Re: SciFi to be called Syfy?

I think they should change the name to: Channel that shows really shitty movies with terrible CGI effects. Thats more fitting lol

Television is dangerous.

Re: SciFi to be called Syfy?

SciFi channel kicks ass, SYFY is stupid and lame.  This is insulting for fans like me, where I don't talk in internet lingo, I don't use 3's as E's, I don't say lol, I think they are doing this to dumb down to a younger generation.  I wanna cry.  Someone hug me (BTK)

Re: SciFi to be called Syfy?

This is pretty lame but don't really care too much cause the only thing I ever watch on there is Eureka!

Re: SciFi to be called Syfy?

Hmmmm... "Ain't it cool"?  No, not really.  Changing the name of a channel I don't receive doesn't  affect my life any but dumbing things down and appealing to the most moronic common denominator like this really rips my knitting.  mad

Re: SciFi to be called Syfy?

*hugs GARDEN tightly* it'll be ok mate smile and IMO, the stupidest thing I have heard in a while well except for someone declaring Paris Hilton can act! lol

Re: SciFi to be called Syfy?

They just want to profit on a brand name. How could you expect anything different?

If you've seen Repo! The Genetic Opera you'll know Paris Hilton is good....as a drug addicted surgery addicted slut....hmmm...acting?  I think not, I take back my statement!!!!

Re: SciFi to be called Syfy?

I was watching the SciFi channel yesterday, realizing that soon, it'll be SyFy channel. Wonder, for those that wanted cable for the Sci-Fi Channel, not the SyFy channel, if there is a lawsuit waiting to happen? What if an elderly couple, not connected to the internet, comes home to find their Sci-Fi channel gone, replaced by SyFy. Little Grandma Jane has a heart attack, thinking that her show is gone forever...

...wow, this some good shit...thanks Michael...

Re: SciFi to be called Syfy?

All I ever watch on SciFi is Monsterfest every Halloween, so the change isn't that big of a deal.  I just think the name is stupid.  What's the fucking difference?  Just leave it as is.
