Caprica 1.5 DVD is out tomorrow

The Caprica Season 1.5 DVD finally gets released tomorrow. Another review showed up at Here are a couple of snippets:

Despite the intended niche audience of sci-fi fans, the heady show was perhaps a bit too brainy for mass consumption. Because of that, it was admittedly slow getting out of the starting blocks. Then again, so was Fox’s "Fringe." Yet even that show, helmed by name brand J.J. Abrams ("Star Trek"), still managed to make it to a third season. If a science fiction cable network can't cater to its audience, what a series doing there in the first place? Perhaps SyFy needs to change its marketing slogan from "Imagine Greater" to "Expect Less." (...)

The extras include a treasure trove of commentaries ‒ some recorded prior to the DVD as podcasts, others recorded for the DVD collection. There are about a dozen mini-featurettes (called “video blogs”) created for the website. Executive producer Jane Espenson joins other writers and cast members in covering topics such as music, effects and the show’s mythology and religion. Finally, there’s "Re-Caprica," a snarky and fun five-minute catch-up on previous episodes.

Another great article appeared at, check it out: End of Line: A Farewell to Caprica (and soon enough, most other smart science fiction.)

And Boston Herald is giving away a free Caprica DVD. The contest ends today at 5 pm.

Elsewhere, Spoiler TV has the press release for Private Practice 4x11, "If You Don't Know Me by Now," directed by Eric Stoltz, which definitely airs on Thursday, January 6 at 10 pm on ABC.
