yeah, but when the sci-fi channel plays pure horror movies with sci-fi it's like my classical music station playing new age music or what have you. There's even a seperate station for modern music like there should be for horror and fantasy. I'm not suggesting classifying Star Wars as a fantasy or anything. The writers should write sci-fi for the sci-fi channel, no?
How do you classify "pure horror"? Besides Syfy have always shown horror, fantasy, sci-fi and a variety of stuff. Besides sci-fi isn't some "pure" genre either. I mean look at something like Bones, it's all played straight but that even has sci-fi elements with the hologram systems and speculative ideas on how things can be applied to investigations. Same for CSI and the like.
One more anal-probing gyro-pyro levitating ecoplasm alien anti-matter story and I'm going to take out my gun and shoot somebody.
