Let's Examine The Truly Exciting Deviations In Universal Studios Behavior Over The Years When It Comes To The "1978 Battlestar Galactica Series"



http://www.cvillenewsonline.com/221272/universal-settles-profit-dispute-over-knight-rider-battlestar-galactica/

1. A settlement is reached between Universal Studios and the late Glen A. Larson's heirs. - Universal Studios management of this property remains shitty and does nothing constructive with the property.

2. A settlement isn't yet reached between Universal Studios and the late Glen A. Larson's heirs. - Universal Studios management of this property remains shitty and does nothing constructive with the property.

3. Nobody knows who actually owns the..."1978 Battlestar Galactica".....series. Universal Studios management of this property remains shitty and does nothing constructive with the property. 

4. Somebody may know who actually owns the...."1978 Battlestar Galactica"....property. Universal Studios management of this property remains shitty and does nothing constructive with the property.

Yes, that pretty much sums up the past 38 consecutive years, of Universal Studios..."Nightmare Ownership"....of this property, doesn't it?

This Is a Blatant Example Of The SyFy Channel's Lazy Programming Habits This Blog Has Always Talked About


http://www.syfy.com

Lazy programming habits of the SyFy Channel....

1. Easy and obvious access to the...."Universal Studios Film Vaults"...
2. ...With a wide selection of films that are not Science Fiction in nature....
3. ...With a wide selection of films that are also box office flops....

4.....With a wide selection of films because they are non-Science Fiction in nature...always undoes the SyFy Channel's apparent current progress in original Science Fiction television programming.

Additionally, because of the SyFy Channel's current affliction with being unable to decipher between a box office flop and a box office success...AGAIN....and AGAIN....and AGAIN....and AGAIN....

...Its miniscule viewership all day long will make the journey all day long from watching (1) The only successful..."Jaws"....movie in 1975 directed by Steven Spielberg....to (2) The...first...."Jaws"...sequel (the first "Jaws" flop) in 1979...to the second "Jaws" sequel flop in 1983 (in 3-D!!)...to the third...."Jaws"....sequel flop in 1987. Of course, with each movie including the only good one directed by Steven Spielberg hacked up for commercial breaks.

The ever reliable....Garbage Dump....for all of the box office flops of Universal Studios.... (the SyFy Channel)...The channel's real purpose in life....remains firmly in place!!

Does it ever occur to the SyFy Channel's illiterate viewers (who are also the bulk of Donald Trump's illiterate followers) to just buy the box set of..."Jaws"....DVD's from...http://www.amazon.com? Without commercial breaks!! Without having to watch the SyFy Channel!!

This blog is a proud supporter of not caring one iota about the differences between...."That"....and...."Which"...

...For those who are looking...

You certainly will never find such differentiation in a..."Sharknado"....script.

NBC-Universal (Universal Studios) Business Options With Science Fiction After 38 Years Of Mismanaging The "Battlestar Galactica" Property And 18 Years Of Pratfalling With The SyFy Channel Remain Abysmal




Universal Studios (Corporate Eyelids At Half Mast) - "Well...Maybe we'll get Steven Spielberg to deliver another Science Fiction box office blockbuster to us. That occurs how often now? Every 12 years or so?" (Universal Studios falls back asleep)

Gee!! Look At The Superior Packaging The "1978 Battlestar Galactica" Series Always Gets Overseas As Opposed To Here In The United States!!


Yeah, OK. The guy is speaking in German for those of us who may not understand him. But the common Universal (no pun intended) theme of..."Shared Visual Experience"...among all of us is plain as day. Mainly, that the...."1978 Battlestar Galactica"....series got superior packaging in Germany as opposed to all of us here in the United States.

One of those BIZARRE and truly ECCENTRIC marketing strategies Universal Studios has always held firmly in place with the...."1978 Battlestar Galactica"....series going back 38 years. Mainly, that foreign countries (always off the beaten path of where the fan base for this series has always been centrally located....here in the United States)...always get the superior packaging for this series.

In this particular case, the primary difference being, nice and shiny....Black Ice....metal (tin?) in the packaging in these German releases. Unfortunately, some of the crappy looking box art still remains on the external metal boxes of these German releases. Shown below.

Instead....this is an example of the JUNK on cardboard we have always gotten.... 



As I have always said in the past. Because of continued examples of Universal Studios continued...IDIOTIC & CRAPPY MANAGEMENT....like this....the..."1978 Battlestar Galactica"....series remains a...SLEEPING GIANT!!

You're Past Due For Another New Round Of "Fake Battlestar Galactica Movie Press Releases", Universal Studios!!


April 8th, 2014 - We didn't believe it then...


August 6th, 2012 - We didn't believe it here as we saw right through Bryan Singer's momentary speech impediment.


October 21st, 2011 - And we didn't believe it here as this poor gal was duped by the..."Universal Studios Establishment"....as well!!

But...we just like your fresh rounds of...."Fake Battlestar Galactica Movie"....press releases on this blog because we love seeing you (Universal Studios) continuing to make a..."Corporate Fool"....out of yourself with the..."Battlestar Galactica".... property you never had any clue on how to manage properly going all the back to 1978!!

The SyFy Channel's "Rebranding" Promo From 2009 Was An Incoherent, Embarrassing, And "What The Fu**?" Moment In This Channel's Long Line Of "What The Fu**?" Moments


Unfortunately, it took the SyFy Channel a good half decade to realize this monumental failure, and is only now switching back to what seems to be a steady stream of Science Fiction leaning programming. But only because the SyFy Channel finally realized that the OTHER CABLE NETWORKS were doing Science Fiction programming like they were supposed to be doing all along....and doing it a lot better than they ever did!!

From what I can...."De-Code"....and...."Decipher"....from the incoherent and embarrassing promo above... This promo was meant to really signify the...."SyFy Channel's...."Lazy Lapse"....into..."General Interest Television Programming"....including...

1. Movies of every conceivable subject matter from the...."Universal Studios Film Vault".....Handy, convenient, and ever so lazy!!

2. "C.S.I."...reruns. Handy, convenient, and ever so lazy!!

3. Cheap ass horror movies. Handy, convenient, and ever so lazy!!

4. Reality shows. Handy, convenient, and ever so lazy!!

5. Business suits in every production Ronald D. Moore ever did for them. On supposed alien planets supposedly thousands of light years from Earth!! Handy, convenient, and ever so lazy!!

6. Wrestling. Handy, convenient, and ever so lazy!! .....and cheap!!

Thank God NBC-Universal (Universal Studios) Doesn't Own The "X-Files"


If it did, it never would have reached nine seasons and returned last night for a limited run 10th season.

It's always important to add up the little blessings in life....such as the places where NBC-Universal (Universal Studios) is not......and has no negative influence.

I Think It's Safe To Say That The "Grand Old Party" (The Republicans) At NBC-Universal (Universal Studios) Have Always Been In Charge Of Mismanaging The "1978 Battlestar Galactica" Series On Purpose For The Past 38 Years




1. Whenever Republicans are put in charge of managing anything, "mayhem....chaos....destruction....loss of opportunity across the board....and an overwhelming sense of....'what a shame'....." inevitably follows everything they do in their wake.

2. Republicans are not...."Artsy People."....They have always been...

a. anti - The Arts
b. anti - Imagination
c. anti - Science Fiction
d. anti - Progress
e. anti - Perpetuating The Overall Better Good For All
f.  anti - Nostalgia

And across the aisle....

a. pro - "Always In It For Themselves" 
b. pro - "Let's Destroy This For The Fun Of It!!"
c. pro - "Let's Always Use The 'Bottom Line' As a Weapon Against Progress" 
 pro - "Let's Screw This Up Next Because We Don't Know Any Better And Don't Care."

It goes without needing to be said that Republicans also have always favored..."Lowest Common Denominator"....television programming....




....Over television programming that expands the imagination....


Is this due to the fact that they believe it is necessary to pander to the idiots in the television viewing audience, or is it a sad reflection on their own limited intellects as television programmers? Without sadness I robustly conclude that is the latter.

Behold!! Let's Take a Look At One Of The "Home Video" Titles NBC-Universal Gave Better Treatment To Than "Battlestar Galactica"



Yes..."The Munsters Scary Little Christmas".... was one of the hundreds of DVD titles Universal Studios gave better treatment and better respect to than...."The 1978 Battlestar Galactica"....series. A nice, crisp clear image....and nice squeaky clean box art.

I have nothing against..."The Munsters"....The show is great fun. Both the classic series with Fred Gwynne and Yvonne DeCarlo...and the remakes such as the flick above. 

Did it deserve better treatment on Home Video than what..."The 1978 Battlestar Galactica"....series ever got? No!!


This is the....SHODDY TREATMENT....the...."1978 Battlestar Galactica"....series got from NBC-Universal (Universal Studios)....

1. Crappy ass box art. (They didn't even try to make the box art attractive to the consumer.) Which ever so conveniently ties in with the argument Universal Studios has always shoved in front of itself like a shield for decades. "The....'1978 Battlestar Galactica'....merchandise just doesn't sell en masse to consumers." The irony being that low selling...."1978 Battlestar Galactica"....merchandise has always been the fault of Universal Studios itself via a carefully choreographed...."Man Made Catastrophe"...( think Flint, Michigan)...spanning decades on the part of Universal Studios consisting of intentionally screwed up merchandise Universal Studios keeps littering store shelves with (on purpose.)

2. One episode missing from these Blu-Rays....."The Magnificent Warriors"....

3. Serious framing issues with the widescreen versions of these episodes.

4. Reports indicating that any supposed digital clean up of the episodes was not done professionally and not as well done as it could have been done.

5. There were no new extras produced for this crappy Blu-Ray release, and were instead 10 year old extras carried over from..."The Battlestar Galactica - Complete Epic Series"....DVD release from October 2003 with its own endless issues with manufacturing defects....

a. Cracked Discs
b. Freezing discs
c. No digital clean-up of the pilot episode in particular.

When it comes to the...."1978 Battlestar Galactica".....series....The corporate mind (a scary entity) of NBC-Universal has always been in the gutter with junk like this instead....


And this....


And this....


And this....

How Did The SyFy Channel Become So "Skewed" In Everything It Does?


This blog has always spoken in length about the tragic acquiring of the once great and former..."Sci-Fi Channel"...by..."GE-Universal / Vivendi-Universal / NBC-Universal"....in the late 1990's...and turning it into a cess pool of endlessly conflicting programming formats and endless...."Identity Crisis"....issues for the channel spanning almost 20 years thus far.

This of course is due to the fact that the former and once great..."Sci-Fi Channel"....was purchased by the idiots at (You fill in the blank) - Universal who were not Science Fiction fans. It was instead purchased by clueless..."Technocrats".... who are always...."Technocrats"....first,...."Technocrats".....second...and.... non-Science Fiction fans... thereafter.

Because of this, programming on the SyFy Channel has always had this indigestible and odd flavor to it. Never Science Fiction...always bland...always conflicting in nature....always lacking a unified center. Additionally, the programming on the SyFy Channel has always gravitated towards odd preoccupations with unusual stunts in its programming. Such as the SyFy Channel's odd preoccupation with casting former child stars from the 1970's in their movies and on its reality shows (Barry Williams, Danny Bonaduce.) And also the SyFy Channel's odd preoccupation with former television series that had the softest impact on our culture and non-Sciece Fiction related... Such as..."Pee-Wee's Playhouse."... And then trying to resurrect them decades later in...."bits & pieces"... form on its reality shows... for whatever..."soft business reason"....they may have for doing so, and trying to turn it into an earth shattering event no one in the mass market audience ever notices or even remembers. The channel's odd preoccupation with making what they know are bad horror movies, and trying to turn that odd fact into a virtue. Even going so far as to non-verbally admit (but spoken loud and clear "round about-ly"..(sic)....in its press releases) that the low ratings these bad horror movies repeatedly generated was somehow advantageous for them as a business. And worth pursuing further.

The SyFy Channel has also had this...."odd preoccupation"....with the..."Twitter"...audience, as miniscule as it repeatedly has been for them in the grand scheme of things. Going so far as continuing to make...."Sharknado"....sequels for them (and only them) always at the exclusion of a fully attainable mass market audience overall for them if their programming was simply better thought out and more intelligent overall.

Since 1999, the Universal Studios owned and former Sci-Fi Channel has always been facing the precise opposite direction of what Science Fiction fans have always been facing. Whether it be the fans of the...."1978 Battlestar Galactica"....series....the fans of...."Farscape"....the fans of...."Stargate"....the fans of classic and GOOD....Science Fiction on television overall.

Instead...these...."Weird Technocrats"....who run the SyFy Channel have always been preoccupied with this,,,,"Weird Ass Programming"....everyone scratches their heads at. Weird ass programming embedded within the odd sub-culture of the SyFy Channel management from day one that reflected a simultaneous disdain for Science Fiction programming overall...and an affinity towards oddball programming decisions rooted in embarrassing preoccupations with the mass market television / movie failures of the past and..."has been"...and...."never were".... actors...

1. The collected works of Paul Reubens, Barry Williams, and Danny Bonaduce. 
2. Odd television programs from the 1980's such as...."Pee-Wee's Playhouse"....
3. Casper Van Dein
4. Tara Reid
5. David Hasselhoff
6. Wil Wheaton
7. Perez Hilton
8. Judd Hirsch
9. Downtown Julie Brown
10. 12 Monkeys
11. Blade Runner
12. The Thing

In Honor Of The New "Pee-Wee" Movie Coming From Netflix, The SyFy Channel Has Booked Actor Paul Reubens As A Guest Judge On "Face - Off"




http://www.syfy.com

Thank goodness the SyFy Channel always appraises the...."Pop Culture Worth"....of these... "Non-Science Fiction Non-Events".... in our culture (such as "Pee-Wee's new movie on... "Netflix"...)...and always tries to cash in on them on its cable network.

Did This Little Gem Of "Tasteless Low Budget Trash" Sneak By Our Radars Again And End Up In The "Wal-Mart $5.00 Discount DVD Bin" Once Again?





Never be too hard on SyFy Channel executives. Just remember...They all have mothers. At least in theory anyway.

It Brings To Mind...The "Sominex Sleep Aid"





http://www.boxofficemojo.com/schedule/?view=distributor&id=universal.htm

Somebody wake up the entire mass market movie going audience when it's all over so they can go and see some real movies with some real entertainment value from other (real) movie studios instead.
