The pilot for Battlestar Galactica prequel/spinoff Caprica aired last night on Syfy, with a few extras that weren't on the DVD. What did you think?

Previously, we talked about the pilot and gave you a spoiler-free response to the first few episodes. We also talked to former showrunner Jane Espenson (here) and creator David Eick (here) about the show. The real question is, after that pilot, will you be tuning in for the first episode?

We'll have our full review and talk about the differences between the DVD and the broadcast version later this weekend.

DISCUSSION

Ok... I watched. I was curious... where was the "Battlestar Galactica" in this?

Basically, this is a sci-fi drama an a fairly decent one (keeping in mind it's Skiffy so the bar is already low as it is)... so in itself, that's a good thing.

However, it's using the name and some of the trappings of a well known franchise to give itself a boost up because it might not be able to stand on it's own without the connections to the other body of work. That's a bad thing.

I'd love to watch the second episode, but I won't simply because I'm not going to support the increasingly rampant "re-branding" of original ideas with old Brands, simply because the production companies and/or networks aren't confidant enough in their creation to let it stand on it's own.

Sorry Skiffy... you lost me. better luck with the next project.
