A few things on Syfy don’t suck:  Twilight Zone marathons like this one going on now, and Doctor Who, and a handful of movies.  Still, within the non-suck-iverse of any given, perfectly enjoyable show, many worlds of ridiculous shite can coexist.  In this episode, as the Earth’s orbit collapses and it approaches its sunny doom, there’s no longer any night, definitely not the bitterly cold kind they have about 57 million miles closer to the Sun, on Mercury.

On the other hand, when Lois Nettleton wakes up and the situation is actually that the Earth is hurtling away from the Sun, it’s night all the time and apparently we’ll pass beyond our star’s influence within two or three weeks.  Screamin’ outta the solar system, baby!  Vroomvroom!
