33 Years Ago, Television Producers Lou Scheimer And Norm Prescott Convinced Television Viewers That Mankind Was Thousands of Light Years From Earth And Our Galaxy
And they did it with a fraction of the budget Ronald D. Moore and SyFy Channel had. Not bad for a saturday morning kid's show. You see, Lou Scheimer and Norm Prescott had....IMAGINATION and INSPIRED THINKING. You can see it in the art direction, production design, WARDROBE, and theme music.It also helped matters immensely that Lou Scheimer and Norm Prescott had genuine affection towards the television audience and genuinely wanted to entertain them.
Unlike Ronald D. Moore and SyFy Channel who had nothing but animosity towards the television audience and broadcast any piece of shit ("GINO", "Caprica") they could throw together in five minutes. I'm stilll waiting for Ronald D. Moore and SyFy Channel to convince me that anything they do takes place thousands of light years from Earth.
