BSG fans, good news/bad news. 'Caprica' will not be extended by SyFy for another season but they will finish up with the remaining 'Final Five' episodes in Q1 2011. It appears that the lack of action and excessive talking turned off viewers. Even during BSG, the episodes on land were boring IMO.
The good news is that there will be a BSG prequel called ' Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome" which is a lead in to an action packed space based series. .

Meh....Caprica somehow was never up to the same standards as BSG. Great to hear they are working on a prequel though. I wonder if they have signed on Nico Cortez as the young Adama...and his hot girlfriend..whatsher name..ah yes...Jaycie McGavin

I found Caprica interesting, but not enthralling like BSG was, so am glad they are going to wrap it up neatly, but not extend it for a full season. The show never lived up to its pilot. I have high hopes for Blood And Chrome, but am wary of it turning into something too similar to BSG, I hope it has it's own path to tread.

BSG kept us on hooks with its great mysteries - who were the Final Five, will they ever return Home, and wrapped it all up in the end. 'Blood and Chrome' will need its own hooks to keep us on the edge of our seats, and some really strong anchor actors - The BSG team was just 'stellar'.
Having said that, I wish they would reincarnate the old Baltar

Hope the new series features a lot of what I like to call "Good old fashioned intergalactic ass-kicking"...a lack of that rendered "Caprica" a bit dull...like "Star Trek Deep Space 9"...they never "go" anywhere..."Caprica" is a fine soap opera, but not much more. Too "deep"... I like it, but it's a bit of a yawner.
I'd like to see the team of writers that turned "Galactica" into such a good re-boot tackle some other classic sci-fi series. How about a re-boot of "Lost In Space" or "Space 1999"??????
