Casting has started for the BSG prequel. As sad as I am that BSG is ending, I'm glad we're getting Caprica.

Esai Morales has been cast as Joseph Adama (Bill's father) and Paula Malcomson (who played Trixie on Deadwood) has been cast as Amanda Graystone.

Here's some more interesting character info.

I like the sound of it.
Intresting way to start the Cylons with Zoe-R wonder what she'll look like and surprised about the suicide stuff could give it some BSG depth.
Hope this series eventually lend up to the 1st cylon war.

A BSG prequel? That's awesome! While I was glad that they're ending the current show before it gets stale (like so many other shows do) it's great that they're going to keep going with a different time period. I hope we get to see the guy who played young Bill Adama again a few seasons ago (when he was Husker). He was fantastic!

They've already shown the retro '80s Cylons in the new show, so they'll probably use them in Caprica. However I'd like for those to be intermediary and there's an even more primitive version in the beginning.

I don't know about this show. I LOVE BSG, but I love the philosphical/religious undertones of the show and their search for earth. With caprica, being no humanoid cylons and no need to find earth, don't know if I'll like it as much.

On second thought...this is a good concept


I can see the first Cylon as a skinjob, if it was created as a civilian initiative.. Why would a civilian create a toaster? Later, the millitary gets a hold of the technology, and they create the toasters with the neural dampener thing.

Sick Boy 82
05-12-2008, 08:57 AM
They didn't have the techinology at first to create skin-jobs. The first was probably a C3P0 styled of helper robot. I'm sure that after the military got ahold of the design, they turned it into the Centurions. And if I am correct, didn't the skin-jobs only appear in the new BSG series??

Well, apparently if you read the article about Greystone's daughter


[ZOE GRAYSTONE / ZOE-A / ZOE-R] 16 going on 40 (18 TO PLAY 16), with severe hair and makeup, Zoe is the daughter of Daniel and Amanda Graystone, and she's a girl with many secrets. A computer genius like her father, she has found a way to enliven a holographic avatar of herself, by uploading all her memories and DNA into the hologram, thus creating her online twin, Zoe-A. A closet monotheist in the polytheistic culture of Caprica, and obliged to perform her religion in private, she tries to leave the planet with her boyfriend, Ben, only to be killed when Ben suicide-bombs them both into oblivion. But Zoe-A is left behind, a baffled, grieving digital duplicate of the real, flesh and blood Zoe. With the collaboration of Daniel and Joseph, Zoe-A is downloaded into a robotic brain, thus becoming the first Cylon: Zoe-R...SERIES REGULAR - SUBMIT ALL ETHNICITIES..

While not a flesh and blood skinjob, seems like a robotic version, at least looking human

I think Caprica has a lot of potential. Moore isn't going to let it be some sub-par rip-off. It'll be interesting to see the birth of the Cylons. And I really like that Morales is playing Grandpa Adama.

The Hybrids eventually became the Skin-Jobs we all know and love today. 6 and 8 :drool:drool

And for the win:

In his Battlestar Galactica Podcast, Ronald Moore explained that the Hybrids should be considered a "Model 0" of humanoid Cylons, an intermediate step between humanoid and mechanical model Cylons.

Pix and we were trying to remember if the "hybrids" in Razor were these Model 0 or another model of skin-jobs. BUT, I think with what you said, that in Razor it was the Model 0. Wonder if they all were prophetic like in razor and in the last episode

Sick Boy 82
05-12-2008, 10:22 AM
Well, watching Razor, the Hybrid there was much less prophetic and talked in real sentences most of the time. It wasn't all gribberish like the Hybrids now. I wonder if something happened to them the more human the hybrids became. I did love in this last episode where the Hybrid snapped out of her craziness and said all that crazy ^^^^ to Kara!! That was awesome!!

It was an open question to all. I remember from the trial episode that the laywer said that Lee's grandfather was a "bastard" so I can see him being involved with the creation of the cylons. BUT, a laywer being involved, I don't really see how that connects him.

So, um. . . with the recent debate about the Wolverine workprint. . . yeah. . haha. Don't know how they thought they could keep this under wraps till 2010.

It starts off kinda weird. . .no, scratch that, REALLY weird, as in "Where in the hell are they going with this?!?!" but, it's definitely cool to see all the pieces fall into place.

And they don't mess around with showing you the first Cylon. Don't know what else they could do with this past 2 seasons or so, but whatever. And there's no way it's a coincidence that the missing Cylon Daniel shares a name with the inventor of the Cylon.

Wow, Dled the pilot. Was really suprised at all the nudity and stuff in the beginning.

I thought it was really great and can see how this leads up to everything we know about the cylons.

Zoe is definitely the first Centurion that becomes aware and could be the whole reasoning to the first Cylon War.

And I guess we see where Daniel, the favored, comes from.

Sweet!!!!

I think it's a really cool way to take the show. Hell, they could take it all the way up until the Cylon-Human war and I would be happy. Maybe this series will make it past 4 seasons, cause that would be awesome!!!!

Josette
04-19-2009, 06:30 AM
But maybe they can get a better stable of pure actors than Sackhoff, Helfer and Park ( all really beautiful women, just not exactly the best actors in the world)

I thought Helfer and Park were excellent, as well as beautiful. Park really grew into her role, and I think Helfer was always very solid. But that's just me.

Just watched it....

Kind of a combination of "Strange Days" and "AI" meets "Galactica"....it clocks in at around 90 minutes and parts of it do feel a little rushed.

It does have that TV pilot vibe, you know the one where by the time it really picks up the story it's over...til next week sort of feeling. The whole "Club V" opening scene won't make it onto regular TV...way too much of, well, everything for that...

It's not bad, but it's not "Galactica". It will be interesting if they can spin a series out of this though....

This is exactly how I feel, but SG Universe was hit or miss with me too. One episode would be really great only to be followed the next week by a "filler" just to keep it moving along.

~~The Caprica premiere was nothing like what I expected and I had to check the channel after the first couple of minutes. I like where they were going with it, but didn't like how they started it and went with
the religious concept.I know BSG was full of the maker/creation vs God (s) idea, but this seemed to take it to an almost conspiracy theory attitude which I'm not getting a good vibe from.

Guess I'll just have to give two or three more episodes a chance before I give a thumb up or down.

I'm afraid Caprica isn't going to last. The premiere didn't have the same presence that BSG has.

With tonight's Caprica I'm struggling to remember the character's names....the Adams'... I mean Adamas.

Yeah, Adama's age didn't add up to me, either, unless Capricans and other humans from the Colonies have longer lifespans than on Earth.

Loved some of the concepts from the pilot such as Zoe creating an advanced avatar of herself, and how that ends up being incorporated with initial Cylon technology.

Show looks promising. I'll be patient and see where it goes. The quality seems to be on par with BSG.

Hopefully the show will still pop for some of the SFX that BSG had if things progress to the 1st Cylon War, etc. ...

They said if I remember correctly it takes place 58 years before the fall of Caprica, and "Willie" is in 3rd grade - so around 8 or 9; that would make him about 66-67 during BSG.

I have to wonder if that actress is a lot older than she looks. If this show goes for 4 years, she's not supposed to change at all and it seems as if she's got a lot of growing still to do.

I have to admit that I'm very fuzzy on the end of BSG, but weren't the skinjobs on old Earth for centuries before creating the cylons in the colonies? I'm really unclear on how cylons can just be created half a century before the events of BSG.

LOTRFan
02-01-2010, 11:57 AM
The 13th colony were all cylons and went to found earth, there was some form of nuclear war (what the crew of BSG finds) and the final five were all that were left because they had developed resurrection and had a resurrection ship orbiting earth. They then went to warn the colonies of their potential for suffering the same fate; but when they arrived the First Cylon War was already underway. Their arrival however marked the end of the First War.

And Cavil (the #1) wiped the others' minds so that they wouldn't remember the 5.

we just watched the first 2 episodes last night... or two part pilot. whatever it was.

we LOVED it. Great to see they've kept the quality of BSG. Wonderfully put together, beautifully shot, incredible music (Bear McCreary again)... and I love the story. It's totally gripping.

I loved how when Zoe got downloaded into the Cylon body... you could see it slowly start to 'come alive' ... moving... almost breathing.... as her conciousness filled it. Wonderful stuff.

fingers crossed for a long run :rock

I liked the finale quite a bit - but I don't think you can say the cast was cut down. We didn't see what happened to one person. In fact Barnabas because a more significant character (go Spike!). Only one cast member looks like they got their pink slip.

darthviper107
03-27-2010, 03:02 PM
Ms. Graystone is probably dead (although we didn't actually see her die, she is in the show intro so they'd have to change that if she died).

She's the only main character, but Sister Clarice's husband died in the car bomb most likely, and Zoe-bot accidentally killed that techie guy.

I agree. Especially after they went to great pains to mention that most people who jump off that bridge don't survive. I think she's dead. Or... Possibly in a coma. Which would give a grieving Daniel a chance to copy her memories and build a new version into a new Cylon...

They didn't use memories to create virtual Zoe--she said she just used all a data that she had available to create a personality, like looking at receipts to see what type of person someone is.

Zoe is unique in that she created herself. Daniel created Tamara using that method and could do the same for his wife or Zoe could do the same for Philo.

I'm not reading any of your spoilers despite wanting to :lol

We just saw the episode where Daniel was trying to get Zoe to show that she was inside the robot - omg what an amazing episode that was! So tense... and brilliantly acted. The whole episode could've just been the scenes with those two in and I'd have been happy.

I love this program. Acting, music, art direction, writing... everything. The 'feel' of it, is just GREAT!. Love it!

Yup. Seems to go along with it. I remember the first time I noticed this with BSG...I was shaking my head why they would do this to us in the middle of a season. Its bad enough when we have to wait between seasons 3 and 4, but when they break up the seasons and give us gaps in season 3 it just seems that they ran out of ideas or filming time.

Darklord Dave
03-29-2010, 11:46 PM
The normal order for an untested series is 13 episodes. The network won't order more episodes unless the series is successful. Since they won't know if it's successful until at least 6 or 7 episodes air, there can be a gap while they ramp up and shoot the back 9. (That's what it's called when a network orders the balance of a season to make the traditional 22 episodes).

saw the mid season finale - wow

This is fast starting to overtak fringe (or at least catch up to it) as my favourite show. I just love the feel and the mood of it all. McCreary's music in those final scenes building up to the end was just phenomenal. So emotional and powerful.

I really really hope this gets a long run.

So is it definitely coming back for the second half of the season? I know the commentator on the telly here (Sky1 in the UK) said it would be back in the autumn. Is this comfirmed?

ANd i don't supposed there's been any mention of a season 2? I'm sick of all the high quality shows getting cancelled, when rubbish like Andromeda (which I actually watched for a few years) gets to run for decades. ok maybe not decades. lol

darthviper107
04-01-2010, 06:41 AM
Yeah, the second half is definitely coming back in Fall.

As far as the second season--we'll have to see how things go after season 1 is over.


It'll probably continue--although it's puzzling, even BSG topped out at like 2 million viewers, which for any other show would be a failure, so I don't know how Caprica compares.

Did anyone catch the Caprica reference on South Park last night?

I watched S1 up until the hiatus and haven't been interested in continuing to watch. It's too bad because I really like BSG (even with the religious overtones) but Caprica is just a little too slow and disjointed for my tastes. Is it me or is everyone on this show really depressed and/or stoned? Even though I'm not watching anymore, I'll try and stay current with updates from this thread. I hope it gets better.

This is a series set before the first cylon war. Needless to say, that's what most of us would rather see. Cyber-nonsense and corporate boardroom intrigue just aren't doing it for me anymore.

RDM is off writing movies and likely has left the direction of the show's writing to Jane Esperson. It shows.

Scyfi returned the show early. I suspect they will show the remainder of the series and pull the plug.

The religion thing has always been the underlying theme of Caprica AND BSG.

But a pretty small part compared to the theme of depending on machines and materialism. These last two episodes are completely focused on a fake religion that doesn't need this much explanation.

BTW there's still that Blood and Chrome miniseries that they're doing, I think it was about Adama during the first Cylon war, and if it's successful enough they are thinking about having another spinoff series

I can't imagine anyone is surprised by this. When Sigh-fi brought it back early I think the writing was on the wall. Then they announced the new show the other day. Now they've finally taken this dog around the woodshed to put it down.

BSG dealt had drama and tension. There were BSG stories that would leave me shocked for the next day.

Caprica had


a cylon centurion with a crush on a boy. "OMG! Ponies!"

"My rival CEO want to force me to sell my sports team!!!"

Caprica Goodfellas.

Matrix rehash.


Yawn...

BSG had some problems during the last season. I don't like some of the things they did in the finale. But even when BSG had a weaker episode there was still something to make it worthwhile every week. I never felt like this show was building towards something. There was no Earth to find. There was no goal at the end of the story arc.

And please, RDM, get over the virtual reality fixation. It's so 90's.

When it went all "one true god" and suicide bombers in the first episode i was tuning out...as it went on it got worse :(..and when the Soprano's invaded that was it, i was done....

Ron Moore is a great writer/producer, he gave us some of the best episodes of Star Trek TNG and DS9, not to mention the best of the TNG movies...and of course BSG, a good re-imaging in a sea of rubbish "re-makes"...he sadly dropped the ball here :(

I thought the show was sluggish and had some rough patches, but the feeling that the arcs were moving toward something grand was there. Shame it was canned. I'd have loved to see the Caprica story intertwine with next year's upcoming BSG prequel (the other one).

Actually, just finished them--I recommend that for those who watched the show up until cancellation that you watch the last episodes.

There's some important things you learn, and especially in the last episode there's an epilogue that pretty much shows where everything would have gone if the show continued, it's pretty cool to watch. I'm guessing they added that when they found out about the cancellation

darthviper107
01-06-2011, 04:50 PM
I'm wondering if that's really what they planned for the show, if it is, then it makes most of the show irrelevant.

Except for Lacy's interaction with Zoe, her entire storyline has no point, it doesn't matter if she took out the STO, since the STO doesn't exist in the BSG fleet, any of that would have been destroyed with the colonies.

And I don't really like that they started with the human-form cylons this early, it makes it ridiculous that they never suspected them since there were some that people already knew about.

And I can't accept the idea that anyone would believe a digital clone of themselves would be the same as living forever (as the one guy said, he could upload their avatars at any moment and their death's are irrelevant)
