Nerdgasm: Caprica: Will it suck?

So the Sci-Fi channel has given the go-ahead for a BSG prequel “Caprica”.new_caprica_by_ratscape.jpg I’m glad we’ll see more of the world in which Galactica exists, but we probably wont see the Galactica herself because

  • A. the show is set 50 years before the events of BSG
    B. It’s a character driven drama.
  • Here is what Producer Ronald D. Moore had to say:
    “I’m thrilled with the chance to expand on the Galactica world and get deeper into the origins of the story we’ve been telling,” Moore said in a statement. “It’s also great to have a chance at doing a completely different kind of science fiction series, one that’s even more character-oriented and doesn’t rely on pyrotechnics to carry the story.”


    I know that the characters are really what drives Battlestar Galactica. But it’s because of what the characters are doing. They’re fleeing for their lives, building a new government and searching for earth.
    But “Caprica” will be set 50 years ago, and I’m just afraid it’s going to be boring.

    Oh and hey sci-fi guys? Can it with the prequels alright? there has yet to be a prequel made (with the exception of Episode III, barely) that didnt suck, bad.
    Star Wars, The Star Trek “prequel series” Enterprise, which is why I’m wary of a BSG prequel series.

    I’m not saying….. I’m just saying.

      Suck it will only if you expect it to be something it is not.

      Heh… mixed SF universes.

      Soap operas are character driven. 90210, Friends, Seinfeld are character driven. I imagine “As the World Turns” but, on Caprica.
