Darth Vader, I Wish You A Merry Sithmas
The Geeks of Doom   |  @   |  

By The Dude Dean

Last November 17, I saw a storm coming, and I started Save Stargate Universe on Twitter and Facebook. Last Month SyFy moved Caprica and Stargate Universe from Friday night to Tuesday night because Wrestling was more important than Sci-Fi. SyFy really didn’t market this change, but I saw it for what it was. First Caprica got the axe and within one month both shows were canceled so that SyFy Channel would have more programming room for Wrestling.

In the last week the growth of Save SGU has been strong and steady. We are now over 4200 strong. But now, we’ve got to go to the Dark Side of the Force for some help. Two days ago, I came up with the idea to Wish @DarthVader a Merry Sithmas after seeing a tweet from him poking fun at SyFy.

Darth Vader tweets about SGU

I think that our group did well with it, but I don’t know if Lord Vader noticed our tweets about Sithmas (click that like for the most epic Facebook community page of all time). So this go around let’s try to get both @DarthVader and @DeathStarPR to aid in Saving SGU.

Retweet or reply to these tweets by @DeathStarPR and @DarthVader:

On the 12th day of #Sithmas my Dark Lord gave to me… 12 sabers humming. #12DaysOfSithmas #StarWars

On the 11th day of #Sithmas my Dark Lord gave to me… 11 Jedi dying. #12DaysOfSithmas #StarWars”

the 10th day of #Sithmas my Dark Lord gave to me… Ten TIE’s a-fighting. #12DaysOfSithmas #StarWars

On the 9th day of #Sithmas my Dark Lord gave to me… 9 Admirals choking. #12DaysOfSithmas #StarWars

On the 8th Day of #Sithmas my Dark Lord gave to me… 8 Ewoks stewing. #12DaysOfSithmas #StarWars

On the 7th day of #Sithmas my Dark Lord gave to me… Seven troopers stormin’. #12DaysOfSithmas #StarWars

On the 6th Day of #Sithmas my Dark Lord gave to me… Six Star Destroyers. #12DaysOfSithmas #StarWars

On the 5th Day of #Sithmas my Dark Lord gave to me… Five Golden Droids! #12DaysOfSithmas #StarWars

On the 4th day of #Sithmas my Dark Lord gave to me… 4 cyborg limbs. #12DaysOfSithmas #StarWars

So Lord Vader, please help us Stargate Universe fans have a Merry Sithmas this year. Please join our fight to Save SGU. There are Three Days of Sithmas left. I’m sure you can wish the SGU something nice for Sithmas. SGU on AMC? Maybe SGU on USA or TBS? What about Caprica?

A lot is going on SyFy Channel’s FB Wall they’re completely ignoring SGU’s fanbase about this issue. Please go and chime in and give them your two cents.

  1. And yet they’re still “going forward” with Blood And Chrome. Why? So they can have something to put in a gap where there’s no SuperJam/Slam/Whateverall? Sigh. I understand that wrestlers are freakish looking, but they’re not really Sci-Fi.

  2. I agree that wrestlers aren’t really Sci-Fi but NBC Universal can’t stick that crap on USA Network anymore because all of those shows seem to be rising in production value and acknowledgements. Too bad too because I think wrestling is a perfect fit for USA, where they claim “characters welcome” (WWE has some of the biggest “characters” I can think of!). With USA apparently becoming more mainstream though, shows winning awards and higher ratings, maybe NBCU just needed to stick wrestling someplace a little more obscure. Unfortunately, Sci-Fi Channel is that place and even more, they’re killing some pretty good shows (Caprica and SGU) to do it! I wish they’d cancel one of those silly paranormal investigation shows instead. OR better yet, how about creating a WWE Network so that people who like wrestling can simply order the channel as part of a sports pack and the rest of us can watch things like SGU where it belongs.
