What Do I Consider Bowel Relief? The Cancellation of "17th Precinct"
In a merciful act of humanity we can directly thank the newly owned NBC-TV (by Comcast) for...and indirectly thank the creators of "Grimm" for....Ronald D. Moore's "17th Precinct" has not been picked up by NBC-TV. This will hopefully be the first in a series of steps by Comcast to gut the last remnants of any relationship going on between Ronald D. Moore and the old guard (pre-Comcast) at NBC-TV and SyFy Channel....where Ronald D. Moore was allowed to run free regardless of how bad (and low rated) his television programming really was.
It was getting a bit monotonous....wasn't it? I mean...no matter how badly Ronald D. Moore failed previously with one of his television series...there he was popping up yet again with another television series for either SyFy Channel or NBC-TV. Was it the first example of nepotism without biological family relations thrown into the mix? I certainly think so.
Ronald D. Moore was at this chronic low rated schtick of his for so long....his low rated television series were beginning to take on his boring and unspectacular personality....as incarnated by such non-actors as Jamie Bamber and Tricia Helfer. That's why they followed him from show to show. What would have happened if NBC-TV had allowed Ronald D. Moore to continue on this path of his? He would have started doing a traveling road show on the order of "Laugh-In" or the "Charlie Sheen Road Show" with all of his former "GINO" cast members in tow. I would like to congratulate and praise the newly owned NBC-TV for nipping it in the bud. This guy needs to go back to doing whatever it he was doing prior to hooking up with the Sci-Fi Channel in 2003. The gig is up. The gig was actually up eight years ago....but Ronald D. Moore and Sci-Fi Channel wouldn't take the hint.
As Ferris Bueller says at the end of "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"....."The movie is over.....go home!!"
