The late Lorne Greene made the character of..."Commander Adama"...instantly appealing to mass market audiences. The late Mr. Greene portrayed..."Commander Adama"...as...majestic....the father everyone wanted to have...the leader you knew could handle any situation....approachable by the crew members with any problem they might have...a formidable adversary to the..."Cylons"...and..."Baltar"...and the..."Council of 12"....too stupid to realize the necessity of using military force in dire situations.
Edward James Olmos as Commander Adama. Well. he FROWNED a lot and then he FROWNED a lot. Nothing there for mass market audiences to latch onto or to find attractive.
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.
