REVIEW:

“Caprica" (SYFY, Fridays at 9:00 p.m. Eastern) is a prequel/spin-off series to the popular reliance of “Battlestar Galactica.” The premise is the creation of the Cylons. Let’s just say the story will engage the audience as each episode unfolds.

The story begins in a cyber club which is a virtual reality version of a chatroom. Zoe Graystone, played by Alessandra Torresani is with her friends navigating through the debauchery of the club. It turns out that Zoe has created an avatar of herself. She is later caught at school, and taken back home. We meet Daniel Graystone and Amanda, his wife, played by Eric Stoltz and Paula Malcomson. An argument ensues and Zoe storms off. The next morning, Zoe cuts school she and her friends catch a train that will take them off world. Her boyfriend Ben Stark played by Avan Jogia wires a bomb and the train explodes. In conclusion the result of this bombing leaves Daniel devastated and he meets Joseph Adama, played by Esai Morales and they form a bond, because his wife and daughter were killed on the train. Daniel taps into the Zoe’s avatar, and he offers to create avatars of Adama’s wife and daughter.

So "Caprica" should entertain. Ronald D. Moore the shows creator and the man behind “Battlestar Galactica’s” revival creates a set of flawed characters. The Adama’s are a part of a mob. Daniel plots to steal a critical processor to help with his loss. Amanda is a depressed and broken woman. Zoe, got herself involved in a sort of cult entitled “The Solders of the One,” and was at the center of the bombing.

On the positive side, the story is engaging it tells of a society’s downfall. The acting is marvelously acted out. Morals and Stoltz play off each other well as two men who share a similar loss. It’s ironic how an act of compassion can lead to something so devastating as to what happens in the “Galactica” series. Polly Walker gives a stellar performance as Clarice, Zoe’s teacher. You can never tell rather she is good or evil. This character is so manipulative and this is executed perfectly. Zoe’s best friend Lacy, played by Magda Apanowicz is a troubled teen who believes that should have been on the doomed train. Apanowich gives this performance brilliantly. There are a few scenes where Clarice tries to work on her, but Lacy is unsure. These were examples of scenes that make the show work. Let’s not forget young William Adama played Sina Najafi, a troubled nine year boy who wishes his father had more time for him. You can see how this boy will grow up, join the military and lead the colonial fleet.

But on the negative side, Moore has created characters that have too many shades of gray. You can’t really sympathize with them. Daniel steals, the Adamas perform hits. Zoe was at the center of a bombing. The show you could say lacks some heart. I know it’s about a downfall of society and the creation of the dreaded Cylons, but sometimes you have to root for certain characters.

Considering this is only the pilot, it’s just as engaging as “Battlestar Galactica was. The fans of the franchise should love it. I’m not sure if it will attract anyone who is not familiar this universe. I say that Moore has created a world not unlike our own with characters who are flawed and who will eventually pay for their sins. Since this is a cable show, I think it will be successful and should last as long as “Battlestar Galactica and create some unforgettable characters in the process.
