Besides the fact:
-- that all it needs now are pink bows and unicorns and this channel will be every MY LITTLE PONY fan's wet dream...
-- That there is no "Science" in SyFy. At least not any we can see in the trailer. It's all some fantastic, quasi-mystical claptrap.
This trailer is hard to load and the website doesn't allow you to make your own damn decisions on where you want to go until you do see the trailer.
Hey, I have an idea - why don't I set up a web server or two and set up a Hulu-like site where you can get all sorts of Science Fiction / Fantastic Television for a low cost yearly subscription? It certainly would serve fans better than SyFy. We could sell merchandise too - DVD sets, toys, games, t-shirts, etc...
Tell you what SyFy - instead of Imagining Greater, why don't you imagine you actually respect our intelligence? Why don't you imagine you actually respect what it is you do as a network?
Because here it is - every step of the way - you've shot yourself in the foot. Cancelling FARSCAPE. Not promoting BATTLESTAR GALACTICA's critical acclaim. Creating reality shows for the network that have absolutely NOTHING to do with reality or science fiction.
How about imagining you're an HBO and you're going to do good shows? Critically acclaimed shows no matter what the budget?
Why don't you imagine you actually have some sense of taste? (WWE? Really? WHO WANTS TO BE A SUPERHERO? Really?)
If you actually created more shows you could be proud of - the BSG's, Eureka's, Farscape - then maybe you could actually hold your head high in pride instead of working twice as hard trying to put a dress on a pig and calling it art. Because when you do good work - word gets around. Fast. Hell, when you at least try word gets around.
But SyFy - admit it - you're embarassed to be associated with genre television. You want to broaden your demographic (Read: water it down, soften it). You want to go to parties and mention where you work. Again, the key to doing that:
Doing good work no matter what the budget.
(Case in point: DOCTOR WHO - 1960'S, 70'S 0r 80's. Shot on video. Still seen around the world)
Michael Jackson is dead and so is the Science Fiction Channel. At least Michael's funeral gets a Nielsen rating that's worth a damn.
