Top critical review
4 stars to show, but extremely disappointed that "Season 1.5" was merely what I knew to be the second half of Season 1.

NOTE: This review is aimed at anyone who originally watched Caprica (in Canada) on Netflix (when it was available).
I originally watched Caprica Season 1 on Netflix (Canada), and I liked it, so clearly my stars do not reflect my opinion of the show. In any case, after watching Season 1, I went ahead and watched the BSG remake (also a great show, by the way), and after finishing the BSG series, I felt like there was significant gap between Caprica and BSG. For me, a lot of questions remained on exactly how the final events of Caprica amounted into the society of BSG. I thought there was a ton of potential to bridge that gap, so amazon.ca browsing I go and there is (what I think to be) the answers I've been looking for: Caprica Season 1.5! Unfortunately, the Caprica episodes I originally watched on Netflix, labelled "Season 1", were actually in fact the whole series: Season 1 + Season 1.5
So, when Season 1.5 arrives (shipping was great as usual), and I open the plastic wrap with much anticipation, as I am super pumped to find out the mysteries of this universe, I notice that the last episode listed is "Apotheosis", which I clearly remembered as the last episode I watched on Netflix. I did not want to believe it; I hopelessly searched Google in hopes that these mysteries I was searching for existed on this DVD as I had hoped ... Nope. This was it. My fault? Yes. Well, at least partly, but in my defence Netflix posted the entire content of the show and labelled it Season 1, not Season 1 + Season 1.5
TL;DR - This is a great series; however, if you watched the first season on Netflix and are purchasing this DVD hoping for more, read above.
