    Ok, we're all obviously rabid obsessed Star Wars fans, but what else could you be accused of being a fanboy (or girl) of?
    For me it's:

    Doctor Who
    Star Trek (not the original series or films...)
    Aliens
    Predator
    Terminator
    BatMan (not sci-fi I know, but it kinda fits)
    Roughnecks
    Dune, the books, movie and mini series,
    StarGate
    Red Dwarf

    Just like to get an idea of what everyone else around here gets into.

    Off the top of my head and with a lot that have already been mentioned.

    Startrek - pretty much the whole lot. Never used to be in to it but we started watching it all in the past year. I like it but I'm no trekkie.
    Battlestar Galactica. There was a time in my younger days when I was more in to this than starwars. But of course, Starwars didn't have a weekly series back then.
    Red Dwarf - need to make more episodes. Withdrawal - Aaaarrrrggghhhhh!
    Thunderbirds
    Planet of the Apes original movies (haven't seen the new one yet)
    Alien/Aliens
    2001
    Men In Black
    X-Men movie and comics (not so keen on the cartoon)
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle comics (Not the movies or cartoons)
    Matrix
    The Forbidden Planet (forerunner to Startrek)
    The Day The Earth Stood Still
    Blader runner
    Ice Pirates
    Highlander (definately only the first movie and novel)

    Hmmm...

    Star Wars.
    Red Dwarf.
    Doctor Who.
    SeaQuest DSV.
    Stargate.
    Stargate SG1.
    Planet of The Apes.
    Aliens.
    Lost In Space. (the original series)
    The Time Machine.
    Farscape.
    Judge Dredd. (and as far as I'm concerned Lord Lazarath, there WAS no movie)
    Batman.
    The Matrix.
    War Of The Worlds.
    Higlander. (and for the uneducated, there was only ONE movie)

    I think that's about it... But if I tink of any other's I shall free to post again...

    <De-lurk>

    Apart from SW:

    Roughnecks
    seaQuest DSV (not 2032 - that killed it. As good an actor as Ironside is, I preferred Schneider as Bridger)
    Farscape - SIGN MY PETITION!
    Trek (I'm a Next Gen gal)
    The Outer Limits (The new series has some brilliant episodes)
    The Twilight Zone
    X-Files (before it got crappy, though)
    Dr. Who
    Lost in Space
    Red Dwarf (Forget Season 6 ever happened, though)
    Thunderbirds

    Brazil
    The Matrix (I was on set!)
    Dark City (I was also on set!)
    Bladerunner
    The Abyss
    The Terminator and T2
    Silent RunningThe Trek films (All except VI and IX. My fave is VIII)
    2001: A Space Odyssey (2010 sucked)
    Alien, Aliens, and Alien Ressurection. 3 sucked.
    Mars Attacks
    The Day the Earth Stood Atill (all time classic, that one is)
    MIB
    Back to the Future (All of them. Really.)
    Contact (book was much better, though)
    Metropolis
    THEM!
    Dark Star
    Earth vs. The Flying Saucers
    Plan 9 From Outer Space
    Godzilla (in any form before the '90s)
    Planet of the Apes (haven't seen the new one yet, but the original was awesome)
    Forbidden Planet
    Jurassic Park (I wanna see III!)

    That's all I can think of at the moment, and those are the ones I LOVE. I didn't include a lot of my faves that aren't quite sci-fi, like Edward Scissorhands and X-Men. I didn't include any films that revolve around superheroes, because to me that's a different category.

    ... Do we want a list of books, too? ;)
    *prepares to write several pages worth*

    EDIT: Forgot a few. :)

    Yes, the books and audio tapes of hitch hikers guide the galaxy (and the others in the series) are cool...

    although the tv series (on video anyway) was kinda crappily done... ;)

    Guh! I forgot SG-1 ... geez ...

    HHG was okay, but the books and the radio series were WAY better. I do hope they proceed with the movie still, after Adams' untimely death.

    Hmm, I seem to remember me saying in another thread about jawas being hoarders and collectors....

    Dude, seeing as I can't find the box set, and I have a fair idea what happened to it, How's about I mention the fact I have a turn table, wiring, and a cd burner?
    I'm sure we could both use it on cd.... ;)

    I managed to forget

    Blake 7 (hey I was a kid, I thought it was good at the time)
    War Of the Worlds - the book & audio tapes = awsome, the movie = so so, the game = shockingly crap.

    I should point out that I regularly record vinyl to PC and have my system permanently set up to do so. ;)
