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 http://www.amazon.com. 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 http://www.amazon.com 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 http://www.scifi.com/galactica) 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 http://www.amazon.com?
I guess not.
