Not Much Demand For these Guys at Science Fiction Conventions, is There?

Is this one of the cast members from a current legal drama on television? Nope!! It's one of the cast members from "Caprica." His shirt and tie threw me off for a minute. No science fiction convention in the world is asking for this guy to make an appearance. Perhaps partially due to the fact that no one knows who the hell he is.


This guy has frowning down to a fine art. Just the sort of character a mass market science fiction audience would take to its collective heart. A manic depressive lead character. Edward James Olmos' chronic frowning for four seasons did nothing to erase the memory of the late great Lorne Greene as the only true Commander Adama. And Edward James Olmos also did not replace Lorne Greene as Commander Adama in any way.


It's safe to say that we won't be seeing this guy at science fiction conventions either. "Blood & Chrome" failed to touch a mass market science fiction audience just like the other two productions above, was just a job to him and has moved on just as it was with the cast members of "Ice Spiders", "Frankenfish", "Gatorade", and "Area 51."

NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel's continued flair for making "Battlestar Galactica" as unattractive as possible to mass market science fiction audiences will always know no bounds. But their "Battlestar Galactica" stamped productions will always end up right in here....and not adored at science fiction conventions...

NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel's "chronic problem" with "Battlestar Galactica" always is, they only see it as a corporate instrument to be used for satisfying internal, sinister corporate agendas. Mass market entertainment attractiveness on a global scale is always out of the question for them with "Battlestar Galactica."
The hard knocks result for NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel? No one wants to remember these productions at science fiction conventions.
Perhaps these three shows ("GINO", "Caprica", "Blood & Chrome") weren't designed to have any staying power beyond their first broadcasts?
