OMG, seriously?!  
O_ô -> Syfy?!

You cannot be seriously. No. Way. How did I miss this epic, EPIC, failure?

You look like some weird children's build-thing gone horrible wrong.

Excuse me while I go screaming into my cushion. Which looks far more Sci-Fi-ish than your new logo.


Been trying to catch up with your postlings. You guys have some really busy lifes, that's for sure. ^^

I've been disenchanted with the SciFi channel for a while now, and this just pushed me to the point of totally losing interest. Epic, epic failure.

I was looking for new miniseries/films they have planned for the next year but got completely sidetracked by THAT.

If we take the logo as their new poster child, any hope I had for them is LOST. Soooo don't want to know what they have planned now...

And you weren't ensorcelled by MegaShark vs. Giant Ocotopus???

I know the new name and logo is, well quite horrible and stupid, but come on.....

Wait, there is actually a movie called that? I feel ashamed to admit it but I would actually watch it. =D
purple_shoes on August 25th, 2009 08:33 pm (UTC)
You should watch Jurassic Fight Club on the History channel! It has the same awesome with slightly more intelligence and less of the really, really bad acting.

(On the other hand, I probably would watch it too. You know, if there was nothing else on. *shifty eyes*)

Oh, oh, I saw the advertisement for it on their website and I'm really curious how it is - I bet the T-Rex would act better than any Giant Squid, ehm, Ocotopus. =D

(Yup, just to not be bored to death...)

The CGI looks, well, I have no words.

It looks so bad, it has to be good.
Mercy: [Madagascar] *grouphugs*mercscilla on August 29th, 2009 06:18 pm (UTC)

Then I HAVE to get my hands on it and laugh myself silly mocking the bad CGI. What a way to go!
purple_shoes on August 25th, 2009 08:31 pm (UTC)
Yeah, even if it weren't so stupid looking, just the change itself annoys me. Not that I have minded them showing fantasy stuff in the past (the genres are different but the lines between are sometimes hazy and I know there's overlap) but the stuff they show is just so... Ugh.

Of course, I currently have the same disenchantment with BBC America, another channel that seems to have no idea who their target audience is and what kind of programming would actually be good for them.

That, and once I really enjoyed having a SciFi channel. Not a SciFi/Fantasy/Horror/Wrestling channel. *grumps*

I took a closer look at the movies they made and most of them are just downright bad. In everything. Plot, characters, actors. The only good one they made was the Tin Man series.

Fantasy was never my favourite genre but if it is, like, 80/20 sci-fi/fantasy I can live with it and sometimes really enjoy watching it.

Here in Germany we have the same problems with one or two channel - they're throwing everyhing together and mess it really up. And keep showing cook shows and stuff like that which is so not my thing. I enjoy a good crime or sci-fi show - helps me to unwind from RL. ^^

Hee, thank god they haven't gotten to the Wrsetling part here yet... *huggles*

O_ô --> I think you already found the best expression for this. *lol*

Good to see you around again! :D

It's like my RL expression. *grins* Before I broke into a non-stopping giggle attack. =D

You mean the sponsored links thing? THat is kinda weird. I mean it's a TV station. They can't say they don't have enough money to pay for a web site!
Mercy: [Emoticon] spam!mercscilla on August 29th, 2009 06:41 pm (UTC)
Not only that but also the new way they write their name and logo. I can't help the feeling they didn't upgrade but downright downgraded.

I'm really not sure what you're commenting on.
Mercy: [10tihay] Patrick/Kat - go bymercscilla on August 29th, 2009 06:46 pm (UTC)
The new way they write their name and look of their logo. In my eyes it's not and upgrade.

LOL, yes where have you been? Hehe. The epic fail that is now SyFy.

Apparently still in that universe where everything saw FINE. =D
csiAngel: bsg laura absofrakkinlutelycsiangel on August 27th, 2009 06:19 pm (UTC)
I'd noticed 'SyFy' on a couple of things and wondered if they'd actually changed the name, or if it was just some nickname they'd adopted.

I'm with you. I don't think it was the best decision.
Mercy: [L&O SVU] Elliot/Olivia - smilemercscilla on August 29th, 2009 07:10 pm (UTC)
If it was just a nickname, I would laughed and give them points for being silly and amusing. But actually changing their name into it? No, it really was a bad decision.
