Are there any good guys to cheer for on a doomed world, or does everyone share some of the responsibility?
Where BSG started off with fast-paced action, for Caprica we get a close-up view of how grief shatters lives. Caprica’s first post-pilot episode was all about guilt, blindness and manipulation. As our main characters mourn the loss of those they loved, others pull their strings mercilessly. The pilot episode gave us a variety of moral points of view, equally valid. By the end of “Rebirth” we are now starting to see clear differences between right and wrong and have clear signals as to who we should side with. Yet all the characters are flawed. That makes for good television.
