Caprica: Part 1 Review

Shortlived Battlestar Galactica spin-off lands


After the success of the Battlestar Galactica reboot, it’s no surprise that a spin-off was commissioned — though this probably isn’t what fans had in mind. Set 50-odd years prior to BSG, Caprica is a starship-free drama about two families: the Adamas and the Graystones. If you’re willing to see past the change in genre, there’s much to enjoy. This is the first half of season one, with the second to follow. That’s your lot, though — the show was cancelled and there’ll be no Season 2.
