Absolutely F, F, F SyFy and the bloated, roided up WWE wrestler that they rode in on. I am absolutely done with that goddam "network" for fucking good. Just like Fox, never again will I watch any Sf shows on your bullshit network.

Tell us how you really feel!

Makes me glad I don't even have Syfy.

That's sad, I really enjoyed SG:U. It was the only SG since the 1st movie that I dug. Christ even Atlantis got 5 seasons. :roll:
Look, I'm not much good at big speeches, and I know I haven't always been an easy guy to get on with, and I know, that given the choice, I wouldn't have chosen you as friends, but I just want to say, that over the years, I have come to regard you as people I met.

I was completely UNinterested in Atlantis when it started, but ended up watching a lot of it just because there'd be nothing else on. The one episode of Universe I've seen, while back this year, looked much, much better.

Oh well. :roll:

A few of those mid-season episodes in season 1 (like 11-15 or so) were some of the best SF I've seen on TV yet. Were comperable IMHO with the BSG episodes "33" and "Flesh and Bone."

I'm a season 2 BSG guy personally, I've got my girlfriend watching the whole show from start to finish with me right now, she actually is enjoying it which is surprising.

Season 1 has really good moments, but moments of utter garbage too (like when Starbuck figures out how to fly that cylon fighter... total crap). Don't get me wrong, it was a hell of a season though. Season 2 is just harder to watch/deal with, sticks with you more somehow.
