Last night Syfy invited the press and advertisers to learn about their new shows, and see a private performance of the Broadway debacle Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark (that will be getting its own entirely separate review, because I can't even begin to squish all my thoughts on that in here). Anyway, there was the usual hobnobbing, and then Syfy President Dave Howe took to the stage, along with a flipping costumed Spider-Man to unveil their multitude of new shows. We saw clips of a lot of them, and there's some potential... of course, there are more shows about ghosts (because, of course) and also even more cheesy original films coming our way in the next year.
For some reason, the news today has made my little movie-and-comic-book-nerd heart grow three sizes.
Today's TV news has a a pretty fair distribution of the bad (Paula Abdul and Star Search) and the good (every other piece of news). It's a balancing act, really.
