He just tweeted this...


THIS JUST IN: Syfy has canceled CAPRICA.

Was never able to get into the show... but it's never fun when your show gets stopped...

EDIT- more...

Caprica is toast. Syfy has announced that the Battlestar Galactica prequel has been canceled.
“The remaining first run episodes of Caprica – airing Tuesdays at 10/9c – will be removed from the schedule as of next Tuesday, November 2,” said the network in a statement. “These final five episodes of the season will be re-scheduled to air at a to be announced time in the first quarter of 2011, and will conclude the run of the series.”
“We appreciate all the support that fans have shown for ‘Caprica’ and are very proud of the producers, cast, writers and the rest of the amazing team that has been committed to this fine series,“ said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, Syfy and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions. “Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, ‘Caprica’ has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season.”

It's too bad but I think it was coming. I enjoyed watching Caprica now that i've seen all of BSG. I was hoping to see a series on the first Cylon war, now that looks like that might be happening and I can't wait to see who the 20 some Will Adama will be? Goodbye Caprica cast we hope to see you in other 'Syfy' series.

There needs to be a new channel for Science Fiction, not wrestling. I expected the show to be canceled, but never in a million years did I expect Syfy to delay its conclusion for several months by pulling it.

I couldn't agree more. The descent of SciFi/Syfy channel has been rather discouraging. Remember when SciFi channel relatively recently regularly aired Doctor Who, and a decade ago aired Farscape (the cancellation notwithstanding), and Babylon 5?

Now it is afflicted with ridiculous low-budget monster movies and as you said, wrestling...

it didn't help that they split up the first season with several months between so the audience never got a chance to grow ... not to mention they shouldn't have put so much space between the miniseries and the first episode

I'm honestly not too upset because I'm more upset that they didn't follow through on their promise of a show about the creation of the Cylons. Instead they give us a show about STO/religion. It's especially annoying because the stupid ads for the show keep on showing CYLONS yet so far they're nowhere to be seen since the show came back.

Uh....the Cylon has appeared in 3 of the 4 episodes so far this half of the season. Quite prominently in this week's, too.

This is sad news for me.:( Not totally unexpected, but still, sad. It is a shame people couldn't see the greatness in this show. I really think it had a lot of potential. Yet another show canceled before it could truly shine.

Pond Hopper

I'm sure a lot of people saw this coming from even before the series aired.

I think the plot moved on too slowly for people to find the show gripping enough to watch, sure we haven't even finished the first season yet, but nothing has really happened has it? Most of it felt like filler and to me it just felt like a chore to have to sit through all that STO stuff and Tamamamaras (whatever her name is) whining.

I never really took to the virtual reality stuff either, though I can see what it's future is in the BSG universe so that's unavoidable.

That said I did enjoy the the Daniel Graystone plot, that was entertaining. And I'm quite annoyed we'll never see how it develops into the first war.

DAMN YOU SYFY!!!!!! I though Fox was bad by canceling Terminator and Firefly, but you are going now the same road, can you not at least air the final five episodes?! Whats with the delay? or are they trying to rewrite it and hope to smash in a conclusion? Really bad choice guys..... only SG:U and Fringe now from the sci-fi section.

This massively sucks, I really liked the exploration of Colonial society and there were some very good actors on the show. Might not have been what people expected about the genesis of the Cylons but still, it was quite an intelligent show in my opinion. Didnt help that they had that long break... it was like people were trying to get it cancelled... *sigh* another one bites the dust :(

If Sci-Fi are dropping the last episodes of a season they've already paid for, why on earth would they pay more for a movie?
Still, if Chrome and Blood returns to a faster more action orientated angle the Franchise should be able to recover (assuming good ratings)

Did Sci-Fi order C&B before canceling Caprica? Or are they treating it as the Franchise's swan song?

caprica was kinda doomed anyway. and in 'doomed' i mean, it's a story with a finite ending. going into it we knew that it'd end with the creation of the cylons and possibly the beginning of the 'sentient robots vs humans'....i couldn't see it ever running more than 1-2 seasons at the most.

blood and chrome, i think, will be the same way. it'll tell the story of the first cylon warr and will likely start with the war beginning, end with the abrupt cease fire and the show is over.

it's kinda like the star wars prequels in a way, there's no need to tell every detail of all 20 years, just the hilights.

I'm not surprised it's been cancelled caprica just failed to live up to the high standards set by BSG.

Caprica had some very bad characters sister clarice why oh why did she get out of the car when we were so close to getting rid of her and the scene with the dancing cylon while funny was a useless scene.

Gallienus
October 28th, 2010, 10:52 AM
Hmm, you know I saw every episode of Caprica, but I always found myself indifferent towards it. It lacked a "hook" or a draw that would really get me interested. It's not (like in the case of Cloverdale in SGU) that it was all bad, I just couldn't figure out or see anything that would be of interest to me, personally. To see it canned now though before the run is completed is not unexpected, but still unfortunate. If nothing else I wanted to see how this would lead into Blood and Chrome but I guess now this might just be the end of that as well. Either way you cut it, it's unfortunate.

Well, hopefully SGU wont reach the same fate, and hopefully there will be some programming on the First Cylon War, eventually. I'll keep my fingers crossed as they say.

Wayston
October 28th, 2010, 12:47 PM
Sad to see it cancelled so soon for those who enjoyed it. Unfortunately I had a feeling this would happen even before it aired when I learned of what the show would be like. I very much hope that SGU doesn't go the same way, even though it is afflicted with many of the traits that make a lot of sci fi fans not care about Caprica.

Ironically I've always felt that a series about the cylon war was a much better move (but there'd better be some big giant honking spacebattles in there), and I'm glad that one is at least in the works.

Angela V
October 28th, 2010, 02:50 PM

Looks like Canada's Space is going to still air Caprica. I headed over to their website. They blogged about the cancellation. They also still have Caprica on for next Tuesdays. Hopefully it does stay and the fans in Canada don't have to wait to see the last five episodes of a cancelled series.

And now I'm going to have to make a new siggie. :danielanime08:

seems like a fast way to go bankrupt as a TV company to be honest, there's a reason why the newspaper business is overwhelmingly backing away again from putting most of their news reports online for free and making it pay to read again and that is that a) online ads still don't make up for the income that newspaper ads + physical newspaper sales/online subscriptions (and by analogy I'm guessing TV ads/cable fees) do and b) very few people actually decide to pay more to lose ads or get some silly accessories when they can have the bare essentials for free already

Don't be roundly judging the Japanese for the age of consent (never mind....everything else), the age of consent in Ontario was 14 for years and years until rather recently; it's now 16.

I also don't think that plural marriage has anything to do with the age of consent issue. And the holoband world is 'off the grid', remember? The club and all that hedonistic stuff aren't legal/legitimate applications of the technology, they're the work of people creating their own sandbox to play in.

Regarding the sex: yeah, I wanted to see more of the hedonistic stuff in the holoworld. There probably would've been some crazy lesbian orgies there, if that didn't boost the ratings, then nothing would've helped. Missed opportunities.

Anyway, Zoe or Lacy? I think they're both cute, although Zoe is a bit too pale imo. And Lacy has that adorable look. Yeah, I think I'll go with Lacy.

If you ask me, I believe when the focus shifted from Zoe to Lacy after the robot crash, that was what killed the show. Giving Lacy too much air time as that whiney terrorist who couldn't hurt a fly, was a buzz kill. Combine that with a depressed Amanda and depressed Daniel, the whole story was so depressing and lame to watch.

City TV was showing Warehouse 13. They started this past spring with season 1 (SyFy showed it the previous summer). Then they went right into season 2. So we were only a few episodes behind SyFy. However it meant Warehouse 13 was still airing with the new tv fall season. Some fraking nutcase at City TV decided to yank Warehouse 13 after episode 5 of season 2 and put on Amercia's Got Talent. And now nobody can get a clear answer if City TV plans on airing the rest of the episodes anytime soon! Just some vague thing of probably not. This was a show I could watch with my husband (he's not into sci-fi like me who needs to watch EVERYTHING almost. :) )

We speculated at the time that the just-announced DVD set would probably be delayed as a result of that new decision. After thinking about it for a few days, however, it appears that Universal Studios Home Entertainment has decided NOT to move the street date for "1.5" after all. They will put it on on December 21st, as announced, and include the five episodes in it which will not yet have been broadcast on Syfy. Bottom line: nothing changes! Is that stunning news, or what?

I'm not surprised...this was less than a cult show but considering SyFy's 30 degree downgrade the writing has been reflecting this was an incredibly flawed show.

Indeed! If those two shows were cancelled there would be little reason to watch Syfy anymore. :p Caprica is another great cancelled sci-fi show.

I agree with this statement; however I would have add Haven to the list.

I'm sorry ya'll show got cancelled. I didn't watch Caprica, the ads I saw did make the show look very good, because I wanted to see BSG first.

Syfy is just not what is use to be.

P.S. I'm glad other people dislike the fact syfy channel has wrestling on.

Noooooo, I bloody hate it when networks piss about with shedules and stuff like that and then cancel programs because they arent making ratings, heres an idea, make a show, show it at the same time every week, dont have stupid breaks in the middle, then people might actually know whats going on with a show and watch it...

damn you ShyteFi...

damm it! and the 5 last episodes will be aired in 2011.. blah!

This is exactly half of the problem, with gaps like this in the program how are people meant to get into a show, put it on, leave it, see how it goes, by the time it airs at this rate people wont know what had happened previously and not bother..

I'm actually quite annoyed, not so much because it was the best show on TV, as it wasnt, but it had the ability to turn into something really good and again what could of turned into a really good show has been screwed over by the bloody TV exec's again and there damned short sightedness...

caprica was kinda doomed anyway. and in 'doomed' i mean, it's a story with a finite ending. going into it we knew that it'd end with the creation of the cylons and possibly the beginning of the 'sentient robots vs humans'....

Ever heard of a film called Titanic?
Pretty sure everyone knew ths ship was gonna sink before they walked into the cinema..

You do realize a pilot has already been order for another BSG show

Huh?
Hows that going to work, unless SyFy change there attitude towards shows then everything that they do is just ruining shows for other networks.
Its not like anything BSG related will be picked up if they keep half arsedly ordering shows and watering down the franchise, nobody will buy into it after 2 failed spinoffs...
Maybe there should be something in the contract for the show that says the time slot stays the same and its guarenteed at least 2 seasons, otherwise the fans wont be interested and the actors and writers will just dry up as it'll be a short term job..

blah it really sucks and is depressing they canceled it just as the best eps are the season are happening. these 5 eps would've saved the show. well maybe not with scifi's crapass way of promoting it.

sometimes i wonder if it was bonnie hammer's plan from the start to take away all the real scifi goodies from scifi chan to make people suffer. and to not be able to watch imaginative stuff but the same ole dullards

sad indeed. I really liked the show. I can see why some people weren't interested, but i still liked it. One of the things i really liked about the show was that it was kind of a look into our future as a society. If we had holoband tech, we'd TOTALLY have a club V. Probably a New Cap City as well. Plus i really loved seeing Vancouver in the show

This is so sad. Now Syfy will have very few "scifi" shows.

Trust me, I am sure that kind of technology is right around the corner.

Has anyone seen RDM's thoughts on this?
Is he bothered or does he not care either?

It seem like every cancelliation a few fans come in to celebrate. I'm meh because I knew it was going to h appenSadly so did I brother jelgate. I don't read spoilers or what's coming stuff. So when I saw the Caprica marathon on my Tivo with all new episodes, I knew right then the show had been cancelled. :S

I'm half way through the new episodes (3 left), and I am getting more bummed out as I watch them. Caprica is IMHO a superior scifi show, even much more so than BSG (which was excellent in its own right). But unlike a lot of bitter people, I don't blame the SyFy channel, I don't blame anyone other than the people out there that didn't bother to tune in and view a great hour of scifi entertainment.

People definitely don't know what they missed out on. I hate that good shows continue to get canceled. I really wish more of this society would wise up as to what quality television really is.

I watched every episode live, but I really didn't think it was well executed. I didn't find the characters particularly likable. And frankly the show was rather dull a lot of the time.
