The cast members of "GINO", in a state of denial as to how low their ratings were on the SyFy Channel (Reruns of "SpongeBob" frequently kicked their butts in the ratings) try to project the illusion that they weren't tossed into the "Trash Heap" by mass market television audiences. This particular issue of TV Guide of course, went largely unnoticed by those who even bought TV Guide regularly. Nobody knew who these people were on the cover of this particular issue because NO ONE was watching this television series. Thus, this particular issue sold a great deal less than usual.
When you produce and write a Science Fiction television series in a "Half-Ass" and "Slip-Shod" manner (No costume designer for this show!!) while at the same time not giving a damn about your source material ("The 1978 Battlestar Galactica Series")....You're going to get out of life precisely what you put into it. 6 episodes later, this "Embarrassment" on all fronts called "Caprica" was gone. The "Creepy" and "Weird" thing is....Bonnie Hammer...David Howe...and Mark Stern actually thought that television audiences would buy into "Elliot Ness & The Untouchables Dressed in Business Suits Set on an Alien Planet Looking Like Downtown L.A. During Rush Hour." It just goes to show that because Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern are "Bean Counters & Marketers" in actuality, they need to be kept out of the creative process at all costs. The three of them are not "Artsy" people. "Caprica" in particular proved that.
The SyFy Channel never admits mistakes and "course corrects" as a result. The SyFy Channel just puts fresh coats of paint on crappy ideas. If the SyFy Channel were run by intelligent people, the lesson that would have been learned would have been that Ronald D. Moore's crappy rendition of "Battlestar Galactica" was a "Colossal Mistake" on every "Mass Market Front." Because the SyFy Channel is run by stupid people, they just added more "Space Battles" to Ronald D. Moore's initial "Crappy Idea." ....."Blood & Chrome" was about a younger version of a character played by Edward James Olmos that no one in "Mass Market Television Land" gave two shits about because Edward James Olmos played the older version in such a repulsive and disgusting manner.
Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on Amazon.com...
And read these books at another location where Universal Studios executives and its stealth marketers won't be able to post negative, misleading (stealth marketed) reviews of the books via them purchasing candy and Rogaine Foam on Amazon.com (allowing them access to the Amazon book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books. I'll leave the other 150 global locations under wraps for now.
