After Tubines announcement about commercials on TV for DDO was posted -- which by the way is wonderful -- a ways down the thread the SyFy channel was mentioned as a channel where the advertising might hit first, along with G4 being another. Awesome!
So then I started to wonder about the SyFy channel as a whole....
The players of DDO seem like the exact people to ask.
Be honest, please.
What do you think of the SyFy channel?
If I gave it a letter grade for overall content and shows and things...well, things science fiction related that actually please me, on a good day I'd give it a C -
But that is just me.
My reasons for the low grade on a good day are:
Seeing wrestling on a "Scifi" channel. I don't think anything on that channel gets me more bent out of shape, no pun intended.
Also, why are James Bond films aired? Bond is fiction, sure, but scifi? Wha -?
I'm not a big fan of Ghost Hunters either. Sheesh, if I knew I could make money jumping around in the dark for no reason I woulda....
One other thing. When Michael Crichton died wouldn't you think a TV channel that specialized in science fiction would at least mention his death? A different channel had a Michael Crichton movie day. Yoo-hoo!!! Hello!
And wouldn't it be swell (yeah, I said swell) to have a show set aside where you actually had science fiction and all other related genre writers on TV, and had someone chat with them about new books and things? Something like CSPAN? To actually talk with writers of science fiction on a supposedly science fiction based channel. Weird.
Anyway, I don't want to sway opinions here, although you can tell this bugs me.
I am curious if folks love it or hate it.
It's strong points are things like Caprica and Battlestar before it. Back in the day Farscape rocked. What happened there? I like some of the mini-series they've have aired, too.
So what are some views of the SyFy channel?
I know we as fans of the genre need something set aside all for us on TV to quench our imaginations, but I tell ya, I have the urge to start my own TV channel at times.
Whew! I feel better people.
Thanks everyone ahead of time
P.S. Sorry for the rant. I never rant....
