Ted McGinley is a fine actor. Just fine. In his earlier years however, he had the knack and the misfortune of being cast (late in the game) in television shows that were on the brink of death and headed straight for cancellation in their later seasons: "Happy Days", "Love Boat", and "Dynasty."
Ronald D. Moore is in that Ted McGinley vein, but with Ronald D. Moore...he is always the cause of a "Science Fiction" television series early demise due to his poor producing and writing, as opposed to Ted McGinley who merely suffered from "being in the wrong place at the wrong time" with the television series he was cast in.
In two instances, "Science Fiction" projects for television he was responsible for producing and writing never got past the pilot phase:
1. "17th Precinct"
In yet another instance, a pilot episode he was involved with never got filmed!!
3. "Wild, Wild West"
"GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) was on the air for four low rated seasons not because it was any good, but because intense politics rooted in an intense hatred of "The 1978 Battlestar Galactica" series kept "GINO" on the air - low ratings be damned!! There would have been a quick demise for "GINO" had there been no politics involved at NBC-Universal / SyFy Channel.
"Caprica" and "Blood & Chrome" also suffered quick demises. The politics exhausted at that point.
Lately, Ronald D. Moore has been involved with "Helix", a low rated series on the SyFy Channel also headed for an early demise.
Not only is Ronald D. Moore a "Bad Luck Charm" for all things "Televised Science Fiction", he is also the "Reverse Ted McGinley of Televised Science Fiction." And the reason why all of this is so, is because Ronald D. Moore lacks the producing and writing abilities to grab, charm, and hang on to....a mass market television audience. He has never been able to do this.
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.
