I Think I have It figured Out Now....Episodes of "GINO" and "Caprica" Were Only Designed For One Viewing
I've been racking my brain lately trying to figure out why you never see episodes of "GINO" and "Caprica" ever again after their original broadcasts on the SyFy Channel (aside from their unprecedented low ratings.) I mean...these episodes can't be sold in syndication because no syndication buyers will purchase them, and it's very rarely when DVD releases of these two series even occupy shelf space in Wal-Mart or Target.
These two series were only designed for one viewing during their original broadcasts on the SyFy Channel!! After that...the "GINO" and "Caprica" episodes return to their tomb known as the "SyFy Channel Film Vaults." Of course, those original broadcasts served the purpose of satisfying the multitude of "political agendas" Ronald D. Moore and SyFy Channel had together.....and apart. Once those "political agendas" were satisfied by "GINO" and "Caprica" during the original broadcasts, the two series then became about as valuable to anyone as "Charlie Brown's Trick-or-Treat" bag (filled with rocks) on Halloween. No one wants these series episodes again after their original broadcasts. So...Universal Studios and SyFy Channel wrap both series in mummified bandages...and ship them off to the "SyFy Channel Film Vaults." There is no place in this world for the "GINO" and "Caprica" reruns after the political purposes of Ronald D. Moore and SyFy Channel are served by them. The two series have no place in this world (and neither will "Blood & Chrome") because Ronald D. Moore's series on the SyFy Channel are not designed for the entertainment value of repeated viewings.
Single Broadcast + Political Agendas = Mission Accomplished for "GINO" / "Caprica" first run episodes.
