SyFy Continues To Believe People Watch Their Movies For Reasons Other Than Drinking Games: A Rebooting Of Waterworld In The Works

By Jodi Clager | Trade News | November 27, 2012 | Comments ()


SyFy, the reigning King of ghost shows and movies involving iterations of giant animals, believes that the Kevin Costner shitbucket Waterworld is ripe for a reboot.. Ripe is the proper term, though our usage may differ, SyFy. I mean, did you see Waterworld? Wasn't there a map tattooed on a kid's back that led to the imaginatively named Dryland? I seem to recall jet ski chases, Costner with some sort of rat tail or something, mutants, and names such as Mariner. I feel like this doesn't really need a rewatch. Or a recap. Nevermind a reboot.

SyFy thinks a 400,000 strong viewership disagrees with me. Listen, honey, just because drunk and/or hungover people don't switch the channel when you peddle your sub-par wares doesn't mean that those people are actually watching your offerings. Maybe you should just stick to your "Original" stuff, like the totally-not-an-attempted-ripoff "American Horror House" and the not-at-all-related-to-the-HBO-hit "True Bloodthirst."
