Watch the Caprica Pilot for Geeky Holiday Solace!


Hey folks! It’s Christmas eve, and that’s a bummer, right? Maybe you celebrate Christmas maybe you don’t, maybe you love absolutely wallowing in obscene consumerism (me), maybe you are eating a pint of Haagen-Dazs by yourself (also me), or maybe you are trashed and accidentally outing yourself with the fam (please god, not me)- Who cares!

Feel like getting away for a sec with some sci-fi escapism? Sweet, me too. Stream the pilot episode for the upcoming super-promising looking Battlestar Galactica prequel series, Caprica.

The pilot’s been around for a while, but it was exclusive for DVD for a bit there, so don’t miss it in case in sneaks away! Futuristic queer sex clubs! Crazy holotechnology! Alessandra Torresani, Eric Stoltz & pre-cylons! Sign me up!

If the Hulu link fails you, Syfy’s got it too. Caprica will be hitting our funboxes (televisions) on January 22, 2010. That’s year two-thousand-and-mofoing-ten! The future is now!

  1. I want you to know that I’m doing this. I’m doing this b/c you told me to and also b/c i am drunk b/c my gf’s family made me drink shots of something and then she left the house and i am too tired to do anything and there is a puppy here OMG IT’S ERIC STOLZ actually i really like this show i love it

    • did they leave the house to in turn burn it down to collect on the insurance? because in that case YOU SHOULD ALSO LEAVE.

  2. It is a good pilot. But man do I miss me some Battlestar galactica. That and katee sackhoff in a towel. just saying. I was pretty disappointed with “the plan” but I watched it any way.

  3. you guys sometimes i get worried that i won’t live long enough to exist during the part when we have holadecks

  4. ok firstly, why did everyone say when me and carlytron wrote a sitcom pilot that it couldn’t be over 22 minutes, that shit was fully an hour and a half.

    secondly, i really liked it and am really excitant, though am also very concerned about Lacey joining the chastity club, it didn’t work for Quin. Also was the terrorist guy in Skins? I recognize him from somewhere. I will have more feelings but for now I am going to sleep.

  5. Oh, my roommates made me watch this on DVD last month! They’re obsessed with Battlegate Starlactica or whatever. But I came in halfway and was very confused. And also very sad for the poor girl.

  6. drunken sci-fi commenting ftw!! i would watch this right now but i’m not on accounta i’ve already watched it three times and need to work through bsg again for all of the hot chicks, i mean story, but yeah.

    greatest/most awful first 20 minutes in pilot history. waste of a girl genius, boyfriends are d-to-the-dizzumb. also known as really freaking stupid.
