So, What is the Sci Fi Network Doin’ Right, anyway? – Part 3 “The Syndications”

This is part 3 of a 3 part series about what’s going on in the Sci Fi Network, what’s working, what isn’t and what’s making me flip to The Golf Channel.

First, a sidebar. SFN has become a home for many canceled sci fi network shows. Some are good, some are bad and some are just cringingly ugly.

The Noobs:
The 4400
Currently First Run episodes of Season 4 of this amazing series are running on USA Network. When they end they usually get a repeat run on SFN a few months later. What an awesome idea this was!!!. This is a real sleeper favorite of mine. MY hope is for a SFN Marathon, running all 4 seasons sometime soon.

Star Trek Enterprise
The bastard son of the Star Trek franchise, this series got no respect from its creators, writers network or reviewers and for the most part it was undeserved.. A more than adequate cast, some sketchy directing and writing in the first 2 seasons. Just when it got a complete overhaul and had a new executive producer Manny Cota who had a vision., quality began to rise and UPN cut its legs off. The final episode is a travesty, that should be buried and burned. As the commercial goes,,,,,,try it, you might like it.

The Golden Oldies:
The Outer Limits/ The Twilight Zone
Thousands of millions of words have been written about these series……..not a damn thing I can add of substance to it..

The X-Files
See my earlier blog entry on Torchwood (he he he)

The OH MY GOD! Why is that still on?:
Ripley’s Believe It Or Not
Oh god noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Wolf Lake
Lou Diamond Phillips La La La La La La Bomba
Um, so there’s like these kids who are like the hybred offspring of aliems and huemans, and they are all pouty and go to high school. OH, I get it, Andromeda 90210
Night Stalker
NOT The Darren McGavin one, nuff said
The Incredible Hulk
“….You wont like me when I’m syndicated”

So there it is, the good, the bad and the syndicated. Let me know what ya think.

For Now,
