I just finished watching the new pilot for the BSG spinoff/prequel Caprica this evening and, so far, it’s got my vote. Interesting characters and storylines with enough hints about the seeds of the Cylon war that viewers can already start speculating about how the show’s going to pan out (if it’s given enough time).
The story revolves around rich technology giant Daniel Graystone and lawyer Joseph Adama (father of Admiral William Adama). Both men lose their daughters (Adama loses his wife as well) when a boy terrorist sets off a bomb on a passenger train. Graystone, who’s been trying to create a successful military robot prototype but needs an AI to make it work, stumbles upon a secret of his daughter’s that could affect his life and his work, while Adama tries to raise his surviving son while struggling with obligations to his people and the mob as he tries to stay legit.
