This week in Syfy:
Why the heck did they re-brand the SciFi channel as syphie? I mean, series, what a hugh mistake!
Assuming Kevin is on vacation, I did want to remind everyone that the new season of Eureka premiers Friday at 9 PM ET.
Also, SyFy is running last season's Eureka shows, tonight at 8 PM ET and starting tomorrow AM at 8 ET.
As someone who regularly survives the Most Dangerous Night on Television, I also wonder why the change. Is it all the Ghost Hunter BS or something to do with wrestling?
parsy, who likes Moonlight.
BTW, why am I not on this ping list?
I write stories on my http://libertyfic.proboards.com and your all invited to peruse. Check out VISION on the Ongoing Stories section I just created.
SyFy sounds sissyfyed
I think I may have contracted SyFylus.
I can’t stand Ghost Hunter.
Who are you mooning tonight?
It’s part of the dumbing down of the U.S. - any spelling goes!
the jokes makes themselves....
new hit shows on SyFy... a woman with multiple personalities named SyFyal
don’t miss the big new mini-series SissyFys
Me too. That “Spirit Orb” crap!!!! What a load of hooey.
parsy, who believes in ghosts, but....
Just myself. Just found my copy of Labyrinths of Reason that I got 45 pages into before it got lost in car.
parsy, whos mind is a maze
I just get tired of seeing people walk around with night vision cameras and I never see or hear anything that would convince me.
That orb is a trip though. I’m like, um, ok. Wow. /s
I hear that show will really suck you in once you start watching.
parsy, who thinks he has his greek myths straight here????
Yeah, but right before the commercial...they almost find something....so you wade thru dumb*ss commercials, and ....then one of the guys trips over his suitcase and it wasn’t a ghost that pushed him after all.
parsy, who has fallen for that so much he is embarrassed
They rebranded it SyFy because they found out you couldn’t trademark SciFi and they wanted to be able to protect themselves hijacking like the smut industry did when they labeled movies XXX. It’s a silly name they chose, but the exercise itself makes sense, especially as they branch out into book publishing and other external ventures. Having an unprotected trademark is dangerous stuff.
Probably because morons kept calling it “Skiffy”.
Welcome to Hooked On Phonics World.
Check your intellect at the door.
Neither Jason or Grant buy into “orbs” unless they do something *really* bizarre or inexplicable.
99% of the time, they discount them as dust or moisture in the air.
Still chuckling about Warehouse 13...likely to bring more tourists to South Dakota.
