Caprica Cancelled

The Final Five will be revealed, tomorrow

Cancelled? I'm sad about it too.

… of Caprica that is. Syfy will air the remaining episodes of Caprica January 4th, 2011, hot on the heels of the DVD release at the end of 2010. Finally, now there will be more room for shows about spooky ghosts, professional wrestling, and vampires. From one angry viewer’s perspective, the network seems to be planning  to stick to its branding strategy of Syfy NOT SciFi. In other news, I just cancelled cable. Sorry Sanctuary, it’s not you, it’s me. I’ll see you on Hulu.

Only on DVD… what is this, 1997?

Hi, I’m one of the founders of Nerd Appropriate and the Rated NA podcast. I like good and bad sci-fi films and tv, pho, and the retrofuture. I am primarily an Xbox gamer, but also do some PC and Wii U gaming as well. By day, I am a research scientist, mostly in topics related to human-computer interaction and user experience. Before all this, fellow NA co-founder Matt and I played music together in various bands. I also used to make "comedy" videos for my high school morning news program before there was a place to post them online. Favorite Star Wars character? Admiral Ackbar. Best Bond era? Timothy Dalton (Craig a close second). Game of all time? Maybe System Shock 2. Thanks for being a part of this labor of nerdy love with us.

    I for one still can’t really figure out the ending of Galactica. It was great, just confusing as all hell.

    I really wanted to like this show, but I just couldn’t get into it. I think I watched the first 6 episodes and just found the characters grating.

    Ash, I feel the same way about Galactica, but I enjoyed the ride.

      I think the characters in Galactica were just amazing. It was good enough for my crusty old father to fall in love with a space opera, which isn’t his thing at all.

      Something about Caprica always turned me off. I think its because I already knew the end of the story.

        Galatica went a little nuts with the everyone is a cylon thing and the human/cylon love stories. Chief Tyrol was one of my favorite characters and I so wanted him to get a break at some point in his life.
