* It's not that ''Series/BeingHuman'' being Americanized bugs me (well, it does but I've learned to suppress that irritation), it's that, in every single advert, they're hyping it as "an original series." How do they justify that? Completely blowing off the original creators just because the show isn't as well known in the US?

** Series/{{BeingHuman|Remake}} is a remake, so it being labeled an original isn't so bad. How do they justify calling Series/{{LostGirl}} or Series/{{Continuum}} original series since they are just re-airing them?

* As much as I love [[PiratesoftheCaribbean Pirates of the Caribbean]], I was surprised when they showed it on the Sci-fi Channel when it's not really sci-fi, it's more supernatural (did I just answer my own question?). But what really gets me is how they can show POTC when they ''can't'' show us TV shows like Series/{{Heroes}}, [[MysteryScienceTheater3000 Mystery Science Theater 3000]], and/or Series/DoctorWho... (Yes, I am a total geek, why do you ask?)

* ''Anime/ReadOrDie'' being aired really bugs me, for some reason. It's a great OVA, but... I don't understand what's so science-fictiony about it! Not to mention that it had to happen ''right'' in between one of the most pivotal moments of ''Main/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''...

** I agree. There are SciFi animes, you know. I think ''{{Ghost in the Shell}}'' fits fine.

* So, back in 2012, SyFy jerked around their Ani-Monday block before eventually canceling it. My question is whether or not they gave a specific reason for this. Or was it just for [[SciFiGhetto the same reason as their decisions that resulted in their]] NetworkDecay? Also, since [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/syfys-plan-more-space-operas-687454 they seem to be thankfully returning to their roots]], have they made any comments about bringing anime back to the channel?

** I heard that last night and got a good chuckle out of it. Not sure how that works. If you look up the North American one, you'll see that it was first a British show, so I don't see how they can fool that many people. I could be wrong, but I believe in the early days, ''TheOffice'' did the same thing.

** They're deliberately avoiding spending money on anything science fiction related. They probably only licensed a "sampler" of each series.
