Caprica Season 1.0 DVD preview (bonus features)

NBC Universal has posted several clips from the Caprica Season 1.0 DVD to YouTube today. Most of them are from the episodes themselves, but there are three clips that include some behind the scenes footage and short interviews with Jane Espenson, Ron Moore, David Eick, Magda Apanowicz, Sasha Roiz, Alessandra Torresani, Eric Stoltz, Paula Malcomson, Polly Walker, Esai Morales and Brian Markinson.

As a sidenote, NBC has also been posting clips from the Back to the Future: 25th Anniversary Trilogy (out on October 26), so if anyone wants to keep an eye out for that Eric Stoltz footage (or, yeah, just see some more Caprica clips), go to NBC's YouTube channel.

Still no word on Blu-Ray release though? I want to support Caprica to help it see a second season, but I'm not going to buy a DVD set when I know there will at some point be a blu-ray set. Why no love for High Def viewers?
