Universal Studios Ends Yet Another Year Fumbling, Mismanaging, and Not Doing Anything Constructive With "Battlestar Galactica"

What does Universal Studios have in store for the "Battlestar Galactica" property in 2012? Quite frankly, nothing constructive. What we will get from Universal Studios is their usual corporate nonsense with the "Battlestar Galactica" property:

1. The recently announced "Battlestar Galactica" movie (announced in October 2011) pushed to the side (once again) for their most inane excuse yet for not doing a "Galactica" movie. "The Munsters" remake.

2. Some snippets of rumors here and there (all through 2012) that a "Galactica" movie script might be being worked on.

3. At some point in 2012, Bryan Singer will finish up "The Munsters" pilot he is directing and QUIETLY move on to another project. Just not the "Battlestar Galactica" movie he announced in October 2011. That sucker (ever so conveniently) has been bumped back down to last place on everyone's priority ladder once again.

As Bad As Universal Studios is At What it Does, Why Does it Remain in The Business That it is in?

Universal Studios has proven three things:

1. They are absolutely terrible at owning the "Battlestar Galactica" property.
2. They are absolutely terrible at owning the "SyFy Channel."
3. They are absolutely terrible at handling anything having to do with Science Fiction.

So, why doesn't Universal Studios simply get out of this profession that they are in? They are terrible at it and no one in the mass market, public domain has ever liked their decisions involving the above three components. Additionally...

1. "Battlestar Galactica" remains the sleeping giant it always has been no thanks to Universal Studios, Ronald D. Moore, and Bryan Singer.

2. The SyFy Channel remains the meandering cable station without direction and purpose it always has been no thanks to owner Universal Studios.

3. Universal Studios remains the last ambassador on Earth the Science Fiction genre would want representing it.

Side Note:

Be sure to meander your way on over to in order to purchase the following books:

1. "Universal Studios vs. The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series.
2. "Whistling in the Dark - Ronald D. Moore's Failed Attempt to Revive Battlestar Galactica."
3. "Bonnie Hammer's Sci-Fi Channel"
4. "Caprica Sucks"
5. "Blood & Chrome: SyFy Channel's Sham Interpretation of Battlestar Galactica Continues"

Tell them Russell Sanders sent you. Ha!! Ha!!!

Better luck next time, Russell!!

Ha!! Ha!!!

Why Universal Studios, Ronald D. Moore, and Bryan Singer Always Fail to Achieve Pop Culture Adulation

Generally speaking, the three of them either joined at the hip or working on their own never set out to make the best product they can make, but rather abuse every opportunity at making a movie or television series by turning the venture into an intensely personal favor they give to themselves. Combine this with their joint and individual typically common trait of never having their fingers on the pulse of what audiences want to see (and always could care less about it), and you have three entities who should not be in the professions that they are in, period.

Ronald D. Moore -

Technically, Ronald D. Moore may have been hired to produce and write a television series called "Battlestar Galactica" in 2003, but he clearly and transparently had other things on his mind when he took on the job. Doing a "Battlestar Galactica" television series was the farthest thing from his mind in 2003. Instead, he abused and misused the opportunity of continuing the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series pop culture was clamoring for by instead, doing a version of "Star Trek: Voyager" that Paramount Pictures and Rick Berman wouldn't let him do. What showed up on the old Sci-Fi Channel in 2003 wasn't "Battlestar Galactica" but rather...."Star Trek: Psychoses." Sci-Fi Channel and Universal Studios being no lovers of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series said to Ronald D. Moore at the time...

"Groovy!! Let's do it!!"


"We'll try and pass it off as a 'Battlestar Galactica' series."

They got their reward with four unprecedented, low rated seasons on the old Sci-Fi Channel.

Of course, no one in the mass market domain wanted to see a dark, boring, and violent version of "Star Trek: Voyager"...but Ronald D. Moore and Sci-Fi Channel sure did.

Bryan Singer -

With so many projects on Bryan Singer's plate at any one time, he always gets remarkably little done. Right now, we have his verbal proclamation (in October 2011) of wanting to do a "Battlestar Galactica" feature film which we already know will never come to fruition because we all know Bryan Singer and how he lacks a fundamental work ethic, combined with Universal Studios life long desire of not wanting to do such a film despite their intentionally misleading, biennial announcements. We know he will indeed get "The Munsters" done because this is Universal Studios pet project (and excuse) for not wanting to do the "Galactica" feature film they announced in October 2011. So of course, Universal Studios will RAM "The Munsters" into the fast track of the production process. I predict "The Six Billion Dollar Man" will change producers and directors dozens of times before the project is abandoned. "X-Men 4", "X-Men 5", and the "X-Men Super Bowl 2013 Special with Lady GaGa" will probably all get done, but not by Bryan Singer.

Like Ronald D. Moore, Bryan Singer doesn't care about the directions pop culture winds are favoring but rather, makes the movies he makes (when he manages to make any at all) because it benefits and satisfies his personal tastes.

Universal Studios -

Universal Studios is the sworn arch enemy of whatever is popular in pop culture such as the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series. Just read the archived board from 1999 to 2005. Never will you see such corporate hatred unleashed upon the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series, its fanbase, and anything remotely connected to both.

Universal Studios is without the doubt, the most pop-culture unfriendly Hollywood entity that has ever existed.

Without a doubt, the main reason why Universal Studios, Ronald D. Moore, and Bryan Singer will never achieve pop culture adulation, is because of the staggering lack of imagination and the staggering lack of inspired thinking among the three of them.

Let's Reminisce About The Good Old Days Of Two Months Ago, Shall We?

When it seemed like (for a few seconds at least), Bryan Singer was moving forward with a "Battlestar Galactica" film with his undivided attention.

This of course, was before a few weeks later when Bryan Singer's schedule (ever so strategically and conveniently, much to the detriment of the "Battlestar Galactica" property) began to stockpile with such superfluous projects as:

1. The Munsters
2. X-Men 4, 5 and the "X-Men Super Bowl Special with Lady GaGa."
3. The Six Billion Dollar Man with Leonardo DiCaprio

If it wasn't for Universal Studios and Bryan Singer, the Internet news woudn't get all too frequently littered and clogged up with their usual (and intentionally misleading) "Battlestar Galactica" announcements.

Universal Studios Uses "Mental Illness" Accusations to Repel Personal Responsibility Away From Themselves

Don't take the stealth marketers (working for Universal Studios) word for it that the author is mentally ill. Come to your own conclusions. Read the above book yourself and discover to what extent Universal Studios has avoided facing personal responsibility while owning the "Battlestar Galactica" copyright. When you're finished reading the book, you'll more than likely discover that it's the Universal Studios executives deliberately mismanaging the "Battlestar Galactica" property who are the ones with the marbles kicking around in their heads.

Nothing says..."repelling personal responsibility away from themselves" more than the practice Universal Studios engaged in when they hired the stealth marketers from the stealth marketing firm "Abraham & Harrison" to leave deliberately misleading book reviews of the above book on Yes, your eyes aren't deceiving you. These deliberately misleading book reviews which Universal Studios is solely responsible for accuses the author of being "mentally ill." Apparently, in the world of stealth marketing (as practiced by Universal Studios), there is no such thing as the term "libel."

These deliberately misleading book reviews (on no less) point to a sad fact about the entire Universal Studios corporation. That they will say and do anything in order to repel personal responsibility away from themselves in managing the "Battlestar Galactica" property much, much better than they have been doing for the past 33 years.

Universal Studios will say anything and do anything to avoid doing the following:

1. Manage the "Battlestar Galactica" property in an adult and mature manner.
2. Release a professionally produced DVD set of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series.
3. Manage to get a theatrical film based upon the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series made.

Universal Studios isn't in the pro- "Battlestar Galactica" business. They are in the "avoid adult responsibility at all costs while inadverdently owning the 'Battlestar Galactica' property" business.

Wouldn't it have been easier for Universal Studios to have simply...

1. Made a "1978 Battlestar Galactica" theatrical film and released it ages ago?

2. Released a professionally produced DVD set of the 1978 series instead of that "hunk of junk"-(Battlestar Galactica - The Complete Epic Series) they released in October 2003?

3. Not spent the past decade and a half arguing with the general public on Internet bulletin boards (primarily the old over how much they think (as a corporation) the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series sucks?

4. Not hired the stealth marketing firm "Abraham & Harrison" to leave deliberately misleading and libelous book reviews of the above book on

I guess not.

According to Universal Studios Stealth Marketers Such As Russell Sanders, You're In a Delusional State of Mind If You Notice That This DVD Set Is a "Hunk of Junk"

According to Universal Studios stealth marketers such as Russell Sanders, you're in a delusional state of mind if you notice what is physically in front of you with this DVD set:

1. That many discs are cracked.
2. That many discs can't be pried from their storage trays.
3. That many discs freeze in play mode.
4. That many episodes weren't digitally remastered.
5. That the pilot episode, "Saga of a Star World" is in terrible condition on this DVD set.

According to Universal Studios stealth marketer Russell Sanders, the manufacturer of this atrocious DVD set merely "did the best job he could do under the circumstances and resources available to him at the time."

Oooohh, poor baby. Would the manufacturer of this DVD set like a glass of warm milk and cookies before the consumers who were suckered into buying this DVD set (by Universal Studios) tuck him in for the night?

Bryan Singer's "Superman Returns" is The Worst Superhero Movie Ever Made

At no other time in cinema history, has a superhero movie failed on so many levels to capture the essence of what a specific superhero is supposed to be. Bryan Singer had a hand in the absolute mess of the script, and he was solely responsible for directing this mess.

"Superman Returns" was Bryan Singer's misguided attempt at updating the "Superman" character for the 21st Century. His unprecedented failure in doing so is due in no small part to his failure in grasping the essence of who and what the character is. First and foremost, "Superman" is a family friendly, "Rated - G" character." "PG-13" if you want to begin pressing your luck. Parents should feel comfortable in bringing their children to see a "Superman" movie regardless of whether or not "Superman" has been updated for the 21st Century. What we got instead from Bryan Singer, is a "peeping tom Superman", "a manic-depressive Superman", "a Superman who barely speaks", and a "Superman" overall that movie audiences did not warm to and embrace as they did with Christopher Reeve in the starring role and Richard Donner directing.

Bryan Singer's "Superman" as he interpreted the character was extremely disturbing to watch because quite frankly the character had more than a few marbles kicking around in his head (much like all of the Universal Studios executives poorly disguised as members of the general public on the Colonial Fleets forum.) Bryan Singer's "Superman" was also more than a bit slow in street smarts. Do you mean to tell me that after all of the years "Superman" had Lex Luthor as an arch-enemy, he wouldn't expect to be stabbed by a kryptonite knife and then ambushed by Luthor's henchmen a short time later? That he wouldn't expect Lex Luthor to do something evil to him in more general terms when staring at him eye to eye in such close proximity in his "Fortress of Solitude?" That Luthor's henchmen wouldn't always be lurking in the shadows waiting for some supernatural device to render "Superman" mortal, and thus make him susceptible to an ass beating?

Bryan Singer's "Superman" also suffers from romantic delusions. Why would "Superman" expect Lois Lane to be waiting for him romantically after a five year absence, and not saying goodbye to her before that five year absence? Of course in logic terms, the five year absence really wasn't necessary anyway. He could fly at supersonic, super-duper speed to planet Krypton's remains in space, and fly back to the arms of Lois Lane at the same speed. Round trip time? Three minutes. He could have made hundreds of those round trip flights. He could even have kept in constant communication with Lois Lane during all of those flights via a suped up cell phone (taking cell phone pictures even) and constantly narrating to her what he was doing. And then be home for dinner with Lois Lane every night. Of course, "Superman" being "Superman", he could have any woman on Earth he wanted. So, why would he dwell on Lois Lane when it was apparent and written in stone that she had moved on to a new life with another man?

Bryan Singer's "Superman" is also a manic-depressive (much like all of the Universal Studios executives posting on the Colonial Fleets forum.) Isn't "Superman" supposed to be invulnerable to...everything? Even mental illness? (Attention: Russell Sanders.) Because of all of these blunders in "Superman Returns", Bryan Singer's "Superman" is without a doubt the most mass market, mass commercial unfriendly superhero put on the movie screen. There is no reason whatsoever for any demographic group to embrace Bryan Singer's "Superman" for any reason. The character is a self-absorbed, manically-depressed idiot with not one commercially attractive characteristic whatsoever for mass market audiences to warmly embrace. That is why at the end of the movie as Bryan Singer's "Superman" was soaring through the clouds with John Williams stolen theme music playing in the background (with a glum expression on his face) there were scant claps coming from the theater audience.

The Kid

Aaahh, yes. "The Kid." "Superman" has a son in this movie, and he has about as much acting talent as Brandon Routh does. Film critic Roger Ebert brought up a good point. "Why would a little boy with such superpowers be so sad all of the time? Staring blankly like a deer in headlights?" Wouldn't a little boy (or girl) with such powers be smiling all of the time with rosy cheeks and always getting into mischief? Wouldn't a child be thrilled with such powers even if the child was half Kryptonian? "Superman" and his son in this movie need intense psychiatric help (much like all of the Universal Studios executives posting on the Colonial Fleets forum.) These characters aren't normal, and they aren't mass market attractive. It also points to a disturbing aspect of Bryan Singer as a film director. He isn't versatile as a film director. He isn't able to conjure up and extract performances from actors involving happiness, ecstatic joy, spontaneity and normal interactions. Also, what should have been stellar acting talent in "Superman Returns" from everyone in the cast simply wasn't on display. Even the old war horse Frank Langella seemed as though he was reciting dialogue instead of acting. Not earning any browny points either for not correctly reciting the iconic sentence..."Truth, Justice, and the American Way." Bryan Singer and his script girl replaced it with the idiotic "Truth, Justice, and all that stuff." Brilliant move, Singer. Not.

Dialogue, dialogue. Where is the dialogue?

Roger Ebert pointed out that a man and woman who supposedly had a passionate love affair with one another have remarkably little to say to one another in this movie. Ebert called Bryan Singer's "Superman"....

"Monosyllabic and microsyllabic."

Roger Ebert also pointed out that Bryan Singer's "Superman" has scant dialogue throughout this movie overall.

Characters come alive and the audience gets inside of the character's heads with a shit load of dialogue. That's how an audience eventually warms to and bonds with characters. Perhaps Bryan Singer missed that class at filmmaking school during his "Steven Spielberg sponsored internship." I also think that Singer was trying to cover for the fact that some of his cast members (the younger actors) weren't the best actors in the world. So he kept the dialogue of certain cast members (including Brandon Routh and the kid) as scant as possible. I wouldn't be a bit suprised if the scant dialogue was ad libbed on the spot during the actual filming, scaled down from lengthy dialogue.

No original ideas, Bryan?

Bryan Singer swiped John Williams theme music for "Superman Returns", and swiped the crystal design of Krypton from the infinitely superior Richard Donner original. Why couldn't Singer simply have started from scratch with....originality and imagination? There's the problem. It's evident that he lacks both, much like Ronald D. Moore.

What is Bryan Singer working on now? "The Munsters" for NBC-TV.

It's becoming increasingly evident in the current generation of filmmakers including Bryan Singer and Ronald D. Moore, that they are trying to claim great ideas from the past as being their own. Thinking that no one for example, would remember the theme music and crystal design from Richard Donner's "Superman - The Movie" from 1978. They are doing this because they lack originality and imagination of their own.

My Allies Are Growing. Others Are Beginning to Realize That Universal Studios And Bryan Singer Suck

It's becoming increasingly apparent that this Universal Studios / NBC-TV remake of "The Munsters" has two sinister, ulterior motives:

1. Using "The Munsters" brand name as nothing more than an instrument for cashing in on the popularity of "True Blood." In truth, it will have nothing to do with "The Munsters."

2. Using this "Munsters" television project as an intentional barrier and delay for starting up the "Battlestar Galactica" theatrical film. Universal Studios doesn't care if these substitute projects are crap or not. As long as these substitute projects (The Munsters) postpone indefinitely the start-up of any "Battlestar Galactica" theatrical film.

The Timing of "The Munsters" Television Pilot Couldn't Have Been Any More Detrimental to The "Battlestar Galactica" Movie

By golly!! NBC-TV wanted work to begin right away on their "Munsters" television pilot. You mean, NBC-TV couldn't have been gracious and waited 2 years until Bryan Singer was done with his "Battlestar Galactica" movie he announced in October 2011?? (The "Munsters" is going to tank in the ratings anyway, either now or later.) Nope!! They wanted "The Munsters" right away!! As soon as possible!! At the very time the "Galactica" movie (announced in October 2011) should have been moving into pre-production!!

By coincidence (which really means "corporate, surgical precision timing with a laser beam" at Universal Studios whenever "Battlestar Galactica" is the topic of the moment), the production of the "Battlestar Galactica" movie (announced 1.5 months before "The Munsters" television pilot) overlapped conveniently on top of the ever so strategically timed "Munsters" pilot. So quite logically (at Universal Studios anyway), "Battlestar Galactica" being the project that was announced "first", now gets kicked to the bottom of the priority ladder in favor of "The Munsters."

Isn't it truly amazing how these "timing issues" always detrimental to ("Battlestar Galactica") always work out to the "micro-milli-second" at Universal Studios? I'm reminded of the year 2009 when the "Excalibur" movie was placed on the high priority list ahead of "Battlestar Galactica" despite "Battlestar Galactica" being announced sooner. (Universal Studios could have hired another director to direct "Galactica".) By golly, I'm also reminded of the year 2001 when "X-Men 2" was placed on the high priority list ahead of "Battlestar Galactica" despite "Battlestar Galactica" being announced sooner. (Universal Studios could have hired another director to direct "Galactica.")

But you see, this isn't how Universal Studios has set up the rules of the "Poker" game when they deal with "Battlestar Galactica." Their rules of the game are:

1. They and Bryan Singer announce a new "Galactica" movie every two years.

2. An ever so conveniently timed project (such as "The Munsters") comes along at the time the "Galactica" movie is supposed to be entering pre-production, and derails "Galactica."

3. Bryan Singer swears allegience to the newer project.


4. Universal Studios doesn't think "outside of the box" such as entertaining the radical notion of hiring anoter director to take Bryan Singer's place.

How am I doing so far, Russell? Have I struck one of your "rage nerves" yet?

It's An Established Fact That There Is a Conspiracy Going On At Universal Studios Against The "1978 Battlestar Galactica" Series

So, why do they continue to make movie announcements (now every two years) of "Battlestar Galactica" coming to a theater near you? Yet they never get around to actually making these movies? I think it has everything to do with sadomasochism, Universal Studios is a sadomasochistic corporation, and I also believe this new behavior of theirs (announcing a new "Galactica" movie that never comes to fruition) is a leftover, nasty remnant of their stealth marketing campaign (in full force eight years ago) with hired thugs from the stealth marketing firm "Abraham & Harrison." Universal Studios continues to engage in any and every behavior it can to try and break up the fanbase of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series. In the 2000s, it was Ronald D. Moore's "GINO" series, now it is movie announcements every two years. It hasn't worked yet (after a decade) but Universal Studios never stops trying.

It has been interesting to observe that the only people Universal Studios continues to recruit in order to aid them in their continued, deliberate mismanagement of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series and the "Galactica" copyright overall are "below the line" producers and / or directors who haven't gone anywhere significant in Hollywood (career wise) after an extended and reasonable period of time, and who ultimately end up affiliated with Universal Studios / SyFy Channel just to survive.

Such as Ronald D. Moore and Bryan Singer.

I can almost hear Bryan Singer now...

"If there's a paycheck in it for me to announce intentions to direct a 'Battlestar Galactica" movie every two years and then back out of it, count me in!!"

So, it's very very reasonable to assume that this "schtick" of announcing a "Galactica" movie every two years (2009, 2011 and counting) and then not following through is part of this "anti-Galactica Conspiracy" at Universal Studios. - Disrupt and disappoint the fanbase of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series in any way they can.

Russell Sanders, Who Believes The World is Coming to An End in 2012, Still Tries to Practice "Pop-Psychology" On His Enemies

As the forces of "2012 Demonic Evil" close in on Russell Sanders, he attempts to fight them off at the front door of the "Universal Studios Black Tower."

Russell Sanders practicing "pop-psychiatry" is the equivelent of the late George Carlin practicing religion. Yet that is what Russell Sanders continues to try and do a decade after his "" forum went belly up in the winds of his salaried stealth marketing nonsense.

My valid and astute criticisms of Universal Studios over the years haven't been about me or any aspect of me. What they have been about, is what has been physically evident for all of the world to see for the past 33 years. Namely, that Universal Studios executives have had a personal vendetta against the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series and always will. It has been overwhelmingly, physically evident for the past 33 years and always will.

To point out such physical evidence on display for the past 33 years for some reason has always prompted "mental illness" accusations from Russell Sanders. It has always prompted this severely deranged "loony tune"- (Russell Sanders) to accuse those who point out the "overwhelmingly obvious" of the past 33 years as being "nuts." Yet it has been Russell Sanders all along who has been "nuts."

I find it to be tremendous emotional and psychological insecurities on the part of Russell Sanders for him to go to such lengths as the following in trying to label someone as being "mentally ill."

1. Claiming to have been a "Drill Sergeant" at some point in his life and thus (??) having accumulated vast intellectual knowledge of the psychiatric profession merely by studying the psychological goings on of the recruits under his charge. And then trying to apply the supposed psycholical abnormalities he found in his recruits to those who point out the "overwhelmingly obvious" in Universal Studios deliberate mismanagement of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series.

2. His latest claim, somehow having in his possession the "F.B.I. Field Manual" for studying the criminally insane. And he (once again) tries to apply those psychiatric findings to those who merely point out the "overwhelmingly obvious" in Universal Studios deliberate mismanagement of the "Battlestar Galactica" property for the past 33 years.

3. Accusing those who point out the "overwhelmingly obvious" in Universal Studios deliberate mismanagement of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series as being members of a "hate group."

4. Claiming to be a member of the military / special attache / officer consultant in Iraq who yet still finds the time to dwell on those who point out the "overwhelmingly obvious" in Universal Studios deliberate mismanagement of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series, and label them with "mental illness" accusations."

Russell Sanders then moves on to trying to cover for his buddies at Universal Studios and SyFy Channel by subscribing the notion "Random Chance" to some truly eccentric examples of their handling of the "Battlestar Galactica" property.

1. He tries to explain away the poor condition of how "Battlestar Galactica - The Complete Epic Series" DVD set (released in October 2003) was put out in the poorly manufactured manner in which it was (cracked discs, freezing discs, the damaged negative of "Saga of a Star World") as merely being the "manufacturer doing the best job it could do under the circumstances and resources available at the time." If this DVD set were put out by any other movie studio (Paramount, New Line Cinema, 20th Century Fox)...then maybe. However, when you combine the condition of this DVD set with Universal Studios long troubled history and mismanagement of the "Battlestar Galactica" property, it's indicative of a long pattern of this mismanagement. Also, Universal Studios did not order a "product recall" of "Battlestar Galactica - The Complete Epic Series" in October 2003, indicating their consent of the poor condition in which the DVD set was manufactured.

2. Bonnie Hammer wasn't part of any "anti-Galactica Conspiracy?" Really, Russell? What about the time she frequently pulled posts off of the old board criticizing her channel and Universal Studios, and used those posts as an excuse for not reviving the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series? What about the time she hired the stealth marketing firm "Abraham & Harrison" and instructed them to verbally attack the general public on the old board whenever they criticized Ronald D. Moore's sham take on "Battlestar Galactica" back in 2003? What about the time she lashed out against the fanbase of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series and stated "they can't drive the creative process?"

3. Russell Sanders states that "there has been nothing out of the ordinary going on at Universal Studios" in regards to how they have dealt with the "Battlestar Galactica" property. All along, according to Russell, "they have merely been trying to make money." From what I can gather, "making money" at Universal Studios involves these mandates (among many others:)

a. Announcing a "Galactica" movie in October 2011 and then suddenly cancelling it.
b. Announcing a "Galactica" movie in August 2009 and then cancelling it.
c. Releasing the intentionally defective DVD set "Battlestar Galactica - The Complete Epic Series" in
October 2003.
d.  Releasing intentionally defective VHS tapes of the 1978 series in the 1980s.

Nothing out of the ordinary going on, Russell? I'm reminded of the George Carlin joke:

"A man in Texas was arrested for shooting his family, next door neighbors, and his dog. When arguing with police, the man stated - 'I was merely cleaning my rifle when it suddenly went off.'"

Your logic in all of this Russell has been deranged and severely flawed because you can't attach "mental illness" accusations to those who merely point out the "overwhelmingly obvious" such as this. This isn't "mental illness", Russell. It's called "making a point." A damn good one at that. The point being, there have been matters and instances of unusual, consistent, and choreographed eccentricity going on at Universal Studios in how they have managed the "Battlestar Galactica" property for the past 33 years. Eccentricies at this late date continuing to stockpile. Such as, Universal Studios announcing a "Galactica" theatrical film in October 2011, and then suddenly abandoning the project for a "Munsters" television remake pilot.

For some reason Russell, you have always assumed that I would strive for and find some value in your acceptance and the acceptance of your buddies at Universal Studios. Why would I would strive for that, Russell? You're insane and so are your buddies at Universal Studios. I don't strive for the acceptance of crazy people.

Mass psychiatric therapy is available to you and your buddies at Universal Studios, Russ. I suggest you take it for your own well being.

On The Two Month Anniversary of Universal Studios And Bryan Singer Abandoning The "Battlestar Galactica" Movie They Announced...(So What Else Is New?)...

....What are they doing instead? No doubt casting their "Munsters" television pilot.

May I suggest Brad Garrett as Herman Munster?

Yes, the absurdity of Universal Studios and Bryan Singer's conduct in the profession they are supposed to be in continues to know no bounds.

The Physical World, And All of Its Physical Evidence, Continues to Be At War With Universal Studios And Russell Sanders

Russell Sanders and all of his buddies at Universal Studios do not live in the real physical world like the rest of us. They don't live in the real physical world in which we all live where all of the damning actual physical evidence against them continues to accumulate at a rapid clip in regards to how they continue to deliberately mismanage the "Battlestar Galactica" property.

Russell Sanders and all of his buddies at Universal Studios live in "cyber-space", where the lot of them have pardoned themselves of any wrongdoing while committing the following:

1. Rapidly abandoning the "Battlestar Galactica" movie announced in October 2011 that Bryan Singer was supposed to direct.

2. Quietly abandoning the "Battlestar Galactica" movie announced in August 2009 that Bryan Singer was supposed to direct.

3. Deliberately releasing an intentionally damaged DVD set (in October 2003) of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series. Titled: "Battlestar Galactica - The Complete Epic Series."

4. Ramming into production Ronald D. Moore's "GINO" series which was, in actuality, a "Star Trek" sequel series. A sequel series to "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" and "Star Trek: The Next Generation."

5. Intentionally releasing poor quality VHS tapes of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series in the 1980s.

6. Intentionally taking all 17 episodes of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series and ripping them to pieces (and then crudely splicing them back together again) in the fall of 1980 in order to make a series of syndicated telemovies out of them.

7. Spending 33 years deliberately mismanaging the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series (Galactica property) in any other manner they could think of.

Russell Sanders and his buddies at Universal Studios won't talk about these matters they pardoned themselves from, especially on the Internet. What they like to do instead, is accuse anyone of being "mentally ill" for bringing up these actual physical occurrences, which actually physically occurred, in this physical world of ours. These actual physical occurrences they don't want to bring up themselves. Call it not wanting to revisit their own troubled history.

For these matters and many others, Russell Sanders and his buddies at Universal Studios have chosen not to physically exist in this physical world of ours, where their physical offenses against the "Battlestar Galactica" property have actually occurred. They prefer to exist in cyber-space. They prefer to re-write their own troubled history in cyber-space on the Colonial Fleets forum, and the Frakheads forum. Where they have done no wrong, where anyone is "mentally ill" (as far as they are concerned) for daring to bring up their troubled history and flaunt it in their faces, and it is perfectly normal and not worthy of mentioning (as far as they are concerned) that they keep announcing new "Galactica" theatrical films every two years with Bryan Singer slated to direct. Movies that never come to fruition. The "every two year movie announcement bit" they actually consider to be normal behavior. 

Russell Sanders and his buddies at Universal Studios aren't going to change their evil ways because the Internet isn't going away anytime soon. And as long as the Internet continues to exist, Russell Sanders and his buddies at Universal Studios will continue to pardon themselves.

Confirmed: Ronald D. Moore's Sham Take On "Battlestar Galactica" Was Nothing But a "Star Trek" Sequel Series

quote - The latest Battlestar Galactica was a descendant of Star Trek, particularly TNG and DS9. A lot of us ended up there. The knowledge that we gained from Star Trek went into Galactica. And it affected the stories as well, because the stories Ron wanted to tell on TNG, that he really couldn’t because people get along in Starfleet, he could tell on BSG. Ron wanted to have people at each other’s throats, and that’s what he did. But Star Trek and BSG, they’re very, very related. There’s almost a distinct lineage from the golden age of Star Trek television to Battlestar Galactica. - unquote

Ronald D. Moore's sham take on "Battlestar Galactica" was indeed a "sham take" all along. Moore's series shouldn't have been called "Battlestar Galactica", it should have been called "Star Trek Sequel Series #4."

Universal Studios / SyFy Channel didn't hire Ronald D. Moore to revive "Battlestar Galactica" in 2003. They didn't even hire Moore to revive "Battlestar Galactica" in a radical way. Universal Studios / SyFy Channel hired Ronald D. Moore to make them a "Star Trek Sequel Series." Consisting of ingredients he couldn't apply to "Star Trek - The Next Generation" and "Deep Space Nine" because of conflicting canon.

"Star Trek" was / is the only thing Ronald D. Moore knows how to do, and that is exactly what he did for Universal Studios / SyFy Channel.

As of December 2011..."Battlestar Galactica" still has not been revived.

Want a Good Laugh? Read Russell Sanders "Stealth Marketing Reviews" of These Books He Fears So Much

Russell Sanders "primal screams" underneath one of the door knockers of the Universal Studios "Black Tower." Where his precious "thug friends" work.

It's called "fight or flight." When a corporation and / or individuals are backed into a corner due to "damning" overwhelming evidence against them, and choose to "fight" because they can't "flight."

This guy has had serious mental health issues his entire life, in no small part due to the fact that he just couldn't accept the fact that he and his buddies at Universal Studios were caught doing things to the "Battlestar Galactica" copyright they feel they never should have been caught doing.

Russell Sanders "stealth marketing motivated" reviews of these books over the years have always had a "manic desperation" about them, as if it was / is a matter of life or death to him that his "stealth marketing motivated" reviews of these books clear his friends at Universal Studios of any wrong doing. And he will say anything in these "stealth marketing motivated" reviews of his to try and achieve this. Even sling around his archaic "mental illness" accusations.

What has been very clear over the years, is that Russell Sanders has been "obsessively preoccupied" with these books over the years, to the point of obsessively hunting down every incarnation of these books over the years, in order to leave his "stealth marketing stamp of insanity" in every bogus review he conjures up for these books. No manifestation of love and protectiveness for his friends at the "Universal Studios Black Tower" has been too great for Russell Sanders. Up to and including using himself as a "human shield" for his friends at the "Universal Studios Black Tower" via these psychotic book reviews of his.

In one of his insane reviews of one of these books, (one of the reviews he obviously wasn't thinking about while typing it in a state of "manic panic") he irrationally states that "there is no such thing as an eyewitness unless the eyewitness interviews the perpetrators first." Oh really? Where does that leave eyewitnesses of car crashes or innocent bystanders being pepper sprayed? According to Russell Sanders deranged logic, the eyewitness has to know (interview) the driver of the crashing car personally, or has to know (interview) the police officer doing the pepper spraying personally, before the eyewitness can be "officially declared"...."an eyewitness."

Of course, in all of Russell Sanders "stealth marketing reviews" of these books, he has never stated and addressed the blatant, overwhelming obvious of the wrongdoing committed by his friends at the "Universal Studios Black Tower."

1. They have been slamming the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series for the past 33 years.
2. They keep announcing new "Galactica" movies every two years yet never follow through.
3. They deliberately released a damaged "Galactica" DVD set in October 2003.
4. They deliberately released poor quality VHS tapes of the series in the 1980s.
5. They deliberately ripped apart the episodes for telemovie syndication in the early 1980s.
6. They deliberately ignored the revitalized syndication market in 1987 caused by the new "Star Trek."

Despite this and all other damning evidence against his friends at the "Universal Studios Black Tower", Russell Sanders still clings to his deranged psychoses that pointing out such "overwhelmingly obvious" matters is an indication of mental illness. I don't see the connection myself but Russell Sanders always has in his "deranged stealth marketing la-la land."

The matters stated above actually, physically happened in this world of ours, from 1979 to 2011. Yet Russell Sanders will label anyone with a "mental illness accusation" for pointing out that they did. This is denial on his part, this is a crude attempt at "sweeping under the rug" on his part. It's also getting quite "archaic" at this late date, isn't it? You would think by this late date Russell Sanders would have come up with a more imaginative excuse for trying to cover for his buddies at the "Universal Studios Black Tower."

The "mental illness" accusation never goes out of style with Russell Sanders because it remains in the "Universal Studios Stealth Marketing Playbook", and Russell Sanders still receives his marching orders from his buddies at the "Universal Studios Black Tower."

Side Note

Why is Russell Sanders worrying about how many books have been sold? Hmmmm?

I like how he tries to console himself...

"At the most, I think Lang has sold 20 copies. Coming out to be .03 cents an hour."

His naivete continues to know no bounds, as well as his obvious association with Universal Studios.

Why Does Russell Sanders Always Come Across As "Nathan Thurm" From "SNL" When Attempting to Defend Universal Studios Against Conspiracy Accusations?

Russell Sanders is this nervous guy from "Saturday Night Live", isn't he? He always comes across as being this way whenever he claims he is not a stealth marketer for Universal Studios, doesn't he?

Russell Sanders: (nervous while chain smoking) "There is no conspiracy going on against the '1978 Battlestar Galactica' series. There never was!! I'm not a stealth marketer working for Universal Studios!! Where's your proof??"

It isn't just Russell Sanders who comes across this way whenever he makes the mistake of opening his mouth while attempting to defend Universal Studios against conspiracy accusations. It's everyone else allied with him on the "Colonial Fleets" board as well.

All executives from the "Universal Studios Black Tower" no doubt.

Russell Sanders And His Mesmerized Flock of "Colonial Fleets" Lunatics Attempt to Credit Universal Studios Executives With Intellectualism

If there is a bright center to the universe, the "stealth marketing schlong" Universal Studios has had clamped up Russell Sanders rear end for the past decade is the point farthest from. In his usual dodgy and stereotypically "stealth marketing" style, Russell Sanders has attempted to credit Universal Studios executives with "worldly intellectualism" as the reason why they repeatedly (and ultimately) shy away from bringing the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series back to life.

So, Russell. Universal Studios executives have knowledge of "far right conservatism?" Really? That would imply "education" of some sort that Universal Studios executives enjoyed at some point in their lives. Universal Studios executives have knowledge of the "ancient astronaut theories" so popular in the 1970s and how they were a vital component of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series? That would imply these idiots are historians of the very series they have been slamming for the past 33 years. Let's not give credit where credit isn't due, Russell. I certainly have never credited you for being above being commited to your local "psycho ward." You then Russell, still attempt to slide into first base with a smirk on your face ala' George W. Bush by boldly declaring that these matters Universal Studios executives supposedly have "worldly knowledge" of, are formulated into excuses by them for not reviving the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series.

Universal Studios executives are not educated, they are not worldly, they have no knowledge of what is presently "hip" and what is not within the Hollywood community. The only things they are aware of and possess juvenile knowledge of is as follows:

Universal Studios executives: "We no like '1978 Battlestar Galactica' series. We do like messing with public every 2 years by announcing new 'Galactica' movies we will never make. We no like getting into it again with George Lucas by bringing back '1978 Battlestar Galactica' series."

I have to hand it to you, Russell. Your knack for continuing to lead your "flock of fellow lunatics" on the Colonial Fleets board (and everywhere else you happen to vagrant) into one "wild goose chase after another" while simultaneously (trying and failing) to cover for your buddies at Universal Studios continues to know no bounds.

Bryan Singer Is a Sitcom Director In a Movie Man's World

Maybe it's just as well that Bryan Singer is heading towards his destiny. As a re-boot director of old half hour sitcoms. Because "Superman Returns" proved that Bryan Singer had about 22 minutes of story stretched out into a 2.5 hours running time. Superman returned to Earth and Lex Luthor was really pissed off at him. Thus, Bryan Singer isn't up to the challenge of multi-million dollar movies where a story extends beyond the usual sitcom running time of 22 minutes.

I can just imagine with horror what a Bryan Singer directed "Battlestar Galactica" movie would be like if he and Universal Studios actually expressed some adult responsibility and followed through in making one. The "Cylons" attack the "Galactica" and the "Rag-Tag Fleet" (a two minute special effects sequence at the most) with a 2.5 hours running time of everyone talking about what just happened. Every character having less than a paragraph of dialogue, but when you string the dialogue together you should have enough dialogue to cover the entire movie.

Even if "The Munsters" is a flop for NBC-TV (and it will be), I suspect that NBC-TV will want to keep Bryan Singer around in order to re-boot other old sitcoms this idiotic corporation has an appetite for. Yes sir. Bryan Singer is now the "new flavor of the month" for Universal Studios / NBC-TV / SyFy Channel. One of those producers / directors who has been "below average moderately successful" in Hollywood for years but who, for some reason is suddenly regarded as "fabulously wonderful" by Universal Studios / NBC-TV / SyFy Channel and someone Universal Studios / NBC-TV / SyFy Channel wants to irrationally keep "in-house" as a "ready to go" producer / director for their latest asinine projects, such as "The Munsters." Someone had to pick up the "flaming torch" and carry on the tradition inaugurated and left behind by Ronald D. Moore and "by golly!!" Bryan Singer is it!!

Bryan Singer And Ronald D. Moore Are Career Killers of Actors


Bryan Singer and Ronald D. Moore haven't just killed their own careers due to their general all around lack of talent in producing and directing, and ultimately associating with Universal Studios / NBC-TV / SyFy Channel because of it. They also have had a knack for killing the careers of every actor who has ever starred in one of their productions.

Let's start with Bryan Singer, shall we?

Brandon Routh - Remember him? Bryan Singer's own "Man of Steel" in the 2006 flop "Superman Returns." The last I heard of him, he had starred in some direct to DVD release about a "Kolchak-esque" character in a supernatural story of some sort. His present acting career? D.O.A. unless he's doing theater. Of course, it didn't help Brandon Routh's future career prospects that in this movie he had less than a paragraph of dialogue, in a 2.5 hour movie!! Bryan Singer didn't catch that in the dailies (rushes) before "Superman Returns" moved into post production? He didn't even catch that during actual filming? "Hey script girl!! Let's improvise some additional dialogue here for "Supes!!"

Kate Bonsworth - Remember her? Bryan Singer's own "Lois Lane" in the 2006 flop "Superman Returns." Her present acting career? D.O.A. unless she's doing theater.

James Marsden - Remember him? I barely do.

Parker Posey - Remember her? I barely do.

Frank Langella - Remember him? I barely do.

Let's conclude with Ronald D. Moore shall we?

Edward James Olmos - Yes, he has killed his own career with "oodles of frowning" over the years, but the fact remains that playing Commander Adama in Ronald D. Moore's "GINO" hasn't helped him move on to bigger and better things either.

Katee Sackhoff - Last I heard, she was opening a "pizzeria" somewhere.

Tricia Helfer - Tricia, where are you?

Jamie Bamber - Ditto

Mary McDonnell - Ditto

If I were an actor looking for work, I would give it serious second thought about being cast in Bryan Singer's "Munster's" remake, or any future project any movie studio would be insane enough to let Ronald D. Moore do.

The New Partnership of NBC-TV And Bryan Singer Manages to Underwhelm, Bore, and Be Cast Aside As Not Worthy of Consideration

The circumstances leading up to Bryan Singer getting mixed up with NBC-TV and doing such an asinine project as a "Munsters" remake would make great fodder for the study of those who sink so low in Hollywood from where there is no return. It's a safe bet that there won't be any "snapping rubber band" effect in Bryan Singer's career after doing "The Munsters" for NBC-TV. I mean, it's a safe bet that he won't bounce back to doing movies with Tom Cruise after doing "The Munsters." The only career option left for Bryan Singer after doing such a tacky project will be to be Shadoe Stevens substitute announcer on "Craig Ferguson", or the substitute voice for "Geoff."

"The Munsters" remake on NBC-TV will be another one of those disposable projects thrown together by the network on the order of the "Bionic Woman" and "Knight Rider" remakes. A half dozen episodes at the most and cancelled after a thousand pre-emptions. The six episodes dumped on a single DVD along with a DVD box set re-release of the actual "Munsters" series from 1966.

I wonder if Universal Studios / NBC-TV realize how often they waste their time with stupid ass projects such as this. Projects so asinine, idiotic, and unnecessary; that it is inevitable that the majority of the viewing public always end up paying such projects no mind.

The Bryan Singer - NBC-TV partnership is gearing up to be as underwhelming and boring as the Ronald D. Moore - SyFy Channel partnership. The end result being appointment television not in the making, to be avoided at all costs.

"Battlestar Galactica" Has The Worst Copyright Owners In History

Universal Studios executives and Glen A. Larson are also the worst business people who have ever lived.

Whether we're talking about their utter cluelessness in how to bring the property back, or how they blindly surrendered the property to Ronald D. Moore in the 2000s, or how they repeatedly announce new movies in press releases before all of the legalities are worked out among all parties, Universal Studios and Glen A. Larson have taken the urban term "Cluster F**k", and have made it all their own. Routinely and daily "Cluster F**king" in business, should  be patented by both Universal Studios and Glen A. Larson.

Years and decades continue to pass with new "Battlestar Galactica" movies being announced, and Universal Studios & Glen A. Larson remain immobile statues with their thumbs permanently lodged up each other's asses.

Universal Studios and Glen A. Larson also have a remarkably destructive habit of never bringing in fresh faces and fresh ideas to possibly tackle a new "Battlestar Galactica" movie. They always rely on the "tried & true" failures of the movie and television industries: Bryan Singer and Ronald D. Moore.

Bryan Singer and Ronald D. Moore are absolute geniuses at either repeatedly getting nothing done with the "Battlestar Galactica" property, or f***ing up the property so bad with such nonsense as "GINO", "Caprica", and "Blood & Chrome", it's amazing that both of them manage to ever find periodic, scarce employment anywhere.

Isn't it basic business common sense to wait until all of the legalities are worked out ahead of time, and wait until the entire filmmaking apparatus is booked well in advance, before you start making announcements in press releases of a "Battlestar Galactica" movie being in production? No such common sense exists with Universal Studios and Glen A. Larson. They repeatedly and prematurely make announcements of a "Battlestar Galactica" movie being in production before any guarantee even exists of anything being firmly in place well in advance. This in itself permanently defines Universal Studios executives and Glen A. Larson as the "worst business people who have ever lived."

Bryan Singer has learned quite well by them and Ronald D. Moore is a catastrophe unto himself. It will be interesting to observe how this "Circus Freak Show" continues to degenerate with the lot of them continuing to be at the helm.

Bryan Singer Has An Odd Style of Working, And it is Cause For Alarm

Attention Deficit Disorder is a syndrome encompassing a wide variety of symptoms. One symptom in particular perfectly illustrates how Bryan Singer works as a film director:

-Having difficulty maintaining focus on one task

Now, Bryan Singer announced his plans to direct a "Battlestar Galactica" movie on October 17th, 2011. After that announcement, Singer began to literally stockpile additional projects on his plate diverting his attention away from "Battlestar Galactica."

If this is part of the typical Universal Studios "Master Plan" to endlessly announce "Battlestar Galactica" movies and then never follow through with them, then so be it. However, if it is an indication of something that Bryan Singer may be suffering from, then he and his family have alot to worry about.

Bryan Singer has announced or has become involved with a shitload of projects since his October 17th, 2011 announcement of "exclusively devoting his attention to a Battlestar Galactica movie after Excalibur died." These various projects including:

1. X-Men 4
2. X-Men 5
3. Six Billion Dollar Man
4. The Munsters
5. A web series of some sort

Bryan Singer is not "exclusively devoting his attention to Battlestar Galactica" as he said he was going to do with a full plate like that.

Now, Bryan Singer has a production company of some sort called "Mad Hatter Productions" or something along those lines. Now, is this an actual physical production company along the lines of what Stephen J. Cannell had ("A-Team, Rockford Files, Riptide, Greatest American Hero, Renegade"), or is it just a production company in name only inside of Bryan Singer's head? The reason why I ask is that the only way Bryan Singer could tackle that many projects at one time would be to have an actual physical production company with hundreds of producers, directors, and "Teamsters" working for him to make these simultaneous projects of Bryan Singer come to life.

There is no way all of these projects are going to simultaneously come to life if Bryan Singer doesn't have an actual physical production company. To my knowledge he doesn't have one, because he hasn't been successful enough as a film director to have one.

Which brings us right back to the possibility of "Attention Deficit Disorder."

Bryan Singer throws a bunch of simultaneous projects into a "lottery drum" and spins the "lottery drum" around endlessly. Where the "lottery drum" stops no one knows. If it stops favoring a "Battlestar Galactica" movie, then that will be the focus of Bryan Singer's attention...for 30 seconds. Then he will spin the "lottery drum" again, and it might stop favoring "The Munsters" remake.

Was it "Attention Deficit Disorder" that caused Bryan Singer to immediately focus his attention elsewhere after announcing a "Battlestar Galactica" movie on October 17th, 2011? Was it "Attention Deficit Disorder" that caused Bryan Singer to promise that "Battlestar Galactica" would be the focal point of his attention on October 17th, 2011...only to have him abandon his promise a short time later?

He can't possibly do all of the projects he announced because we all know that he doesn't have an actual "physical production company" as Stephen J. Cannell did. Which means Bryan Singer is going to have to pick and choose out of all of the projects he has announced.

Of course "Battlestar Galactica" will get kicked to the curb. That's just a "given" and it's in Bryan Singer's "psychological DNA" to do so. Both "X-Men" movies will probably get kicked to the curb also.

I predict that "Bryan Singer's main priority from here on in will be "The Munsters" remake. From there, he will go immediately into "The Six Billion Dollar Man" with Leonardo DiCaprio.

As a sidenote, I think that Bryan Singer's remake of "The Munsters" will totally suck ass and fall by the wayside just as all of the other NBC-TV fantasy remakes did:

1. Bionic Woman
2. Knight Rider

"The Munsters" as flesh-eaters?? Yes, that will go over quite well with mass market audiences who affectionately remember the classic comedy series with Fred Gwynne and Yvonne DeCarlo.

If NBC-TV and Bryan Singer are trying to compete with AMC Television's "The Walking Dead", they just title their stupid-ass series...

"We're Trying to Compete With AMC Television's 'The Walking Dead"
