How Much Longer is Universal Studios Going to Be a "Corrupt Republican House of Representatives" Blocking Anything Beneficial For The "1978 Battlestar Galactica" Series?
Universal Studios has been a "Corrupt Republican House of Representatives" towards the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series for the past 33 years...in every sense of the word haven't they? Not even taking into account their...one endless press release after another announcing a new Galactica film every couple of years (the latest being February 2009)...they have spent 33 years blocking and derailing any sort of common sense decision that might prove beneficial to the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series. I have every reason to believe that the corporate infrastructure at Universal Studios keeping the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series dead for this long is structured identically to the current Republican Party in that Universal Studios has its old guard management still in place who have always hated the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series since 1979, and they also have their far right, lunatic "Tea Party-esque" management members who have always hated the 1978 series even more.
In short, present corporate management at Universal Studios can be lumped together with the present Republican Party in that both entities are severely broken and dysfunctional. Personal bias is never supposed to enter the daily decision making process of any corporation, (of course I'm harking back to the good old days of adulthood in the Corporate America of the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s.)...but Universal Studios has repeatedly proven that nothing but personal bias will govern how they keep the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series under lock and key for as long as they continue to unjustifiably own the property. Universal Studios has been managed by nothing but corporate adolescents since 1979, and there is no sign that this juvenilism will ever let up.
Universal Studios has already long since proven that they couldn't handle the adult task of bringing the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series to the big screen, and I also have no doubt in my mind that they couldn't handle the adult task of upgrading the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series with modern visual effects capabilities and an honest to God digital clean up of the original negatives. They're contented with "Blu-Raying the Bajeebies" out of Ronald D. Moore's crap which ultimately ends up getting marked down 65% (routinely) on Amazon.com because Amazon.com can't sell Ronald D. Moore's sham take on "Galactica" in sufficient numbers for the life of them.
The past 33 years have proven that the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series is not going to go away just because Universal Studios has always wanted it to. What can go away however (with Comcast's help) is the present and past management at Universal Studios that has always kept the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series down.
