    Should I watch Caprica if I have never seen BSG?

    sprspndx, Yes, Caprica is worth checking out and you don’t need to have watched Battlestar Galactica to watch it.

    For me tonight it’s just Kitchen Nightmares, Medium, Caprica and possibly Spartacus. But for the most part catching up on Thursday TV. Will try to finish up Buffy S5/Angel S2 this weekend.
