    Shame on the SciFi channel (I *refuse* to use the dumbass name they changed it to) for canceling Eureka, their best show.  What are they going to replace it with, more wrestling?  Dumbfucks.

    Meh, SciFi/SyFy/whatever they’re calling themselves has been going downhill ever since they cancelled MST3K (and replaced it with the type of movies with which MST3K would have had a field day).
