Does Syfy Really Love Sci-Fi?

brumgrunt writes “Has Syfy fallen out with science fiction altogether? A look at its latest scheduling shows that it’s further away from its roots than ever. ‘There’s still a lot of the older sci-fi content on the airwaves, but it’s slowly being phased out, and forget about original programming. After all, this is the programming crew who ruined Caprica by stuffing it into the Friday night death slot and splitting the season into two parts. These are the geniuses who killed off Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe. These are the people who wrecked Farscape, one of the most inventive and fun sci-fi shows to ever be on television. They also ended Mystery Science Theater 3000, only the greatest show ever invented by robots in space.’ Is this now as good as it gets?”
