Some 58 years before the events in Battle Star Galactica, a series of events bring two families together that will have an indelible impact on human-kind. Daniel Graystone is a successful entrepreneur having introduced major advances in technology, most notably the holopad that allows users to immerse themselves in a holographic world of their own designs. Joseph Adama is a Tauron refugee who has successfully established himself on Caprica and is a lawyer for the Tauron gangster community that paid for his legal training. Unbeknown to Graystone, his daughter Zoe has become a member of an organization that has monotheistic religious beliefs but is regarded as a terrorist organization by some, including the government.

This is the most intelligent and impressive sci-fi series pilot I have ever seen. The dialog is excellent and the acting superb. The show brings to the realm of sci-fi the quality and excellence that the Sopranos, Deadwood and The Tudors brought to HBO and Showtime.
I was a fan of the first couple seasons of Battlestar Gallatica however I felt that the show lost its way and proceeded onward for financial gain versus a commitment to excellence. Caprica begins much more intelligently and better-crafted than its predecessor, Battlestar Gallatica, did and with even better talent.
Eric Stolz and Esai Morales were excellent casting choices! They both bring a dignity and vitality to their characters.
I hope the show is picked up and we are privileged with several seasons of intelligent, dramatic and suspenseful sci-fi from this great ensemble.
