation of the Cylons, the two houses go toe-to-toe blending action with corporate conspiracy and sexual politics.

Caprica hits DVD on April 21, 2009 and is available for pre-order now over on Amazon.
