‘Caprica’ returned to the soil

Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello reports that Syfy has canceled Caprica, the Battlestar Galactica prequel focused on the rise of the artificial life forms known as Cylons:

“The remaining first run episodes of Caprica – airing Tuesdays at 10/9c – will be removed from the schedule as of next Tuesday, November 2,” said the network in a statement. “These final five episodes of the season will be re-scheduled to air at a to be announced time in the first quarter of 2011, and will conclude the run of the series.”

“We appreciate all the support that fans have shown for Caprica and are very proud of the producers, cast, writers and the rest of the amazing team that has been committed to this fine series,” said Mark Stern, EVP of Original Programming at Syfy. “Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, Caprica has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season.”

Just last week, the network greenlit another BG prequel, Blood & Chrome, a tale of a young William Adama fighting in the first Cylon war.

I wish they would make up their frakkin’ minds …

  • It was a horrible show that had absolutely nothing to do with the BSG mythology. It’s like someone did a copy/replace on an unrelated and terrible script of a badly written technophobic “cautionary tale”, and changed the characters’ names to Adama.

    I tried to give the show a chance regardless, but the hackneyed plot, when it moved forward at all, was played out by unlikable, unrealistic characters. I can’t imagine why anyone thought this show was a good idea.
