Syfy cancels Caprica

This is official: Caprica has been cancelled. The show is being taken off the schedule and the remaining five episodes will be shown (burned off) sometime in early 2011.

Galactica Quorum #95 – “Retribution”

In “Retribution” we learn two things: Caprica has a brief monsoon season, and Clarice takes no prisoners. We bemoan the fact that Barnabus went from badass to blabbering, and that Joseph is reduced to a note-taker. The Quorum consisted of Brian and Jason.

Galactica Quorum #94 – “Unvanquished”

Caprica returns with “Unvanquished.” Unfortunately it failed more than once to take the necessary step forward, always backing down from what could have been a game-changing event. We scratch our heads over Clarice and her plan, Geminon’s virtual sets, and the focus on the STO. But the biggest WTF came from the last scene. The show took a turn there, …

Galactica Quorum #93 – Caprica Returns

Caprica returns for the second half of Season One. Will these ten episodes be a departure from the first ten? Will the fans return, and what level of success does it need for it to be renewed by Syfy? We make a couple predictions and cross our fingers. The hopeful Quorum consisted of Brian and Jason. Listen using the player …

Geek Quorum #4 – Lost Finale

After six mind-bending seasons, Lost has ended. Was the finale a satisfactory ending to the series? We review and discuss the final episode, ask what other mysteries should have been explained, and rate how Lost now stands among other top scifi shows. We also view the finale from a BSG fan‘s perspective: would harsh critics of the BSG finale regard …

Geek Quorum #3 – Avatar

We discuss the landmark sci-fi film Avatar! We assess the production design versus the perceived lack of story and dialogue. Was the movie Oscar worthy? We consider the potential of the motion capture technology, and the possibility of 3D TVs in the home. And what of a sequel? We entertain some ideas about what the next movie may entail. Quorum …

Galactica Quorum #92 – “Michael Nankin Interview”

We interview director Michael Nankin about some of the great episodes he’s done on BSG and Caprica. He discusses how he approached filming the deaths of notable characters, as well as bringing new characters and locales to life (Vergis, Barnabus, New Cap City…). He also provides a behind-the-scenes look at some of the production decisions for several key episodes, including …

Galactica Quorum #91 – “End Of Line”

“End Of Line” finally moves some key story points forward. The progression is nice, but there’s still a long way to go. Was it an effective mid-season cliffhanger? Does anyone care whether Amanda lives or dies? Or believe that the U-87 is toast?  The call to Daniel–from whom? And is he relevant now that his company royally frakked up the …

Galactica Quorum #90 – “Ghosts In The Machine”

Daniel was putting Zoe through tests in “Ghosts In The Machine,” but we’re the one feeling tortured–whether it was the abundance of screentime for bratty Zoe or the head-scratching misadventures of Joseph in New Cap City, it was a trying viewing experience. New Cap City has turned into a disappointment, but we still would like to know–where’s Tamara? The Quorum …

Galactica Quorum #89 – “The Imperfections Of Memory”

Amanda‘s character continues her bizarre descent in “The Imperfections Of Memory.” We ponder over her strange visions and the unusual relationships she has with Clarice and Daniel. News of a new BSG spinoff has us undeniably excited. Meanwhile we try to forecast what changes may be in store for Caprica, now that the show has supposedly taken a new, firmer …
