Caprica is simply an amazing series. It plays Mind Screws, it plays some tropes straight but then almost immediately subverts them in spectacular fashion. It creates sympathetic characters from every corner, and not only this but incredibly realistic characters as well. They all fail, they all succeed just as much too. It is suspenseful, and features heavy and consistent action. Even moreso, it involves heavy usage of mind tricks that leave those who can understand the twists and turns in pure awe.
Truly, an amazing series for the ages. In some ways, I regret there not being a season 2. In others...I don't know how they could possibly have improved on how wonderfully they nailed the first.
