'Caprica's' final episodes to get a five-hour sendoff

November 19, 2010 |  2:29 pm

Caprica2 The spectre of "Caprica" continues to hover after its cancellation, as word came Friday that the final episodes of the series will air in a five-hour block Jan. 4, from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Syfy.

So we'll get to see "Blowback, "The Dirteaters," "The Heavens Will Rise," "Here Be Dragons" and "Apotheosis" -- episode titles according to IMDB -- and we'll hope that it brings some measure of closure to the show.

Fans didn't receive much closure from the network, though. Through a Save Caprica campaign, $2,350 was raised and 2,880 apples were sent to NBC Universal head honcho Steve Burke in an effort to keep the show on the air. Sometimes fan protest works; this time it didn't. The network went ahead and allowed the produce to be donated to City Harvest in the name of Syfy and NBC Universal.

Feeding stomachs, but no longer our imagination. Oh well, onward to "Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome."
