It's not often that someone on a message board performs a public service, but over on the official Sci-Fi Channel boards, a poster known only as "SavageMind" does that very thing with a post called "What has happened to the Sci-Fi Channel?"
I was raised on Sci-Fi and am a die hard fan of the channel. However I have seen so much ***** on the channel it makes me not want to watch it. B movie marathons eating up the weekends. Giant Crocs, Spiders, Mosquitos and Killer Yeti are not doing it for me anymore. I remember when you could see a Star Trek title on Sci-Fi.
Our friendly Savage continues:
Did the channel get in a tiff with paramount? How about Space 1999, Babylon 5, the original Battlestar Galactica, and some classic movies like Laserblast, The Day the Earth stood still, and Battle beyond the stars. C'mon let's bring it back to the way it started.
I miss the old days when I could tune into Space 1999 on a young SciFi Channel. Those were fun times.
[Y]eah The sci-fi channel is setting it's self up for a buy out. That's what I see here.
