'Caprica' countdown: An exclusive new trailer and the home planet
On Day 2 of the "Caprica" countdown, we look at an exclusive trailer that reveals a bit more about the overall storyline, its possible direction and some of the familial, societal and ethical boundaries that the series will most likely cross.
