Culture: This just makes our head hurt. The SciFi Channel goes “SyFy”

  • We love being sci-fi, and we’re still embracing that. But we’re more than just space and aliens and the future – the three things most people think of when they think of ‘sci fi.’
  • Dave Howe • President of the SciFi Channel, on its name change to SyFy – which is destined to annoy the crap out of a bunch of BSG and SG-1 fans. We’re not even SciFi fans and we’re annoyed by it. And it takes a lot to annoy us, as you might have been able to tell by the nature of our blog. • source

Culture: Yo Trekkies, this quote may excite you.

  • I would love to return to the spirit of the old series with the colours and attitude. I loved ‘Voyager’ and ‘Deep Space Nine,’ but they seem to have lost the ‘60s fun and I would love to take it back to its origin.
  • Bryan Fuller • Creator of the lamented “Pushing Daisies” and a former “Star Trek” writer, on his desire to create a new “Trek” TV series in the spirit of the original show. It’s a good year to be a Trekkie, by the way, thanks to J.J. Abrams, whose “Star Trek” movie hits theaters in May. • source
