So for those who won’t read it. The gist is that SciFi is now going to try to shed the geeky image by changing the name to “SyFy”
SyFy? What the f*ck is that?
Sci Fi is supposed to be SCIence FIction. Yes, it is geeky. Yes, it brings up memories of StarTrek, StarWars, and cheesey poof eating geeks in their parents basement.
But you know what. I’m one of those geeks. I’ve played Dungeons and Dragons. I’ve done online role playing games. Hell, I’ve done LIVE ACTION role playing games.
Growing up, I read science fiction novels about telapathic spaceships.
It made me think about the possiblities that are out there, and what we can achieve as humans.
Now, Science Fiction isn’t just about space creatures and such like that.
It is Steam Punk. It is exploration. It is so many other things that just geeky overweight guys in their parents basement.
Jules Verne was a Sci Fi dude.
So was HG Wells. I mean, come on.. a time machine? That is one of the classic Sci Fi fodder.
SyFy has no meaning to me.
I am not happy. the SciFi channel was one of the few channels that I still enjoyed watching things on. I guess now I’m gonna have to go over to Discovery Channel and tell “SyFy” where they can stick their “Sy”.
