Group sex? Virgin sacrifices? Check out a clip from the Caprica pilot - VIDEO

caprica scifiA new clip from the Caprica pilot hit the web today. The clip features Eric Stoltz's Daniel Graystone touring a "Cyber Club," where people go to dance, drink, and offer the occasional virgin sacrifice to the goddess of the underworld. There's also a fight club, group sex rooms, and fantasy killing rituals. Hmm, maybe humanity did deserve to get nuked after all.

SciFi's upcoming Battlestar Galactica prequel is slated to hit the air with a two-hour movie in 2010. Judging by this clip, Ron Moore and crew are ready to go to some very dark places with this series, but only time will tell if BSG fans are ready to follow them.

BSG commented on the ethics, faith, politics and technology of a society struggling to survive after tragedy. Caprica looks to examine how a society deals with radical advances in technology and its influence on the culture. The series has the potential to deliver some great stories and piercing social commentary. Even though we already know the ending – Cylons come, world goes boom – this is one prequel project I'm really looking forward to watching.

Check out the clip below. Are you still looking forward to Caprica?

Holy moly! Can't wait for this series. I hope they give it a chance and don't cancel it after one season. It has a ton of potential and a great cast.

I thought this might be pretty bad but after this clip it seems really interesting. If it's the same rehashed story about how bad the humans have become it might get stale but I'm hoping it doesn't get all preachy and corny. I've been impressed with BSG for a long while so I'm thinking they won't fall into any bad traps.

I can't wait to see this series, as well, but I wonder if it can survive, even on cable. Sci Fi is not known for nurturing series, and they especially don't like dark and intelligent television. The only reason BSG survived as long as it did was because of the critical acclaim it received.
