Hey folks, it's been a while since I last posted anything, sorry about that, I was just doing other things. Anyway to the point, I first saw Caprica on DVD back in the summer of 2009, I thought it was good, but only saw it once. I heard about it on TV, I am a die hard Battlestar Galactica fan and was watching the final episodes. When it finally aired on January 22,I fell in love. I found the show so realistic, that my heart was pacing after the train explosion. I'm 16, and people say I have a very vivid imagination for my age. I thought that the characters, Zoe, Daniel, and Adama extremely realistic. That night, I actually dreamed I was lived in Caprica city, (sad but true). When I woke up the next morning, I was still thinking that I lived on Caprica. Now this may make me sound like I'm nuts, but I assure you I'm not. I have a pretty stressful life, and in the last year or so, BSG was mainly the only thing that could give my relief. Caprica, I'm glad to say, seems to do the same thing. I almost wish the show was real, and that I lived on Caprica, I'm not sure why, but I think it has to due with the way everyone dresses, in the 50's style costumes, so it's vintage clothing mixed with futuristic lifestyle, spaceships (If you look at the skyline in Caprica city, you can see ships flying around). Does BSG and Caprica have this sort of effect on anyone else?
Cheers. :)

It is good to have an active imagination and to have an outlet that you enjoy. There are a lot of people like that I'm sure. I don't see a problem with it unless fantasy walks all over reality :nBSGsalute:

I have to agree with you, the second episode was better. It's really sad though, what happens to Caprica city, it get's completely nuked! It was an awesome city.

Kind of like what many said about "33" being better than the BSG miniseries. The pilots have the more laborious task of setting everything up. The first episodes after that are when the writers and directors get to really play in the sandbox they created; realizing the potential of the weekly series ("Rebirth" was more engaging than the Caprica pilot; I agree 100 %... but it also had the easier job!).

I liked Caprica. I LOVED Rebirth. But, as usual, I agree with OT, it had the easier job. the pilot had to set up the whole world, the main characters, the Taurean issue, the two families, the Soldiers of One....
But, emotionally, Rebirth got to me, especially the scene with Zoe/Cylon in the truck, fighting. It lost me when Mrs. Greystone, who I never "got" or saw any appeal in, announced to the world that her daughter caused the tragedy. As a mother, that rang completely untrue. Even when you are feeling stunned and betrayed by your offspring it is almost a biological imperative to try and cover for them!!!
However, that is the only moment, that felt like the plot device it was. And the look on Adama's face was priceless... almost worth it.

To respond to my my friend, Siggurdson: I hear you, man!
I am starting to feel more like Zoe every day. Obviously, A) It is a Very good show and B) I have father issues LOL! But it is a great show and I love seeing the birth of the cylons it is opening my mind a LOt about BSG!!! I love it!!

:sixanime004: I know what you mean, and that part really made my hear pace. It was a pretty stupid thing for her to do, and she didn't really know her daughter was a terrorist, only that she was a dating the bomber. I love the show, and I also love the music. It's really beautiful, Bear McCreary is a genius! I see what you mean about feeling like Zoe. I sort of feel like a citizen of Caprica. :) Although when Zoe's principle went to that drug place, what were they smoking? Also I think that she's weird, the principle I mean, she has a really large family, and is married to that weird guy.

Good point, Starbuck. It did feel a little false, didn't it? I thought maybe that was Amanda's way of lashing out at dead Zoe for deceiving her so much and NOT including her in her life in any meaningful way; she felt betrayed by Zoe (esp when Lacy told her she was going to her 'new family' on Gemenon; that HAD to hurt very badly). Amanda's grief is maybe a bit different; she is not only in pain for Zoe's loss, but she's also so pissed off at Zoe for betraying her so much and not including her in her life in any meaningful way; and in her anger she has no place or person to reciprocate her feelings with.

But yeah, I agree; when my brother passed away (when I was a kid) my mother would deify him. Everything my late brother did was sacred. His every utterance suddenly rendered profound. This went on for years. Eventually, after enough time had passed, my late older brother was back to 'human scale' again instead of being the 'Olympian god' he was right after he died (I don't mean that in disrespect to my late brother, but at the time, that's how it felt). Amanda's reaction seemed very 'counter-intuitive' to how a mother should react.

I've never really lost anyone close to me, so maybe I shouldn't comment on this, but I see nothing wrong with Amanda's reaction. Everyone deals with grief differently, and you'd have to blind not to put together the pieces that were in front of her. Remember that she doesn't Ben was the bomber. Right now, all evidence points to Zoe. I think that sense of betrayal (and possibly guilt; she may well blame herself for Zoe going bad) would have been like twisting the knife in her heart.

My interpretation was not that she was lashing out at Zoe. I think she simply broke down in grief. Again, this just added insult to injury, so to speak. She couldn't take it anymore. She not only lost her daughter; she realized she never even knew her daughter.

Anyway, it was my favourite scene in "Rebirth," and I think it was a crucial step in the story-telling. Thus far, Amanda had mostly served as someone for Daniel to play off of. Now she's getting some personality of her own.

You know, one of the saddest things about Caprica, is that the world you see, is all going to be destroyed 58 years later. :(
