What's That? Someone Made The Incredibly Astute Observation That Ronald D. Moore "Wasn't The Right Fit" For a Particular Project He Was Working On?

"Four standard featurettes are offered: "Ronald D. Moore: The Outlier of Science Fiction" (7:13), "The Future of Disease" (5:28), "The Art of Isolation" (5:52), and "Dissecting the Characters" (10:32). These are supported by two featurettes exclusive to the Blu-Ray edition: "Writing the Tension" (5:42), "Fabricating the Plague" (6:25). Look, I'm sorry if you're a "Battlestar Galactica" fan (and I'm not knocking that show, as I haven't seen it), but there's a strong sense from basically every one of these featurettes that everything wrong with "Helix" stems from Moore, who may just not have been the right fit for this material, despite being Porsandeh's "pipe dream" collaborator (it suggests Moore is responsible for the deliberate release of information and the grounding of the show's crazy ideas. This is only highlighted by the "Future of Disease" featurette, in which Porsandeh briefly talks about the inspiration for the show, which is far more fascinating than anything that actually occurs in "Helix." The most interesting of these is probably the second exclusive featurette, which covers the make-up design, but these are pretty surface-level, packed with clips and interviews from the set."

Other projects Ronald D. Moore wasn't the right fit for....

1. Star Trek: Generations (Killing Captain Kirk in a lame ass scaffolding collapse?)

2. "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) - Its schizophrenic and meandering format anything and everything except Battlestar Galactica.

3. Caprica - Ditto

4. Precinct 17 - Thank God this one was torpedoed before it ever aired. If it hadn't have been, it would have been nothing more than a "GINO" - (Galactica in Name Only) cast reunion nightmare.

In the future, are there ways Ronald D. Moore could be screened for each potential project he may be working on just to see if he would be "the right fit" for a particular project? Just to be on the safe side.


Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on

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 (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.
