Has Anyone Noticed That Universal Studios Repeatedly Turns Science Fiction And "Battlestar Galactica" into Mass Market, Commercial Failures?
I think it has alot to do with all of the little, insignificant people at Universal Studios who lack the creative talent and the mass market commercial instincts to turn anything they touch into a unanimous held opinion among the commercial masses, that they have achieved mass market, commercial success with Science Fiction overall and "Battlestar Galactica."
What always happens with Universal Studios / SyFy Channel instead...is everytime they touch anything Science Fiction related and "Battlestar Galactica" specifically (and routinely screwing it up)...they end up having to rehire their stealth marketing buddies at "Abraham & Harrison" (all 12 of them) in order to try and mop up the public relations mess they inadvertently created by trying to do anything with Science Fiction in general and "Battlestar Galactica." Because Universal Studios / SyFy Channel always ends up pissing off so many people. "Abraham & Harrison" will always be doomed to roam the Internet trying to pick fights with the general public (on Universal Studios behalf)...on Internet bulletin boards with anyone who expresses an honest critical opinion of Universal Studios for (once again) screwing up Science Fiction in general, and "Battlestar Galactica."
It wouldn't be hard to turn anything Science Fiction related and "Battlestar Galactica" specifically into mass market / commercial successes if the talent was simply there at Universal Studios to do so. It isn't and never has been, so Universal Studios continues to lack any sort of mass market / commercial success Science Fiction tent pole property, and what Universal Studios continues to have the unmitigated gall to call "Battlestar Galactica" was a freebie view on http://www.youtube.com just last month, and is now poised to become a low selling DVD release after being a freebie view on SyFy Channel next month. Of course I'm speaking of that "Turd-Trek" known as "Blood & Chrome." Universal Studios has absolutely no idea what do with this "Blood & Chrome" turd thingy of theirs to such a degree, they can't even figure out if they should offer it free of charge to the general public on http://www.youtube.com, free of charge on the SyFy Channel, or as a DVD retail release. So Universal Studios is trying all three consecutively hoping that jello will stick to the wall with a hammer and nails at some point for them.
The sensible option will always be there for Universal Studios / SyFy Channel to go out of the Science Fiction business and the "Battlestar Galactica" business entirely, and sell everything they have Science Fiction related including "Battlestar Galactica" to a more sensible corporation in Hollywood.
