Fringe on the Science channel

A heads up for those who have the Science channel on cable.
They will be rerunning Fringe from the beginning.
They are running the Pilot and second episodes on Tuesday evening 11/20.
Then starting on Friday morning they are running the first half of season 1, with the second half starting on Saturday morning.
Next Tuesday 11/27, they will show the first three episodes of season 2.

Here's a link to the Fringe page on the Science channel's website
http://science.discovery.com/tv-shows/fringe

and the schedule

Re: Fringe on the Science channel

I guess there not enough actual science in the world for a whole day's programming on a channel dedicated to science. And I guess there's too much crap movies and wrestling for the SyFy channel to run it.

There's something fundamentally wrong with cable TV.

Wrestling on SyFy? Wow, things have changed since I last went to America (last time I watched that channel) 5 years ago... a lot.

Re: Fringe on the Science channel

I am not sure what prompted The Science Channel to acquire the rerun rights to sci-fi series. They don't have a ton of new, original programming (I think they largely get by with airing "How Its Made" marathons, old science-related shows from Discovery's library, and then a sprinkling of new content like "Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman"). Perhaps the acquisition cost was relatively low, and they figured they'd take a gamble and see how the ratings would do? "Firefly" was obviously a success for them, hence their recently-aired 10th anniversary special and their sponsorship/presence at Comic-Con to promote the series. So I guess they are going to push forward with more sci-fi. "Fringe" starts this week, and there are more shows coming up (though I am not sure if they have been announced).

Re: Fringe on the Science channel

The History Channel, now just "History" used to be known for Nazi's and UFOs, and sometimes the two crossed over. The channel was decent for awhile. Pawn Stars (Which I do love) changed all of that. However it still shows some historical things.

But year i have given up on cable TV channels. Might as well just use numbers instead of names, because they are all disregarding their names.

Re: Fringe on the Science channel

Maybe The Science Channel will rebrand itself as The Science and Fiction Channel. They could start doing original science fiction and give SyFy some competition. Would be a win-win for the fans.

Re: Fringe on the Science channel

Saw a promo on Science last night indicating that they'll be showing a LOT of sci fi show reruns - basically everything that's been of Fox in the last few years like Terra Nova and Dollhouse. Sigh.

Yes, this would be great. The channel has already shown they have pretty good taste in Sci Fi with the acquisitions of Fringe and Firefly, two of the best Sci Fi shows of their respective times.

Maybe they'll even commission their own show where they have a young, innovative scientist who conducts an experiment with his own ship and finds himself thrown through the galaxy by a wormhole where he meets a strange group of aliens that include some escaped prisoners and a really hot, raven haired woman who he eventually falls for. Amazing adventures and hilarity ensue.







Hey, I can hope can't I?

The season 1 marathon this Friday and Saturday will have commentary by Dr. Michio Kaku. He's a theoretical physicist from NYU.

^^ And he used to have his own show about the science of Science Fiction. He's pretty cool.

The Analog: Science Fiction/Science Fact Channel.

I do wish that channels would actually show what they are supposed to, though. I think the only channels that I watch that actually live up to their mission statements are TCM and MeTV.
