Decay of Stargate, Blood & Chrome, some more Syfy HATE, and yeah I’m MAD!

With the Stargate movies shelved indefinitely it seems we will not see any more Stargate for some generations…Sadly no fourth Stargate series. But I don’t think that means the end, it’ll probably be rebooted maybe in a decade or two. Does that mean I’m going to stop protesting? NO! The Syfy channel and MGM will continue to face repercussions for their poor executive decisions in the canceling of Stargate Atlantis and their non-support of the SG1 & SGA movies.

A while ago Syfy made another HUGE mistake. Despite much fan resistance they cancelled the Battlestar Galactica prequel, Caprica. Tsk, tsk, tsk. What a horrible decision. Does the Syfy channel even have any science fiction shows left on there channel besides reruns? Seems like all they air on Syfy these days are crappy monster movies and smackdown wrestling. Um. Seriously? Join the Save Caprica facebook page for more on this matter.

Now I hear they’re making another BSG prequel, Blood and Chrome? Pathetic. They can’t just ax these shows replace them like that. Frankly I myself will be boycotting the new show, why not? I’ve already been boycotting the Syfy channel since its worst decision ever in 2008 August 20, the cancellation of Stargate Atlantis.

The Syfy channel really needs to be taken down. I think its way too late in the game for it to be reformed. Especially since its rebranding from Scifi to Syfy also in 2008. Its almost like they purposely put non-science fiction shows and crappy movies on their channel…I don’t understand it. If they keep going in this destructive direction they are going to face consequences. I’ve already had my heart broken three times by their poor executive decisions:

1. the cancellation of Atlantis.

2. The permanent shelving of the Stargate movies

3. The cancellation of Caprica

Any much more of these horrendous decisions and Syfy will face much more than a simple multi-fandom uprising.

What do you think? How much longer do you think Syfy can keep this up? Let me know in the comments below!

P.S. IDK about you guys but don’t the Syfy executives look a little EVIL to you?

This is an article on the SyFy ‘branding’. Relative excerpt quoted:

Syfy’s Two-Pronged Rebrand Strategy
Plans big marketing push; buys up negative domain names

By Marisa Guthrie — Broadcasting & Cable, 6/22/2009 12:00:00 AM MT

NBC Universal’s Sci Fi is giving away the Internet to promote its July 7 rebrand to Syfy, but is also taking away a few choice domain names in the process. The cable outfit will promote its rebrand with a flurry of marketing initiatives, including giveaways of free wireless access at various locales in New York City (dubbed WyFy From Syfy, of course).

………….

Sci Fi executives, however, know there are still detractors in the network’s legendarily passionate demo. So they took pre-emptive measures, snapping up several negative domain names including SyfySucks.com. Some still got through the cracks, such as NoSyfy.com. That site inveighs against the network’s “wrestling and ghost hunting” programs and conveniently supplies Howe’s office phone and e-mail address.

Nevertheless, Howe says, “I haven’t had an e-mail for two months despite the fact that my name is very prominent in chat rooms and on message boards. When we cancelled Stargate Atlantis, I had upward of 150 e-mails a day for six months. So the fact that I’ve had fewer than 20 e-mails in four months says to me that people really do understand why we’re doing this.”

That’s bullshit and they know it. They’ve been blocking all emails SGA related, and changing their emails consistently since the cancellation.

WE MUST EMAIL HOWE!

SHOW HIM WE STAND BY OUR VIEWS

AND WE STILL WANT ATLANTIS BACK!

Atlantis in Despair/New banners

I know that the fight is drawing to end. It is unwise to think this battle will last forever. But still, let us hope, let us prolong, in this war. MGM, Scifi, and the producers have made a grave mistake. Let us hope they see the errors in their ways. We shall not give up merely because we are tired, nor shall we draw near to failure. It will be us that have the last laugh.

 

NEW BANNERS!

Here’s just a few, go to here to see more and get their BBcode!

We want SGA, not some bratty teens stuck in space!

I saw this the other day on Joe Mallozzi’s blog. This person’s comment has boosted my spirits. They’re words match my anger and fury against the cancellation so perfectly. AS I read this, I was encouraged to continue to fight, never to stop, never to slow down, but to continue as fast as I can, before it’s too late.

Mr Wright (are you? hehehe) 

I’m sure many Stargate fans are hoping to get some kind of reassurance that Universe will NOT be “90210 in Space”…can you tell us why you think that the audience demographic needs to be ‘lowered’, when the majority of sci-fi fans are in fact in the upper percentile of intelligence, including the younger ones who are already fans? By limiting the cast to under-25s (and believe me, reading those quicky synopses of their characters, they sound like a right bunch of snotnosed twats) do you really think that they will have the depth and experience, let alone the security clearances, to participate in the Stargate program?

If you can please give us a plausible reason why some stupid senator’s bimbo daughter would be a member of a top-secret military operation, I’m all ears.

thanks.

So, I’d like to encourage everyone to continue to comment on Joe’s blog. Gaining his attention is useful. We need to use all options available to us. And this is a fairly good one. As he does take questions too!
