Ronald D. Moore's Sham Version of "Galactica" Has Reflected Universal Studios Indecisiveness With The Property
Universal Studios has never known what to do with the "Battlestar Galactica" property. They have only known what they have never wanted to do with the property ever again..."The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series. Ronald D. Moore's sham version of "Battlestar Galactica" has perfectly reflected Universal Studios indecisiveness over the property, and their thorough lack of understanding of it. This indecisiveness and thorough lack of understanding of the property has led to:
1. Business suits in outer space.
2. Edward James Olmos frowning eternally.
3. Art direction / production design looking like present day automobiles and apartment complexes.
7. Ugly people having sex.
8. Hairy backs
10. Boring scripts
This crap is not going to translate into a successful theatrical film for Universal Studios because it did not translate into a successful cable series for them. If a sham rendition of a beloved original Science Fiction television series didn't work in one format, it's not going to work in another format. Universal Studios modus operandi being...If it didn't work in the microwave, maybe it will work in the toaster oven. Universal Studios still not getting the unanimous mass market conclusion that Ronald D. Moore's sham version of "Battlestar Galactica" thoroughly sucked ass. Isn't Universal Studios "Black Tower" supposed to be staffed with people who have a bare minimum working knowledge of potential survivability in mass market environments? This sucker failed twice (on Sci-Fi Channel and NBC-TV). Sheeesh, Universal Studios. Give it a fucking rest.
The one thing Universal Studios does know how to do with the "Battlestar Galactica" property, is piss everybody the fuck off. They've been pissing everybody the fuck off for 33 years and counting.
The mass market conclusion is this:
Universal Studios needs to get the hell out of...."The Battlestar Galactica business." Because they thoroughly suck at it.
