SyFy has announced their slate of new shows and movies.  Among the highlights -

"Mega Piranha" (Premieres April 10) - Barry Williams, '80s mall singer Tiffany and Paul Logan team up to stop a giant mutant piranhas, hungry and heading for Florida.

"Mongolian Death Worm" (Premieres May 8 ) - The worms have been awakened by the oil drilling in the Mongolian desert, and it's up to a treasure hunter (Patrick Flannery) to stop them lest they devour everything in their path.

"Sharktopus" (Date TBA) - Starring Eric Roberts and Hector Jimenez, the film centers on a genetically engineered shark-octopus hybrid that goes on a killing spree on the beaches of Mexico.

...and whatever other creatures whose names they found scribbled in an 8-year-old's notebook.

And that's just the movies!  There's also a whole slew of reality shows.  On the plus side, at least most of the movies and shows are actually somehow related to science or science fiction.  I guess that's more than you can say for most cable channels these days.

Supposedly they are interested in another BSG spinoff, this one being a bit more in the space opera vane.

He did make the first one-- it was horrible.
Got the special edition comic....lame.

I believe, that the second winner never got a movie, nor did he get the action figure- but I could be wrong.

That said, my daughter and I really liked both seasons ... eek

Wait, was that Feedback's cameo in Mega-Snake? Or did they make an actual Feedback movie?

Let's all hope that SyFy decides to make their own version of "Octopussy"
