Caprica has been cancelled and I can’t say I’m disappointed.

I am a bit surprised, though. I really thought that SyFy would have picked it up for at least another half season, maybe use those extra episodes to wrap up the story in a nice, DVD-ready package.

Caprica never really grabbed me, and watching it was less enjoyable than it was obligatory. I felt that as a big fan of BSG I HAD to watch, I HAD to try to understand what the heck was going on, that I HAD try to like the characters. Well, after 12 episodes I still don’t understand what’s going on, and I still don’t care for any of the characters. Now I have one less obligation, and that’s why I’m not disappointed.

From the LA Times: “Syfy has just announced “Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome,” a two-hour spin-off pilot that gets back into the Viper with a young version of William Adama and executive producer David Eick. We caught up with the veteran creator to get some early intel on a project that will be getting underway after the first of the year.”

I’m sorry. I know, that as a huge fan of BSG I’m supposed to be jazzed about this project; however, I am not. It feels like SyFy is milking BSG for all it’s worth – First: Razor, not bad, but completely unnecessary; Second: The Plan, meh; Third: Caprica, cool to look at, but honestly I find it muddled, with characters that are almost all unappealing. These mediocre spinoffs/side projects do harm to the original series, I think, and I can’t imagine this new one will be any different.

I say they should leave well enough alone and just keep airing the 4 seasons of BSG over and over again.
