It's not just "Battlestar Galactica". I detest all idiotic in-name-only
If they want to make a show that's different, then just make a new show.
Why bother stealing the old show's name and then making it into something
very different? It's moronically stupid ... but then Hollyweird and
management in general ARE moronically stupid! :-\

Real "Battlestar Galactica" will always be around in a fan sense, but in
the public sense it's been replaced by Ron Moore's garbagised version.
It's extremely unlikely real "Battlestar Galactica" will ever be added to
properly, despite Glen Larson's attempts. Having two (or even three if the
other fool gets his way) different versions existing under the same name
is silly enough, having them competing against each other at the same time
is also moronically stupid.
