I'm in agreement, but not for your reasons.
To me this sounds uninteresting. Caprica is toast, and any kind of day to day drama will always have this overtone of futility. How much of the day to day drama and plot points will be completely irrelevant given how the future plays out in BSG proper.
I mean the show kind of set itself up as a, oh crap starting over, thing. Do the day to day trials and tribulations of the show's Montague and Capulet equivalents even matter to fans?
