SyFy Channel Reunites With Ronald D. Moore For...More Failure


What have the SyFy Channel and Ronald D. Moore accomplished together? Let's see now.
1. They trashed the "Battlestar Galactica" property with three sub-standard renditions (GINO, Caprica, Blood & Chrome.)
2. They have pretty much destroyed any desire on the part of anyone else to try space-based science fiction on television because they did such a crappy job at producing and writing "GINO", "Caprica", Blood & Chrome."
3. They destroyed their own careers and reputations with "GINO", "Caprica", and "Blood & Chrome." Are they terribly successful right now as a result of those three series? I rest my case.
4. They set back the likelihood of any chance of seeing good, space based science fiction on television a good 50 years.
In the end, all that the SyFy Channel and Ronald D. Moore had were each other, and nobody else.
1. Ronald D. Moore has been working for Sony for about three years, yet NBC-TV and SyFy Channel have been his only interested, and paying customers in Hollywood (Precinct 17, Helix). In other words, no one else in the movie and television industry has been the slightest bit interested in contacting Ronald D. Moore at Sony for any project except his old buddies at his old stomping grounds (NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel.)
2. This brings up another point. Why is NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel always insistent on continuing to associate with those who never delivered to them terribly successful products in the first place? - (Ronald D. Moore, Bryan Singer)
3. You would think by now, NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel would have learned the lesson to begin bringing in other, more talented and qualified people to make projects for them...
NBC-U / SyFy: "Hey!! Why don't we ask Brannon Braga to develop a project for us? Or Joss Whedon? Or James Cameron? Or Rick Berman?"
Why does NBC-U / SyFy Channel always continue to roll out their old, tried and true "Masters of Failure" (Ronald D. Moore, Bryan Singer) to develop projects with?
Anyone else in the business world (Hollywood included) would say...
"Ummm...It's time to bring in new people. This is getting ridiculous."
There is only so long that NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel can keep clinging to the brief and past marginal successes of Ronald D. Moore (Star Trek staff writer), and Bryan Singer (X-Men 1 & 2)...(both marginal successes over a decade old) as excuses to keep rehiring them or keeping them in mind for new projects. Sooner or later NBC-Universal is going to have get serious about Science Fiction and Fantasy if they want to begin making serious money from both. It isn't going to happen with Ronald D. Moore and Bryan Singer. Any level-headed hiring manager (blue collar or white collar) knows that.
