    Looking forward to this. Caprica was, frankly, a massive let-down but this appears to be heading in the right direction.

    the end of the 2hr ending of Battlestar was a bit of a let down too!

    I agree! that + The Plan.

    roll on February for the proper tv series.

    Loved LOVED BSG. Never watched Caprica. Eagerly anticipating B&C.

    Looks fun. Enjoyed BSG, gave up on Caprica about four episode in.

    Looks badass, but I'm kinda disappointed that the cylon centurians don't look like the classic 70's cylons you see in the glass museum case in the pilot for the 2000's series.

    He's only a teen here, maybe those are the advanced versions from later in the war.

    You mean that gag of having one of the costumes? No they built a real CG model of them for Razor. The one in the trailer looks like it's external casing has been torn off.

    Whoa...looks great, even the toasters look better than ever. :thumb 

    I did watch Caprica, liked the first season eps, but of course it went on hiatus, and then when it came back with the 1.5 season eps, it really went south in the latter shown episodes...totally lost interest.....hopefully the webisodes will do well and when Syfy will give this seris a decent chance.

    I watched the first two webisodes and I liked them. They feel much more in line with BSG than with Caprica and that is an excellent thing.

    The only thing I don't like is the actor playing Adama. He said in an article that he never watched EJA as Adama and I wish that he had. They don't resemble one another in any way aside from dark hair and complexion. The voices are too dissimilar, the build is wrong, the mannerisms are all wrong. The guy who played a younger Adama in Razor was excellent and spot on though.

    Otherwise, I am very very pleased with the look and writing of the new show. I literally got chills when they showed Galactica. That was by far my favorite tv show of all time and I hope this series can do it justice, but so far, so good.

    Saw all 6 (?) episodes that are out so far. I'm liking this more than I thought, and it's a really well done web series, so to say.

    The effects are really top notch for a non-big budget show and the characters are present.

    I'm actually thoroughly enjoying this series so far. Never finished BSG, but I've heard mixed reviews. So here's hoping this one ends well.

    I saw the Sci Fi channel presentation and it was okay. But...






    Spoilers












    If I was somone about to cycle out. Adama would be the last person I would want to be around. The cylons were bit more advanced than I expected too. I thought the Cylons got the tech to become humanoids from the original earth Cylons.

    I watched the first 4 webisodes on youtube then forgot about the rest. I have however had this on pre-order on Blu-Ray since it was listed, so I should be getting it soon. I'll definitely be watching the entire thing and wishing that it was a regular series rather than a one shot deal.
