Is SyFy's New Series The Internet Ruined My Life About Everyone on the Internet?


Even if The Internet Ruined My Life, SyFy’s upcoming unscripted series, ends up being a very bad show, it will at least go down in history as having one of television’s very best names. Can’t you just hear someone you know—or even yourself—say those words and meaning them?

“The internet ruined my life.”

“The internet ruined my life.”

It’s a sad thing to hear spoken, but it’s also said by people with great stories to tell.

Writes Variety:

“The Internet Ruined My Life” will expose the unexpected perils of living in a social-media obsessed world. Each episode will tell real-life stories of people who had posts, tweets or status updates backfire — from an innocent tweet that caused two traveling friends to be detained and suspected of potential terrorism, to a hashtag that unleashed death threats and a sniper outside a young woman’s window, to a profile picture that got transformed into a hateful meme shared by hundreds of thousands, the series tells each story through gripping first-person accounts.

I guess SyFy is officially a horror network now!
