Caprica S1.5 full-length preview as shown from Comic Con. (Spoilers ahoy)

First of all, can I say HOLY SHIT THIS LOOKS AMAZING?! Because it so totally does, it kind of makes me relieved yet pissed at the same time that we've had this super long mid-season hiatus, because my interest in this show has just been upped several more notches just by watching this preview alone, for real. Now, to discuss certain points from the preview:

++ It seems like they kind of gave away a few things that we kind of speculated from the mid-season finale. From the looks of things, Amanda did commit suicide and Daniel probably made a virtual version of her but is unhappy about her not being real, which evidently would push him over the limit. Also it seems that Joseph and Evelyn are going to be seeing each other more extensively and intimately, as hinted in the last few episodes before the break.

++ Joseph and Sam are going to be working together, the entire Adama family in fact, against the Guatrau? Have no idea, but it seems to look amazing either way. Plus, anything dealing with the Taurons and their cultural history is what I'm looking forward to.

++ Zoe's gonna get more action this half of the season, which will extend more than just going into the V-Club and into the robot body and more into the V-World in general. I remember Alessandra talking in an interview a while ago about how she revealed she will be doing some hardcore fighting (as seen in the preview) because she's a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and the show wanted to put those skills of hers to good use. Which I'm very excited about, to be honest. Also, it looks like Tamara and Zoe are going to be meeting each other again, whether working together or as rivals it's difficult to say. Nevertheless, I want to see their interaction more than ever.

++ MORE AMAZING WORLDS FROM THE 12 COLONIES!! Just seeing it in the preview, and the new characters + costumes, gave me chills.


++ Cage fighting will never go out of style, especially when it's inside a virtual world. Just seeing Zoe with a sword makes me all happy and I want to see both her and Tamara kicking major ass.

++ Lacy is finally going to get something amazing with her storyline development, with her involvement in the Soldiers of the One and Barnabus, and I can't wait to see her grow from where she started out on the show. Her shouting at Barnabus, "I've done everything you've asked!" sort of mirrors her relationship with virtual!Zoe in a way, because of all the things she's putting herself on the line for yet getting nothing in return. I want to see how all this develops and what it leads for her.

Seriously, more people should watch this show. The final half of the first season is going to be pretty frakking epic, without a doubt. Which in turn, will make the entire first season incredibly fantastic and quite a ride, and that's why I think this almost-year-long mid-season hiatus is just bullshit. But that's what SciFi does, unfortunately. Also, I think more BSG fans should migrate to watch Caprica, I'm surprised many aren't jumping on the bandwagon. I'm also surprised that the BSG fandom seems to be rather...quiet these days, not as active, or perhaps that's just my observation, idk.

James Callis is too cute in this interview, I can't even. ♥ He mainly discusses his role on Eureka, it's not spoilery unless you don't know the general information about the character he's playing. But he's just too adorable, so animated and giddy in this he actually made me smile with his smiley face, d'aww.

I think aside from Misha, I honestly want to meet James Callis in person and have a long conversation with him about anything, because he's just a very fluent and intellectual kind of guy that really has so many fascinating things to talk about. He thinks about the roles he plays, he analyzes what he needs to do in understanding a scene, which we've heard about constantly from Battlestar Galactica and his preparation for something with his character, he does the same with his role on Eureka and I really just would love to listen to him speak about that. Or anything from philosophy to what he ate for breakfast that morning. Love him, sfm. ♥

Totally agree on James Callis - assuming that I could be rational and not a giant fangirl (and that's a big assumption), he's definitely someone I'd love to have a long conversation with. He seems so passionate and his mind just goes a million miles a minute.

He literally can talk your ear off, but I honestly wouldn't mind because he's so eloquent when he speaks and he does it with such passion and interest, you're never bored with what he's saying. Just watching that interview and hearing him talk about costumes and his accent for over seven minutes was simply fascinating.

Heh heh, you said literally. Has he ever literally talked anyone's ears off? If so, I definitely want to document this on the blog! ;)

This show is amazing and I wish everyone would watch it. Because squeeeeeee! <3 The preview was SO awesome and I am SO excited.

(Sidenote: I met Madga, who plays Lacy, and she was SO nice and awesome. She was excited I loved the show and stopped to say hi to her. Everyone is so passionate about what they're doing; it's amazing.)

I would love to meet James Callis. He's definitely on my list of people I want to actually have a conversation with. He's so smart and clever, and I love to hear his take on this.
Renée: Caprica. Zoe Graystone.rogueslayer452 on July 27th, 2010 10:52 pm (UTC)
OH MY GOD GIRL, YOU BE SO LUCKY. :D I really want to meet that entire cast, Madga and Alessandra and Sasha Roiz and all of them. From interviews I can tell that they're all so passionate about their work, and Madga seems so sweet and nice and I'm glad you got to meet her! Jealous, yes I am.

I can't wait for Caprica to come back, it's been too long, but the preview makes me extra excited!

James Callis, Tricia Helfer, Felicia Day, and Joss Whedon are just a few of the people I really want to have an engaging conversation with for like, hours. Just to hear their thoughts, opinions, get better insight to their wonderful, genius minds. Also Misha Collins too, to get inside that brain of his would be quite intriguing....
Deniselle's Droolateria: smilekissdeniselleb on July 27th, 2010 10:56 pm (UTC)
I hear you on the James/conversation thing. I want to meet him and just... talk. Or just listen to him talk to a group of people about ANYTHING. I think I want that more than anything, including validation about my blog.

I have an idea. Instead of panels and autographs, we should organize a new kind of con. There would be sit-downs with James, with like five of us at a time, just listening to him as he sits in a comfy armchair in a library, talking about whatever's on his mind that day. And then we could ask him questions like "What is the meaning of life?" and "What's your theory on God?" or also less deep things. And he would be totally charming and elevate our intellectual level by 300 %.

Also, let's have it in Finland because I can't afford to travel.

I like the way your brain works. I would so totally be behind that convention concept, because how often do people go to these fan conventions and there's hardly any time to converse properly with these fine actors, that isn't asking a question at panels and the like? I often feel so rushed that just seeing them for a few moments isn't enough, I want to spend more time inside an intelligent discussion with an actor about anything at all. lol, and James would be the right person to ask the "meaning of life" question, hee.

Also, let's have it in Finland because I can't afford to travel.

Neither can I, which means I wouldn't be able to go unless I prostitute myself for the airfare. Sadness, I has it. :(

I think cons are just too big and too sort of conveyor-belt in terms of fan meetings. I can't imagine how else they could do it in that setting, though. Probably many stars just say "thank you" and write their name on a piece of paper and don't even want a longer meeting. I've only once seen someone complain that James acted like he didn't want to talk, and some of the time ppl even complain he talks too long to ppl and the line never moves along! :D

I love his efforts at making it a personal experience. But as for the intellectual stuff.. I think I'd be too fangushy to say anything smart. Or hear what he says to me.

You know what, maybe this should be an ONLINE convention. James would simply give us all his Skype/MSN name, and then we'd talk to him via Skype/MSN and he'd talk to us...

No one would have to pay anything bc we're all broke. And James would totally accommodate us for a 5-hour chat.

The ones I've experienced many of the actors would try to extend their time with fans to talk to them more. One in particular spent hours at his autograph table just chatting with every single person that came up, despite the convention people trying to rush him along. But every convention is different, especially the ones where actors stay for an entire weekend and aren't rushed for a single day so more people have a chance to meet and greet with them.

But yes, rambling aside, it would be nice to just have a nice intellectual chat with James, online or in real life (I personally would love IRL because, well, I wanna meet the man! :D) But yes, 5-hour long chat with James Callis would be sweet.

Everything you said about one Mister James Callis is a total yes. I mean, more likely than not, I'd just end up fangirling and being totally incoherent, but if I could get past that, he'd be one of my top choices for an awesome discussion. ♥
Renée: Six/Gaius. Passion.rogueslayer452 on July 28th, 2010 04:43 am (UTC)
I think I would end up just being so starry-eyed at him. He just seems to be so articulate and eloquent in whatever he's talking about, hours would easily be wasted listening to him speak on whatever subject. *__*

I completely didn't see virtual!Amanda coming, to be honest. Though looking back it makes sense, because how else would she return for the rest of the season? I can't wait to see Daniel's life fall apart for losing both his daughter and his wife due to his obsession with his project. That's something I want to see further explored. There's just so much I want to see progress with everyone's storylines and how they mesh together.

I don't understand why SciFi decided that, why push it back from October to January? I get worried because some would probably have forgotten it was still existing unless they were hardcore fans.

OMFG! I think I will forgive them for making such a long hiatus because it LOOKS AMAZING and I'm flailing over here. I think ever since Zoe met Tamara in the first half, I've wanted them to meet each other again and possibly kick ass. Looks like I'm going to get that.

Again, OMG!

The preview just looks so frakking amazing, it nearly took my breath away just seeing all the new footage. I didn't realize it's been so long that we haven't had any new Caprica. I was wondering when we would seen Tamara and Zoe together again, since their first meeting I felt like they needed to become friends because of how Zoe wanted to help Tamara. I have no idea what will happen in the second half but it looks interesting.

I'm such a fangirl, I squealed at the Adama clan getting all down with the mafia shit. Sam owns my heart.

I'm not looking at Caprica spoilers, but I'm hella excited for it to come back, that show was the best thing on Megavideo TV.

All I will say is that I don't think we'll be disappointed, they're going to really hit that high note for the end of the first season and I'm liking what I'm seeing from the preview. It's gonna be FRAKKING AWESOME! :D
