SyFy Channel’s "Caprica" Nonchalantly Includes Gay Married Couple (Video)

The new Science fiction TV series Caprica may be one of the best and most honest portrayals of a married gay couple on television to date. (Which is great because SyFy has a TERRIBLE record of LGBT character inclusion in it’s shows)

The Battlestar Galactica prequel features a character named Sam Adama (played by Sasha Roiz) who belongs to an organized crime unit. Last Friday’s episode revealed that Adama is also married and gay. The show revealed this facet of Adama’s life quite casually – highlighting the normalcy of the relationship, rather than approaching it as the central identity of the character or the crux of the storyline.
