Caprica 1x11, "Retribution:" First review and promotional pictures

The first review of Caprica 1x11, "Retribution," which airs on Tuesday (Oct. 12) at 10 pm on Syfy, is up at The Trades. A few snippets are below and you can follow the link for the full review (with spoilers).

Strong stuff as usual from this series, highlighted by some particularly good performances from Magda Apanowicz (as Lacy), Eric Stoltz (as Daniel) and Polly Walker (as Clarice). I particularly enjoyed the interplay that Daniel has with the Adamas, and Lacy trying to come to grips with what she's doing out of friendship for Zoe. (...)

Still, this is strong work and certainly not falling to any sort of traditional convention for a science fiction TV series. I can even forgive the time jumps here, as they're a small part of this episode and nothing anywhere near as annoying as, say, how it's done on another NBC/Universal property like the new series The Event (which in itself is such a mishmash of ideas from other shows, without anything to give it any real distinction.

Here is the official synopsis for "Retribution:"

As missions are carried out, questions and guns are raised in the struggle to carry out the task at hand.

Other fronts:

If you didn't watch last week's Fringe, Kacey Rohl, whom you saw (not) blow up the Atlas Arena in "Unvanquished," did the mandatory Caprica cameo of the week. You can watch the episode on Hulu.

"The Science of Battlestar Galactica" by Patrick Di Justo and Kevin Grazier had a presentation at the New York Comic Con. You can read about it at Space.com.  Snippet:

At the end of the fourth and final season of the 2004-2009 Syfy Network series, it was revealed that humans on Earth today are the descendants of an ancient race of human ancestors and artificial beings called Cylons, according to the show's mythology. For those who were looking, there were clues planted all along that this was the case, said Patrick Di Justo, author of a new book, "The Science of Battlestar Galactica."

"We had the story in the second season and pretty much no one put it together, but the clues were all there," Di Justo said.

DaemonsTV has the press release and preview for Glee 2x04, "Duets," directed by Eric Stoltz, which airs this Tuesday at 8 pm on Fox.

You can still catch Scott Porter on The Good Wife and Paula Malcomson on Sons of Anarchy in a re-run.

SpoilerTV has a 17 minute video featurette on the making of The Walking Dead, Bear McCreary's new show that premieres on AMC at the end of the month.

SciFi Talk has uploaded an audio clip that has interviews with David Eick, Ron Moore, Sasha Roiz, and James Marsters from the San Diego Comic Con. If you haven't read the report from NiceGirlsTV that was posted last month, you will want to check it out. It contains some major spoilers for the rest of the season.
