Presented uninterrupted and in Dolby 5.1 surround sound, the first season of the critically-acclaimed drama from Executive Producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick comes to a thrilling climax in Caprica Season 1.5. Fifty-eight years before the events of Battlestar Galactica, mankind is wrestling with the question of what makes one human, and sealing its own fate of certain destruction. Alliances are made, secrets are revealed, and lives are forever changed while the conflict between man and machine takes shape. As the season races towards its stunning conclusion, the seeds are sown for the inevitable, brutal clash between the newly-born Cylon race and its human creators.

When you can read between the lines you can see why it would have been cancelled even if it had managed higher ratings. Besides, who knows how TV shows are actually rated anyway. I have been watching TV for 40 years and I have never been asked for my opinion, and I have not met a single person in my life who has.
Also, it won an Emmy and was nominated for 8 others, but it was deemed too poorly done and unpopular to even finish the second season. Given the huge amount of absolute trash on TV, this seems a rather strange consistency.
Caprica was cancelled because it focused on themes the entertainment industry did not like. Foremost, it showed powerful elites behaving in a selfish and short sighted manner, and pointed out the obvious consequences of more and more sophisticated weapons, and using AI in a war context.
If that wasn't enough it took a huge swipe at the gaming industry, which is currently posturing to provide the just the type of virtual reality experience seen in Caprica to teenagers. The only difference is that the gaming industry will provide an even more toxic and violent product than the VR glasses in Caprica.
It would have been terminated no matter how good it was ..... it offended the people writing the cheques.
Caprica brought back memories of how foolish and naive the Original Battlestar Galactica 1978 was. Even as a preteen, I found it hopelessly unworldly and contrived. Adama and Baltar and the rest of the characters all behaving like in some third rate morality play. One thing you can believe, if we do open that particular door, the results are eventually not going conform to our expectation and the boundaries of good and evil.Read more ›
Hard to write a review without spoilers, but I'll do my best to not spoil this treat for anyone.
The last couple of episodes (especially) leave you almost gasping for breath. People you think might be dead or gone may not be dead or gone, people you thought you knew aren't who you thought, and some 1,000 watt lightbulbs go on over the head of the viewer. You may find yourself (at the end of the last episode) sitting with your mouth hanging open and then saying, "Ohhhhhh! NOW I get it!"
Great season-finisher, great cast, great characters (if not likeable, then certainly unforgettable).
If you enjoy sci fi soap operas, you'll love Caprica. It's not filled with fights and thrills like Battlestar Galactica, but Caprica will have you on the edge of your seat nonetheless, fingers digging into the arms of your chair.
Caprica, however, just shows a society of greed, murderous lunatics, terrorists, religious zealots. And the ending is just so stupid, so hastily put together. Yes, I understand the show was cancelled abruptly and perhaps they did not have enough time to develop the story. And I have to admit the special effects are quite amazing, but the story, well, that's just it. There isn't one. For me it was a waste of money. If you still want to see the show, my review can't really stop you but at least shop around for the best price or buy used where you can. I guess I was hoping for a show that would show me a glimpse of the Caprican society with all the good and evil. It really is such a hopeless, depressing show.

Simple, I just love Science Fiction.
Once we have finished with Caprica, quickly reach out for BattleStar GALACTICA.
