Trivia

In an interview on SiFi Talk, Alessandra Torresani stated that Paula Malcomson was so reluctant to do the angry scene that required her to slap Alessandra, that both she and the director had to talk her into it. When the scene was filmed, Paula was so angry, she accidentally tore out a chunk of Alessandra's hair extensions and slapped her so hard she had a hand print on her face for the rest of the day.

Thumbs up!
23 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If the show lives up to the pilot, I think you have the makings of real destination TV. I was not a fan of BSG's reboot only because it really became such a hopeless vision. I read all the reviews on how it was a post 9/11 Sci-fi world but it really didn't offer a solution only a dream of a solution. This prequel shows how dreams are perverted. In a very entertaining way, with a great cast. I'm there for the series. Eric Stolz was great. The CGI work was better than average for TV. I need to know more about the fedora wearing Taurons. Also why was there a Ramada on Caprica, as evidenced in the reflection in the coffee shop's door.
