  10. KenL says:

    Will watch nothing more on Syfy no matter what the reviews. They have too often cancelled shows I like before their time. Ciao syfy.

    • wrstlgirl says:

      I’m sure they’ll miss you :-)

      • KenL says:

        LOL. I’m sure they won’t miss me, but I’m pretty sure I”m not alone in giving up on that network. I wish them luck. Just without my time being wasted anymore.

        • wrstlgirl says:

          Well I do agree to a point. But I’m just different in that if I see something I might like I’m gonna check it out. I don’t care what network it’s on. I guess I just feel that if I boycott something like that I’m only hurting myself because I’m pretty sure they won’t care, lol.
