USA dropping Sci Fi


New member
I've heard that the USA Network is considering or already planning to drop Sci Fi, I imagine this would not be good for a possible Rangers series, and could even be an explanation for why Sci Fi hasn't picked it up as a series yet. In my opinion this would be cruel and tragic, giving us once again a taste of the B5 universe only to take it away again. I was wondering if anyone was heard anything regarding this, and if so, what we should to do make sure this doesn't happen?

It's not true. The president of USA recently quit his job, and they aren't planning to replace him. That's all.

And do you really think SciFi would commission two more seasons of Farscape knowing that their channel might be in the can?

Sheridan: Are you trying to cheer me up?
Ivanova: No sir, wouldn't dream of it.
Sheridan: Good, I hate being cheered up. It's depressing.
Ivanova: So in that case we're all going to die horrible, painful, lingering deaths.
Sheridan: Thank you, I feel so much better now.
The rumor seems to be on the moderated group's website, too.

I hope it is just a rumor.

Take everything you hear with a grain of salt until you hear it from the horse's mouth.

I agree - knowing that their channel was even in danger, Sci-Fi wouldn't have commissioned two new seasons of Farscape.

In our sleep, pain which cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, until, in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom through the grace of God.
I heard this at Syfy Portal, and I'm well aware that it's only a rumor. In fact, I pray that it is only a rumor. Good to hear about farscape though. Although I know they cancelled Invisible man and one other show. Let's just keep Sci Fi's well being in our thoughts and prayers.

This is news to me. I hadn't heard anything about this till now.

I really hope this is just a rumor, because that's about the only channel I watch now.

ehhhh.....trust no one...when channel 44 goes black I'll believe you.

"Tho' much is taken,much abides; and tho' we are not that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will. To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."

Even if USA were not affiliated with Sci-Fi anymore. Wouldn't you think it would be popular enough to be sustainable on it's own? I think it's become it's own entity after all these years, don't you?
