Esai Morales

After three years in prison on a drug conviction, Enrique (Esai Morales) is coming home to the Bronx and to his family. It wasn’t his first time in the joint, but he intends for it to be his last. He returns home to his wife Angela (Judy Reyes) who seems emotionally distant and his son Michael (Harmony Santana) who’s also changed quite a bit in the past few years. It’s not quite the homecoming Enrique expected, and he immediately tries to take control of the situation in the only way he knows how… by demanding it. But with the added stress of a parole officer (Isiah Whitlock Jr) just waiting for him to screw up, his every move could be the one that sends him back to jail. His wife’s secret affair eats at his manhood, and his new boss at a low-wage kitchen job treats him with disrespect and disdain, but it’s his son’s refusal to meet his masculine ideals and expectations that challenges Enrique the most. Michael’s lost interest in sports, hangs around with a less than manly crowd, and seems to be hiding a double life. A double life as a teenage girl named Vanessa. Michael is a transsexual in the preliminary stages of moving from a male to a female, and he meets regularly with an older woman who’s been down that path and provides him with medication, encouragement, and incredibly uncomfortable-looking injections to plump up his ass cheeks.

Editor’s Note: In a fevered rush to get straight to the movies he loved, intrepid reviewer Robert Levin didn’t write an intro. In fact, he might not even believe in them.

All in all, Caprica held steady with another satisfying episode. Lacy persuades a friend of the Mag-Lev bomber to help her transport Zoe’s avatar and its massive, metal Cylon shell to Gemenon, showing that she isn’t as timid and oblivious as she may have seemed in the past; snooty Daniel Graystone is roughed-up and emasculated in an alley by the Adamas, something that brought great joy to my life, even though the guy didn’t “technically” deserve it; and Patton Oswalt plays Braxton Samo, a talk show host, cracking wise at the expense of the disgraced Graystones.



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.



I’m a huge fan of the Sci-Fi Channel’s Battlestar Galactica reboot… as should be anyone with a taste for quality action, drama, character development, and eye candy.


Casting for the upcoming “Battlestar Galactica” prequel “Caprica” has begun. This could possibly ease the utter sadness felt by die hard “Galactica” fans as the series’ final season wears on.
