    I knew people who loved this shit though. Is it really that good? Maybe I should Netflix it.

    The ending was brilliant. That's one show that knew the perfect time to go out.

    If like sci-fi even a little bit, you'll love it. Some nights we watched two shows in a row after work to see what would happen next.

    Here's a safe second video to watch, no spoilers:

    You are correct. And it's a shame Caprica started off so slow that it got shit canned.

    Didn't know that. I wasn't interested anyway. It's hard to get into something when you know how it all ends.

    It started to get good at the end. It was about how the first full robot cylon was made, but his dead daughter's soul was downloaded into it. It had a lot of religious shit in it that made it slow though.

    I think the episode where Apollo takes care of the black market leader was the one and only throw-away. Every other episode was important to the story.

    Oh yeah... I read that Cylons believe in one God because that carried over from her or something.

    amazing show but some of the seasons/episodes were slow. Breaking Bad is better.

    Great show! I rank it up there with The Walking Dead, SOA and Dexter (good seasons) but shy of Breaking Bad.

    Very enjoyable show. Glad I got into in the Netflix era, would have hated for all that shit to play out in real time.
