SCI-FI SUCKS! (Now w/ 100% More SyFy)

Postby PHATON on Sat Jul 28, 2007 7:46 am

SCI-FI ruins and insults geeks with it's crap movies. They seriously think we're stupid. These channels are made for people who are willing to take anything stupid. They even showed one of the worst comic-book geek insult suck fests-Superman. Seriously that movie is stupid and it sucks, what's the world coming to?GEEKS UNITE!

This is what I feel is called in ye olden days of the intraweb as a flame war. Whereas douchebags of all assortments go online and start shit with the hope of getting people upset.

I'd expand on this but I'm looking at darkjedijaina's avatar and I am enjoying the view. Very nice.

I AGREE WITH FIEVEL!!!!!

What idiot thought this up? And what idiot thought it would be a good idea to spend money to change logos and marketing campaigns, etc, to promote something that now means absolutely nothing? This channel is going down the tubes this year. That's my prediction. It'll be the reincarnation of the country music channel, or maybe a new golf channel, or a striptease channel, or something, before the year is out. These people are giving up.

There used to be a website called Syfy. I can't find it anymore, so I assume it no longer exists.

It's a silly name which matches the integrity that the channel now has. We should all pronounce it "siffy".

i'm perplexed by this name as much as anyone.
i heard they wanted to name it SkyGy but george lucas threatened to sue.
then they were going to name it SILL·E but pixar threatened to sue.
so now it's SyFy until the jedi master SyFy-Dias hears about this and threatens to sue.
they may as well just call themselves StooPid. at least it would accurately convey the channel's programming.

Instead of changing the name, why don't they change their management? Bring in someone new to run the channel, and it might start being worth watching. I mean, who actually thought anyone would want to watch "Ice Spiders"?

This channel has the greatest logo known to humankind. [/sarcasm]

The name change means they are losing one of the few positives I can see - the "iF" promotional campaign that's been going on for years now. How the hell is "Imagine Greater" more interesting than "iF"?

Five part death of The Scifi Channel:

1. NBC Universal takeover
2. Begins showing content with highly tenuous links to scifi
3. Starts showing softcore porn late night
4. Wrestling? WTF?
5. Rebranded to SyFy

Keep tapdancing, Dave.

(Maybe he asked that the interview be conducted at that exact location so the din of the adjacent crowd would mask his explanation of the rebranding.)

I like that last part - "This isn't an excuse to put Law & Order on our air every night. It isn't. Trust me."

Law & Order every night? Of course not, Dave. That's just silly; that's your sister channel USA Network's job. At the most, Law & Order will probably air every other night on Syfy.

It makes no sense to rebrand the channel if all you're doing with said rebrand, aside from an all new imaging campaign, is mispelling the channel's name. The only reason they're doing this, so they say, is so they can have an identity that's able to be trademarked but that theory still doesn't hold water, as they said went through 300 other names and chose this out of all of them. I'm sure *one* out of those 300 was also able to be trademarked.

I stopped watching a long time ago. I'm very glad this is happening, as the channel I once knew and loved as The Sci-Fi Channel died and was buried a decade ago, but I just wish NBC Universal had chosen another name. They couldn't have chosen Beyond, as CBS Corporation owns Showtime Beyond, but Tomorrow or some other name (hell, they said they went through 300!) would suffice.

Their choice, Syfy, is lazy and just plain stupid. As I stated earlier, the emperor's truly had no clothes ever since Bonnie Hammer sunk her fangs in and drained the passion and energy this channel once had, then failed upward. Now, it has a "new" name to go with its principles - to cater to the lowest common denominator.

Again, the issue I and many others have is that if NBC Universal wants to rebrand the channel - DO SO. Don't just mispell its name and launch a new imaging campaign. Science fiction fans like myself gave up on this channel what feels like centuries ago. Rebrand entirely, continue programming pablum to mouthbreathers, and I and millions of others will get our science fiction fix elsewhere and keep ignoring this channel. Win, win.

Image

http://www.spacecast.com

I *really* wish we here in the U.S. had a channel like SPACE; hopefully with NBC Universal giving up the ghost and finally admitting they no longer want to program to the science fiction demographic, another conglomerate can lay the foundation and launch an actual science fiction channel.

Viacom, Time Warner, Liberty Media, Comcast, et al, the ball's in your court.

An interesting read, the subject of science-fiction in general is unfortunate: like the more "serious" authors even try to differentiate their science-fiction works from science-fiction. Now there's a huge stigma that science-fiction is just ray guns and giant sharks, but that should only be a small part of the genre rather than the entire genre itself. I'm not saying there are too many such garbage stories, but whenever a sci-fi story is any good no one, not even the story's creator, wants it called sci-fi. So the genre cannot be elevated.

That said, SyFy is r-tarded, they can produce much better content for the same (very little) amount of money they're currently investing in their shows and movies.
