...and dumb it down with unfunny comedy & stuff like "which show has the hottest alien babes - discuss?"

Didn't they already do this once back in when the network was new? Sci-Fi Buzz and there was another one that was a sci-fi version of a round table show.

Has SyFy gotten that bad? I dropped the channel after the end of BSG. I knew they were shifting demographics, but it sounds like lately they're really went in the shitter.

I think I saw some of that one night. Or something close to it on Sci-Fi. I MST3K the fuck out of that show, pissed off the wife who was getting into the who spiel.

Show: "I feel a cold spot in the room, as if all the life has left this place..."

Me: "Close the window you daft bitch!...hey! Why'd you throw that at me, I'm just telling the truth!"

Ace of Cakes would almost work on Sci-Fi Channel, they're all laid-back stoner geeks and have made cakes of Stormtrooper helmets, Slave 1, and WoW monsters.
