The SciFi Channel apparently assumes that people will like Caprica better than they do Battlestar Galactica because it doesn’t have spaceships, which once again proves that the SciFi channel management really understands Science Fiction. Because you know how people watch the SciFi Channel hoping not to see spaceships on it, just like they watch the Home Shopping Network hoping not to be offered anything for sale, and watch BET but would like it better without all the black people. Battlestar Galactica without spaceships, or you know the last season of the show, hasn’t exactly been a ratings winner. Overall the ratings factor out to less spaceships = less viewers. Now of course Ron Moore doesn’t think that Battlestar Galactica should involve spaceships, just people brooding and throwing tantrums while wearing suits and dies and wondering about the meaning of the universe. Shockingly this version of Battlestar Galactica is playing to a drastically eroded viewership. Now while I like the idea of a TV series with Eric Stoltz, having to sit through Battlestar Galactica minus the spaceships, the science fiction or anything of interest, isn’t all that appealing.
