Very Impressive!
17 April 2009 | by ryan-1237See all my reviews

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.
