Part sweeping soap, part mediation on the dangerous moral ramifications of artificial intelligence, the “Battlestar Galactica” phenomenon continues with this undeniably compelling look at where the real conflict between humans and the Cylons began . . . in a vibrant world remarkably like our own, “Caprica.” From executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick, “Caprica” Season 1.0 stars Golden Globe-nominee Eric Stoltz (Pulp Fiction), Esai Morales (“NYPD Blue”), Paula Malcomson (“Deadwood”), Alessandra Toressani (“Happy Campers”), Magda Apanowicz (“Kyle XY”), Sasha Roiz (“In Plain Sight”), Brian Markinson (“The L Word”) and Polly Walker (Clash of the Titans).
Hailed by critics as “beautifully shot and marvelously acted” (Mary McNamara, Los Angeles Times), “Caprica” Season 1.0 debuts on DVD on October 5, 2010 as a four-disc set and features Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound. Taking place fifty-eight years before Battlestar Galactica begins, “Caprica” Season 1.0 focuses on two powerful families – the Graystones and the Adamas – who find their destinies irrevocably intertwined after a devastating explosion. As the two houses struggle with the line where humanity ends and artificial intelligence – the Cylon race – begins, they will face off on a battlefield of corporate conspiracy, murder, sexual politics and family betrayal. The DVD features nine hours of extras, including 48 deleted scenes, commentaries, podcasts and both the unrated, extended and unaired pilot episode and the original televised version.
