Well after having my appetite wet by the excellent pilot for the upcoming apocalyptic SyFy series Caprica, it seems I, along with millions of other expectant fans will now have to wait a little longer as the series will not be available online free till early 2010.
For those unfamiliar Caprica is a spin-off show and prequel to Battlestar Galactica. Set 58 years earlier the show traces the events that lead to the rise of the Cylons and the eventual cataclysmic destruction of the planet.
Eric Stoltz, Michelle Andrew, Roger R. Cross, Magda Apanowicz, Genevieve Buechner.
The show will air on SyFy January 22, 9pm (US) and on Space January 22 9 ET/6PT (Canada) and Sky 1 TBA (UK)
Watching Caprica free you can’t help but feel the similarities between the Caprica home world and our own. And I had the uneasy feeling that maybe one day our pride and scientific follies may lead us down a similar path.
If you’ve not watched the pilot yet I won’t spoil it for you, other than to say watch Caprica! For now it’s only available on either DVD or online download.
