Those Who Own The "Battlestar Galactica" Copyright Are a Corporate Family of Underachievers
"That's it? That's all there fucking is?" That was the complaint heard loud and clear from the vast majority of television viewers who sampled Ronald D. Moore's sham rendition of "Battlestar Galactica", and found nothing more than boring characters walking around in business suits...and frowning at each other.
If you ever want to know what NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel's underachieving goals have been for the "Battlestar Galactica" copyright....look no further than the "GINO" and "Caprica" reruns...if you can even find them anymore.
No ambition....no scope....no majesty....no imagination....no aspiring to the bare minimum requirements of making a "Galactica" named television series on the SyFy Channel a watchable viewing experience, NBC-Universal and SyFy Channel's plans for the "Battlestar Galactica" property thus far have been nothing more than an elephant sound asleep from a tranquilizing dart. One would have more fun counting the plaster bumps on his / her ceiling in the den than watching anything "Galactica" named cranked out by Ronald D. Moore and SyFy Channel.
Can it be....(in addition to the many...many other dysfunctional problems associated with NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel's handling of the "Battlestar Galactica" property)....that those who own the property are just underachievers in their souls? That those who own it are just supremely boring, underachieving...clods? And it seems to be an epidemic in everything else they do as well.
Look at the main page of http://www.syfy.com/. Do you see any excitement there? Do you see or sense any excitement from any of the routine programs the SyFy Channel has to offer? What you do see is 100%...Polyunsaturated....Boredom in everything the "Galactica" copyright owners do when they venture beyond "Battlestar Galactica." This is underachievement at the corporate level.
Is there anything this corporate family of underachievers can do that isn't boring? It's no small achievement to make anything called "Battlestar Galactica" boring. Yet, that is precisely what NBC-Universal and SyFy Channel achieved. They made "Galactica" as interesting as a "Ron Popeill Veg-O-Matic" info-mercial. Their overall SyFy Channel schedule exhibits the same symptoms.
Underachievers unite for "Blood & Chrome!!"
