Why Is It...Whenever The SyFy Channel and Ronald D. Moore Are Involved In a Project Together, You Gradually Discover "Sinister Things" Going On With The Project?
1. Now, Ronald D. Moore didn't create this thing. The creator of "Helix" is Cameron Porsandeh. Yet, for some reason in the marketing of this thing, SyFy Channel wants everyone to believe that "Helix" has been...."brought to you by....Ronald D. Moore." To me...whenever the phrase..."brought to you by"...is used, that means the creator of the show is...."bringing it to you." It should be a surprise to anyone that after the premature cancellations of "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only), "Caprica", and "Blood & Chrome"....that Ronald D. Moore's birth name has somehow (miraculously) become a "brand name" for attaching a new show to for marketing purposes......Selling new SyFy Channel productions to a skeptical public. He didn't even create the thing! And his name isn't that big within the vast majority of the population.
2. So, it is Cameron Porsandeh who can be blamed for ripping off "John Carptenter's - The Thing" movie from 1982. Despite this, we find the SyFy Channel and Ronald D. Moore still neck deep in something (involved together) in swiping source material from an earlier blatant source ("John Carpenter's - The Thing.") Shades of "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only), "Caprica", and "Blood & Chrome."
The roosters always come back to the "hen house", don't they?
3. Why is it, it's only when the SyFy Channel and Ronald D. Moore work together we find this "Shades of Grey" type stuff always going on? When the SyFy Channel works with other people on other projects, such as the creators and producers of "Defiance" this type of stuff never happens. It's just a straight forward no-nonsense production (even if I don't like it) devoid of the...("Well, he actually created this, and that was swiped from an earlier television / movie production, and he over there is actually the creator" sort of nonsense.) It's only when the SyFy Channel and Ronald D. Moore work together on a project that every rug has to be looked under, every dark corner needs a bright flashlight, every banana has to be unpeeled and diced up for secrets. Why is this? Why is it always this way with these two?
Everyone involved in this production brought it on themselves that there would be obvious comparisons made to "John Carpenter's Thing" movie from 1982. "Helix" did not have to be set at an arctic research facility like John Carpenter's movie was. Why not have this research facility located underneath "Union Station" in New York, or in the jungle? On top of "Helix" being set at an arctic facility, "Helix" also has graphic, gory, bloody, slimy, gooey things happening to the human body just like in John Carpenter's movie. And just like in John Carpenter's movie, it is a "Science Fictiony" source of evil driving the narrative. Did anyone involved in this production even try to come up with an original idea? Why not bring John Carpenter on board and just do a televised version / continuation of his movie from 1982? The end result would have been identical either way. If you're merely "slightly rewriting" a movie from 31 years ago, you might as well just do a televised version / continuation of it instead.
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.
