    The new show Caprica on Syfy!

    Was wondering what you guys thought of the show Caprica. i didn't think it would be as good as Battlestar Galactica, but once I saw the movie, I couldn't wait for the TV show. It seems they are just as advanced as the BSG, infact better technology. The story is just as complicated, but some stuff is making sense. They have this virtual world called halo band virtual world. I think its what created the Cylon imaging tech. Where even though all the Cylons are in the same place, they see what they want to see. I am so hooked on this show.

    Paprika, LOL. They named the home worlds after the zodiac signs.

    I've been watching it and it's interesting. I hope the story goes somewhere. I don't know what to think of seeing known brand names all the time, or the past 100 years of technology and styles all merged into one time frame. Like all the 1940's cars and then seeing a 2009 Jag, or a pre-transistor TV, then a Dell LCD monitor, then TV on glass, 3D holograms and VR glasses within 1 minute. It's a little weird.

    HAHAHAHHAHA, you mean the old school stuff from the Halo Band????????? If you mean in real time, I think they do that to split up the classes of people. I guess the middle class use the older stuff (mainly the people from Tauron) then all the Capricans (Higher class), seem to use all the cool technology. I guess since they are doing filming on streets, its hard to keep a certain class car off the streets, lol. I can give a real world example. In the UK, the taxi cabs all seem to be those old school cars, but everyone drives more up to date cars, they do that with the taxis though because its like an icon.

    It's probably more to do with budget.

    The repeat part of it is that the humans create cylons, cylons wipe out humans, then turn into humans, wipe out the cylons, and repeat. Something like that.

    My "repeat" was about "their" tech that we have "today".

    Not that we are descended from the original "human"-cylon hybrids - "we" found her juvenile skeleton - she never had the chance to reproduce. (Those angels just adopted our race.)

    But as Asimov wrote - the future cosmic-AC (computer - analog of course - way ahead of our primitive digitals!) once said "Let there be light"...

    But like cylons, we too are merely mechanical constructs - complete with the pre-programmed blueprint.

    Well the first cylon model, ZOE, is a digital copy of a soul, so she wasnt a simple pre programed construct. I have a feeling that this is how all the cylons are created. They are going to create avatars of people that existed and stick them each on the those special chips.

    As for Curiosity, yea its most likely also budget. I do like that they use CGI that looks sort of real. Unlike Santuary that has the worst most unrealistic CGI in the world.
