What Formal Education Do Universal Studios / SyFy Channel Executives Receive?
Not too long ago, there was a movie released called "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" starring Sean Connery. In the story, a bunch of misfits come together in order to achieve a common goal. You had a vampire....Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde.....The Invisible Man....Captain Nemo...etc. Obviously from the standpoint of what these characters had to do together...it wasn't necessary what their prior work experience / education was, or what the hell was on their resumes. They just had to team up....board a submarine...and stop some nut from blowing up London.
This pretty much sums up the circumstances (metaphorically speaking) upon which Universal Studios / SyFy Channel executives were assembled for their jobs. Their only duties have been....(from day one)....to team up and......(1) Trash the "Battlestar Galactica" copyright...(2) Keep rubber stamping one financially doomed project after another from Ronald D. Moore....(3) Keep putting crap on the SyFy Channel....and (4) attack the general public on Internet bulletin boards.
You don't need a formal education in order to do (this shit)....what Universal Studios / SyFy Channel executives do on a daily basis. You don't even need a G.E.D. You just have to be a stuck-up smart ass.....love Ronald D. Moore in a really creepy way.....have no talent and zero indications of original thinking within the realm of Science Fiction copyright management....and hate the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series to the extent of busting a nut over it. If you possess all of these eccentric qualities...you too....can board "Captain Nemo's Nautilus of Employment at Universal Studios / SyFy Channel"....and have employment for decades.
Somehow....I just can't envision the interview process for potential Universal Studios / SyFy Channel executives being particularly difficult for the candidates...or the issue of education and / or prior work experience even being raised....or even being mandatory discussion matter. What I do envision....is a series of key questions being asked in order to weed out undesirable candidates.....(1) "Do you hate the '1978 Battlestar Galactica' series?" (2) "Do you love Ronald D. Moore more than the 'Lord Thy God?' (3) Do you believe that uneducated 'Trailer Park Trash' is the desirable demographic to be shooting for on the SyFy Channel and in theaters?" (4) Do you believe that not attacking the general public on Internet bulletin boards can bring about the corporate demise of Universal Studios / SyFy Channel?
Answering...."No".....to any of these questions will result in you not getting hired.....Right?
