I know that most saw the 2-hour movie months ago, but I saw it for the first time last week on the syfy channel. It was okay, but tonight's show was better, IMO.

So Zoe's mom, now that she knows Zoe had a boyfriend and had the emblem for the terrorists, now believes that she was one and the cause of the explosion. I don't know how she felt that would make it better. Less guilt for her? This way it was Zoe, and not herself that caused Zoe to run away.

Watched the two hour pilot last night. I'll have to watch a few more episodes before I can decide if I like it. I didnt think it was all that good. After seeing the quality of acting and story in Galactica, Caprica seemed like a step down.

Daf, I wasn't thrilled wit the 2-hour pilot, but the actual first run episode was better. At least I have more hope for this show then SGU. Caprica people are BSG people and hopefully will know what they are doing.

My problem is that with The Plan, I loved learning what was planned, how did it happen, why did it happen, etc. It answered questions for me. So far with Caprica, there is one thing that is interesting. I remember when BSG first got started, the first or second season, I remember saying what if we are all cylons. Well that is more or less what happened. What is coming across to me so far with Caprica, the cylons came from humans. Zoe is the prototype, whether an avatar or not, that is human. I just don't know how far they can go with it.

Teryl Rotherly and Peter Wingfield were on the show. It was nice to see them once again.

I just don't know how far they can go with it.

I was hoping that they would deal with how the war started but there is big span of years to cover - if I recall, the beginning of the pilot said it was 53 years before the Fall and the beginning of Galactica was set 40 years after the First Cylon War ended, so there are 13 years to cover before the Cylons rebel (depending on how long the war lasted).
I'm hoping that the show will continue for a few years and end where Galactica started.

The text said 58 years, not that 5 years matter.

Oh, and like I said on Unarchived...
