Wow. I wonder what that means in terms of programming, though. It seems like it got worse since the takeover.

Re: SyFy channel sucks now
Yes they do suck now....I rarely watching them anymore.

I think they changed to SyFy so that people couldn't say they are the SciFi channel with little to no SciFi. They actually starting going down the tubes before the name change.

Regardless of what their name is, the programming they have totally sucks.

Re: SyFy channel sucks now
Yah it totally sucks. I was a loyal Sci-Fi Channel viewer until "the dumbening" happened. I still have all my favourite shows and series and movies downloaded so I can re-create an a/v playlist based on TV Guide listings from the 90's.

I actually got rid of television once and for all after The Dumbening. I do everything online now.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 12790821


I agree with the OP too.

I noticed the decline in quality even before the SciFi/SyFy change, but it definitely accelerated after that. I often wondered why all of the really low-grade 'horror' films and other junk like wrestling was put on the channel. Some Sci-Fiers are into horror, but most of the folks I know are not; definitely not wrestling or the other C-grade or minus material that they have now.

It's all so degrading. Sci-Fi as a genre used to be interesting, futuristic, and reaching for something new. The SyFy channel is degrading. I feel like my IQ goes down when I watch it.

I find myself speculating that this is part of a trend across the media to dumb-down folks and promote a culture of violence.

Too bad... The media could have lifted humanity and taken us to better things. Instead it's all the lowest common denominator and going down from there.

Work in your garden, listen to an audio book, and marvel at the natural world around you instead.

Re: SyFy channel sucks now
No good sci-fi movies on SyFy.

No factual history on History.

No music on MTV.

Etc. etc.

Times have changed, and network/cable TV sucks ass.

They are becoming outdated. Everyone will be streaming on-demand content in the near future.

Re: SyFy channel sucks now
That Adventures of Merlin Series on their channel is great! I just finished watching 52 episodes on my Netflix streaming, and can't wait for season 5 to start next week.

Besides that show, though, when I was watching the the other day, it looked pretty cheesy stuff they had on. Not sure what was airing at the time.

Re: SyFy channel sucks now
Has anyone else noticed that since they changed the channel from SciFi to SyFy that the programming has gone to shit? I mean how many times are they going to show The Fifth Element this week? Every time I check the listings that stupid movie is on. What the fuck does pro-wrestling have to do with science fiction and why is the wwe on that channel? More stupid decisions by stupid people in charge of programming. Back in the day when they actually had sci-fi stuff on, it was a pretty cool channel to watch. Now all they have are reruns of their own crappy shows. I'm sick of Ghost Hunters, Eureka, Lost Girl, WWE, etc. on all the time at all hours. I can't imagine that SyFy can stay in business too much longer with their current programming.

Re: SyFy channel sucks now
Warehouse 13 season 5 episode 1 was probably the biggest let down for any episode of any scifi show that I have seen! The whole fight scene between Claudia and Paracelsus only lasted like 5 min. From the way the previews where going it sounded like the fight could have been half the episode! It just seems like they slapped anything together to end the series! This is just another prime example of how the new "syfy" channel takes a great show and just flushes it right down the toilet! As it stands right now I absolutely REFUSE to watch anything on the syfy channel! YOU SUCK syfy CHANNEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: SyFy channel sucks now
I used to love the History Channel until it became redneck central. Now, finding a show that actually has some historical basis to it is very difficult. Pawn Stars? Really? Ice Road Truckers was cool the first time around but do I really want to watch all those douchebags driving up and down some mountain in South America as part of a different reality show? Now H2, formerly History International, has the historical shows while History Channel has nothing but reality crap. Then again, History networks is also run by NBC. Surprise, surprise. It seems like NBC networks are all shitty. Fire everybody and start over.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19168269


I remember there was a reason you lusted after having cable tv... infact many reasons:

Discovery Wings (an entire fucking channel devoted to flying)
connections
the day the universe changed
beyond 2000
shark week
gi diary
firepower
Tales of the gun
Shows about the civil war first thing in the morning.
shows about astronomy late at night.

now everything is reality bs.. even most movies are total reworked trash. Thats why I dont own a tv.

there was a time when tv was cool:

Re: SyFy channel sucks now
I recently had chance to check out the channel since I moved back to Canada. Was looking forward to the Sci-Fi Friday they had when I lived down there. Sadly to my horror they had some move that would make most b-rated moves shine. What I find funny is when I moved back to Canada the Space Channel up here was a joke, but now I would consider it on par to where SciFi (SyFy) was back in 2000 and getting better.

If there are any Syfy execs looking to at this thread my advice as so many have suggested. Drop the wrestling, put some money to buying quality Scifi show. Check out the SpaceCast channel in Canada for inspiration.

It changed to SYFY when it was bought by NBC. NBC is more into making money, than showing real Sci-Fi. Yes, I agree it sucks now.

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.

SyFy is a pile of shit now. Instead of doing a two day long Twilight Zone marathon they do this short 20-hour marathon that gets interrupted by WWE crap wrestling and a stupid two episode mini-marathon of Spartacus. Who the fuck watches wrestling anymore? What a joke. Fuck you SyFy, you estranged your original viewing audience and tried to go after another audience. Now that your base is gone you're trying to regain ratings. I hope that SyFy channel's rating get so low that the channel goes out of business.
