Default Caprica????

WTF?

This pops up on netflix and I've never heard of it.

Battle Star Galactica prequel.

Watched a few minutes, wondered what the point was when we know that the sh!t hits the fan in 150 years.

Worth watching?

Battle Star Galactica IMHO is the finest TV show EVER.

Every episode is a full scale movie. Awesome effects, believeable, best actors in a show.

Something made by the same people sounds great, but this didn't hook me right off.

Compared to BSG it was disappointing, very slow-moving storyline but does fill is some backstory on the origins of the Cylons and the Adama family. Worth watching if you're a BSG fan, but not a must-see.

Thanks. Not what I was hoping to hear, but what I feared.

Really enjoying Breaking Bad.

They cancelled it before it could really get its legs I think. There was supposed to be another series, Blood and Chrome, but that apparently isn't ever going to happen.

It's a shame, BSG was epic. You'd think they could muster a worthy spin-off.

Galactica 1980 is on there too. It gives new meaning to the word "awful". Worse than khiddy's 70's brew! Not as bad as Ovaltine beer.

Caprica is completely different than BSG, but somehow gives you a familiar feeling when you watch it. It's kind of slow, but I enjoyed it.

It was just a tad bit better than not better! I don't miss it but I did watch it.
Wonder what happened to Blood and Chrome. Guess they crapped that.
