Looky here!! Is this an episode of...."Miami Vice?"....."Hunter?"...."C.S.I.?"....."Days Of Our Lives?"..."Kojak"....even? Nope!! It's Ronald D. Moore's...."GINO" - (Galactica In Name Only)....series!! The series with the ever expanding...."anthology-esque"...."John Doe"....identity and format issues as it went on using the...."Battlestar Galactica"....title only. One week gangster episode. Next week soap opera episode. Next week infanticide. Next Week rape. Every episode of this...."anthology-esque"....series with format and identity issues always set right here on Earth with contemporary wardrobe and every day items on full display for the discerning viewer!!
I'll go a bit further with the wretched...."Black Market".....episode from Ronald D. Moore's wretched..."GINO" - (Galactica In Name Only)... series. With this series already having lost all credibility as a supposed link to the...."1978 Battlestar Galactica Series".....(The only true and successful "Battlestar Galactica" production thus far)....
...."Black Market"....was the first episode that truly revealed the astonishing laziness of Ronald D. Moore and the production crew that worked on this series. A series that was supposed to be taking place thousands of light years from Earth and supposedly never heard of Earth actually broadcast an episode...."Black Market"....involving gangsters....thugs in business suits....whores in nighties.....etc....set right here (obviously) on Earth.
This was the episode that...."Jumped The Shark".....in terms of validating the fact that this series had no clue what it was in terms of premise. Apt since its broadcast network...."SyFy"....never had any clue what it's identity was either.
Ronald D. Moore and David Eick went into this abomination of a series with mere lip service claiming that it was...."Battlestar Galactica".....reimagined. As time unfortunately went on for this series that should have cancelled at...."Day One"....It gradually mutated (through the utter intellectual and conceptual laziness of Ronald D. Moore and his production crew) into a present day (set on Earth) hodgepodge of gangster melodrama....soap opera....love crap....violent / rape....claptrap....with contemporary settings and wardrobe clearly set right here on Earth.
Anyone watching this series at the time (all 300 of its total viewers worldwide) were utterly convinced that they were not watching...."Battlestar Galactica".....supposedly set in outer space thousands of light years from instead...but instead....were watching the most astonishing example of production laziness ever seen in a television series....Gangsters....Whores.....Rape Victims....Infanticide....set in contemporary...."Elliot Ness".....territory....with an ever rotating menu of claptrap set here....on present day Earth complete with apartment buildings, automobiles, eyeglasses, nighties....etc. Using the...."Battlestar Galactica"....title only. If this thorough mess of a series at the conceptual stage had called itself...."The Price Is Right"....instead.....It wouldn't have been any less ludicrous.
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.
