In case you haven't seen a billboard lately, Caprica premieres tonight on Syfy. The pilot is quite good, and, as I explained in my review a couple months ago, some of the same religious questions that drove Battlestar Galactica are central to the story:
Hidden deep in the heart of the Caprica pilot is a "how the leopard got its spots" tale—but for "leopard" read "Cylons," and for "spots" read "monotheistic religion." If anything, the conflict between monotheism and polytheism will be even more central to Caprica than it was to BSG.
And if the advertising image at left is any indication, the show will explore the preamble to apocalyptic war as a fall from Eden-- so the "sin" theme that emerged toward the end of BSG should be pretty important, too. I am certainly looking forward to seeing how the series unfolds.

(Oh, and that opening thing about the network trying to tank the series? I think the ridiculous amount they seem to have been spending on advertising for the last month or two disproves that little theory.)
