Revisiting One of The Many Mass Market / Commercial Failures of Ronald D. Moore and The SyFy Channel

There is that damn low budget wardrobe of the SyFy Channel again. Taking place on an alien planet, my ass. How about taking place in a legal firm in downtown Los Angeles? This wardrobe of course is thoroughly interchangeable with every other production on the SyFy Channel, like pieces of "Colorforms" and "Mr. Potato Head."

You can't do Science Fiction "Half-Ass" the way Ronald D. Moore and SyFy Channel always do it and expect something contrary to the typical results of anything done "Half-Ass."

You also can't do Science Fiction properly if you are as lazy as Ronald D. Moore and SyFy Channel always are. You need a large budget (not what the SyFy Channel considers large, but a mammoth, large budget way beyond the SyFy Channel's means) in order to do Science Fiction properly. Exotic cities need to be designed and built. Cities no one has ever seen before. Fantastic props and gadgets need to be designed and built no one has ever seen before. Most importantly, if your Science Fiction television series takes place on an alien planet thousands of light years from Earth, don't dress your damn cast members in contemporary business suits and other articles of every day clothing. Hire a damn costume designer instead to design an imaginative wardrobe for your
cast. SyFy Channel and Ronald D. Moore tried to have their cake and eat it also by not only not designing a futuristic wardrobe for the "Caprica" cast, but also trying to conjure up a lame ass excuse as to why people on this alien world would be dressed just like Earth people...

"Everything that happened before will happen again."

Oh, B.S.!! How about...."Ronald D. Moore and SyFy Channel were just too damn lazy (and probably lacked the budget) to hire an appropriate wardrobe designer for 'Caprica', as well as for 'GINO' - (Galactica in Name Only) and 'Blood & Chrome." Ironically, the cast members in "Caprica" and the other two productions looked absolutely ridiculous dressed in everyday clothing because they weren't supposed to be dressed in that manner due to what the premise was supposed to be in these productions. They were expected to be dressed in futuristic garb no one had ever seen before. That's just "Conventional Wisdom 101" when doing a Science Fiction television series. Of course, what Ronald D. Moore and the SyFy Channel lack. They may have thought it was a bold new experiment in Science Fiction television but it came across as just looking stupid as hell instead.

"Caprica" and the other two productions (if they haven't been already) will be notoriously etched in the collective bad memory as being the laziest Science Fiction television productions in history. "Half-Ass" in conception and execution.


Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on

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 (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.
