Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica, on 9 Feb, Sky 1 to be exact.
Questions of life, humanity, humility and survival – these are what science fiction at its best addresses, often challenging the status quo, delving into the hypocritical nature of our political/corporate actions and shining a light into the dark places of our psyche. Some shows act as modern-day parables exploring the extremes of our behaviour, technology and lifestyle. Unfortunately some TV series with great potential have been cancelled in recent months, on the whim of the network bosses (Dollhouse, FlashForward, Defying Gravity and the remake of V most recently). Lets hope the yanks give Caprica a good chance to tell its story, I for one look forward to seeing it.
