AH... Maybe she won't have so much time to muck with things. :) To tell the truth I think she's been doing a pretty good job most of the time, at least.

Hi Morjana!

Every time I did I search on sifi.com, I came up with her name. Now I know why.;)

I wish her great success!

Uh, I was hoping she would get fired with the new administration. Oh well.

I agree.....does anyone here enjoy Scare Tactics, Tripping the Rift, Mad, Mad House or the constant re-runs? Or how about the made for Sci-fi movies.....mostly about bugs, snakes or other lizards? I think the programing hit a high before Barry Diller sold his cable holdings to Vivendi. It's been pretty downhill since.

Well, I guess there is always hope, but I truly long for a really good science fiction channel, and Sci-Fi hasn't fit the bill, except for a very short while, but that's just my opinion.

I agree with you on those horrible shows, but you blame this on Bonnie Hammer. Why?

Isn't "Bonnie Hammer" the name of the girl that Angelina Jolie plays in "Original Sin?"

I'd imagine Bonnie's being blamed for those shows because she was the head honcho when they were developed and put on the air.

Well, you got me then. It's difficult for me to believe that a woman would approve "Tripping the Rift' for airing.

I have trouble with that concept as well. Earth logic rarely seems to apply to television executives.

Well, I know Sci Fi channel people checked out the old forum. Maybe they'll see this, and tell us.
