Is It Possible That The SyFy Channel is Run By People With Psychological Problems?
We've all seen the movie "Scrooged", right? It isn't just a modern retelling of Ebeneezer Scrooge, it's also the story of a television executive (Frank Cross) with a screw loose putting outrageous television shows on the air. And the television shows are outrageous because Frank Cross has psychological problems. Such television shows as "The Night The Reindeer Died" - starring Lee Majors....."Bob Goulet's Old Fashioned Cajun Christmas"......"Father Loves Beaver"....and Frank's "Scrooge" promo showcasing freeway killings, acid rain, heroin addiction and terrorism.....are the sorts of insane television shows that Frank Cross conceived and put on the air.
You wouldn't have to venture very far away from the IBC Network as managed by Frank Cross to confront the insanity of the SyFy Channel as managed by Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern. Frank Cross would feel right at home at the SyFy Channel (working side by side with Hammer, Howe, and Stern) putting such crap on the air as "Marcel's Quantum Kitchen"...."WWF Wrestling"...."Fact or Faked"...and a ghost hunting show starring three roto-rooter / plumbers called "Ghost Hunters."
The SyFy Channel is the IBC Network of the 21st Century.
If you ran the programming ideas of Frank Cross passed Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern...their reactions would be ones of serious consideration. Slaughtering reindeer with rapid machine gun fire during a Christmas Eve visit to the North Pole would be right up the SyFy Channel's alley. Because its the same type of programming garbage perfectly suited for the SyFy Channel's "WWF Wrestling" demographic. "Bob Goulet's Old Fashioned Cajun Christmas" would tie right in with the SyFy Channel's weekly monster movie demographic (Bob Goulet getting eaten by a lurking crocodile.) "Father Loves Beaver" would tie right in with some of the trashy movies the SyFy Channel mines from the USA Network film vaults.
I have a feeling that if the character of Frank Cross were a real person, he would score about the same on a Rorschach Test as Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern would.
