I recently talked about my thoughts of having ECW on Sci-Fi. Since that time ECW has surpassed Sci-Fi’s expectations. ECW was expected to do a 1.4 in the ratings, and has averaged 2.3. Not too bad I’d say.
Now I can’t speak for others, but I have begun watching Sci-Fi now that I’ve started watching it for ECW. Of course, I love Who Wants to be a Superhero? (with my favorite moment on the show being Stan Lee ranting about how Spider-Man would never take of his mask. This episode appeared just weeks after Spider-Man unmasked himself in a press release during Marvel’s ongoing Civil War). In addition to that, I just learned that Dead Like Me airs on Sci-Fi. I loved that show when I actually caught it on Showtime, and will be watching it Sci-Fi from now on.
Now, someone tell me whenever Firefly and Babylon 5 finally start airing episodes from the beginning and I’ll watch them. I only hope Firefly isn’t as overrated as Astonishing X-Men has been (it’s a good read, but nothing breathtaking).
