I Wonder How Universal Studios Will Screw Up This Science Fiction Project

NBC-Universal has completely wrecked and junked the once great "Sci-Fi Channel" of the 1990s. They completely wrecked and junked the "Battlestar Galactica" property in every conceivable way.

Now, they want to move on and make a Science Fiction movie of some sort based upon some obscure comic book from the late 1980s.

I have always found it interesting that Universal Studios has practiced the following deranged logic among many, many other examples:

1. They actually stated at one point in the early 2000s that one of the reasons why they didn't want to make a movie based upon the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series is because they felt no one would remember the series.

2. Yet they went ahead and made a big budget remake of the Saturday morning kids show "Land of the Lost" starring Will Ferrell (a remake of a Saturday morning kids show from the year 1974) which aired four years earlier than the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series (a kids show infinitely more obscure and infinitely lesser known than the "1978 Battlestar Galactica series.)

3. This new movie starring Charlize Theron (based upon an obscure comic book from the late 1980s that 99% of the global population hasn't even heard of) will most likely get made long before any theatrical film based upon the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series will - an infinitely better known property than this new movie with Charlize Theron.

4. Universal Studios also did a live action remake of "Josie & The Pussycats", another infinitely lesser known property than the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series.

Do you see the pattern in Universal Studios behavior? I know I do.
