No. I'm not. Although it doesn't hit me as hard as it does Nishi there, because I said from the beginning that my understanding of Sci-Fi was that they didn't really give shows a chance, or provide the necessary viewership. I've never watched Battlestar, but heard people use that as evidence of their giving a series a chance to get its footing, but I've still always had the impression they were flighty with shows, a la FOX.
Battlestar is their 'flagship' and some of the episodes of Dresden got better numbers. The reason I am so pissed off about this is actually much deeper then my love for Dresden. It's the constant insult of the channel itself.
Bonnie Hammer was quoted as saying she wanted to attract female viewers. What does she do? Wrestling on Sci Fi? PainkillerJane. Dumb ass B movies of the month? Then, to put salt in the wound, she actually gets a show with a lot of potential that attracted both genders and she doesn't even give it a chance. Dresden wasn't even given a full season.
I guess you can't be female and love Sci Fi.
Hell, I watch the Spike Channel more then I do Sci Fi anymore. Reruns of Next Gen and Voyager.
