After seeing three hours of Stargate Universe, I’m very impressed.  According to Wikipedia, the “industry” (whoever they are) has dubbed Stargate Universe as “dark and edgy”, a sentiment I would agree with.  It’s a solid show and I’ll continue to watch. So far I’ve only seen the pilot and the first episode.  After seeing just […]

And in Other Idiotic News… Sci-Fi Channel is changing their name to Syfy

The Sci-Fi Channel is changing their name to “Syfy” on July 7.  Yeah, I know.  WTF?!?! Apparently they think the name “Syfy” is cooler, much more cutting-edge, and much hipper.  Essentially they believe it’s more marketable.  According to one source, Sci-Fi Channel has been attempting to distance themselves from the term “Science Fiction” for years […]
