The Underwhelming And Hardly Original Trajectory of The SyFy Channel
SyFy Channel's latest claim to shame is broadcasting "Dawn of the Dead" tonight. Not one of the original "Dead" movies directed by George Romero mind you...but one of those second rate zombie knock-off movies littering our pop culture for decades.
From what I can see of SyFy Channel's contributions to Halloween 2011, is that it will be contributions underwhelming and boring in content...devoid of any originality...consisting of cheap-ass horror movies released earlier on cheap-ass DVD.
I have a name change suggestion for the SyFy Channel. "The Cheap Ass Horror Channel." Hey!! You may not be able to make an acronym out of it...but it would be a brutally blunt assessment of what they really are.
What SyFy Channel routinely gets excited about...causes just about everybody to roll their eyes at. There simply hasn't been and never will be anything to get excited about on the SyFy Channel. It is a hollow cable channel run by corporate drones (Bonnie Hammer, David Howe, and Mark Stern) who have about as much collective talent inside of them to excite the masses of television viewers as would a marathon of infomercials.
So..."Dawn of The Dead" is being broadcast tonight on the SyFy Channel. So what. Who cares. It's a cheap knock-off having been available on DVD since 2004. So...Where is the excitement to be found in the broadcast of this movie tonight on SyFy Channel?
SyFy Channel has never learned that there is no excitement to be found in the repackaging of garbage that wasn't compelling in the first place.
SyFy Channel needs a fresh infusion of life and Bonnie Hammer...David Howe...and Mark Stern...ain't it.
