Analyzing Two of the Most Underwhelming Producing Teams (in History) Who Have Attempted to Tackle Science Fiction
Ronald D. Moore and David Eick -
It speaks volumes about these two that guerrilla style stealth marketing campaigns always have to be rammed up their asses in order to try and artificially force "success" to come about for their work together. A decade after their initial debacle known as "GINO" (Galactica in Name Only) was rammed down everyone's throat by the stealth marketing firm..."Abraham & Harrison"....Ronald D. Moore and David Eick have about as much clout working for them as the late Merv Griffin. Their collective failure to grasp anything remotely related to Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica" has resulted in the overall cable landscape (and the SyFy Channel's typical schedule)...being as boring and as mundane as it always has been. In short, in the decade they had to take advantage of the opportunity they had to do something commercially attractive and compelling with "Battlestar Galactica" and televised Science Fiction overall...Ronald D. Moore and David Eick blew the opportunity with bad producing....bad writing....bad casting....lazy ass production design...lazy ass art direction...and lazy ass wardrobe.
Bryan Singer and Tom DeSanto -
These guys work together less often than the "Beatles" did throughout the 1970s. When they do manage to work together...their work is a big "yawn" such as the highly overrated "X-Men" films. Singer and DeSanto always pay respectful lip service to Science Fiction and "Battlestar Galactica" everytime the "Comic-Con" microphones are in their faces...yet they have never been able to get their collective shit together and make a "Battlestar Galactica" feature film. I have a theory about this. Forget the excuses involving "9-11"....Bryan Singer and Tom DeSanto are terrified that the world would find out that they suck as much as Ronald D. Moore and David Eick do in attempting to tackle "Battlestar Galactica." Singer and DeSanto may have been "Galactica" fans when they were kids...but it's the sort of fandom worship that always prompts both of them individually and collectively to run to the hills way too easily whenever Universal Studios rejects their proposals for a "Galactica" feature film, right? In short....Bryan Singer and Tom DeSanto have always given up on "Battlestar Galactica" way too easily.
Universal Studios executives: "Nope...we don't like your proposal for 'Battlestar Galactica.'"
Bryan Singer / Tom DeSanto: "OK....We're outta' here."
So much for their fan worship of "Battlestar Galactica"....right?
