Last night’s annual Syfy Channel holiday party was more than just a Yuletide gathering as the ever-growing cable network celebrated its 20th year on the air. That fact astounded me at first, but then I realized I had been watching it since around 1996. Taking place at the NBC Experience Store in Rockefeller Center, Syfy’s soiree featured the usual fine catering (including an extensive sushi bar), their special “Blitzen” drink as well as delicious desserts. What’s always fun about this particular evening is that it’s an intimate, low-key affair, and everyone is very approachable.

Stars of many Syfy series emerged for the auspicious event, including Julie Benz (Defiance), Jaleel White (Total Blackout), Allison Scagliotti and Saul Rubinek (Warehouse 13), Ksenia Solo (Lost Girl), Kristen Hager (Being Human) and Rachel Nichols (Continuum). Expect interviews with many of them to emerge on A.D.D. throughout December.

    Sadly this network has gone downhill in the last 10 years.
