Not about hardware and space battles

Caprica strikes out into uncharted territory for sf; an attempt to preemptively bore its audience.

"Caprica is a sweeping, highly emotional relationship drama — a Rich Man, Poor Man set in a science-fiction environment," says exec producer and writer Remi Aubuchon (24), who created the prequel with BSG's Ronald D. Moore. "The look is nostalgic, almost 1950s, with the men in hats, ties and stylish suits. It's not about hardware and space battles."

Or about Battlestar Galactica, apparently. No substitute for Deadwood or Rome but - let's face facts - I will watch the show regardless.
