It was a lead in for some movie and it was a 'special' circumstance.

I am really tired of the SVU characters. Please kill Much, Ice T, and Stabler.

...of a world where magic and superstition were real?

Are they trying to trick the young into thinking BraveHeart is Dark Kingdom Part 2 and that is Kristanna Lokken in the banner?

What does "superstition was real" mean? Let's just say:

"In a world where an irrational belief that an object, action, or circumstance not logically related to a course of events influences its outcome is real."

Let's just stick to BSG and Quantum Leap reruns, shall we Sci-Fi channel?

I was shocked when I found it. That traces back to late 2002.

I just got the Farscapre Miniseries on DVD, and watched a couple of old eps of SG-1. I was thinking, SciFi is kinda ok again. It slowly picked itself back up to be a real scifi channel. Dr Who, BSG, even the bad saturday movies are like a throwback to the 50's drive in features. I almost forgave SciFi.

And then the commercial for Law and Order SVU came on.

Fuck you Bonnie Hammer.

When you consider that the alternative to Law & Order is probably Mansquito 2 starring Coolio, it starts to sound a little more appealing.

I saw the ad for Law and Order and WTF!?!?

I am not a Law and Order fan so I don't get it. I also don't get the SciFi channel showing Passions on weekday mornings. I know Passions was similar to Dark Shadows but come on ITS A DAMN SOAP OPERA!!

Take care all!!

I love Law and Order, but god damn, how many channels does it need to be on? And Sci-Fi at that? This is worst than Cartoon Network runnin' Saved by the Bell!

Maybe it is an Elizabeth Rohm episode. She does look like a ghost.

What kind of "special circumstance" justifies showing a crime drama on a sci-fi channel? I don't care if aliens are landing in the suburbs and assraping the hicks and their cattle, then grabbing the cityfolk for genesplicing experiments, if Benson and Stabler are investigating it then it's still Law & Order, which is (I'll repeat it again) NOT a sci-fi program.

The movie that this 4 hour block lead in to (according to Sci-Fi's schedule) was American Psycho, also not a sci-fi film.

Does science not come into play in law? And is the show fiction? Sounds reasonable to me.

Isn't it obvious?

Viewers of the Sci-Fi network are incredibly interested in sexual deviancy, hence the old episodes of Law & Order: SVU.

In a landscape where MTV is now a teen reality show channel, The Cartoon Network airs Saved By The Bell, The Learning Channel is all about What Not Wear, American Movie Classics shows a British TV series...what do you expect?

Why not just create the Law & Order channel and get it over with?

What's next? You'll be sorry you asked: on May 30th ... professional wrestling (http://www.scifi.com/schedulebot/ind...2006&feed_req). I guess since The Undertaker, Kane, and Boogeyman have supernatural themes it qualifies. All part of Bonnie Hammer's evil master plan to turn Sci Fi Channel into USA2.

They've always played horror movies though. I remember they used to have really good marathons of Hammer movies.

That's not a bad idea. Then we would have somewhere to go where we wouldn't have to put up with Law & Order re-runs. Maybe they could show old episodes of Gunsmoke or something.

It all started when MTV stopped showing music videos or was it when ESPN started making movies?
