FirstNationalBastard: Is there a niche network left that hasn't?

Maybe Turner Classic Movies. I mean, TCM still airs commercial free classic movies. No reality shows, no original scripted dramas, just old movies.

Everything else?

TV Land and Nick at Nite don't air classic TV anymore.


I would nominate MeTV as another niche channel. They air classic Hawaii 5-0 episodes as well as classic Star Trek, but the other shows like Rockford Files and Gunsmoke, I never got into. They ought to pick up Magnum P.I. They also have a lot of downtime in the form of 30 minute infomercials.

Antenna TV also seems to be doing the niche classic TV thing. The only thing I watch on that channel is Dragnet, but at least it's a 24 hour channel.

Confabulat: The 90s were pretty cool, back when the History Channel showed history, the Sci-Fi Channel showed sci-fi, Court TV showed court on TV, and the Weather Channel showed the weather.

Such simple times.


Now, it's nothing but who-can-rape-the-planet-fastest "reality" shows.

/Go back further, to the 80s, and you'll find MTV actually played music... Commercial-free, even!

In my area, we get those channels over broadcast TV. It's a good place to see television shows that we missed in the 60s-80s.

Can they go back in time and stop this show from being created?
[www.buysellcommunity.com image 400x250]


ha! As it stands, Syfy only has two shows I watch; the US version of Being Human (which I think is much better than the original BBC series), and Alphas. That new Lost Girl show is just terrible. To point out just one of its many flaws, why make the fey genetic mutants? Why not just say, "They're fairies and they're friggin magical"?

gadian: ...I liked Seven Days.

I don't understand why there isn't a large enough market to justify a pure sci-fi network. In our house growing up, the tv was either stuck on the Hitler channel (history channel) or Sci-fi with an occasional hiatus to the local NBC station for Star Trek. We can't have been that unique.

I liked the old, really campy sci-fi reruns next to the newer sci-fi shows from around the world. They would show the original Battle Star, then an episode of the original Star Trek followed by an episode of Dr. Who and then Farscape & Stargate. What's not to love about that? Its easy and simple. Old & new. No original / reality crap.


The philosophy that lead to the creation of channels like sci-fi and comedy central back in the 90s -that a channel didn't need to compete for the bulk of the viewing public and could be successful catering to a niche one- doesn't really hold sway in management circles these days (sort of ironic when you consider the focus on niche website advertising). What was done to Sci-Fi is the same sort of "profit maximization", "opportunity cost" bs that has farked up US business culture generally over the last few decades.

If you aren't appealing to a general audience, then you'll get fewer viewers, and the viewers you're not getting are a "loss". Therefore all channels have to produce the same content as they compete for the same, massive audience, and to be successful, need to score well on the same, flawed, ratings system. Under this model, networks don't distinguish themselves with programs, but with the brand, the life-style, they're selling, which is why Sci-Fi is spending so much revenue on all these absurd rebranding campaigns as well.

Wow someone else remembers that show. It was actually not that bad. Actually, the last season was pretty good.

Great. We'll get 6 episodes of something that doesn't get interesting until episode 5, then nothing for a year. Give me a full season of an actual scripted sci-fi show and we'll talk. Until then you're dead to me SyFy.

Writers: Ethan Reiff and Cyrus Voris (Kung Fu Panda, Sleeper Cell). A production of The Jim Henson Company and Universal Cable Productions.


This sounds similar to S.M. Stirling's Emberverse series of novels, but with more magic. I'd love to see a series based on that, BTW.

Also, wrestling has no place on SyFy. Don't care if it's two hours, or two minutes.

There really isn't a bad guy in SG right now.

The Luciant Alliance (or whatever it was called) is only so-so and really can't directly threaten Earth with Atlantis sitting there. It is only a matter of time before the SGC and the J'fa get to them. The Wraith are locked in a massive civil war still and won't recover from it for hundreds of years, not to mention that they don't have intergalactic travel. The followers of the Ori know they were misled and are in another galaxy too.

Only one I see as a possibility are the rogue Asgard in Pegasus, but they still haven't solved the cloning problem yet.

Syfy needs to launch a "Syfy Classics" channel. The lineup (as it SHOULD be):

midnight-2AM: 2 back to back Dr Who episodes.
2am - 5am: Old (pre-1990) campy sci-fi movie. Stuff like Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind, the original Day the Earth Stood Still, etc.
5am - 6am: Lost in Space episode
6am - 8am: Two sci-fi themed anime episodes. Stuff like Robotech, Voltron, Escaflowne, Neon Genesis Evangelion, etc.
8am - 9am: Farscape
9am - 10am: Seaquest DSV
10am - 11am: Babylon 5
11am - noon: Battlestar Galactica
noon-5pm: An episode each of Star Trek: Enterprise, Original Series, Next Generation, DS9, and Voyager
5pm-7pm: An episode each of Stargate SG1, and Atlantis/Universe (since there's more SG1 to work with, alternate Atlantis/Universe in the other slot)
8pm - 11pm: A newer sci-fi movie. Best to do in a series (eg. "All 4 Terminator movies, in four consecutive nights")
11pm-12pm: Documentaries about the movie you just saw. Effectively, the DVD extras. For us super geeks.

This frees up Syfy to have a lineup like this:
* Sanctuary
* Eureka
* A new Star Trek show. Give me the Enterprise-J from Daniels' time (31st century) in Enterprise.
* A new Stargate show (SG: Alpha Site?)
* Purchase the rights to Sarah Connor Chronicles, make new episodes
* Newer anime (perhaps as a Syfy exclusive. They're nice and low budget)
* Joss Whedon's Fluffy the Android Slayer (or, whatever sci-fi show he wants to do to)
* A few new original sci-fi properties (shows... screw those crappy movies they crank out)
* At least one new show based on a book series. The worlds of Anne McCaffrey could be a good starting point.
* ASSASSIN'S CREED: THE SERIES (with about 50/50 attention paid to the present-day Assassins and the guy in the Animus)

As I pointed out, they are not all dead, just the nice ones.

-first episode the kidnap O'Neil
-first season involves finding him
-second season: they found him and got him back, but found out the enemy is planning a full invasion now that they have cloning fixed and have been able to take all of their citizens out of computer storage
-- J'Fa nation enters a period of civil war
-- L. Alliance caused the war to try and take power
-- Galaxy is not ready for the coming invasion!

FuryOfFirestorm: Oh boy! Another SyFy show not about sci-fi! I bet it'll be called "Ghost Wrestlers" or "Crap That Even Spike TV Passed On".

I swear to FSM, if Alphas gets canned to make room for more shows about dumbasses with cameras chasing shadows, I will punch the honchos at SyFy in the trachea.


I am enjoying the last season of Eureka, I love Warehouse 13, Alphas, and Haven. I'm starting to pick up on Lost Girl. I lived for all the shows they had in the past, but now those are the only shows on there I will watch. But the decision to cancel a show after just one season like the Dresden Files really pissed me off. At least USA tries for two seasons. And man have they picked up the programming a lot since their early days of crap and La Femme Nikita.
 
2012-04-26 09:24:23 AM
Haven bored me to death. Got to episode 3 and gave up.
I think I made it to episode 4 of Lost Girl before giving up on that too.
Being Human, episode 4 as well.
Eureka was entertaining, but I stopped watching during the time travel plotline. Just got too silly.

So yeah, I literally do not even watch that channel anymore.
 
2012-04-26 09:29:10 AM

MithrandirBooga: Being Human, episode 4 as well.


I honestly don't see how people can like that show. I watched the English version and it was a piece of crap. Everyone talks like they're reading plot summaries to each other.
 
2012-04-26 09:29:19 AM
Oh right.

Sanctuary, gave up after 2 seasons.
Warehouse 13, gave up after the first season.

Never even bothered with any of the other shows.

I was telling a younger friend that when I was growing up I would watch MTV and they asked what show I watched and I told them that music dominated that channel until the the mid 90s or so. I have so many good memories of MTV.

\no, I don't live there. I was just visiting for a day recently

I actually don't know anyone personally who owns satellite or cable anymore. It's all accessible on the Internet. Why pay money for free (other than Internet access charges)?


Live sports. That's the only reason to have cable. Yeah I know you can sometimes find a live feed. But that can be iffy like syfy.
 
2012-04-26 09:31:14 AM

The Why Not Guy: None of those new shows looked more than vaguely interesting.

As other posters have noted, if the channel ran a mix of old-school sci-fi movies and television along with a few new series and a couple (not 14, but a couple) reality shows, it would be one of the top cable channels. Also, I know it's expensive for a cable channel to make movies with state of the art special effects and talent. I would rather see one really well-done original movie per month than the constant barrage of interchangeable monster movies with shiatty CGI.

The audience is here. The product is not.


Bwhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah!

The audience is small the product sucks. Syfy was exactly what you described and they cornered the geek sci-fi market, but that market is small and the pressure to keep growing the numbers forced them into what they show today. Ghost punters, Monster finders, Alien trackers, and Wrestling all get better ratings then Stargate or Farscape.

And I wonder how much Gawker pays Fark to ensure that every other link is a Gawker one.

And no, this screen shot isn't from one rare day in which all the links happened to be Gawker ones. That's a screenshot I took of the Geek tab just now.

Here's one from a few days ago:

sites.google.com

I'm getting annoyed with Fark's fellating of Gawker lately. It's not like they come up with the content, either. Gawker is a glorified blog; their 'articles' are typically two paragraph descriptions/rewrites of something they found somewhere on the 'net.

I prefer Fark due to the comment structure (I hate nested comments), but seriously, why wouldn't users just skip Fark and go straight to Gawker if all they wanted to read were regurgitated blog posts twenty times a day?

BSG had a big audience. The reason is, if you have a good show usually people will watch it. But they started making more schlocky crap like Ice Spiders and nobody wanted to watch that garbage. Then they started putting a bunch of non-scifi and crap reality show garbage on - because they got the Lifetime channel's old CEO who literally said she hated scifi - and she turned off even their core audience too.

But put on a good enough show and people will usually watch.

From this list I'm intrigued by the idea of Defiance, and also of course want to see what they do with Booster Gold.

My prediction, based on Syfy's track record even back in the day when had awesome shows:
It will start good and then turn retarded.
And the series final, which will happen 2-3 seasons too soon, will suck beyond belief and piss off everyone.

Syfy has a 15 year track record proving they can NOT end a series well.
 
2012-04-26 10:12:55 AM
I don't care what y'all say. When SciFi creates its own scifi drama I will watch and enjoy. About the only shows that they develop that I cannot watch is the reality stuff, BBC rips and the stuff like Lost Girl and Mirlin. Give me space ships, aliens or weird tech and I will watch it.
 
2012-04-26 10:26:24 AM

OtherLittleGuy: And RTV. They were actually doing Original BSG and Buck Rogers for a while.


I used to have RTV, and the channel it was on was replaced with MeTV (which at the time was no big deal to me since my favorite shows Quincy and Magnum P.I. had already been removed). For some reason I had thought RTV was renamed MeTV.

FirstNationalBastard: Oh, and let me say it before people come in biatching...

Siffy has two hours of wrestling per week.

That's it. Two hours.

While I agree that WWE doesn't belong on a Sci-Fi channel, well, Siffy isn't a sci-fi channel anymore. Plus, what is two hours per week, with no replays, compared to the hours upon hours of ghost shows and car building shows and reality shows they have planned?

So don't lump wrestling in with the things ruining Siffy. There are dozens of hours of programming on siffy that are worse than Smackdown.


Nice try, but WWE RAW has no right or business being on a network meant for SF, period. SF fans may be fanboys, but they still higher up on the evolutionary scale to the average wrasslin' watching Jethro.

You may as well have reruns of HEE HAW on there.
