I gave up on Sci-Fi aka syfy when they cancelled Farscape.
A Name Change for The Sci-Fi Channel Adam Whitehead 2009
Haha, the word "syfy" has pretty bad connotations in Polish.
For example, if the SciFi Channel had done more due diligence before it rolled out its new name it would have discovered that, in most parts of the world, "syfy" is a slang term for syphilis.
David Isenberg: A Rose by any Other Name Would Smell Like a "New Humanitarian" David Isenberg 2010
IMO the last movie was a cash in and should of never been made the script was awful, they replaced the lead with an awful actress and it honestly felt like a "syfy" original movie.
Almost as wrong as the fact that they started spelling sci-fi: "syfy" to try and make science fiction more trendy and universally appealing.
Syfy Sacrilege 2009
Despite the fact that "syfy" sounds like the domain name you reluctantly choose if "scifi. com" is already taken, executives at the 16-year-old cable network enthused about the idea, saying it will open up all new vistas and possibilities.
Actually in spite of my sarcastic comments about the episode it was so totally cool and great I feel sorry for all the masses of people who can't yet watch it ---- but I'm sure it will be on the 'syfy' channel sooner or later, they are continuing to show 'Who' reruns there, they just did the one where Professor Yana finds out he's The Master and becomes the younger, cooler Master when he regenerates .......
Doctor Who: The End of Time part two.... nissa_amas_katoj 2009
I like my ponies to know more than one trick, personally. skippybkroo what we need is some more new episodes of venture bros. it seems like they did 4 new eps this season and now it's all reruns. but i agree w/the "if it sez 'cartoon network' then show some frakin 'cartoons" sect. it's like wrestling on sci-fi network. but now that it's "syfy" and i don't know what the frak that is, i guess it's ok.
"syfy" would keep the branding but not make people think they were just about science fiction.
"syfy" in Polish can also be used to mean the same thing it does in English-an abbreviation for science fiction.
