Does anybody watch Sci-Fi original movies hoping they'll actually be good?

I know I won't be crying...
I believe the question you're asking is "Does anybody watch anything on Skiffy at all and expect it to be good?"
Well, they do have those Twilight Zone marathons.

Other than that, fuck 'em.
Other than Battlestar? Nope. And we spend the BSG commercial breaks -- when we're not fast-forwarding through -- laughing our asses off at the "SciFi Original Movie! (tm)" previews.
I know: five years after I was forced out as "Rant" columnist over at the Channel magazine, I see less of a reason to get cable over the current schedule than I did back when I had the cable disconnected at the end of 2001. Unfortunately, most fans keep acting like abused girlfriends: "But Bonnie Hammer promised that she wouldn't work me over with the six-foot sandstone strap-on and the habanero lube this time. She promised!"
Doctor Who. The new Doctor Who is magnificent, easily Buffy-level.
True, but it's not as if the show was made specifically for Skiffy. Otherwise, it's still "Where Bad TV and Movies Go To Die".
