Well both parties are well known for their grand ambitions and frankly THAT is what is missing in SF TV these days.
So, I'll take a (likely) interesting grand mess over another safe, cookie-cutter carbon-copy SyFy product any day of the week.
All of them try to play in a bigger, more layered sandbox than a good proportion of other film/TV producers out there these days, so I feel there is hope for some real imagination and scope (either structurally or philosophically).
In fact, the only person I would be more interested making an SF TV show right now is Chris Nolan. So although the W's and JMS have their whopping flaws, count me interested.
