CAPRICA GODFATHER MATRIX SIN CITY DYNASTY
Egads, so early into this show's run and it's strayed so far afield of its ties to Battlestar Galactica that it's hard to even know what the show is about. We got to see the Adama clan be very Tauron and do their version of sitting shiva for the dead, complete with some clapping (here, I've put a link to another famous clapping situation) ... Adama senior's hunky gay brother takes his shirt off to reveal Maori-like tattoos (why, exactly?) and we got to watch the other chick stuck in this version of the Matrix meet some unsavory characters and de-rez them (Tron, LawnmowerMan anyone?) and earn gold coins like in an 80s era videogame. Subplots galore - board meetings (Robocop), the dreaded word "closure" was uttered - ugh, the virtual nightclub world turns out is part of an entire surreal city (Dark City, Bladerunner, Sin City, etc) ... too many ideas - none fully formed (other than let's film the robot and switch back-and-forth between it and the girl!). As Michael Kors says, "You need to edit edit edit." The Esai Morales character seems weak, unfocused and ineffectual and he's supposed to be the rock of the family that later gives rise to William Adama, Admiral of the Colonial fleet fleeing the Cylons? The show has elements that look good, and a couple interesting things happening but overall so far it's pretty bad. It doesn't know what it wants to be when it grows up.
