Honestly, sci-fi/syfy lost my viewership a long long time ago, but their statements pretty much burned the bridge for me. If anyone here is a self-respecting science fiction fan, I would hope they would not patronise anything done by syfy.
ROFL, I was wondering why they made that silly change... Great, way to both alienate your fanbase AND look even sillier to the general population. Is a lobotomy required to get a management position in the entertainment industry?
