      I love Syfy channel, a big FarScape fan. But there's so much more, Lost Girl, Defiance, Stargate, Face Off, Continuum and now finally METAL HURLANT CHRONICLES! It's a great network. They just need to drop all the fake wrestling, and it would be perfect. Great article!

      Battlestar Galactica was amazing, the plot and sub plots of the show was so well done, shame they don't make many scifi shows of this quality.

      I haven't really watched it since Battlestar Gallactica ended. I also miss Farscape.

      I think the series Firefly aired first on Syfy. Terrific, intelligent "space cowboy" episodes, that led to a feature film (that is pretty violent). I watched the whole series on Netflix but it's probably available on Amazon.

      I enjoyed Battlestar Gallactica as a kid, and so had to check out the new series. Not quite the same but still enjoyable.

      I'm embarrassed to admit how many really bad movies I watched on SyFy--usually waiting for one of the shows in your lens to start!

      The only part I don't like about SyFy is their name and how they went about changing their name. As much as I was sad to see Eureka go, I was pleased to see how the network arranged one more abbreviated season. In our household we have become addicted to watching "Face Off" on SyFy. This is a reality competition in which participants have to formulate make-up and special effects for science fiction. SquidAngel Blessings.
