“End Of Line” finally moves some key story points forward. The progression is nice, but there’s still a long way to go.
Was it an effective mid-season cliffhanger? Does anyone care whether Amanda lives or dies? Or believe that the U-87 is toast?Â The call to Daniel–from whom? And is he relevant now that his company royally frakked up the robot project?

Daniel was putting Zoe through tests in “Ghosts In The Machine,” but we’re the one feeling tortured–whether it was the abundance of screentime for bratty Zoe or the head-scratching misadventures of Joseph in New Cap City, it was a trying viewing experience.
New Cap City has turned into a disappointment, but we still would like to know–where’s Tamara?

Amanda‘s character continues her bizarre descent in “The Imperfections Of Memory.” We ponder over her strange visions and the unusual relationships she has with Clarice and Daniel.
News of a new BSG spinoff has us undeniably excited. Meanwhile we try to forecast what changes may be in store for Caprica, now that the show has supposedly taken a new, firmer direction.

“Know Thy Enemy” was a typical “setup” episode–but setup for what? Not a lot happened, but the introduction of Vergis and Barnabus seems to signal a shift in the story. But what of the other storylines, especially the most interesting one: Tamara?
Instead, we are left to roll our eyes over the creepy tech guy, and Clarice’s slapstick spywork.

It’s not the show BSG fans expected, but with “There Is Another Sky,” Caprica may have finally found its footing. We were very intrigued by Tamara and her storyline in New Cap City. Her dad, however, is a mess–on the show and as a character.
The virtual world seems completely at odds with the hard-wired BSG universe, but we’re hopeful for story potential. Still, we can’t help but muse about some of the missed turns that the show has taken.

Perhaps the most charming part of “Gravedancing” was the dancing Cylon. While the issue of the Holoband‘s effects on youth was interesting, watching the Graystones squirm on a studio set was hardly gripping. And did you really think there were going to kill off Amanda?
At this point, what characters are drawing you in? Do you mind seeing actors from BSG in different roles on Caprica?
The Quorum consisted of Brian, Dimitry, Matthew, and Michele.
“Reins Of A Waterfall” showed a little improvement and story potential, but we’re still waiting for the show to elevate to the next level. This week, listeners weigh in with early reviews of the series so far, mostly negative. We ask what’s missing–is it the lack of sci-fi?Â And how do you define sci-fi?
We also question what the producers were thinking when they first conceived the show’s tone being “ironic.” They acknowledge that they’ve made some changes…what would you change?
Be sure to listen to our new podcast, covering all things sci-fi: The Geek Quorum.

We knew “Rebirth” couldn’t match the amazing “33” as a series opener, but we still had hopes for more. It’s a character show, and we examine the various choices they make.
We look ahead to what this type of show will be, and whether it has mass appeal–all the while, still pining for the show we wish they had made, about the first Cylon war.
