So far Caprica is shaping up to be damn good as well.
The first "complete series" set included "Razor" but not "The Plan." Both are included in the new set.

In fact, the original 70s BSG has more in common with Moore's 2005 version of the series than Caprica does. In that some of the stories in the original BSG became story ideas in Moore's version of the series, and the two series cover the same ground.
That's what I meant to ask is if I could watch both simultaneously. I wasn't sure if there are any "spoilers" in Caprica that may make the experience of watching BSG for the first time less enjoyable. I'm looking forward to watching both of these shows. Thanks.
