This is a Caprica-centric post.

Caprica premiered last Friday, the two-hour pilot which had been slightly edited to fit appropriately for televising. There were some altered scenes, including the newly improved Pyramid stadium scene which I don't recall seeing on the extended version. Otherwise, it was still the same. And I loved it all. For those of you who are curious, I had already written my review of the mini-movie/pilot way back when the DVD came out. Even though it's been months since then, all my opinions have stayed pretty much the same. Just waiting for new material to start flooding in, and if the previews live up to the hype, we're in for some fascinating stuff this season.

With that, I would like to direct everyone to this fantastic interview with Jane Espenson regarding Caprica, discussing what we'll be expecting to come in the season. It is somewhat spoilery since it does focus a great deal on a particular character and their sexual identity, but I definitely recommend reading it to everyone because it does go on about how said sexuality will be presented on the show, of how they are creating this culture, about characters and their relationships and more specifically, about the writing and detailing everything on the show. Really, I thought about quoting a lot from this interview, but I'm just going to advise you to read it all. It's incredible and it makes me truly appreciate Jane Espenson a lot more than I already did, because that's what I love about her. She gets it, not just as a writer but also as part of the audience and being a fan.

Same-sex relationships, group marriages, monotheistic versus polytheistic views, heavily complex characters and their moralities examined and challenged, the unconventional being completely culturally acceptable in this universe, plus, the evolution (and abuse) of technology which creates the Cylons amongst colonies, thus bringing forth our own destruction. And people wonder why I adore these kinds of shows.

Promo for what's to come on Caprica, as seen after the premiere. AM IN LOVE. KEEP IN GOING, SCIFI.

Alessandra Torresani interview, pretty much explaining her role on the series as Zoe Graystone, among other things. I pretty much kinda adore Alessandra. I know some will think that she's kinda spastic, but she's doing quite well and I think, judging from her interviews and video blogs that she's done, I would totally want to be bffs with her in real life, especially since she's my age.

Now here's a question: WHEN ARE WE GOING TO BE SEEING STONEHENGE APOCALYPSE PREVIEWS?! IT IS 2010, BRING ON THE MISH MISH AND THE BAD SCIFI MOVIES!
