I'm confused.

I just watched a made for TV movie on SciFi that didn't suck. In fact I might go so far as to say it was pretty good.

It's a viking/horror movie. Remember 13th warrior? kinda like that, but not as good (but better than you'd expect from a made for SciFi movie). I loved the costume and set dressing, it was close enough to authentic that I was impressed. The acting was a mixed bag, some of it was surprisingly good, some was so bad that their dad had to be helping bankroll the production.

If you got a couple hours to kill I recommend you catch this flick.

Did you not like their makings of Dune and Children of Dune? I have admittedly not read the books so have little in the way of comparison other than the David Lynch film, but I enjoyed them a lot.

You're right, those were good. But they were fairly high budget marquee productions, this was one of their slam and can shoe string sort of movies.

OIC: for that level of production, yes that's high praise! The SF Channel would not be one of the ones I chose if given the option to only pay for, say, ten channels. Even the Clive Barker vampire thing a few years ago was just wretched.
