Anyway, to really get you ready for the new movie, they are airing all their bad shark movies. Right now it is Sharktopus (I believe Pete "enjoyed" this a while back), before that they were showing Malibu Shark Attack (a Tsunami releases pre-historic sharks ). Yet to come today: Swamp Shark, Super Shark, Sharknado and 2-headed Shark Attack.

I love them. They make me realize that, yes, I could indeed be an Actor. And let it go on record that if the SciFy network needs a Computer Programmer/Action Hero figure for a movie to get eaten by a shark then let me know. I'll work for cheap.
Nope. He mentioned SyFy so I ran with it. I pretty much will not watch any movie on that channel. I watched a movie recently, I know that it was on the Chiller channel and I have seen this movie on Showtime as well. Pretty much hit the trifecta. Bad acting, terrible script and if Alan Smithee did not direct it, he should have. Pretty big names in it too. Ben Kingsley being one of them. The only reason I suffered through as much as I did was that I saw that I had a cousin in it and I watched it until they killed his character, then I changed the channel.
Like the classic song goes, "Got 13 channels of s*** on the tv to choose from" and I believe that they do their best to fill all of the channels they can with the most absolute crap that they have available.
I had 100's of channels and nothing to watch. As I said in another post, reality shows have ruined TV for me, but probably just as well. Now do not have any sort of tv broadcast. Download stuff, rip stuff, and watch Hulu.
Hey, a buck is a buck, if you are a poor out-of-work producer, you will take scraps to pay for the food on your table. The scraps you get for making the movie, however, mean that you have to scrimp somewhere.
You have to remember that there are a lot of people out there to whom a typical reality show is the equivalent of high art and/or literature. As long as eyeballs are generally looking at the TV long enough to be captured by the regular sudden switch to a car/soap/insurance/medical commercial, that is all the sponsors care about.

Could be a close race. Have not seen the movie, so don't know how bad it is. Probably pretty bad. Gave up on watching the SyFy channel a while ago because of these crappy movies that just keep repeating (and the damned ghost hunters, and damned WWF), and gave up on the History channel because of their reality shows, and stupid aliens from space. Reality shows have pretty much ruined TV for me.
