Wake up! Time to die: Seeing Ear Theatre has died

Seeing Ear Theatre

Alas, my friends I bear sad tidings…. Seeing Ear Theatre is dead!

If you’d been putting off listening to the wonder that was Sci-Fi Channel (U.S.’s) bold experiment, Seeing Ear Theatre, you’ve made a horrible, irrevocable mistake. As we predicted, and dreaded, the long abandoned, much loved and now much missed Seeing Ear Theatre website is no longer offering their archives in the RealAudio format. If you click on any of the audio links now you’ll only hear an error message.

I’m really hoping for a reprieve here, but I’m afraid its not very likely. The site had been abandoned for so long, and we’d all gotten so used to the access to the comfy old shows that were still archived there. But, as the web-architecture for the site has been aging unattended for more than six years we really can’t say its was all that unexpected. Its still possible the files are on file somewhere, and just now inaccessible for some reason, but I don’t like our chances of seeing a fix.

Goodbye SET, you were the best of your kind, you were unique, ahead of your time, you will be sadly missed.

  1. It appears that the Sci-Fiction, which was also axed from production by Sc-Fi channel has announcement on the SciFiction website stating that their site will no longer be hosting the text text from that magazine after Jun 15th!


    They, at least were given a couple days warning. We poor audio folks were given NO WARNING at all. :(

  2. I’ve seen the audio show up in different torrent sites… but there is one web site where many of them is available for a small price


    I got a CD with 88+ episodes via postal mail… The mp3 quality is not the best, but hey, its there. I post this for future Google searchers ;)


  3. This freakin sucks I want to start a boycott for sci-fi channel if they don’t bring back the seeing ear!!! whoes with me?

  4. Casey I think our best plan of attack would be to police up all available fan recordings made and place them on Archive.org. Sci-Fi, or as its now called SyFy, doesn’t seem to care about Science Fiction anymore. SciFiction and Seeing Ear Theater were the best things ever produced by the Sci-Fi channel.
