Ronald D. Moore Really Didn't Open Up About "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) Because Two Very Important Facts Were "Ever So Conveniently" Left Out
Fact #1: "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) was cancelled at the end of its fourth season due to low ratings.
Fact #2: "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) was not "One of the most popular Science Fiction programs of all time." It crawled along on the SyFy Channel's schedule due to low ratings during its entire four season run. Routinely getting beaten by reruns of "SpongeBob." Let's also not forget that each of the four, low rated seasons of "GINO" were broken up with a long (and I mean long!!) hiatus between season renewals. As if SyFy Channel were saying...."Should we renew this low rated thing or shouldn't we?" Wouldn't a ratings hit have been renewed a lot more quickly between seasons?
"GINO" was a flop, plain and simple. Certainly from the business side of things. As for this nonsense about "GINO"...being...."One of the most popular Science Fiction programs of all time"......as I have said many times before...."The Stealth Marketing Machine" for this long cancelled flop never turns off!! It's still active four years after its cancellation!!
What I'm waiting for is someone REALLY opening up about this show!!
1. Yes, "GINO" was a low rated flop!!
2. Yes, it should have been cancelled long before its first season completed due to low ratings.
3. Yes, its mini series / pilot had the lowest audience test scores in history.
4. Yes, it really wasn't "Battlestar Galactica" but was instead...the eighth season of "Star Trek: Voyager"....dark and dirtied down.
Were the SyFy Channel and Ronald D. Moore really naïve enough to believe that simply calling something "Battlestar Galactica" made it so?
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.
