I wouldn't've minded if they'd just said, "o hai, SCI FI = SyFy from here on in", but no, they had to explain their rationale behind it.
Re: [via friendsfriends]
I think irrational is more like it. :p Sometimes rebranding is necessary, like when The Nashville Network started showing action films and CSI repeats it became Spike TV. But this seems for more confusing than sensical. And it's just another reason I'm glad BSG is ending.
What crack are they smoking over there???

And yeah, I am free after Friday. At least potentially. I am still debating whether or not to watch Caprica.

BTW, that icon is such perfection!!
I'll give Caprica a chance. I'm not that bitter. ;) But I really don't see myself becoming as invested in it as BSG. And Caprica seems part of their transition. On paper, the show seems as much soap as science fiction.
And that's another thing! They're contributing to the illiteracy in this country!
Well, I only skimmed the press release, but I didn't see the term "nerds" used.

How much did you know who get paid? I looked at his site and I love how he states the article was written by him, but it says "Source: New York Times" right underneath. :p
LOL, the first thing I thought of was SyFy portal and how Hinman must think he's extra awesome now, but I had no idea they paid him for it! Wow.
Are you part of the fan club too? ;) I refuse to use his name here. He apparently sits around looking for his name to pop up online. He came after me once when I dared question his spoiler reporting after he stated that he knew for a fact that Laura was going to die at the beginning of Season 4. We know how that turned out!
I hate the fact that his site, which is driven by reusing news from other sites and bad information he has gathered himself, has just made him a significant sum of money.
I've always hated that some mainstream entertainment sites site him as a relaibel source when fandom, which has generally come to revile him, knows his habits of 'reusing' (to out it politely) news or just making crap up. That anyone connected with BSG stopped talking to him long ago I feel is telling.
SyFy? That is just stupid.

But silly me did read the article until I got to this: "One big advantage of the name change, the executives say, is that Sci Fi is vague — so generic, in fact, that it could not be trademarked. Syfy, with its unusual spelling, can be, which is also why diapers are called Luvs . . ."
Why diapers are called Luvs? HEE! I had to stop there because of the giggling. ;-) How can I take something seriously after that? I don't know if the executives said that or the Times said that but it sure tickled me. :-)

Your posts are great for a midday giggle. Thanks for that. You are free by Friday (me too) but I hope you keep the posts coming. :-)
I saw the Luvs comment and cracked up.

Thanks. :) And, no, I won't be going anywhere. I still have plenty more BSG posts in me. After all, after 'The Plan' airs I'll need to do another rewatch. :) And I was just bouncing fic ideas off a friend this weekend.

Plus, I do have other interests. I'm just not as vocal about them. ;)
Heh. Maybe in honor of the change we can do posts replacing all the i's with y's.
Hee Hee.

Hey, did you watch the second ep of Castle? I did and again I liked it. I thought it was better than the first ep too
