NBCUniversal Is Run By IDIOTS!!!

If you had any idea just how much of a blind rage I am engulfed in at this very moment, you wouldn’t be thinking that maybe I am being a tad harsh.  For there all sorts of words that I used to be very proficient at spewing, but if you are offended by me calling the powers that be over at [NBC Universal] a bunch of idiots—TOO BAD!

You see, I just got finished watching the series end to [Stargate Universe] on [Syfy], and it REALLY SUCKED!  No, as a matter of fact, I can’t stop screaming.

You see (again), I am a big fan of [Stargate SG-1] and [Stargate Atlantis].  Therefore, I was really excited when they started another series when Stargate Atlantis ended its run.

Be assured that I got over my excitement before the very first episode of Stargate Universe was over.  For the plot was so very dark, and it kept getting darker until I was not at all excited about there being another season to come.

Oh, but they weren’t through jerking me around yet.  For they had the crew of Destiny, which is the Ancient ship that they were trapped on, working together much better, which is the way it should have been from the very start.  In fact, it was getting to where I was really dreading the end of the show.

Why, oh why, didn’t I just stop watching after the first few miserable episodes of the first season?  For that would have saved me from watching all of the crew go into stasis pods (except for one, who had two weeks to figure what was wrong with his pod) because of there not being enough energy to sustain life support for the three year journey to the next galaxy in FTL (Faster Than Light) in order to escape the machine ships, and seeing him looking at all of the pretty lights (stars and planets) flying by and smiling just before the screen went to black.

No, I wouldn’t be surprised if it is a communist plot, and I don’t care if that is a grossly outdated expression.  For that would explain why NBCUniversal would rather authorize funding for things, like [Syfy Original Movies], which you need to have a couple of gallons of vodka in you before they even start being entertaining, instead of quality shows.

Have you ever seen one?  Okay, you should know what I am talking about.

If you haven’t, they aired an incredibly cheap knock-off of [Thor], by the name of [Almighty Thor], on the very same day of the blockbusters opening, and this was after airing [Battle of Los Angeles] when [Battle Los Angeles] opened!  Yeah, maybe a couple of gallons of vodka ain’t enough.

So, why I am screaming about NBCUniversal instead concentrating all of my ire for Syfy?  Well, NBCUniversal became the owner of Syfy around 4 years ago, which was around the time when its programming started to go downhill in a hurry.

Can someone please explain to me what [SmackDown] has to do with science fiction?  Oh, it’s on account of the wrestling being fictional, and it taking some scientific computations to keep the wrestlers from breaking their necks?

Right.  I think I need to skip the vodka and start mainlining [Everclear].

You know, I followed Stargate:Atlantis for awhile, and liked some of the elements of the show, and how it reminded me of the early days of Star Trek: TNG. But what bothered me was the Rodney character, who was an arrogant, scientific bully. In fact, in one episode he basically mocks a religious people on a planet (and receives virtually no reprimand.) His character was obnoxious enough that I stopped following the show (that, and the writing got REALLY BAD into the 4th season and beyond...)

The Stargate series features these military bases on far off planets where everyone is always working and there is NO military chaplaincy. What happened to this? Are there no people of religious faith in the stargate world anywhere? What is this, the Soviet Union? Express any religious faith and get killed by an atheist goverment?

Atlantis had a "councilor", but what was hilarious was that she had virutally no answers for people's crisis, and in virtually every counciling session she'd just end up prescribing a drug! How worthless!

Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Lavender!!! Yes, I agree with you about Rodney, but I think they did a pretty good job of showing what a small-minded man he really was, especially when it came to spiritual possibilites. SG-1 did the same thing with Samantha Carter's character, who was devoutly scientific in her way of looking at things, but on several episodes, they had her admitting that there is a lot that science just cannot explain, not even with the supposedly very advanced knowledge of the Ancients.

As in regards to all three series, they flirted with the doctrines of several religious belief systems, with Buddhism being the most prevalent. For the Ancients learned how to rise above this plain of existence, and then they adopted their cardinal rule of absolute non-interference in the daily lives of those still stuck in their physical bodies, which would make them like our Heavenly Father and his holy angels. That is, at least that is the way it was for the supposedly good Ancients. For the Ori were also Ancients, who wanted to control those who were still stuck in their physical bodies for the benefit of the Ori, which would make them like Satan and his horde of rogue angels.

P.S.: I should have said that absolute non-interference with the daily lives of those still stuck in their physical bodies was like the way our Heavenly Father and his holy angels are supposedly like. For He has made it abundantly clear to me that He has a hand in everything that we do while we are still a part of this world, and blessed be those who will want want to believe that.

You know though, I got the same sort of vibe from Star Trek as well. There was no longer religion and all you had was a sappy empath who could "understand the emotions of someone" blah blah blah. I gave up on the stargate series after the first couple seasons of Atlantis.

Lavender Darwin said...

...you've given me an idea for a future post, btw. Thanks!

FishHawk said...

I don't know if I should be looking forward to it or dreading it, my dear Lavender. (LOL?)

It'll be great. Something along the lines of, "Sci-Fi Atheism Stinks!"
