Best Reason to Change the Channel

September 16, 2007 7:08 PM

We’re deep into the bloated Emmy midsection, where categories like directing for a movie or miniseries tend to bog down the show. Thankfully, you can still catch the world premiere of the Sci Fi Channel original movie “Grizzly Rage.”

Listing guide description: “A bloodthirsty bear terrorizes a group of friends stranded in the forest.”

The even-better Sci Fi Channel Web site description: “Bears on a rampage teach a mountain town new kinds of fear.”

Poster: A roaring grizzly and the ad copy: “Now You’re in Trouble. You Made Him Angry.”

And the network wonders why “Battlestar” gets snubbed.
