When Caprica was out-right pulled off the schedule from the Syfy Channel, fans went daft with confusion. With only five episodes left many questioned why pull it so abruptly if so? Why not let it air? I was wondering that if it were so horrid to air on Tuesdays, why not run it Saturday nights or something? Scheduling and plotting is what dictates many confusing decisions.
But while the U.S. market was left to ponder our gap in Caprica entertainment, Canada’s Space Channel was able to air the Battlestar Galactica prequel series uninterrupted, to its conclusion. Lucky buggers!
But now the U.S. will have it’s chance.
Right after the new year rings in, the Syfy Channel announced via press release that it will air the remaining episodes of Caprica on Tuesday, January 4th, from 6 to 11 p.m.. That means you need to ramp up your DVR’s, VCR’s or what have-you-R’s and get ready to see what was in store for us after we watched a Cylon model make quick work of an organized gang.
For the moment, I wonder if they knew what was in the wind when they season was written? Will we get a proper finale or a disjointed, unsatisfying cliff-hanger? TV viewers will find out on January 4th. In the meantime, we bide our time and wait for a more action-oriented BSG spinoff called Blood & Chrome.

What I’m bummed about is no more Eric Stoltz or Esai Morales… or James Marsters on Caprica. All favorites in my book, but I don’t see anything on the immediate horizon for Stoltz. All upcoming projects have him down as a producer. Arg. There are only rumored appearances for Morales… and the same for Marsters. Sigh.
