Thumbs up Anyone seen the new SyFy series, Caprica?

It's quite heavy on the polytheism versus monotheism angle. It seems weird that an advanced society would worship multiple gods akin to ancient Roman society, but I'll give the writers kudos for being creative.

I don't want to give anything away, but the "creation" of the first Cylon was quite unsettling, especially if the story has sucked you in enough to be emotionally invested in who this "person" is.

What do you all think?

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
Do not taunt Happy Fun Car.

I was a big fan of the new (and original) Battlestar Galactica series...so YES, I enjoyed it. Looking forward to seeing more.

Totally forgot about it.
I'm still pissed they changed the name to "SyFy".

Soooooo lame.

I'm sure it's re-run a lot this week. I don't know what's up with the name change...when I first saw that, I thought it was a different channel.

They had an article about it. And I kid you not..they said they did it to make it 'edgier' and to make it appeal to 'younger audiences'.
I wish I was making that up.

I've never been able to get into that far-out stuff. What is so appealing about it?

It's not your typical SciFi Channel show. Doesn't look as low budget, and actually has actors that you've seen before.

It's a prequel/spinoff of Battlestar Galactica, which was great (if you like science fiction).

Yeah..if they wanted to change their image they shouldn't have change the name and just stopped showing their HORRIBLE "Original Movies".
