    I think "dave" served its purpose. Who didn't go "Huh? A TV Channel called Dave?"

    Syfy does have fail written all over it. Any channel that shows star trek etc. is always going to seem geeky. . . having said that, I do tune in occasionally to watch Quantum Leap!

    The Sci-Fi channel (at least in the UK anyway) is bollocks and always has been. When I first got it (in the mid nineties) I was expecting it to show loads of quality old sci-fi but all I've ever seen on it is utter tripe. Its probably better in the US...

    Probably not... then again we don't get Sci-Fi in Canada so can't be sure.

    From what I've seen it is... There have been a few series on in Sci-Fi US that haven't been on Sci-Fi UK...

    I've pretty much given up on TV (broadcast, cable, whatever). I just buy or rent the TV show/film I want to watch and do my own programming. Much more satisfying.

    Agreed that series rocked and would have been the best cliff hanger if they brought it back.

    and i would love to see how they got out of it.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAZxGIkTkMY

    Was that clip before or after this mini series? i got a feeling I haven't seen this mini series.

    [update] I think its Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars i haven't seen

    Did they even test this idea out on viewers before deciding to make the change. Aren't there more important things for these TV execs to be doing besides trying to come up with a different name for a business that doesn't need a new name?

    It could be worse someone could accidently slip in a t and call it "Stiffy" :twisted:

    If they changed SyFy to TyFy, it's almost Tie Fighter (yeah, I know...lame).

    Looks Welsh to me. Despite being Welsh and speaking the lingo - that's not a good thing.

    I can live with that. At least it's a Star Wars reference.
