I have been a loyal subscriber to the SciFi Magazine, the official magazine of the SciFi Channel, for many years. And I’ve noticed a trend in the “TV in Focus” section getting months behind for quite a while. But this latest issue (February of ’09) was the most disappointing of any issue they’ve ever put out. Because of content? No. I would have loved to have read this issue LAST FALL. Instead, this “February” issue gave us old TV and movie news on almost every single article. Stargate Atlantis is over. I would have loved to have read the behind-the-scenes look before the actual finale. The article mentions that it’s still weeks away. Articles on movies that have already come and gone are a waste. How about actual previews? Who wants to read old news?
I literally skimmed the entire magazine and threw it away. What a waste. I’m not sure who it is that’s so behind – The writers? The editors? The printers?
All I can say is that if the next issue is more of the same, I’ll be cancelling my subscription and sticking to online new sources.
