The couple episodes I saw I actually liked. This show is based off of a web-series, that the channel decided to bring to tv.
I did not know that. Explains a lot.
But I have to say the whole MIB/secert organization devoted to keeping people in the dark about monsters or aliens is getting old.
And they don't even do it well. SPECIAL UNIT 2 at least did this with tongue planted firmly in cheek and made it fun, not to mention they had a far better name for the creatures. LINKS sounds mysterious. ABNORMALS sounds, well, ugly and derogatory.
As for the Sci-fi channel, they've had some decent shows. Farescape was really good-(although I'm not sure if that was a Sci-Fi productions,or just one they picked up from somewhere else.)
I think it was a pick-up, like LEXX. Then again most of what Sci-Fi airs are pick-ups. The really popular series like SLIDERS and STARGATE SG-1 were pick-ups from other networks. In the case of STARGATE it shifted over to Sci-Fi when Showtime dropped it's Sci-Friday line-up to air programming targeted at a gay and lesbian demographic.
I also remember Sci Fi Buzz and the Anti-Gravity Room. Those were fun and I wish they'd bring something like them back.
I think I caught exactly one of those when I first got satellite, which we got solely for the Sci-Fi channel as it wasn't carried by any local cable providers. Alas the network has really gone downhill since then. They used to have regularly scheduled programming, now it's just filler with mini-marathons of random episodes from the same handful of series.
The Sci-fi movies are usually crap, but many are fun b-movie slock. I also like the mini-series Tin Man a lot more than I thought I would.
Funny how 99.999% of sciffy "original movies" are always craptacular yet their mini-series manage to almost be not entirely crap. Even the movies they pick-up as "sci-fi premieres" tend to be pretty bad, and usually not sci-fi but horror.
