More Proof (As If Any More Proof Were Needed) That Universal Studios Always Has Its Head Up Its Own Ass With "Battlestar Galactica"
The "Battlestar Galactica" geniuses at Universal Studios are at it again, demonstrating their usual corporate inability to "hit the broadside of a barn" when it comes to anything and everything remotely associated with "Battlestar Galactica."
Universal Studios is making their bullshit "GINO" movie with Bryan Singer, yet they're prepping merchandise based upon the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series to go along with it. Let me say that again because it sounds...more than vaguely important in the grand scheme of things. Universal Studios is making their bullshit "GINO" movie with Bryan Singer, yet they're prepping merchandise based upon the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series to go along with it. This is one of those warped and deranged manifestations of total illogic we have come to expect from a corporation that never has and never will have a cerebral handle on what "Battlestar Galactica" really is.
Apparently, Universal Studios wants to go after the widest possible mass market audience with their "Battlestar Galactica" movie, yet they're basing their film on Ronald D. Moore's sham take on "Battlestar Galactica" which already failed with mass market audiences on both the old Sci-Fi Channel and NBC-TV, and they're merchandising products based upon the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series (the only commercially successful "Battlestar Galactica" thus far) to tie-in with their bullshit "GINO" movie. This isn't "Mass Marketing Logic 101", it's "Mass Marketing Insanity 101."
Not only do the idiots at Universal Studios not understand "Battlestar Galactica" in the slightest, but they also don't understand "Mass Marketing Principles 101." This will be Universal Studios fourth journey down the road of failure with Ronald D. Moore's commercially unsuccessful take on "Battlestar Galactica."
(1) The "GINO" series
(3) "Blood & Chrome"
(4) Their dreaded, upcoming "GINO" movie with Bryan Singer directing.
At what point are these idiots at Universal Studios going to wake up and kick each other in the ass? At what point are they going to finally admit..."Ronald D. Moore's bullshit just isn't working for us economically?" I think it's the employment security at Universal Studios that keeps these idiots going like the "Energizer Bunny." They know that they will never get fired by continuing to go down the path of economic devastation with Ronald D. Moore's sham take on "Battlestar Galactica." Unless of course, Comcast provides some corporate parental oversight.
