Finally we have waited! Cautious talks about upcoming filming of the new series across BSG universe come true. Thank the gods! And now, we have a first season.
First of all, it should be noted that this series is positioned as "science fiction family saga. What does this mean? This means that there is no such great variety of shots as in BSG, no space ships and the action takes place mostly in a few locations. In general, as in the case of Bloody Mary, I mean a drink - more Mary, less blood. What absolutely does not spoil the impression!
So, why should you watch it, if there is a little action, a lot of talks, mysticism and religion based on the plot? And then, to find out about the Earth and its inhabitants.
Religion - the confrontation of polytheism and monotheism, the intervention of divine powers, mysticism - all this is, and as in BSG plays the role of non-ultimate.
From a technical point of view, all (or almost all) made rather good. The sequence without criticism, especially in the depiction of the virtual world called New Caprica - monochrome world, entourage 30-es, airships in all their glory. Need to watch!
Some may be confused with the discrepancy level of technology in "Caprica" and BSG, and yet the action "Caprica" takes place fifty years before BSG. But an attentive viewer remembers that after the first Cylon War, people covered technophobia abandoned many advances in science and technology, which dropped them many years ago.
The atmosphere of the series differs from the BSG, less dramatic, is not that gloomy, but we see there the other times, which are called the Golden Age of the 12 colonies, when the power of human reason has prevailed over all, when a person is creating an artificial life felt like a God, for which he pays as a result.
I can recommend this series to those who saw the BSG is not only space-shooter, and more, those who are not confined to just watching BSG, but looked and read a lot of additional films and materials on this universe, those who are interested in how it all began because what it was over, we already know.
The cast is picked up well, everything in its place, all of which cause - the emotion from positive to extremely negative. Characters are alive.
Music - Bear McCreery, and it says everything!
