An Open Letter to the Sci-Fi Channel

Now you have heard me bitch about the Sci-fi channel's idiotic scheduling and show choices. I didn't think I could be that far off, and according to Marc Bernardin over at PopWatch blog, I am not. Marc echoes all my complaints over the past fuew months very well indeed! Here is a cut from the "letter"


Why are you not way more awesome?

Don't get me wrong, when you're good—like with Battlestar Galactica or Eureka (and I'll even give you credit for Doctor who, despite that being a BBC show you just imported)—you're a phenomenal destination network. But let's be honest here, there's not a lot of "good" on your schedule. The Stargate franchise is stale, Flash Gordon (right) is a derisible, stillborn remake, and ECW Wrestling is…wrestling! (And I swore an oath never to speak of Who Wants to Be a Superhero again.)

He goes on for a bit more, and it's great fun, and he makes some really good point to book. Click here to read more

I once wrote a letter to the Sci-Fi Channel guys about their 'Sci-Fi Channel Original Movies':

'Okay, you've killed all the monsters and the remainder have left town. How about some REAL science fiction films now...'
