Quantum Leap is one the best shows ever. I am a fan of most of the other series on the poll.
I will watch just about anything sci-fi. LOL Battlestar Galactica and Buck Rogers were staples of my pre-teen and teen viewing years. Love Stargate and Stargate SG-1. Love some old and almost forgottens like Logan's Run [movie and series] and Wizards & Warriors [Jeff Conaway's pre-Babylon tv sci-fi/fantasty foray]. Watched Dr. Who during the Baker years, but never got into the other Doctors [though I met most of them at a DW convention in the mid-80's]. Love Star Trek, especially TNG crew. Loved V [movie and series]. Can you tell I'm a sci-fi junkie? Ok, how about the fact that I can watch lower budget sci-fi series and shows and spot outtakes of battle scenes from the great B-movie Battle Beyond the Stars? LOL Love the Matrix, too, for being not just a great action/sci-fi flick but one with an intelligent story--which is why the idea of two sequels kind of scares me.
And are we talking straight sci-fi or does fantasy/sci-fi like Hercules/Xena count? Better not get started there. LOL
BTW, does this season's new crop of tv sci-fi scare anyone? Andromeda, anyone? And a new Star Trek series upcoming called Enterprise? Do we really need this? Ack! Bring back the Ewoks series, I say.
Yeah, V!! I can't tell you how freaky it was as a child to see that one chick swallow a whole guinea pig. [face_shocked]
CountDookie - I had the same feeling!
Definatly The Matrix, and while not a movie/TV series, I absolutly loved the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy books
OK, I know it's mainly in the UK but it's kind of in the US too: Red Dwarf. I think it is one of the greatest Sci-Fi shows of all time! And when the movie comes out next year, the world will know about RED DWARF!!!! (add evil laugh here)
Star Wars is #1 of all time, of course, but I also like Star Trek (TNG and Voyager, and looking forward to Enterprise - especially because of Scott Bakula! - which leads me to my other favorite) and Quantum Leap.
Most certainly Babylon 5.
Perhaps the greatest media-SF analogue to genre prose ever produced.
ST, what other show has so many fanatics to go with it? I mean there are people who know the languages that were made up for the show. Does anyone know hutteese?
Babylon 5, Stargate SG-1, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek. Others.
I used to like X-Files a lot (but then Duchovny kinda left and came back and...).
Quantum Leap is an awesome show! Scott Bakula...yum.
I'm liking Farscape right now. Speaking of the Sci-Fi channel...does anyone watch First Wave? I love that show! But it's being canceled...argh!!
Does Terminator count?
I don't like any of these options at all. Guess I prefer fantasy to sci-fi.
I voted Star Trek, but I also very much like B5 and XFiles.
Yeah, RED DWARF (friend sent us dubbed tapes from UK...boy, we were hooked!!)
Well, it really all started when I saw the moon landing I was 4 and it captivated me...from then on I favored SF, but don't like all SF
Liked many SF series TV:
Battlestar Galactica (when it first aired)
Star Trek (all incarnations)
Space, Above and Beyond
and when I was really little...
Lost in Space
and stuff that had to do with magic
My Favorite Martian
I Dream of Jeannie
I think that just about covers it.
tough one, but Farscape takes the cake
Speaking of incarnations, check out the EUCNN. It's a collaberation with Farraday and I to report the "truth". If you like what you see, tell others to visit.
Award winning journalism...
News that makes you think...
Stories that touch you...
Power dopplar radar...
...who needs it!
Stargate! Great blend of scifi and mythology; when I first saw the movie I thought it was the coolest idea EVER to have the gods be powerful aliens, and it is a great idea. Is Babylon 5 on anymore? I never got into it, but now I think I should have.
PLANET OF THE APES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait until the new one comes out, but i know it wont be as good as the original.
I've really gotten into Voyager lately and I used to love TNG.
i thought the Matrix was cool, despite negative reviews. i went in without any clue what it was and absolutely loved it, although i had to see it a second time in order to fully understand it. i am eagerly awaiting the sequels.
Stargate was a cool movie too.
I won't vote on this because I like more than one
The Truth is out There
