So intense, I was biting my nails and yelling at the tv.
that's fairly normal but I felt tense, chills down my spine, goosebumps, jumpy, all of that.
I love the ambient this show creates, making you tense the entire time you're watching and wishing it would never end.

do I really need to warn for spoilers? It's an episode review after all )

Have I mentioned how much I love the music in Caprica? it is amazing. Bear does such an amazing job of it. when "Was Love" came out, I spent like two weeks listening to it non-stop.

I hate that it's been such a short time and that it'll be so long before there's new episodes.

Thankfully, Doctor Who and Ashes to Ashes come back next week.
Caprica has been great in helping during the long Doctor-less months and now Doctor Who will help with the Caprica hiatus.
btw, how the hell with people cope without the Doctor for all that time he was off-screen since it ended until Rusty brought it back?
I'm still not particularly optimistic for Eleven but I've come to realize I don't like the idea of a life without The Doctor. and I think that's why haters continue to watch. I do hope I don't become one of those though. I'd hate that.

NOw I have a Doctor Who rewatch to finish, a Ashes to Ashes one and a Caprica one to do.

so who's watching this show?
I'm really loving it, it's strange and exciting and nothing like bsg
. bsg was fast, confusing,scary,urgent,etc,etc.
this is different. it's more thoughtful,more slow,sometimes darker and more dramatic and well, fairly angsty,they share that. and it also has this great menace, this shadow hanging over its head which makes you look at everything in a different light.

it's not a show for everyone. it's not flashy,it doesn't have epic space battles or explosions or any of those things people seem to think belong in sci-fi these days, instead, it has interesting,conflicted,deeply-flawed characters that you can care forever, a married couple that really do seem to love one another which we all know it's very rare, it asks complicated questions about religion about the human soul, about existence about family about humanity about relationships, and it intends to explore them.
it mixes all these questions with a family drama, with two families dealing with grief in their own way and with teenagers feeling lost and living in a morally-corrupt world keeping huge secrets from everyone.it's regular teen angst plus survivor's guilt.

I've been reading Caprica's recaps at TWOP they're written by Jacob, the same guy who wrote the Doctor Who recaps.
They're very very very very very good. they're engaging and interesting and so very thoughtful, he doesn't so much tell you what happened but his interpretation of it. they're the best recaps ever in my opinion. they're not funny like some or mean like others (House's come to mind) or mocking, they're just really interesting.
