    Actually Bond movies on Syfy makes sense and should draw ratings far beyond weak fare like Sharktopus.

    They always do Bond movies on Syfy, been doing it for awhile and yes, it’s often a solid way of getting ratings although I think the Twilight Zone marathons do just as well.

    I hope I remember to record Sharktopus next time it is one. I, for one, think it ranks right up there with Mansquito as a modern classic.

    Who’s excited for syfy original movie Bigfoot?
