Episode # 1 The invention of toasters


Do you ever wonder if the person who invented a toaster did it because he missed the touch of a daughter killed by terrorists form the planet Tauron?  Apparently the creators of Caprica do.  Personally, I think it's because he was tired of putting bread on a stick and holding it over the stove, but who knows?

This episode was not great.  The two fathers--Daniel Graystone and Joseph Adama, who lost family members in the terrorist attack on a train both make questionable decisions in order to download what's left of their daughters into a Cybernet Lifeform Node or Cylon (don't ask, because I don't know either).  After seeing a version of his daughter in some kind of holodeck, Adama decides she isn't real and wants no part of Graystone's goal to cheat death.  He tells his son, the great Bill Adama, they need to let go of the people they lost and move on.  I guess we're supposed to fear Graystone now, and root for Adama. Frankly, I don't care.  I just want my bread to be warmer, and crustier.
