Reviewing Caprica

People have always been fascinated with the unknown, in relation to life. We find it such a unique experience, even though all kinds of life and existence surround us from microbe to pet cat. Somehow we feel it unique, alien, and completely un-reproducible. And we are fascinated by the possibility that man can take control of this knowledge and positively terrified by what we would do with such power. Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein leapt off the page to confront this, using body parts and electricity. In the day and age where reality becomes increasingly blurred with the ‘virtual’ reality of the internet, Ronald D. Moore asks the same question. Can and should we play God, or perhaps more aptly, gods?

Enjoying this? Then read the rest of my review of Caprica, on comicnews.info at the link below:
