This Sci-Fi Fan Is Done With SyFy

Facebooktwitterredditmail

The quality of shows on the network known as SyFy had been in a long slow death spiral since Battlestar Galatica and Stargate ended. Sure there were fun gems like Eureka, Warehouse 13 and Sanctuary but Haven was actually painful for me to watch and Helix was Ronald D Moore finally hanging himself with darkness. I was about done with the network at that point. I mean it didn’t even have “Sci-Fi” in it’s name anymore. SyFy is such a poor shadow of what I desired the network to be in name alone. It wasn’t science fiction. It was…..I actually have no idea what “Fy” stands for. Nor do I care at this point

 

I have hoped that with the few new interesting titles that “SyFy” had turned the corner. 12 Monkeys was an unexpectedly phenomenal series. And I greatly enjoyed the Firefly-esk of Defiance enough to do the podcast Voices Of Defiance on the show. Continuum was also a great series to watch. But the cracks were showing with the disappointment of Blood and Chrome. Then the network cleared it’s slate of Defiance and Continuum only to throw it’s might into the likes of Ascension, Dark Matter, Killjoys and Expanse.

 

It’s obvious now that “SyFy” is searching for its Walking Dead or Game Of Thrones. Both of these are series that should have originated on “SyFy” but other networks came out with the hit shows. SyFy should be hitting it out of the park with some of these shows. They are at least as good as the CW-based DC Comic book shows known in their fandoms are the “Berlanti-verse.” So I’m apt to blame network mis-management. “SyFy” has never has success with marketing or promotion with science fiction since Battlestar Galactica and neither has “SyFy’s” parent network of NBC. It’s like watching the Cleveland Browns of television. You know they’ll never win due to poor management and terrible coaching.

 

So with today’s announcement of the cancellation of Dark Matter I’m also announcing that I’ll be stepping down from any new “SyFy” show. Once The Expanse and 12 Monkeys are over so will be my ability to find “SyFy” with my remote. Because even with a new show I know the network will only disappoint me and not continue the series. And life’s too short to be disappointed one more time. So long “SyFy,” you had so much unrealized potential.
