Syfy doesn’t seem to be making any friends lately. After the network decided to cancel shows like the Battlestar Galactica spinoff/prequel, Caprica, and Stargate Universe, while adding mind–boggling non–science fiction fare like World Wrestling Entertainment’s Smackdown, former fans aren’t too intent on sticking around.

Now Syfy is adding to the growing number of unhappy fans with news that they will be canceling Eureka after the show’s fifth season ends.

Watch Now: Geeks Go Wild In New Music Video ‘Tonight I’m Frakking You’

A new video from Break.com is making it’s way around the web, and it’s…interesting, to say the very least.

The video is a spoof on the Enrique Inglesias song “Tonight I’m Loving You” dubbed “Tonight I’m Frakking You,” which replaces all the rhythmic sex of an Inglesias video with about as much geek content as humanly possible. No lie, friends, this is an all-geek wildfire, featuring cosplay fun from comic book superheros, Star Wars, Super Mario Brothers, Ghostbusters, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, and more.

You’ll even find a few familiar faces involved like Kunal Nayaar from Big Bang Theory, a brief cameo from BSG alum Richard Hatch, Amy Okuda from The Guild, and the absolute highest of high points of this video: Caprica star Alessandra Torresani as Princess Leia. Yes, that. You should go see. You can hug me later.

Be sure to click on over to the other side now to check out the video for “Tonight I’m Frakking You.”

‘Battlestar Galactica’ Prequel ‘Blood And Chrome’ Casts Its Young Adama

The Battlestar Galactica prequel, Caprica, met its end far too soon despite being a very well-made show. For one reason or another, fans of BSG simply decided not to follow the show as religiously, leading to its untimely fate.

As we were waiting to hear the fate of Caprica from the executives at Syfy, they announced the plans for another spinoff series called Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome. The show was to be another prequel, set in between the storylines of BSG and Caprica when William Adama was still a young pilot. We saw a glimpse of this younger Adama in the direct-to-DVD movie (which they should make more of immediately — we miss the real cast), Razor, and fans wondered if the actor that played the youthful future Admiral, Nico Cortez, would be returning for Blood and Chrome. Now we have that answer.

It’s been announced that Cortez will NOT be returning, and that instead an actor by the name of Luke Pasqualino has been cast. In addition to that, it was announced that Ben Cotton has been cast to play the young Adama’s commanding officer. Pasqualino is a 20-year-old actor from England who appeared on the U.K. version of Skins.

Darth Vader, I Wish You A Merry Sithmas

By The Dude Dean

Last November 17, I saw a storm coming, and I started Save Stargate Universe on Twitter and Facebook. Last Month SyFy moved Caprica and Stargate Universe from Friday night to Tuesday night because Wrestling was more important than Sci-Fi. SyFy really didn’t market this change, but I saw it for what it was. First Caprica got the axe and within one month both shows were canceled so that SyFy Channel would have more programming room for Wrestling.

In the last week the growth of Save SGU has been strong and steady. We are now over 4200 strong. But now, we’ve got to go to the Dark Side of the Force for some help. Two days ago, I came up with the idea to Wish @DarthVader a Merry Sithmas after seeing a tweet from him poking fun at SyFy.

One More Show Dies Before Its Time As SyFy Cancels ‘Caprica’

Today has brought news from a variety of sources that the SyFy Channel has canceled its low-rated but very excellent (in this humble viewer’s opinion) series Caprica.

Speaking about the cancellation, Mark Stern, Executive Vice-President of Original Programming said, “We appreciate all the support that fans have shown for Caprica and are very proud of the producers, cast, writers and the rest of the amazing team that has been committed to this fine series, Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, Caprica has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season.” The show will stop running new episodes as of this week’s (October 26th, 2010) episode, with the remaining five episodes of the season to run at some point early next year.

Syfy’s cylontastic hour-long drama Caprica returns to the network tonight to finish out the second half of its season, which is said to be filled with multiple robot-sentient Zoe Graystones and more screen time for James Marsters‘ character Barnabas Greeley.

We’re just doing our duty as geek journalists by reminding everyone who didn’t catch our earlier post [Read:‘Caprica’ Returning To SyFy Early, Oct. 5 Premiere].

‘Caprica’ Returning To SyFy Early, Oct. 5 Premiere

Fans of the Battlestar Galactica prequel series Caprica no longer have to wait until January 2011 for new episodes, according to the SyFy Channel.

The network announced that the show’s 1.5 season premiere will now air October 5 at 10 PM EST following the premiere of Stargate Universe. Sanctuary, which was originally intended for this time slot, has been bumped back to October 15 — a Friday.

For the majority of Caprica fans (e.g., people who are reading this article) the new time slot gives them back their Friday nights, but who knows how it’ll affect DVR and TiVo numbers. One thing that may hurt the show on a Tuesday may be the non-geek crowd that perhaps watched the show because nothing else compared to it on a Friday night.

Time will tell, but I’ve heard there are multiple Zoe Greystones for the last half of the season, so I can’t imagine ratings would dip.

Check out a clip of the upcoming episodes embedded below.

SyFy & Ronald D. Moore Thinking Up More ‘Battlestar Galactica’ Spinoffs

BSG

If you’re not watching the first season run of Caprica, then you are truly missing out on a great new TV show. Folks who want or expect it to be Battlestar Galactica — the beloved series for which Caprica is a prequel to — will for the most part be disappointed, but for anyone open to a new kind of show set in that world, it’s really starting to stand up on its own two man-made legs.

Due to the undying popularity of Galactica and the growing popularity of Caprica, not to mention the spinoff movies that have been produced so far, it comes as no surprise that SyFy has a desire to create yet another spinoff series, and is exploring any possible options that there may be with Executive Producer Ronald D. Moore (and probably David Eick).
