All I Have To Ask Is..."What??"
Universal Studios is releasing season one (and season one only) of "Buck Rogers in The 25th Century" on January 24th. Yes, the Gil Gerard series. They are doing so because season one is the fan favorite season while season two is donkey crap. Since when is Universal Studios doing anything on behalf of fan favoritism? This isn't the Universal Studios I know!!
The Universal Studios I know spent the entire decade of the 2000s verbally assaulting the general public on Internet bulletin boards such as http://forums.syfy.com/ simply because the general public expressed their fondness and affection for the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series. They even hired a stealth marketing firm ("Abraham & Harrison") to help them verbally assault the general public on Internet bulletin boards, in the decade of the 2000s.
Now suddenly...Universal Studios cares enough about the fanbase of "Buck Rogers in The 25th Century" to separate the good season from the bad season for an upcoming DVD release? What's next? Are they going to do a Special Edition DVD release of "Saga of a Star World" - The pilot episode of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series? With an actual digital clean-up of the original negative with even more deleted scenes inserted? Wishful thinking I know.
I could be wrong but....What I think is happening here...is that Comcast is now fully immersed (with its corporate sleeves rolled up) in cleaning up the bullshit at Universal Studios and SyFy Channel. The bullshit we all saw and witnessed during the entire decade of the 2000s. The bullshit where...you were penalized and persecuted by Universal Studios and SyFy Channel for simply being a fan of their classic shows.
It will be interesting to see where this unusual development arising from a newly Comcast managed Universal Studios...leads us in the future. Perhaps to a Special Edition DVD release of..."Saga of a Star World?"
