Syfy doesn’t seem to be making any friends lately. After the network decided to cancel shows like the Battlestar Galactica spinoff/prequel, Caprica, and Stargate Universe, while adding mind–boggling non–science fiction fare like World Wrestling Entertainment’s Smackdown, former fans aren’t too intent on sticking around.
Now Syfy is adding to the growing number of unhappy fans with news that they will be canceling Eureka after the show’s fifth season ends.
A new video from Break.com is making it’s way around the web, and it’s…interesting, to say the very least.
The video is a spoof on the Enrique Inglesias song “Tonight I’m Loving You” dubbed “Tonight I’m Frakking You,” which replaces all the rhythmic sex of an Inglesias video with about as much geek content as humanly possible. No lie, friends, this is an all-geek wildfire, featuring cosplay fun from comic book superheros, Star Wars, Super Mario Brothers, Ghostbusters, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, and more.
You’ll even find a few familiar faces involved like Kunal Nayaar from Big Bang Theory, a brief cameo from BSG alum Richard Hatch, Amy Okuda from The Guild, and the absolute highest of high points of this video: Caprica star Alessandra Torresani as Princess Leia. Yes, that. You should go see. You can hug me later.
Be sure to click on over to the other side now to check out the video for “Tonight I’m Frakking You.”
The Battlestar Galactica prequel, Caprica, met its end far too soon despite being a very well-made show. For one reason or another, fans of BSG simply decided not to follow the show as religiously, leading to its untimely fate.
As we were waiting to hear the fate of Caprica from the executives at Syfy, they announced the plans for another spinoff series called Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome. The show was to be another prequel, set in between the storylines of BSG and Caprica when William Adama was still a young pilot. We saw a glimpse of this younger Adama in the direct-to-DVD movie (which they should make more of immediately — we miss the real cast), Razor, and fans wondered if the actor that played the youthful future Admiral, Nico Cortez, would be returning for Blood and Chrome. Now we have that answer.
It’s been announced that Cortez will NOT be returning, and that instead an actor by the name of Luke Pasqualino has been cast. In addition to that, it was announced that Ben Cotton has been cast to play the young Adama’s commanding officer. Pasqualino is a 20-year-old actor from England who appeared on the U.K. version of Skins.
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.
