Yup. It has gone shitty now. It was great when they had Starlight, Battlestar Galactic, etc. Now, what do they have worth watching? Quoting: AlcoholicRunner
The WWE, of course. Just kidding. If the people at SyFy were smart, they would partner up with GLP and create a weekly "news" program based on GLP threads. Imagine the ratings that show would get especially when people are following threads like "Something just went BEZERK in the Gulf of Mexico..."
People all over the world would be tuning in for those news updates. The beauty of it is that the program could put a synopsis of really long threads and condense them into a few minutes of news. I would be willing to bet that GLP News on SyFy would get better ratings than anything on CNN.
People at SyFy, are you listening? Of course not.
Now THAT's a top idea. It was one of the scenarios we discussed actually. That the whole deal was a script in the making. We uncovered all this stuff, and realised it was the research for FRINGE! LOL. (the stuff we uncovered, not the thread - that's still an on going process)
I used to look on with envy here in Australia at the US SciFi channel, as our version was totally shit. Then we got pretty much all you guys got in the US.
Pretty dull. And it's not f'ing sci-fi!!! A lot of it is horror or fantasy.
Surely, with so much stuff to choose from -
Lost in Space, Land of the Giants, Captain Scarlet, Thunderbirds, U.F.O, Space Above and Beyond, Battlestar Galactica (old and new), Buck Rogers, The Tomorrow People, Dark Skies (not falling skies), Defying Gravity, Babylon 5, Survivors (not the game show), V (old and new), X-files, Farscape, Firefly, The Outer Limits, Time Tunnel, The Invaders, Quantum Leap, Heros, Sliders, Dark Angel, Andromeda, Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy, Quark, The 4400, BLAKE's 7
, Space 1999, Roswell, Lexx, Earth 2, Millenium, Earth Final Conflict, Planet of the Apes, Taken, Aeon Flux, Primeval, Cruisade, In Search Of, Giant Robot, SeaQuest DSV, Battleship Yamato, Battle of the Planets, hell, even MacGyver!
- they could do a better mix.
I'm not even listing all the anime or old sci-fi cartoons.
Plus of course we have all the Star Treks etc.
They could pick up Dark Skies, Defying Gravity, Heroes right now and they'd be a success. (especially Defying Gravity, which pissed me off enough to write to them after they canned it.)
Oh, and Caprica. How could they can Caprica!!
