It’s no secret that I got so hooked on Battlestar Galactica (like countless other people). Even though I got into it way late in the game, I still got awfully depressed when I finally finished the series. I bet you all had a similar experience – it was as if part of my life was over. I kid you not. I moped around for days until I got hold of episodes of Caprica, and even then, it was not the same. It didn’t make things any better that there are only nine episodes, and we all have to wait till October for the second half of the season.
It’s time to mark our calendars, though. Season 1.5 of Caprica is going to be aired on the 5th of October on Syfy Channel.
I don’t know about you, but as much as I enjoyed (am enjoying) watching Caprica, I still miss some elements from BSG. I suppose that 4 seasons of the Adamas and Kara Thrace, et. al. cannot be shaken off that easily. In any case, from what I have seen in the teasers that Syfy has seen fit to share with us, the second half of the season is going to give us more of these elements.
Here’s one teaser – complete with Cylons and ships:
There’s more trailers where this came from – TV Overmind.
In other news, did you know that there is going to be another BSG spin-off? Admiral Adama himself (otherwise known as Edward James Olmos) has said that the new series is going to focus on the period of his life when he was around 20 years old.
There’s more! Edward James Olmos also says that he is hoping to work on a BSG graphic novel. The storyline? It will pick up where BSG ended. Should be interesting. For now, I shall count the days till October 5.
