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?
If Syfy’s sudden cancellation of Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica left you hanging, here’s some good news: The channel has scheduled the five final episodes for broadcast. Here’s the bad news: It’s in a one-off marathon just after New Year.
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.
It’s official: Syfy has greenlit a backdoor pilot for a second prequel to Battlestar Galactica, called Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome. At what point will someone at the network realize that enough is enough?
Syfy announced this morning that Season 1.5 of Caprica, the prequel to Battlestar Galactica, will premiere on Oct. 5 rather than in January 2011, as originally planned. The series will air on Tuesday nights following Stargate Atlantis.
“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.”
At Comic-Con International on Thursday, Battlestar Galactica actor Richard Hatch led a discussion about Caprica, and the themes, music and legacy of BSG.
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.
With almost every network show reaching their season finales right now, we thought it was time to ask: Which one was your favorite?
Syfy is moving its Friday Night Original Programming to Tuesdays – but why?
