Caprica

HOLLYWOOD — “I want to be the poster girl for engineers and computer nerds,” says actress Alessandra Torresani, and she’s off to a good start. That’s her with the apple in the ubiquitous billboard (pictured below) for new science fiction series Caprica, which debuts Friday at 9 p.m. on Syfy.

In the compelling Battlestar Galactica prequel, set on the planet Caprica 58 years before BSG’s journey begins, Torresani plays the feisty, 16-year-old daughter of billionaire computer genius Daniel Graystone, maker of the world’s first Cylon.

 

The Caprica series premiere will be airing on SciFi (yes, I still refuse to acknowledge the channel’s dym-wytted new name) this Friday (January 22nd, 2010) at 9pm EST.

I’ve already seen the premiere episode (as it’s available from Netflix).  It was rather dark… and I could have done without all the VR decadence and the religious fanaticism BS.  However, I am looking forward to it as a series.  I’ve always enjoyed Eric Stoltz’s work, and look forward to his performances.  Also, there are many exciting directions that the series plot could go in… but I’m personally hoping for two things.

  1. Lots of blasters (a la BSG: TOS)… and the opportunity to shoot it out with some toasters on a regular basis.
  2. And a story that builds into a climax similar to Conquest of the Planet of the Apes.
