This being the SyFy Channel, with its aversion to all things..."Source Material"...it manages to get its corporate hands on...is as far away from doing anything..."Van Helsing"...related as one can get. Instead, this is a low budget..."Mad Max"....world in ever reliable and dirt cheap..."Vancouver, British Columbia"....for the SyFy Channel. With swipes of..."Walking Dead"...."Spacehunter: Adventures In The Forbidden Zone".....and low budget..."Biker Chick Flicks"...from the 1970's.
The SyFy Channel has always had this...."Thing"....(problem)...about following the source material of previously copyrighted titles....
1. Battlestar Galactica
2. Flash Gordon
3. Van Helsing
....and instead doing whatever the hell they want to do with the titles. They may call it..."Creative Licensing"....but I prefer to refer to it as what it really is..."Bastardization of Source Material".....
Read the books Universal Studios has tried and failed to censor on Amazon.com...
And read the 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 book review section) and not actually buying and reading the books.
I'll leave the other 150 locations under wraps for now.
