I wouldn't expect to see HDTV from Sci-fi anytime soon, given how conservative they are with money. In the short-to-intermediate term, I think we're more likely to see a 16:9 SD channel from them. But content like Stargate SG-1 and the Taken miniseries would sure be nice to have in HD.

bfdtv.... Your kidding, ie: SciFi paid some excessive amount to replay the already worn out X-Files (it has replayed on FOX, FX, plus anyone really into it has it on DVD, or tape, as you might know), no wonder, they kill off their good original shows to broadcast mostly what I would not call scifi.


The best thing NBC (GE) can do with this situation is to REPLACE the management at SciFi ASAP, and stop trying to make it something is was not in the original idea!


FWIW and only IMHO.... yours may vary......


Take care.... as for SciFi HD, interesting idea, but NOT one to pay for.....the way it is now.

i totally agree!!! try sending an e-mail and wait for a response, like two years later. (joke) i wish HBO or showtime would start up a sci-fi channel so we could kick sci-fi to the curb. IMHO, i think they need to shake up management and get someone to beat up the bean counters. it comes down to money, i know but still. the perfect media for hd is sci-fi imo. hell they can't even do 5.1. when Stargate was on showtime it was awesome. it was in high def and in 5.1. sci-fi got it and it wasn't the same. although i haven't miss a single episode. well maybe someday they might get the hint... t.:mad:

While we're off topic...


Stargate has been better this season on Sci Fi; it's the only program they've got now that I watch -- they cancelled the rest. But I agree with most of you, I don't much care for what their management has done to the channel; a high percentage of their content as little or nothing to do with sci-fi.

Any management who thinks 'Scare Tactics' belongs on the Sci-Fi channel has obviously lost all touch with the sci-fi world. Say what you want about the remake of 'Galatica', but it is a million times more appropriate than 'Scare Tactics'.


At least I just saw a commercial for the new 'Beyond ReAnimator' movie and it looks promising. Of course, what I want is the unrated DVD version. The original R-rated 'ReAnimator' was one of the most fun, whacked out movies of all time.

P.S. To be on topic a little. I agree, it will be years before the Sci-Fi channel goes HD. I think we would do better to beg Marc Cuban for a once a week Sci-Fi night on HD. There must be a lot of old 'film-based' sci-fi shows that only lasted a year that he could get for cheap. Maybe we should work up a suggestion list for him!

Please put a QUESTION MARK when posting topics like this.


"Sci-Fi HD" with a thumbs up looks by all appearances to be an announcement that Sci-Fi will be in HD in the near future!


"Sci-Fi HD?" is better.

I look forward to Galactica. I've read the script and I like it a lot. Plus, the folks doing the effects just won an Emmy for their work on Firefly. It has the potential to be WAY better than the original. The original just doesn't hold up for me anymore. That whole disco casino in the original pilot just reeks of cheese when viewed today.


Yeah, some people don't like the change to Starbuck or the Cylons, but I think it all works great. And it is a much darker tone, which really makes sense when you think about the fact that most of the human race is supposed to have been wiped out.

It's not like the original Galactica was a work of art or something.


I usually wait for Sci-Fi shows to hit DVD as it's one of my worst analog cable channels by far. For that reason alone I'd be thrilled if it just went "digital".

Agree. It's easy. Edit post. Basic common courtesy.
