Re: SyFy channel sucks now
Talk about declines, what about the 'History Channel'. There's no history on it anymore. It's all 'Pawn Star' marathons an alligator hunting. WTF????
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 20096532


I call the History Channel the UFO Hitler Channel because a few years back all it was was UFO and Hitler documentaries.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 12790821


I called it the War channel because originally it was just one war documentary after another, WWI, WWII, etc. all the different battles, each its own documentary, mostly old ones in black & white. I hated that channel then.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14408911


The channel was awesome then, it sucks now. All they show is all that Ice Road Truckers, Pawn Stars and other such crap. Maybe History Channel should follow the SyFy channel's recipe and make shows like Ice Road Pawn, Life After Ice Road Trucking, Ice Road Apocalypse, Ice Road Presidents, Brad Meltzer's Ice Road Decoded, 101 Gadgets That Changed Ice Road Trucking, and the sure to be everyone's favorite, Ice Road Vietnam. Ah, hell, they should just change the name of the channel to Ice Road History.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 20191040


Ice Road Apocalypse, wasn't that a movie that SyFy already did?

Re: SyFy channel sucks now
If anyone on this board has connections to NBC I just want to say that you guys at SyFy have a bevy of loyal viewers that are ready to come back to your channel. In order for that to happen, the channel needs return to its roots and put in some quality science fiction programming. By sci-fi programming I do not mean countless reruns of Stargate SG1 either. That's what made people stop watching in the first place. Put in some X-Files, Twilight Zone (original series), movies like Total Recall, and mini-series like Lost Room. Then you'll be on your way.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19168269


Or how about some "Dr. Who" ?

And get rid of the stupid wrestling (or "rassling" as we used to call it). There are plenty of other channels which have wrestling! And those silly "reality"-type shows like Ghost Hunter which are shot in black-and-white and have "OMG" and pseudo-surprised screams as their main dialogue.

If you're looking for re-runs, how about "The Magician" (starring Bill Bixby), "In Search Of...", or "Ray Bradbury Theater"? Even the old "Buck Rogers" and "Battlestar Galactica" (with Lorne Greene) have more interesting plots than the current shows. "Eureka" started out really good, and then got into the goofy "timeline/parallel universe" theme. If you want to do something "campy", how about "Mystery Science Theatre" where they take old groaner movies and dissect them with smart-ass remarks?

I love the old Ray Bradbury Theater shows. When I was a little kid I used to watch them on USA Network on Saturday afternoon. MST would also be cool. The whole wrestling thing is beyond stupid. I'm not sure whose cock Vince McMahon sucked to get SyFy to run WWE on its channel.

How about Knight Rider (original), The Incredible Hulk series, or even The Six Million Dollar Man?

Re: SyFy channel sucks now
A 'crawl' through science fiction history would be fantastic.

Start with that movie with the rocket ship stuck in the moon's eye, Flash Gordon etc, and crawl all the way up to present.

The more interactive they made the experience, the mpore they would see what we like, and want.

For series, they could air eps 1 & 2 as a teaser, or if they did have a pilot ep, that.

I would 110% sit through a marathon of that.

If they were really smart they would get merchandising sorted prior, at least from a planning stage, and supplier stage, and do just in time, or manufacture to order.

Imagine being able to buy original Hulk, 6 Million Dollar Man, Blake's 7, U.F.O. or Shado T-shirts etc?

We're the tards who stay up to 1am in order to watch a show bumped from 9pm slot to 10pm, to 11pm etc. We are sci-fi tragics and a market not really well tapped in to.

1963 version of the Outer Limits was something else!

Many people copied the original stories. Including James Cameron, Spielberg and Lucas.

Agree 110%. Now if only SyFy would start listening to fans instead of to dumbass producers and network programmers we would have a very good channel.

Re: SyFy channel sucks now
I'd like to see SyFy re-broadcast the entire X-Files series. I have a whole new take on Gillian Anderson after seeing how many guys she's lived with in real life and how many kids she's had out-of-wedlock. That's her business, but I'd watch with an entirely new take on "Scully".
As far as the crappy "SyFy Original Production" movies, they probably write off three times what the movie actually cost for tax purposes. You can't do that if you just pay rights to broadcast old serials or the great 50's sci-fi movies.

X-Files should have a permanent time slot on SyFy. So, too, should the original Twilight Zone and the original Outer Limits. Fucking people at SyFy are such idiots that they can't see any further than their own asses.

Watching Saw 3 right now. I guess it's better than some of the other crap they have been showing. It still has nothing to do with science fiction, though. I think I'd rather be watching The Last Starfighter but SyFy hasn't showed that in years.
