I've always been a staunch, non-ironic supporter of the Syfy channel, but I'm well aware that I'm in the minority on that. Well, now all you Syfy-mockers should get down on your knees and give thanks to the Sharktopus and Dinoshark gods for Syfy's newest gift, Red, a re-imagining of Little Red Riding Hood starring the adorable Felicia Day. Don't be alarmed, that strange sound you hear is thousands of geeks simultaneously sighing at the thought of Day idly wandering a dark forest in a, well, little red riding hood.

How does Felicia Day casting news get any better, you ask? SCI FI Wire explains, "In the action-packed Red, Red (Day) brings her fiancé home, where he meets the family and learns about their business - hunting werewolves. He's skeptical until bitten by a werewolf. When her family insists he must be killed, Red tries saving him. Red also stars Kavan Smith (Stargate Atlantis) and Stephen McHattie (Watchmen). Red is produced by Angela Mancuso and Vesuvius Productions in association with Chesler Perlmutter Productions."

Felicia Day...hunting werewolves...with the star of Pontypool? You are far to kind to the legion of fans who love to hate you, Syfy.
