    ::sigh::

    Even worse is that they're beefing up their reality show schedule:

    Beast Legends has already had several episodes air. Maybe they weren't on SyFy?

    Nope, one of the History channels.

    I am enjoying Face Off. At least the special effects makeup is related to SF shows since it is used in most shows and movies. I just watched the episode about constructing aliens and the artists created concepts that were intelligent and speculative so it was actually SF.

    I hope Paranormal Investigators debunks Mary. That would be some good TV!

    To be fair, it's always been the depths of mediocrity. It just used to have more little islands that would peek up above the surface.

    Yeah, after I posted that, I realized that they've actually sunken to the lower depths of mediocrity....almost into the lower strata of crapola.....

    :D

    Like the song "Video Killed The Radio Star", reality shows killed good television.

    And how did SCC end? Cliffhanger, or at least unresolved storyline? If so, yet another "Look what we got! A beloved show!" move on the part of SyFy that simply leaves new viewers in the same situation original viewers were left in.

    I wonder if T:SCC having Summer Glau in it means it'll get cancelled early during its SyFy run. :)

    There are only a few shows a year, over the years that I watch on SciFi or SyFy. As long as they continue showing SciFi shows at least one night a week, that is probably all I need.

    Yeah, the cool thing about television is you don't HAVE to watch the crap.

    Even if knowing it's there grinds away at your soul just a little bit.

    Especially on a channel that does things like run old shows under the title "an original" because they're going to even run the last three episodes that were never seen during the network run...

    Or thinks non-scifi/fantasy movies and shows belong on a channel whose name (despite spelling changes) still suggest it has a scifi-specific theme.

    Kind of like how they are promoting the "Last 10 Episodes of StarGate: Universe right now? (Implying that they are the un-aired concluding episodes of the series.)

    Maybe.

    I remember when they went back on their promise to do a 5th season of FARSCAPE, they tried to end the first half of the 4th season with the claim it was "season finale".

    This would make it seem the second half was actually the 5th season.

    Fail.

    We knew better, since the cast and crew had already leaked the news of the cancellation to a chatroom filled with at least 300 fans.

    SyFy has always lied to the viewers.

    SYFY aka NBC you mean? Someone needs to buy SYFY and get it back to the good old days.
    ALL!! TV Sucks but there isn't much else to do If you don't drink and go out at night.

    Someone did buy Syfy (as well as controlling ownership of NBCUniversal) - Comcast. Whether anything changes remains to be seen.
