Sciffy should rename itself Sturgeon's Law-- 90% of it is crap.
However, the other 10% includes some good stuff. The wrestling and paranormal shows belong on other channels, no doubt about it, but much of their original programming is good. Currently, Warehouse 13
, Being Human
and Lost Girl
are very good. Haven
is not very good, but it's entertaining. Merlin
is good, but I don't get to see it very often. In the past, Sanctuary
and the first two Stargates
were very good. Farscape
was good, though I didn't care for it. And, being a big fan of B-Movies, I always tape the Saturday night movie.
I do miss the classic shows-- that's what they should be running instead of the paranormal and wrestling shows. Sure they are available on DVD, but DVDs don't catch and hook casual viewers. MeTV does show a handful of genre shows, but I think the world needs a nostalgia channel devoted exclusively to creative programming.
