This is a fantastic time to be a fan of the Battlestar universe: On January 22, the TV edit of Caprica’s two-hour pilot finally aired, and just a few days ago, we were treated to the brand-new second episode, “Rebirth”. Most importantly, Luciana’s first appearance as Daniel Graystone’s assistant, Priyah, is less than a week away!
A prequel to the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica, Caprica is a thought-provoking, well-written and well-acted drama set in a retrofuturistic Caprica City, 58 years before the fall the Twelve Colonies depicted in the Battlestar miniseries. I’m really excited and passionate about this promising show, its compelling characters and all the conflicts that are about to unfold. Highly recommended!
In fact, one of the reasons why I didn’t write a single post for this blog in January is that I was super busy working on Caprica City, the German fansite that some buddies and I have dedicated to the makers and fans of Battlestar and Caprica.
Anyway, it seems Priyah/Luciana will appear in the next three episodes. Here’s what I think we know about them:
1.03 “The Reins of a Waterfall”
- Written by Michael Angeli and directed by Ronald D. Moore
- Airs Februar 5 on Syfy (US) and Space (Canada), and February 16 on Sky1/Sky1 HD (UK)
- Written by ??? and directed by Michael Watkins (she mentioned him in the second BSGcast interview)
- Airs February 19 on Syfy/Space, and February 23 on Sky1
1.05 “There Is Another Sky”
- Written by ??? and directed by Michael Nankin
- Airs February 26 on Syfy/Space, and March 2 on Sky1
Please note: Some of this info may not be correct. We’ll keep you posted. You can find all the airdates in the “What’s hot? What’s next?” box on the right, too. As you can see, February is shaping up to be a very exciting month!
See you on Friday!
