I've got a kind of a love/hate thing going with the Sci-Fi Channel. For example, I loved the fact that when they first purchased the rights to air classic Star Trek
, they restored the footage that was edited out for syndication all these years. But I hated that after the first two runs through the series, they began to make edits again--sometimes cutting out even larger chunks of the shows than originally done in syndication. (Makes me appreciate my DVDs that much more, I guess!)
I loved Farscape
and hated Sci-Fi when they cancelled it. I've sort of forgiven them for picking up the upcoming mini-series in October.
Today, I have reason to love Sci-Fi yet again. Rumors are swirling that the poeple over at Sci-Fi are in negotations to pick up
the U.S. rights to the new Doctor Who
series, as well as showing the classic series. Nothing confirmed yet, but one can hope. And I'd hope that if Sci-Fi does pick up Who
, they bring it to our screens as soon as possible!
