ECW on Sci-Fi: An Accidental Viewing
I habitually clicked on the Sci-Fi channel to see what was 'a brewin'. It took me a grand total of 2 seconds to realize that something wasn't right. I realized I wasn't watching a typical Sci-Fi channel original feature. I saw what appeared to be the stereotypical 'ex-con, just off a stretch of 10-to-life' dude beating another 'gladiator' (I use the term in the lightest sense possible) with a stick. I watched ECW with a morbid curiousity, paramount to having my eyeballs sucked into an infomercial for two hours. Wrestling is an overwhelming display of the kind of cheese-bravado that every male can relate to- when we are 12! I watched ECW on Sci-Fi for a good ten minutes. Those ten minutes of my life are gone forever, but they will be well worth it if I can save another person just one minute of that awful waste of brain-melting time. I recommend taking a cheese-grater to your knuckles before tuning into Sci-Fi channel's ratings sellout. It's nice to see that the Sci-Fi channel is alienating it's true genre fans in favor of the not-so-cerebral 'wrassling' fanatic. If they keep bumping Sci-Fi genre material for non-genre ratings boosters, the channel will end like MTV- music television, minus the music.
