Neither of which is an actual new show (one Canadian, one English, both from last year, neither renewed for Season 2). But there are some new, actual science fiction shows coming (Defiance being the first, with at least a couple more this fall). So it looks like they MIGHT be moving back towards a more sci-fi orientation than they've had for many years. We shall see.

We can hope. But we also need quality. Sinbad looks sin, well, bad.

Sinbad was mostly OK. Primeval started out shaky, and got better as it went. But I'm more interested in the stuff Syfy is doing themselves. There was a time when their tentpole shows were science fiction, and the vaguely-SF light fluff was the other stuff they did. Now, it's all vaguely-SF light fluff (and don't get me wrong; I like most of their shows, and like Haven a lot, but they're not really very science-fictiony). They seem to be heading back in that direction. We'll just have to see if the quality will make the movement sustainable.

Usually I'd join in The "SYFY sucks" chant on this one BUT in this case, the show has run its course (IMHO). It's past time to wrap up the characters and give them a good sendoff (or death?). At least the show gets some closure and we get to gnash on how the writers screwed up the ending, which they'll inevitably do!

I've learned to accept cancellations now and this one doesn't bother me too bad. It's had a good run. Wonder if Haven is coming back?

Actually, they bring in Kelly Hu, then they renew it for another season (although not a full one).

Yes. Full (13-episode) season.

Golf is better. The commentators always speak in low voices, whether they are actually near the players or not.
