It's like America's attic, in a way.  
So, watched the premiere of Warehouse 13 tonight, totally forgetting that Tricia Helfer's appearance is next week and only figured that out midway through the premiere itself, but I think it's pretty good so far. At least it's entertaining enough to be drawn in and the characters aren't annoying, and the lead guy is pretty funny and kind of awesome. Also? It was created and written by Jane Espenson, so that's a major plus. It has that good quality kind of entertainment like you would find in, say, Eureka with plenty of mystery. I was engaged with their assignment so, definitely has much potential and worth a shot if anyone is willing to test it out. I'm going to be seeing the next episode, that's for sure (not just because of Tricia, although that is something to be amped out watching anyway).

Other BSG alumni will be featured on the show too, along with other guest stars which, um, yay. They showed previews for Stargate Universe, which looks between wanting to be serious but will probably be for the lulz, and for Caprica, which I already have and seen and know it will be premiering next year and all but, seriously, I want moar new footage beyond the pilot, plz, kthx.

However, I do have one thing to mention....

I HATE THE NEW NETWORK NAME "SYFY", O HALE NONONONO! THAT IS JUST CORNY AND SILLY AND LAME. I'M STILL CALLING IT THE SCIFI CHANNEL I DON'T CARE WHAT ANYONE ELSE SAYS, "SYFY" IS JUST, UGH. NO. WHOEVER THOUGHT THAT WAS A GOOD IDEA WAS ON THE BADCRACK. I MISS THE OLD SCIFI LOGO AND THE MUSIC AND ALL THAT (though they are keeping the cool promos, that's awesome) BUT OTHERWISE NO!

SYFY? WHAT I hadnt heard of this. I wish to go back 5mins actually and not know again.

Yep, I'm right there with you. They even changed the website for it too. It sucks. Why did they have to change it, why I ask you?!? D:
noybusiness: lolcatbsgnoybusiness on July 8th, 2009 04:05 pm (UTC)
I'm still calling it Scifi. Maybe it'll revert.
Renéerogueslayer452 on July 8th, 2009 06:58 pm (UTC)
I'm boycotting the other, it's still SciFi to me and always will. Screw the new name. There's no reason for it.
noybusiness: lolcatbsgnoybusiness on July 8th, 2009 08:33 pm (UTC)
That, and Syf is a Polish word that means wart, lesion, or bloody mess and is used as slang for syphilis. Syfy is the plural.
Renéerogueslayer452 on July 9th, 2009 05:36 am (UTC)
Ew, yeah. That'll do it. :/

I know, I was watching and I was like, why does it say SYFY instead of SciFi? I liked SciFi way better.
Renéerogueslayer452 on July 8th, 2009 06:57 pm (UTC)
Me too. I mean, why change it? At least you know how to pronounce it. People have been going "is it sif-ee or si-fee?" Ugh. Just leave it as SciFi, for God's sakes!
icecoldrain: Bones - Huge plastic ice-cream cone ftw.icecoldrain on July 8th, 2009 07:20 pm (UTC)
I don't know, maybe they were having a major brain fart and decided that changing it to sysy was a good idea.

I don't think it was syfy on Sunday when I was watching POTC on the SciFi channel, so when I saw it last night I was like when did that happen? lol.
Renée: Echo; dealing with srs bznz.rogueslayer452 on July 8th, 2009 07:30 pm (UTC)
They officially announced that they were changing it on the 7th, which was yesterday. I saw promos for it when I was watching the Twilight Zone Marathon they had during the Fourth of July. But yes, MAJOR BRAINFART and a bad one at that.
icecoldrain: Bones - Huge plastic ice-cream cone ftw.icecoldrain on July 8th, 2009 07:33 pm (UTC)
I just realized I put sysy instead of syfy, but you know what? Sysy is better than syfy for some reason lol.

I didn't see any of those, but when I put on warehouse 13 I was like syfy? When did that happen? Now I know I missed the announcment. They could have at least kept the same font for syfy though, the new one kept drawing me in lol.
Renée: Hyori Lee.rogueslayer452 on July 8th, 2009 07:38 pm (UTC)
The new font looks very meh. I know they're shooting for bright and shiny new stuff but, idk, it looks off and perhaps a bit too shiny. I miss the old SciFi. :(

BUT STILL CALLING IT SCIFI, I DO NOT CARE! *stomps foot stubbornly*
icecoldrain: Bones - Huge plastic ice-cream cone ftw.icecoldrain on July 8th, 2009 07:47 pm (UTC)
It will always be SciFi to me. Syfy, what on earth. I have a block against it, I keep typing sysy instead of syfy lol.

Maybe they should dim the font a bit? It was just so bright and BAM!WE ARE SYFY NOW.
Renéerogueslayer452 on July 9th, 2009 05:35 am (UTC)
Dim it and not make it so HUGE, omg. O_O
Tracy: Glam Bitchesalexwhitman25 on July 8th, 2009 05:06 pm (UTC)
They renamed it SYFY??? Um what the hell is that. I'm embarrassed for them. But I will be tuning in Friday when Eureka comes back!!
Renéerogueslayer452 on July 8th, 2009 06:55 pm (UTC)
Isn't it just absolutely stupid? Once BSG left they've been losing their flavor, I swear. :/

BUT OMG YAY EUREKA!!! I CAN'T WAIT! :DDD
Jennifer: ats_davidboreanazjenniferkaos on July 8th, 2009 06:32 pm (UTC)
Warehouse 13 is that new show on Sci-Fi right? Does it have anything to do with vampires?

Ok, what is SYFY? Someone else was making a comment about that on Twitter.
Renéerogueslayer452 on July 8th, 2009 06:53 pm (UTC)
Yes it's a new show, and no it doesn't have anything to do with vampires. Yet. Basically, it's a show that deals with finding supernatural objects found around the country, containing them and storing them inside Warehouse 13. It's a kind of dramatic comedy, and while it doesn't primarily deal with vampires there might be an episode where they deal with something similar.

"Syfy" is the new name for the SciFi Channel. Sounds the same, only different spelling, which everyone, myself included, ABSOLUTELY HATES IT.
Jennifer: misc_mybaby2jenniferkaos on July 9th, 2009 04:27 pm (UTC)
I thought maybe it was about vampires. My boss has told me a while back about a show that was coming to Sci Fi. It was about these people who captured vampires and brought them back to this place for storage. I thought maybe this was the show he was referring to.

Oh and I noticed this morning while I was going through the channels on my tv that they changed Sci-Fi to SYFY. Don't think I particularly care for it.

GOSH YES. The whole SYFY thing grates on my teeth. It's hideous and TACKY. Hell, I even hate their new website.
GOSH...bring back the old Sci-Fi. Nothing was wrong with it!

I watched Warehouse 13 today. I dunno if I like it yet...It's ok but I think I need to watch a bit more to see if it's something I would watch regularly.

And the whole 'SyFy' thing makes me angry. D: I will say I do like that new commercial they have out but they could have done that with the old logo.
Renéerogueslayer452 on July 9th, 2009 05:34 am (UTC)
It definitely had a setup, but I agree, a bit more to see where it's all heading.

Ugh, everything about their new logo and catchphrase is very off to me. I don't know why I dislike it so much, perhaps because there was nothing wrong with the old SciFi name. :/
fai_nekoi: Dr. Who:  WHAT?!fai_nekoi on July 9th, 2009 07:40 pm (UTC)
They have a new catchphrase? I must have repressed it, lmao. SciFi makes more since to me than SyFy...
