for the stuff they do have, it is somewhat incomplete - they didn't mention the letter writting campaign that brought ST:TOS back for a few more seasons, nor did they mention how Warner Brothers "lost" the original CGI files for Babylon 5 so they wouldn't have to rerender the CGI to 1.85:1.

that makes one wonder what else they left out, heh.

Oh yeah...I read through alot of that and it certainly makes the stations seem more like the big corrupt corporations that we all hate...heck, that's what it'd be.

They should just put all the sci-fi shows on the Sci-Fi Channel. It needs more good ones! :)

the sci fi channel cancelled their second highest rated science fiction show, farscape, much to the dismay of the fans, who in protest actually bought commercial time for save farscape commercials, heh. so that's already a black mark against them, imho.

second, they're only avialable on cable or satalite, so i would never be able to see that at home :lila:

Farscape sucked immensely! :p

However, if ALL Sci-Fi programming was required to be on the Sci-Fi Channel, then they wouldn't have to cancel shows that suck! :)

I don't watch the Sci-Fi Channel that much but I like Tales From the Crypt, Twilight Zone and Dark Shadows. There are some creepy good movies on there from time to time also!
