Reading this article, you get the impression that promoting Ronald D. Moore's "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) series wasn't the only item on the agenda of this stealth marketing campaign. It's a safe bet that Universal Studios also wanted the memory of "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series buried for good. The whole theme of this article is...."The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series is long gone, so let's hurry up and move on so that we (Universal Studios) won't have to deal with it anymore. We gave you your 'Cylon Head Boxed Set' (as flawed as it was)...so what more do you people want?"
Universal Studios was a very naïve corporation in the 2000s. Not that they have improved much in the present day. But back then, they thought the Internet was more magical than it really was. They thought that "Mass Hypnosis" could occur via this "Abraham & Harrison Stealth Marketing Campaign"....causing a global chain reaction which would have caused the entire planet to forget about "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series. A lot of this had to do with their arrogance as a corporation...combined with their "Street Smarts Deficiency." They held themselves in very high regard back then...combined with their animostic hatred of "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series. They honestly thought that the "Magical Internet" back then would do their "Dirty Little Deed" for them, and wipe all of the global memories clean of "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series. Yes, the Internet of the 2000s was the "Master Control Panel" of Universal Studios where they could beam their thought waves all over the world forcing the global population to forget about "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series. It's a shame for them that it didn't work, isn't it?
Well, it's a decade later and "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series is still with us while Ronald D. Moore's "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) series is long gone. Collecting dust in http://www.Amazon.com warehouses across the country and all over the world because it has ultimately turned out to be as much of a "Nameless / Faceless" production (long forgotten) as any other piece of garbage produced by Bonnie Hammer's SyFy Channel.
"GINO" is long forgotten because it was nothing more than a "B-Grade Soap Opera" that Ronald D. Moore made up as he went along....trying to attach itself to the much much better conceived "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series.
When will this studio ever learn that (something not even in the vicinity of the broad side of a barn) is not "Battlestar Galactica" just because they claim it is? Even when unsuccessful attempts at "Mass Hypnosis" are involved.
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.
