The SyFy Channel has started airing some of their original programs in high definition, which makes the various monsters, spirits, and aliens look better than ever before. I like to watch “B” pictures, and I would say that a lot of the films that show up on this network on Saturday nights are “B” pictures. I base that on the scripts and the acting, but now that they show in HD, they are definitely one of my favorite types of programs to watch. They’re just plain fun and they take me back to my early teen years when I stayed up late to watch old black and white monster movies on “Weird TV”. But now everthing now is in color and the graphics are well detailed.
Where else can you see such vividly colored monsters, or the detail on the latest shapeshifting monster–down to the veins in the eyes? Since I’ve been watching SyFy HD programs on expert Satellite TV, I’ve found that my imagination is working overtime. Maybe I’ll write my own “B” picture for that network some day. It would be fun to see what I can come up with, and even more fun to see it air on a worldwide network like SyFy.
