Has The Economy Hit The SyFy Channel Yet? Comcast May Want To Pull The SyFy Channel Out Of Vancouver
I wonder if Comcast subscribes to the philosophy that..."all good things must come to an end." Certainly in the case of Bonnie Hammer's decade old....underwhelming...television operation in Vancouver...these may be words worth implementing. Comcast has every right in the world to begin doing some number crunching since they own over 50% of the SyFy Channel...and why shouldn't they begin that number crunching by shutting down the SyFy Channel's television program manufacturing racket in Vancouver? Where such television gems as "Marcel's Quantum Kitchen"...."Fact or Faked?"....."WWF Wrestling"...."Saturday Night Monster Movies"....and "Scare Tactics"....are put on film for some God unknown reason.
Does Comcast want to save money? They can begin by shutting down (entirely) this fruitless television endeavor in Vancouver. Television programming no one wants to see and has never wanted to see..(Ronald D. Moore's sham take on "Battlestar Galactica", "Caprica", and "Blood & Chrome.")
A media corporation never went broke underestimating the unpopularity of the television programming one of its subsidiaries makes....such as the SyFy Channel. Comcast should take this as a hint and admit to themselves what they unfortunately now own in the form of the SyFy Channel, and the kind of schlock the SyFy Channel routinely manufactures. The SyFy Channel has blown an awful lot of money in Vancouver during the past decade making television programming no one wants to see...including their embarrassing take on "Flash Gordon" and that incoherent mess called "Tin Man."
Sometimes...in order for bad television programming to cease being made...the plug has to be pulled on the entire operation by the higher ups...because the middle ups such as Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern simply don't know when to quit. They will have to be told when to quit...by Comcast. This is the only way...this virus of bad taste known as the SyFy Channel will cease to exist.
