Caprica: Season 1 Photos
Tv Season Info
Cast & Crew
Caprica is laced with enough subplots and dense, Battlestar-style intrigue that the new viewer will need to work to keep up.
It's not Battlestar Galactica, in that it swaps out the military components of that show for a bit of teen angst and soap opera intrigue, but I really like the lead performances by Eric Stoltz and Esai Morales.
Like Battlestar Galactica, this series promises to be rich with allegory.
Let's hope the pilot's spellbinding second hour points the way toward greatness.
Caprica manages to take on some daring themes with that familiar dedication to character and plot.
Who knows how I'll feel about it by season three, but right now, I'm entranced.
Caprica may have been one of the best pilots I've seen since the "Battlestar Galactica" miniseries...
Caprica may be starting off a little unevenly, but it's packed with such a wealth of great ideas that you won't want to miss a single episode.
Like Battlestar Galactica's profound philosophical questions about life, religion, technology, society, etc., Caprica kept in line with its running commentary on the current state of our world.
Caprica did a great job in terms of production value with impressive special effects and superb acting by an impressive cast.
We need a significant change; a twist to make this story feel necessary and gripping, because at the moment there are independently compelling ideas and a remarkable universe to play around in, but not much holding the seams together.
Audience Reviews for Caprica: Season 1
Oct 19, 2015From the creators of Battlestar Galactica comes the prequel series Caprica. Set 58 years before the Fall of the Twelve Colonies, the show follows wealthy industrialist Dr. Daniel Graystone as he works to develop a sentient robot based on a living avatar that his daughter created of herself before her death in a terrorist attack; meanwhile mob lawyer Joseph Adama, whose daughter also died in the terrorist attack, reconnects with his cultural roots. The casting is really good and they deliver some extraordinary performances. Additionally, the special effects and set designs are especially well-done, and give the show a unique visual aesthetic. Also, the writing does an impressive job at addressing sociopolitical issues such as scientific ethics, racism, and religious fanaticism. However, the storytelling is a little weak in the seasons second half. Caprica is a different kind of show than Battlestar Galactica, but it's still a compelling and provocative series.Dann M Super Reviewer
Oct 27, 2020Brilliant series, ahead of its time. If released on Netflix today, we would've had many seasons to enjoy. Guaranteed.
Aug 14, 2018because this 1 season still holds 19 episodes, we do get to see major character development and canon history in this prequel to BSG. exploring various technological aspects, with occasional religious and political scheming mixed in. overall this could easily have been stretched into 3 shorter seasons, and really deserved a longer run!
Sep 02, 2016My favorite TV show EVER!
Feb 13, 2016Delves much deeper than BSG into effects of the newly emerging Monotheist ideology on a world that respects and co-exists with multiple systems, personified by Polytheism.
Jan 24, 2016So much potential, so much time wasted in senseless scenes. I can see why it did not get a second season.
Jul 19, 2014It forgets to tell even a halfway decent story...
