Exploring The More Obvious Reasons Why Ronald D. Moore's "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) Series Was a Mass Market Flop. Primarily, "GINO" Was a Brutally Ugly, Visually Unattractive Series. And Ugly In Its Ideas and Characters


1. The ugliest, most repulsive, and most disgusting looking spaceship ever designed. In short, a piece of crap in appearance. I think the idea here was to design any disgusting looking hunk of junk and get it greenlit quickly, as long as it drastically differed in appearance to the beautiful looking "Battlestar" model from the...."1978 Battlestar Galactica Series"....


2. The leading character in a television series who always goes out of his way to frown and never smile is a character mass market audiences will never be drawn to and never want to spend time with every week. OK, the premise of "GINO" was dark, but the darkness was over done to the point of "GINO" preventing itself from ever attracting mass market viewership. The "GINO" series was doomed from day one not only from being a repulsive television series to mass market audiences, but also from being a repulsive television series NOT CANON with what "Battlestar Galactica" really is, the...."1978 Battlestar Galactica Series."

3. On top of that, there was rape, torture, betrayal, backstabbing, illegitimate sex and ultimately nothing of what the premise of "GINO" claimed to be....a "Battlestar Galactica" premise.

Rape, torture, betrayal, backstabbing, and illegitimate sex being the easiest forms of melodrama for the untalented scriptwriters of "GINO" to write. These forms of melodrama straight out of the...."Aaron Spelling Prime Time Playbook".....from the 1970s and 1980s. Aaron Spelling at least having the taste and class to depict these unfortunate events off screen as opposed to Ronald D. Moore.

And so, instead of being a.... "Multi-Billion Dollar Science Fiction Empire"....a decade later, or a worthy successor (canon) to the...."1978 Battlestar Galactica Series"....Ronald D. Moore's "GINO" series instead continues to...."rot"....on DVD languishing in http://amazon.com warehouses across the country with its DVD season sets heavily discounted.

This Could Have Been a Huge Selling "Battlestar Galactica" Book


http://www.amazon.com/Battlestar-Galactica-Vault-Complete-1978-2012/dp/1781313350/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1419098876&sr=1-1&keywords=battlestar+vault

Instead, (according to Amazon.com) it immediately went out of print on the day of its scheduled release!! (Low Sales)

I'll tell you why as to why it probably went out of print on the very day of its scheduled release...

1. You cannot combine the "1978 Battlestar Galactica Series" and Ronald D. Moore's "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) Series into one book because Ronald D. Moore's crap "GINO" series is not "Battlestar Galactica." Moore's "GINO" series instead, ultimately turned out to be an inconsistent and incoherent mish-mash (a mess) of badly written and fragmented story ideas he wanted to do on "Star Trek", written in a...."Making it up as he went along"....scriptwriting style. Even worse, the limited production budget of "GINO" dictated and demanded not an out of this world and exotic world environment (as was successfully pulled off in the "1978 Battlestar Galactica Series"), but rather a contemporary present day setting with present day location work in Vancouver with present day contraptions (cars, eyeglasses, apartment buildings) all over the place. I have a hunch that if Ronald D. Moore ever comes to his senses and looks back on what an embarrassing disaster his "GINO" series was, his commentary on what he did would probably be...."I hate to say that I was young at the time...but, I was young and very very naive."

2. If Ronald D. Moore's "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) series was such a huge hit critically and financially, why hasn't it spawned a multi-billion dollar Science Fiction empire a decade later? With Moore's "GINO" series being the huge behemoth at the core of it? Instead, Ronald D. Moore's "GINO" series sits in the graveyard with all of his other failed tv series...."Caprica"...."17th Precinct"...."G vs. E"....."Helix" (Yes it's a flop because the SyFy Channel never acknowledges its flops. Just look at "Z Nation" as well.) And what the SyFy Channel considers successes for themselves would be considered flops by everyone else in the real business world, where the SyFy Channel has never existed mentally.

3. One of the supplements (goodies...if you want to call it that) included in this book is a sheet of notebook paper of some sort with the edges cut off into angles....with some sort of meaningless gibberish on it. Remember this? The great...."Notebook Paper Debacle"....of Ronald D. Moore's "GINO" - (Galacticas in Name Only) series where both Moore and David Eick were bragging about this great new Science Fiction idea they had come up with?

"Notebook paper with the edges cut off into angles!!"

WOW!! Give both guys Emmy Awards for that one!!

What grade school kids have been doing since the dawn of time in "Arts & Crafts" classes Ronald D. Moore and Davod Eick tried to take credit for. Appalling!!

4. Remember also how....Ronald D. Moore and David Eick... tried to take credit for inventing the phrase..."So Say We All?" Just one problem. The phrase is in a second season episode of "Space: 1999" from 1976...has been used in courtroom proceedings for decades long before Ronald D. Moore and David Eick came along...and dates back to centuries in the teens.

5. Also remember how, Ronald D. Moore tried to label himself as the...."Creator"....and...."Recreator" of "Battlestar Galactica" until both the late Glen A. Larson and the Writer's Guild had to get after him. Hopefully, Glen A. Larson's surviving family is staying on top of this.

6. What Universal Studios needs to do, is publish a clean "Battlestar Galactica" coffee table book (hard cover) without Ronald D. Moore's nonsense included in it. Devoted exclusively to the.... "1978 Battlestar Galactica Series".....what "Battlestar Galactica" is, always has been, and always and only will be.

The Other Day While Briefly Contemplating Why The "1978 Battlestar Galactica Series" Hasn't Been Remastered Yet With New Visual Effects...


....A Decade After CBS Paramount remastered the "1966 Star Trek" series with new visual effects, my memory then kicked right back in...

Oh, that's right!! The disastrous Universal Studios owns.... "Battlestar Galactica 1978".....where progress is never made in the management of this property.

In The Entire History of Broadcasting, No Cable Channel Has Ever Screamed "The Wrong People Somehow Stumbled Into Managing It With Disastrous Results....


http://www.Syfy.com

....More Than NBC-Universal's SyFy Channel (Formerly an Actual Science Fiction Channel)..."

1. Wrestling

2. A Cooking Show

3. Crappy horror B movies ("Sharknado")...."Sharknado" - Which the SyFy Channel has the unmitigated gall to refer to as..."An Annual Event"....despite its annual low ratings.

4. Overly eager to broadcast any hunk of junk Ronald D. Moore comes up with...."GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) and...."Caprica"- Gangsters in business suits filmed on location in downtown Vancouver....with the ludicrous claim that both shows had something to do with "Battlestar Galactica."

5. C.S.I. reruns...Yes, that police show with dead bodies and autopsies. No Science Fiction there!!

6. Overly eager to form a partnership with the worst studio and worst provider of horror movies in history...."Asylum Films"....This one was a no-brainer since it was bound to happen sooner or later that the worst cable channel in history (SyFy) would eventually mate with the worst movie studio in history...."Asylum Films"....

7. Ripping off the...."Walking Dead"....with...."Z Nation"...

8. Ripping off...."John Carpenter's Thing Movie"..... from 1982 with....."Helix"....

Both rip-offs of course....being absolute junk.

And The Lost Scenes From "Saga of a Star World", The Pilot Episode of The "1978 Battlestar Galactica Series" Just Keep Coming


Shortly after Commander Adama informs Colonel Tigh on the bridge that he intends to resign from the council, there is a scene (some of it salvaged on the "Galactica - Complete Epics Series DVD Set" from 2003, but still not there in its entirety) where Counselor Anton protests Adama's resignation from the council. Anton also simultaneously berates Sire Uri for hoarding food in the midst of starvation. These two simultaneous conversations then merge into the discussion of the fleet stopping on the planet "Carillon" for food and fuel, with Captain Apollo charting on the star map the route that should be taken.  The picture above depicts Counselor Anton approving of the stop on "Carillon." The scene depicted in the picture probably occurs after Apollo leaves with Starbuck and Boomer in tow.


Commander Adama and Colonel Tigh fear the route they are taking may be a trap.


Commander Adama studies the ancient writings of Earth.

Word To The Wise: Never Trust a "SyFy Channel Executive" With a Naked Monkey Statue In His Office Holding a Lamp Shade In Its Mouth



http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/syfys-dave-howe-new-strategy-755056

And never trust anything "SyFy Channel Executives" have to say...period!!

Oh look!! One of those "SyFy Channel Executives" have popped up once again promising much better horizons for the SyFy Channel which will ultimately yield nothing. This crappy channel remains the same no matter how many promises are made from its staff promising greener pastures. The SyFy Channel has logged a good decade of these"Fake Press Releases" promising this and that from its completely useless and thoroughly disposable programming department. Yet the..."Status Quo B.S."....at this thoroughly useless cable network always stays the same. "Sharknado" always remains on the air, as does wrestling...as does its thoroughly useless television series ("Helix", "Z Nation") that never should have made it past the...."Audience Test Phase"....if only the...."Laws of Justice within The Universe"....were functioning normally at the SyFy Channel.

What I find truly fascinating (and what should be the punch line (s) of this article) is that after being with the SyFy Channel for 12 years....David Howe still hasn't learned.....

1. How to entertain mass market audiences.
2. How to entertain a Science Fiction audience.
3. That he is still unable to define what Science Fiction is.
4. That he has never been offered another job in television domestically and internationally.
5. That programming like...."Sharknado"...is indeed crap and is not virtuous in any way.
6. That crap like...."Sharknado"....is not....an "Annual Event."
7. That it is always an embarrassment to refer to Ronald D. Moore's "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) series in any context.

8. That no one believes him at this late date each time he claims...."Big changes are in store for the SyFy Channel"...since these...."Big Changes"....still haven't occurred in light of the dozen or so previous..."Fake Press Releases" (just like this current one) from the SyFy Channel....going back a decade claiming the exact same thing.

Go back to England, David Howe, and give my regards to the Queen. The BBC might have better use for you.

This guy doesn't even have a..."Wikipedia"....entry. How positively Bourgeoisie.
