Syfy is burning off the remaining five episode of Caprica in a mini-marathon today – 6pm through 11pm, in case you didn’t know – and, even though the fate of the show may have already been decided, there’s definitely a draw in the idea of seeing how the series unfolded towards its end. But why are we getting a marathon at all?
Apparently, I have more power than I suspected. Last week, I wished that Syfy would stop with the Battlestar Galactica spin-offs, and then this week they pull Caprica off the air mid-season. But doing so raised some questions, and concerns, as well as gloating…
The escalating feud between the Adama and Graystone families, not to mention the race to build the first Cylon, is at an end. The Syfy network has announced the cancellation of Caprica, the television prequel series that spun out of Battlestar Galactica.
“Caprica” creator Ronald D. Moore, executive producer David Eick and actors James Marsters, SAsha Roiz, Alessandra Torresani Magda Apanowicz appeared at Comic-Con International to talk about the Syfy series’ origin, tone and future, and how it compares to “Battlestar Galactica.”
The programming schedule has been released for the first full day of Comic-Con International. Thursday’s movie and television highlights include panels devoted to Tron: Legacy, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, RED and The Expendables — plus the “Visionaries” spotlight on J.J. Abrams and Joss Whedon.
