By Golly, The 35th Anniversary of "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" Series is Here!! So, How is Universal Studios Going to Screw it Up For Everybody Else?
This will most definitely be the one year out of all previous years when we we will see Universal Studios screw up (in every conceivable way) the fond memories of "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series.
What I predict will be the highlights....
1. Universal Studios executives simply getting up in the morning, having breakfast, and then showing up for work at the "Universal Studios Black Tower." "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series is already in deep trouble right there!! Only 358 more days to go in this anniversary year!! Boy, it's going to be a long haul!!
2. This would be the perfect year for Universal Studios to release a corrected version of "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica Complete Series" on DVD!! You know the DVD set, right? The DVD set Universal Studios screwed up three times in a row thus far in 2003, 2004, and 2008 (i.e. Cracked discs, freezing discs, heavy grain in episodes.) Of course, Universal Studios would never do this because they simply don't like the show!!
3. Whatever happened to that "Battlestar Galactica 1978" movie that Universal Studios and Bryan Singer announced in 2001, 2009, and 2011? We won't find out in 2013 either!!
4. Will we ever see the supposed "1978 Battlestar Galactica Ralph McQuarrie Portfolio" in 2013? Not if Universal Studios has anything to say about it!! And gosh golly, they will have something to say about it!! Universal Studios continues to be up to its corporate neck in trying to keep this show off of everyone's radar and 2013 will be no different!!
5. How about a "Director's Cut" of "Saga of a Star World" (the pilot episode of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series) with the editing supervised by "Saga" directors Richard A. Colla and Alan J. Levi? It would be the perfect product to hit store shelves for the 35th Anniversary of "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series!! Right? Wrong!! Not if Universal Studios has anything to say about it! And gosh golly, they will have something to say about it!!
That's just a few of my predictions for the "lumps of coal" Universal Studios no doubt has in store for the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series in this 35th Anniversary year of its existence!!
And have faith!! Universal Studios will no doubt sink to depths even worse than what's listed above in 2013!!
