Apparently Sci-Fi Channel feels the classic spelling of the genre is “too geeky” and is rebranding itself to appeal to a wider audience. So, they’ve decided on changing their name to “SyFy.” Seriously. I can’t make this stuff up.

I guess geek is no longer chic? Frankly, Sci-Fi or SyFy (or whatever you want to call yourselves), you ceased being geeky a very long time ago and drifted into white trash territory with Ghost Hunters, C-grade made-for-cable movies, and Wrestling. Honestly, wrestling?

If it wasn’t for BSG, I would watch the channel at all, so they’ve got precisely one week left from me. After that? Try and impress me guys, but I think I’ll just catch Caprica on DVD.

Official Word from “SyFy”
