BSG Prepares to Time-Travel

Via Maureen Ryan’s The Watcher blog (and in turn via a couple other sources) comes word that Sci Fi has officially greenlighted the BSG prequel, Caprica. Galactica fans may proceed to jubilate, or worry, as is their preference. The new series—a clash between powerful families, set before the Cylon attack—seems sufficiently different from BSG that it will not be treading familiar ground; on the other hand, that means whether it’s good or bad, interesting or not, will depend entirely on the execution, since it will be more distinct from the original than some spinoffs.

Next—and I know I’ll offend some Eureka fans with this—I’d love to see Sci Fi develop another new, non-BSG series that has BSG’s level of depth and ambition.
