Comet TV – What Syfy Used to Be

It’s no secret the Syfy channel has went to complete shit. They were a big reason I dumped DirecTV. Why pay all of that money when the networks I used to love aren’t worth watching anymore? Turns out I’m not the only one who lost patience with them when they went all fake-reality all the time they weren’t running professional wrestling. Seriously, the amount of steroids those wrestlers consumer is interesting from a “why aren’t they dead yet?” standpoint but, not really a science fiction thing.

Yes, I have lamented before about the dramatic and unforgivable fall of the Syfy channel. But, we have hope. Remember when Syfy was great old science fiction movies and Stargate SG-1 all the time? Well, you now have a new home, CometTV. It’s even available over the air in many markets. As of April 3, 2017 Stargate is back. And, it appears they are running them in order. They do a kind of cool thing too. They run 2 episodes, then re-rerun the same 2 episodes immediately so if you came in late you can still see it all.

Don’t know about your viewing area, but for those on Central time U.S. they start at 7pm. I may just have to miss the NCIS lineup on Tuesdays.

Yes, they have some really awesome science fiction movies. By awesome I mean a lot of the B-grade cheesy awesome. I mean, they dug up Vincent Price!

I am a bit saddened that they are running “Dead Like Me” during the middle of a weekday. It’s actually one I never got around to seeing but thought I would really like.
