Back in the day, SciFi had some of the old TV shows which I don't mind looking at now and again (like "Lost In Space"). 
Now... What the SyFy channel should be called?? 
Sh!tFits. 

Similar to the early programming on Space in Canada. You could watch classic sci-fi movies, original Trek, and some other stuff. Then it kind of moved away from that and into original programming and new shows. But it never went into cheesy exploitation the way SyFy did. I miss what the channel started as, but it's still pretty decent. Then again, I do get a kick out of SyFy's cheesy exploitation too.

Ah, yeah.
In the old days, SciFi Buzz was a good way to keep up with whats new in the genre. And Mike jerrick seemed to understand what his show was about.
Now, it's just the cheap stuff sold to the highest bidder.
I can't afford cable, and even I know the phrase 'SyFy Original Movie' means Low Budget Crap only good for riffing.
Which is at least something.

Sy-Fy Channel, eat my galaxy spanning shorts...

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

I loved Sci-Fi Buzz and Trailer Park.  Thumbup  I used to like Space's news shows too  (like Hypaspace) but I don't care for "Innerspace" today. I preferred these channels when they seemed be run by geeks for geeks. Now it's like they just what to be popular with the trendy popular crowd.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
