Day 11 - A show that disappointed you
I have often talked about my love for Battlestar Galactica. I really liked the finale, I pushed through the odd episode, sure that the whole thing was going to be worth it, and it was. When watching TV with other people, I will often shout "don't trust him, he's a Cylon" when an actor from BSG appears. So, when they announced they were doing a prequel TV show, I was all for it. Add Eric Stoltz and I was even intrigued. I gave it a good college try for 4 episodes, including rewatching the 2-hour pilot because I thought I might have missed something. However, Caprica didn't have the same energy as BSG. Obviously the characters were different because it takes place several generations before the actual BSG characters. It should have told more of the story of how the different worlds were created, instead it went into the minutia of how the Cylons were created by a young girl who blew herself up in a terrorist plot. Yeah, I was just as confused. So I gave up. I really really wanted to like it, but just couldn't get into it.
