My take on Sci-Fi channel.
In the 90s it rocked. Once it decided to make Original movies......It sucked. However some.....Very few Sci-Fi Originals are good like Tin Man which is not the first thing I think of when I think of Science Fiction.
To me Sci-Fi channel aside from a few Sci-Fi type shows.....Is rather insulting to the Sci-Fi Genre. So good thing they re-branded as SyFy. I say keep the name. It fits the network quite well.
I won't turn to that channel for true Science Fiction anyways. The channel was good then slowly went down hill. Now it hangs on what? 2 or 3 Sci-Fi type shows?
Plus ever since they re-branded the heads at that network have said some insulting things about the old channel & fans. Saying MST3K was crap & saying Sci-Fi fans are all basement dwellers. So whatever if they wanna be SyFy. Let em.

Personally I think "SyFy" sucks, I liked it better when it was "Sci-Fi" and they played old classics like Dark Shadows, Tales From the Darkside and the original Battlestar Galactica and the list goes on...when they first came on back in the early 90's, they played some good stuff that you don't see and will never see on TV again. They also pulled a fast one this July 4th by not playing the bi-annual Twilight Zone marathon, pissed a lot of people off. Well go figure they are victims of the NBC Universal merger and dont' forget another NBC Universal acquisition, The Weather Channel which also now blows.
The whole purpose of ditching cable and being on Roku and other online content is because of much of what's on TV sucks IMHO.
No thanks, unless they stream some old content as well as their plethora of new series, I won't be too interested in adding this channel.
And dont' even ask me about why World Championship Wrestling is on SyFy either
Why is Jersey Shore on MTV (Music Television)? Why is Psych on USA (it's filmed in Canada)? Why is Celebrity Rehab on VH1 (Video Hits 1)? Why is Children's Hospital on Cartoon Network?
Who cares? If you like the shows, watch them, if not don't. Personally, I loved the new BSG and Caprica and couldn't care less about Tales From the Darkside or the OG BSG.
Some of the reasons why Cable & Satellite suck?
Aside from Psych being on USA. LOL! As out of State filming locations are okay. As long as the programming is geared to the people on that channel. Not as bad as Wrestling on a Science Fiction channel unless the Wrestling involves Aliens. Which SyFy is a half assed insult of a Science Fiction network anyways.
Back on topic.
