Trivia

The series was created from two separate ideas. In 2005, writer Ronald D. Moore and producer David Eick (who had made the remake of Battlestar Galactica (2004)) announced they were planning to make a spin-off prequel series called "Caprica" which was set at the time when humanity first created the Cylons. Although they had a vague idea of what the series would entail, they were too busy working on "Battlestar Galatica" to develop it further at that time. Some months later, a separate idea about artificial intelligence and using robots as slaves was pitched to NBC/Universal by Remi Aubuchon. Universal did not pick up Aubuchon's concept by itself but felt it would work within the realm of Moore's premise for the "Caprica" series. At Universal's suggestion, Moore and Eick then met with Aubuchon and their ideas were merged together. See more »

If you enjoy a decent 'hard sci-fi' check this out
10 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

After watching the rebooted Battlestar Galactica series I looked for something to fill the void and gave the series Caprica a go. Although I really enjoyed BSG, Caprica is also a really engaging story with brilliant acting.

If you are looking for a repeat of BSG then you will be disappointed. This series is completely different in tone, style and approach to the BSG universe. Instead of traveling space and battling Cylons you get a prequel series showing the development of cylons and a lead up to the 1st Cylon War/Apocalypse. This context of the show is set on the earth- like planet of Caprica instead of being set the ship/fleet of Galactica and the series Caprica is stronger as a result of this.

Eric Stoltz's acting is nothing short of superb. He portrays a father facing his demons and balancing the responsibilities of fatherhood and a demanding worklife. The special effects and props are well done, and add to the believability of a living breathing world and culture.

I don't know what else to say other than this show is worth checking out on itunes or DVD/Bluray if you are into well done hard sci-fi TV shows. This show is quite underrated and it is a shame that the show did not last longer than one season.
