    Nothing says quality programming like Siffy! Actually I don’t mind Defiance, but assume they will just be rerunning already shown episodes. And to use the word “classic” in the same sentence as Sharktopus. Don’t expect to see very many of these show up in the top 100 listings.

    @JFC,

    And to use the word “classic” in the same sentence as Sharktopus

    I don’t know, Sharktopus does seem like the quintessential Syfy monster movie…
