Whoever conjured up the term "Syfy" hardly can be expected to know much about science fiction. What the hell is syfy?

Sorry, it's maybe just my petty hate. However it does look logical: to use "syfy" and put Seagal or whoever into the category

Are you saying it's her (someone like her) responsible for selecting films for "syfy" channel, Kevin?

That would explain a lot... Lucky me - I don't even get to see it :)

Apparently the american version of the channel - which has no affiliation to the british one and both are totally separate organisations - shows pretty much nothing but wrestling nowadays.

I hate it when channels start showing stuff, that has absolutely f*** all to do with what the channel set out to show in the first place.

The Biography channel here in the uk, used to show biogs of famous people and then started showing stupid ghost related reality tv s**** : (

SyFy is supposed to be pronounced "Siffy". This can be read or heard as 'siffy, an abbreviaiton of "It's iffy". Enough said?

Then there's the history channel, which seems to be rather fond of storage wars

When I was last there, I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand, walking through the streets of Soho in the rain.

The latest and final Series of Warehouse 13 started a couple of weeks back and what has happened to a once great show.The main characters have become gross caricatures of themselves,Pete's little boy in a toyshop routine has become whiney and annoying,Mica's anal retentive big sister,smug and annoying,Claudia,teen angst lippy attitude,spoilt brat and annoying,Artie's benign uncle, suffocating mother hen and....well you get the picture.Story lines have been spoilt by a pantomime "he's behind you" in big clowns feet element,Anthony Head's Captain Hook performance in the season premier,what WERE you thinking Tony? - destroy my credibility as a serious actor and flush my career down the toilet?...serious meltdown!!Used to love this show but last two series,more Scooby Don't than Scooby Doo.

And, obviously, with a link instead of conversation or opinion or anything closer to human :)

Look, Marilyn, if ever you tried to *talk* to people, maybe some of them would talk back... just a suggestion

And it only took her 27 days to reply,how did she post,pony express and steam boat across the Atlantic?

Anita says:
I think it takes only about a week for a steam boat to cross the Atlantic...

It is research what takes a lot of time, you know :)
