The Battlestar Galactica prequel series”caprica” has officially been canceled by SyFy networks. The series set in the capital city of the colonial planet Caprica follows the troubled path of two families (the Graystones and the Adamas) and the creation of the first cylons.
I’ll be honest with you, Caprica is boring. The series presents a lot of possibilities in the world of “Caprica before the fall”. Unfortunately, they fail to pursue the truly interesting leads and the rest become heavy, boring and cliche. The entire storyline of the Monotheist STO terror cells brings Caprica a little too close to the real word. I am not interested in exploring Religious fanaticism and terrorism in my Science Fiction. That, combined with subplots of organized crime and corporate malfeasance? No wonder nobody wants to watch this show. Its just like everyday life in America.
It is unknown weather this decision to cancel Caprica will effect other planned BSG related series that were in development. But I hope that more action oriented “Galactica: Blood and Chrome” will eventually air.
