By Your Command

Sam, meet Cy.  We just know you’ll be the best of friends.

This week’s episode of Caprica showed us two very different men in desperate need of support, both of whom ignore the real values that have made them who they are, and turn instead to technology for what they need most.

What follows is a review of “False Labour” and thus, contains spoilers.

Return to the Soil

Remember that phrase brides talk about before weddings, “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”?  This week’s episode of Caprica, Things We Lock Away, had all of them: echoes of the old Roman Empire, a reference to new social media fad Twitter, a glaringly prominent theme borrowed from Battlestar Galactica, and one of the most powerful scenes on the show to date…which left this blogger very blue indeed.

What follows after the cut is a recap and review, and therefore contains SPOILERS.

Taking Care of Business

“Have you ever NOT frakked up something in your life, Lacy?”

It’s an important question, asked early on in Caprica’s latest episode, “Retribution.”  When we first met Lacy (Magda Apanowicz) in the pilot, she didn’t go through with her part of Zoe’s flight to Gemenon and that decision saved her life.  She fails to follow through on something important in this episode and like the title implies, there are serious consequences.

Apotheosis Defined

Caprica’s back, and first off, can we dispense with the silly numbering and just say the second half of Caprica Season 1, rather than 1.5? That is the end of my complaints, really. Caprica returned this week with Unvanquished, a solid, fast-paced episode directed by star Eric Stoltz (Daniel Graystone). After weak ratings and an uncertain future, Caprica needed a strong return to win back the fans after the hiatus and give it any hope of a second season. Both the show and the fans play parts in that equation, but this episode delivered nicely on it’s end of the bargain.  Not the least of which, it gave us our first glimpse of one of the other colonies.
