My god, how sad. I have to wonder though if this is in part due to the popularization and spread of sci-fi into the mainstream.

Overall, that is a damn fine list (the list of 22, not Scf-Fi's programming)

I could do without the horrid Roger Corman wanna-be monster and disaster flicks...hell, most of them make Corman looks like frikkin Cecil B. DeMille..but WHY WRESTLING? Wrestling is for Spike and other nchannels that depend on testosterone to fuel the glut of Axe ads. WHY ON SCI-FI?

Damn you, evil NBC overlords.
