Universal/Sci-Fi Channel fancies itself an expert commentator on such issues as 9/11, terrorism, and torture. Unfortunately, choosing the “Battlestar Galactica” brand name as a means of commenting on these issues is as ABSURD as choosing a game show to talk about the Vietnam War.
Universal Studios tries to cover up the fact that they don’t know a DAMN THING about “Battlestar Galactica”, by claiming “Battlestar Galactica” is whatever they claim it is. As I stated earlier, Universal Studios BACKED AWAY from reviving “Battlestar Galactica”, by having Ronald D. Moore THROW TOGETHER a “Star Trek” clone with contemporary political commentary thrown in for good measure. If Universal Studios wants to get into the business of political commentary, they were free to produce a series of documentaries for any of the news channels. If Universal Studios wants to throw in their two cents worth of ANTI-INTELLIGENCE on such issues as 9/11, terrorism, and prisoner torture; fine. But where is the logic behind sticking these issues under the umbrella of the “Battlestar Galactica” copyright? “Battlestar Galactica” is a 1978 television series that has contents Universal Studios STILL WON’T TOUCH with a 10 foot cattle prod. So, what was the point in them in ONLY USING the “Battlestar Galactica” title in Ronald (Dumb-ASS) Moore’s tv series? What was the point in them re-routing the “Battlestar Galactica” title as an umbrella for voicing their corporation’s thoughts on politics? Bill O’Reilly or Lou Dobbs would be more than happy to have a Universal Studios executive on their show talking about politics. Perhaps Universal Studios realizes that such a possibility would yield MORE RIDICULE from viewers than anything else, as Universal Studios executives ARE NOT KNOWN for being terribly intelligent in such matters.
