SyFy Tries to Stop Sucking with Its New Show Lineup

by Shane McGlaun

Remember back when the SyFy channel was the Sci-Fi Channel and they had all those awesome shows on Friday nights? Sci-Fi was the place to watch Stargate: SG1, Farscape, and my favorite, First Wave. There have been some hits from SyFy since it departed from its roots with Battlestar Galactica and some others, but mostly the shows have sucked.

SyFy is now promising to get back to its roots, and some of the new shows coming will definitely have me tuning in. Here’s a quick rundown of the show descriptions:

  • Childhood’s End. Mini-series, 6 hours. Stars Charles Dance. Based on Arthur C. Clarke’s sci-fi classic, follows a breed of aliens called the “Overlords,” who manage to peacefully invade and rule Earth, and create a pseudo-utopia that comes at the price of human identity and culture. Premieres 2015.
  • The Expanse. Series, 10 episodes. Based on the series of books by James S.A. Corey, a thriller set two hundred years in the future, The Expanse follows the case of a missing young woman who brings a hardened detective and a rogue ship’s captain together in a race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history. No date.
  • Hunters. Series, 13 episodes. Based on Whitley Strieber’s novel Alien Hunter, a Philadelphia cop searches for his missing wife leads and discovers a secret government unit that assembled to hunt a group of ruthless terrorists who may not be from this world. Premieres 2016.

I hope these shows turn out to be as cool as some of that old content. What do you think? Are you excited for these new shows?
