"Caprica would take place more than half a century before the events that play out in Battlestar Galactica. The people of the Twelve Colonies are at peace and living in a society not unlike our own, but where high-technology has changed the lives of virtually everyone for the better.Umm. My one word reaction: BORING!
But a startling breakthrough in robotics is about to occur, one that will bring to life the age-old dream of marrying artificial intelligence with a mechanical body to create the first living robot: a Cylon. Following the lives of two families, the Graystones and the Adamas (the family of William Adama, who will one day become the commander of the Battlestar Galactica), Caprica will weave together corporate intrigue, techno-action and sexual politics into television's first science fiction family saga, the channel announced."
Look, I love "Battlestar Galactica" but this idea doesn't impress me at all. A prequel about "corporate intrigue, techno-action and sexual politics"? Sounds like a bad John Grisham novel with robots. There is only one event of the show's past that I could see creating a new series around and that's the first Cylon war. Short of that, why would anyone be interested? The popularity of the current show is based on the struggle for human survival. That's what keeps the viewers interested.
It's possible that this "idea" is only a trial balloon designed to gauge whether or not there would be any interest from the fans.
