I don’t get it. What happened to identity?
The Syfy Channel just made a deal to increase its wrestling programming by making Friday nights Smack Down night.
Yep. Dr. Who. Stargate Atlantis.
. Caprica. And Sweaty Men In Tights. Eureka
What gives these days?
I understood when a channel would branch out in a related way – like the History Channel making a historically-based movie; or Cartoon Network making a live action episodes of Ben Ten – a cartoon.
But they’re not even trying anymore.
Cartoon Network is making random live actions; good luck finding a music video at Video Hits One; and not only has
AMC officially renounced the “C” in their name, the “M” doesn’t fit with their programming either.
(Hey, I’m all for Breaking Bad, Mad Men and The Prisoner – but what do they have to do with American Movie Classics?)
And now the science-fiction network adds wrestling to its identity.
You know what’s around the corner.
Lifetime partners with World Extreme Cage Fighting.
Hannah Montana does a cross-over episode with Dexter.
Nickelodeon puts a Sex and the City block between Spongebob and iCarly.
Jason tried to calm me down when I saw the news about Syfy (pronounced “siffy” “s” plus “iffy”).
He suggested that maybe the wrestlers will be monsters versus mad scientists.
Okay, maybe I can get on board.
Just my thoughts,
