'Caprica' to Return in October

by Maureen Ryan, posted Sep 9th 2010 3:00PM
Viewers who'd stuck with Syfy's 'Caprica' during its uneven first season weren't thrilled when Syfy announced earlier this year that the 'Battlestar Galactica' prequel would not return until January 2011.

Today, Syfy announced that it is bringing back 'Caprica' earlier than expected: The second half of the first season will now return Oct. 5.

How Should 'Caprica' End? Ron Moore Has No Idea!

by Mike Moody, posted Mar 15th 2010 5:04PM
caprica zoe'Caprica' continues to deliver its own unique blend of intriguing sci-fi drama while also adding to the mythology of 'Battlestar Galactica'. So far, we've seen the "birth" of the first Cylon, explored Admiral Adama's Tauron roots, and discovered the origins of the Cylons' monotheistic leanings. But how far will 'Caprica' take us? What will the series' end game look like? Will it conclude with the first Cylon war? The eventual fall of the thirteen colonies?

In a recent video interview (embedded after the jump), series creator Ron Moore said that the end point of the series isn't clear yet. The writers still haven't decided how far they want to take the story. Moore did promise that we'd see Zoe's avatar "progress." He also revealed that we might eventually see her "in the flesh as it were, in the real world."

Syfy Standing Behind 'Caprica' For 'The Long Haul'

by Mike Moody, posted Feb 19th 2010 1:05PM
caprica james marstersDespite low ratings and a mixed reception from genre fans, Syfy isn't ready to cash out its cubits and give up on 'Caprica' just yet.

Mark Stern, Syfy's EVP of original programming, told Airlock Alpha that the cable net is committed to the show "for the long haul."

Stern says Syfy wasn't expecting the 'Battlestar Galactica' prequel series to become a hit right out of the gate, not even with fans of Ron Moore's celebrated sci-fi show.

"It's not 'Battlestar Galactica,' it's its own animal. And we definitely recognize that it's going to find its audience and it's going to grow its audience," he said.

Lucy Lawless Heading to 'Caprica' for Final Five Arc?

by Mike Moody, posted Feb 11th 2010 10:00AM
lucy lawless bsg capricaWith 'Caprica' struggling to find an audience, it seems natural for the show to hail the mother ship, 'Battlestar Galactica', for a little help.

According to TV Guide, 'Caprica' will soon begin an arc that reveals the backstory of 'BSG's "Final Five" Cylons.

It's unclear if the actors who originally portrayed The Five will return for the 'BSG' prequel, but we might get a visit from another familiar Cylon face. Word is that 'Caprica' producers have already asked Lucy Lawless to reprise the role of D'Anna, one of 'BSG's most troublesome toasters.

Review: Caprica - Rebirth

by Nick Zaino, posted Jan 30th 2010 12:40AM
Zoe Graystone from SyFy's Caprica(S010O2) In one scene in the second episode of Caprica, Amanda Graystone holds a book that belonged to her daughter, called The Physics of Religion and Spirituality. The fact that she's holding it at a memorial for the victims of a terrorist attack, while mourning her daughter, Zoe, is more than a little ironic.

We'll start with the fact that the book was given to Amanda by the mother of Zoe's boyfriend Ben, who strapped explosives to his chest and blew up the train in the name of one true god, killing Zoe and many others. When Amanda finds a religious symbol amongst the book and some photos, she is convinced that Zoe was part of the plot to bomb the train (she wasn't, although she shared some of the religious views that led to it).

by Jane Boursaw, posted Jan 23rd 2010 5:52AM
Caprica Series PremiereWhat happened on this week's 'Caprica' season 1 episode 1, 'Pilot' -- in 100 words or less.

Ah, so this is where it all begins -- with virtual nightclubs, train terrorists, avatars, group sex, virgin sacrifices, and daddy issues on the peaceful planet of Caprica.

Set some 50 years before 'Battlestar Galactica,' the Graystones and the Adamas are brought together by tragedy. Before young Zoe Graystone dies at the hand of a terrorist bomber, she perfected a virtual reality where kids could hang out. When Joseph Adama's wife and daughter die in the same attack, he and Daniel Graystone are brought together.

"Let's get this genocide started!"

That Cavil is one evil bucket of bolts.

Sci Fi's new trailer for Battlestar Galactica: The Plan is making the rounds and drumming up anticipation for the TV movie, which premieres this fall. The Plan will portray the events of the Cylon attack on the twelve colonies through the perspective of the Cylons. It's directed by Admiral Adama himself, Edward James Olmos, and written by BSG and Warehouse 13 scribe Jane Espenson, who also helped craft the BSG Web series the Face of the Enemy.

Heroes gets its very own Cylon

rick worthy battlestar heroes cylonYou know what? I'm down with all the cast, er, cross-pollination that's going on in sci-fi TV these days. Especially if it means good actors can keep working after their previous shows were given the axe. Earlier today, we reported that Brian Austin Green, formerly of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, is joining Smallville for a two-episode arc. Now it looks like Battlestar Galactica's Rick Worthy is in talks to join NBC's Heroes.

On BSG, Worthy played Simon, the Cylon famous for conducting icky experiments on Kara Thrace. He'll play telepath Matt Parkman's new partner, an experienced L.A. cop, on Heroes when the show returns this fall. It's still unclear if Worthy's character will develop superpowers on the show, but something tells me he'll be more than just a normal cop before long. This is Heroes were talking about, the show where everyone gets superpowers.

Worthy is a sci-fi vet. He's appeared in everything from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine to Dark Angel and Stargate: SG-1. He'll be joining new Heroes season four recruits Robert Knepper and Madelina Zima.

One more thing, Battlestar Galactica - VIDEO

animal cylon battlestar galactica muppets muppet parodyFor those us Battlestar Galactica nerdz, we're still feeling frakked up, teary-eyed and sniveling following the series' recent exit stage right. Ron Moore laid the show to rest with dignity and deserved pride, which is why our posting the following video might appear silly, childish, and self-indulgent to some.

But still, if you haven't yet seen it, the combination of Muppet and Cylon is a marriage made in LOLheaven, and we can't let Adama and co. get away without witnessing a giant Animal enacting a nuclear holocaust across the twelve colonies. While there are plenty of mash-ups floating around YouTube, this one has most definitely stood the test of time (less than two years, that is), considering that it combines Bear McCreary and Jim Henson (which is essentially something we've been waiting for since the very moment Six blew up the planets and stuff in the BSG miniseries).

Match made in heaven? So say we all.

Six characters from other shows whom we wish were Cylons - VIDEO

battlestar galactica sci fiBattlestar Galactica is premiering! Did you know that? BSG is starting again. Ten eps left. Best show ever. Can. Not. Wait. Especially because we need to know the identity of the final Cylon!

Look, we're so crazy excited for the season premiere that the only thing we could do to keep ourselves from going a'spoiler-hunting was to create a wishlist. Below are six characters from other shows throughout history whom we imagine share the same genetics as those frakkin' Toasters.

Tricia Helfer: The TV Squad interview - Comic-Con Report

by Keith McDuffee, posted Aug 1st 2008 4:22PM
tricia helferI'll have a longer post about the Sci Fi / Entertainment Weekly party early next week, but I wanted to post a couple of short interviews I was able to grab at the party first. I actually wasn't intending to interview anyone at this party, but since Rich had his handy recorder with him, I made a few choice picks from the red carpet while I had the chance.

First up: Tricia Helfer. With Battlestar Galactica finished filming, she's been busy in a guest-starring role on Burn Notice. Hell, this woman's on two shows I love and, come on, it's Tricia Helfer. I was the last person in line on the carpet, so I kept it short. She was extremely nice and open to talk to.

It's Friday and there's no Galactica. What will we do?!

Get ready for many, many Friday nights of having to find something better to do than sit in front of television to watch Battlestar Galactica. You could always dig into your past-season DVDs to reminisce on what's happened before ("and will happen again?") or simply watch BSG online. There's also the unimaginable: spending time with friends and loved ones, stepping out of the house or, gods forbid, getting some extra sleep.

While we all think of what to do with that extra hour we have every week, let's go over a few things going on since last week's mid-season finale.

Jane Espenson on Battlestar Galactica's mid-season finale

by Keith McDuffee, posted Jun 16th 2008 9:21AM
jane espenson(Warning! If you haven't watched the latest episode of BSG yet, thar be spoilers ahead!)

After last Friday's episode, a lot of us had questions about what we saw. Was that Earth? Are humans and cylons really bonded together, after all this time? Who is the final cylon? I finally took the time to throw a slew of questions toward writer and co-executive producer Jane Espenson about this episode, and she had a few things to say (though nothing quite as revealing as I had hoped).

Rather than get into what I had to say, I'll let her letter back to me speak on its own. As you'll quickly see, she's not a woman of few words when it comes to this show. I'm hoping she'll have just as much to spill when I ask her questions for our Buffy Retro Squad week next week.
