The Things Ronald D. Moore And Sci-Fi Channel Failed To Accomplish Together
1. Did not turn the "Battlestar Galactica" brand name into a money making franchise.
2. Did not improve upon "Battlestar Galactica" in any way. If anything, they made things worse.
3. Did not reinvent televised Science Fiction.
4. Did not successfully re-boot "Battlestar Galactica" for a would be new generation of fans.
5. Did not turn "Ronald D. Moore" into a household name ala' George Lucas or Steven Spielberg.
6. Did not make Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Tricia Helfer, Katee Sackhoff...etc....famous. They are still relative unknowns.
7. Did not make worthy contributions ("GINO", "Caprica", "Blood & Chrome") to the proud legacy of televised Science Fiction.
8. Did not make the Sci-Fi Channel rich.
9. Did not start a new trend in televised Science Fiction....(dark & gritty.)
10. Did not succeed in coercing the television audience into accepting....."dark & gritty."
11. Did not contribute anything noteworthy to televised Science Fiction.
12. Did not succeed in conning the television audience via stealth marketing into accepting anything produced and written by Ronald D. Moore.
13. Did not succeed in trying to pass off the amateurish producing and scriptwriting (of Ronald D. Moore) as a legitimate television viewing experience.
14. Did not succeed in making the Sci-Fi Channel wildly (financially) successful post-Ronald D. Moore and his projects.
15. Did not enhance the resumes of Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, Mark Stern, and Ronald D. Moore in any way.
16. Did not give the Sci-Fi Channel (SyFy) a singular....discernable on-air identity.
17. Did not rescue the SyFy Channel from its present predicament of being an ambiguous...commercial broadcast network.
18. Did not turn the SyFy Channel into a mecca of sound, business judgment.
19. Did not turn the SyFy Channel into something better than it unfortunately has always been.
20. Did not turn the SyFy Channel into appointment viewing either on a small scale or large scale.
