I wouldn't expect it to be any other way since Universal Studios has been announcing (and not making) a "Battlestar Galactica" movie since 2001.
I've said it before and I'll say it again...
Universal Studios and Science Fiction / Fantasy do not mix. When they do try it...they fail at it...("R.I.P.D., "Cowboys & Aliens".)...And when they do fail at it, they always blame the genre...never themselves....always resulting in a decrease from these types of movies from them when it's not the fault of the genre.
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.
