I can’t say I’m surprised, SyFy Have decided to can the Battlestar Galactica Sequel Caprica. Hopefully they will plough the resources that they would have spent on it on making Blood and Chrome as awesome as it can be.
Caprica was a bit incoherent, it started with a fairly good premise but I think it got lost and just didn’t go anywhere.

Io9 seem to think this is a bad thing for Caprica, SyFy are making another prequel to BSG. To be honest it doesn’t bother me in the slightest, Caprica was rubbish, okay maybe not rubbish but it was drawn out and didn’t really flow very well and most importantly it missed out on everything that BSG had going for it. I only watched the first season, and by the end of it you just felt like they had lost the plot.
I think that a BSG prequel that focused on the First Cylon war which this one seems to would be more in the spirit of BSG and all in all just less shit. As I understand it this show will Focus on Will Adama as a viper pilot, which I think will awesome.
In other BSG news, Fantasy Flight Games are releasing a new expansion for the BSG board game, and it also looks like it’s going to be awesome. If you’ve not played the BSG board game and you like board games and or BSG in any way shape or form you should go out and buy it now.
