Caprica Cancelled

The sad news that Syfy had cancelled Caprica hit the internet today. Plagued by schedule changes, long hiatuses and not enough viewers, this amazing show has suffered the plight of many a sci-fi show. Many fans of the long running Battlestar Galactica dismissed it because of the major differences between the series. I submit that it was always meant to be completely different and that is exactly what was so great and unique about it. I truly believe that if Syfy renewed it and dedicated a steady schedule and advertising for it, Caprica would prosper. It has been critically acclaimed so many times!There are so many fantastic things about this show- the cast, the stories, the sets, the music, etc. All those amazing people lost their jobs today. We viewers have lost a smart and intriguing drama that rivals anything else on television.
I have never started a campaign to save a show before. I have never felt so strongly attached to a story or the characters in it before. Caprica has so many great and pertinent stories to still tell. Who wants to help save it?

  1. I could not agree with you more. I came to enjoy Caprica even more than I enjoyed BSG. I am deeply saddened by the news of its cancellation. I wish I know how to get more people to voice their desire to see Caprica get renewed for a 2nd season.
