postheadericon Why Battlestar Galactica Was A Major Accomplishment

October 2004 marked the start and the entrance of the weekly Battlestar Galatica television show in the United Kingdom, later being released in 2005 in other countries like Canada and the US. Ronald Moore, the creator and writer of Battlestar Galactica, wrote and directed the first episode to gain a 2005 Hugo Award for Dramatic Presentation in Short Form named “33″. April of 2006 marked the 65th Annual Peabody Awards, which incorporated Battlestar Galactica as well as others on their winning list.

The 2007-2008 Writers Guild of America was an widely publicized issue, especially since Battlestar Galatica was one of the major iniatiors of the whole strike. The Writers Guild started their strike in August of 2006, based off the wish for the mini webisode Battlestar Galactica: The Resistance to stop production, particularly due to the connection between this show and the third season.

This issue would stay a debate through the start of the third season. Lost and Heroes were other admired shows that were also on the frontline of this debate like Battlestar Galactica. Getting high ratings is not the way that the series gain most of its production profits, they are gained through high DVD sales and purchases made through ITunes. Due to the fact that Battlestar Galactica is a series that has experienced heavy time shifting, the Nielsen ratings system does not judge it on its system, which is the reason why the writers were seeking “new media” income to be put in place.

March 20, 2009 marked the finishing of the show Battlestar Galactica, even though there was some delay in the production of the fourth season due to the strike that was happening. Because he felt like it was rude to the fans, the creator of Battlestar Galactica decided that the websites and blogs of the show should be left inactive while the strike occurred. The website and blog site of Battlestar Galactica was soon back running after the strike at last ended.

The Sci Fi channel revealed in April 2006 that since Battlestar Galactica was such a success that the original creators would be producing a miniseries similar to it named Caprica with 24 screenwriter and Universal Television Studio. The series is focused on the Cylons, a race that fout out that their primary foe and enemy also worships the same monotheistic God as they do, placed in a time 58 years away from the time of Battlestar Galactica. The intial creators thought of making this miniseries a reality as soon as the opening of the second season.
