The made for DVD movie and the series spin off of Battlestar Galactica called Caprica will premiere this January 22nd at 9 eastern 8 central on SYFY channel. I did get to watch the DVD when it was released last year and I did expect something like Battlestar but I was surprised to see it had a different type of feel to it . Not that it is bad just a little different .
While the episode was still fresh in my mind I decided to write a little a blog piece about it then which I cleaned up a bit and reprinted below. I totally expect the TV version to be a bit different then the DVD only because certain content that may be key to some areas of the plot will most likely be cut out do to its adult nature.
Expect the first episode to be a slower pace then BSG. But also take in consideration it is a pilot and introduction to a bigger story and in these epic type of sci fi programs that means it may take some episodes to get going. No doubt the faithful will tune in and it will run its course and be a huge success. If not it will have the core audience to hold it up until the story is played out so either way the story that fills in all the blanks of the Battlestar universe should be complete from beginning to end.
