Caprica

Reviews of the first half of Caprica's only season were written during its original run in 2010. Reviews of the season's second half were not written. These were posted as an experiment to see if I could use my blog platform to get reviews out faster, which is why these link to the blog. Please note that all reviews contain spoilers.
