    Ok I admit it even at 50 sumthin Im a scifi dweeb, but they are a LOT like a space westerns so just out of curiosity how many here will admit to liking one or more of the Scifi brands out there
    A list of mine are
    Star wars, Firefly, Farscape, Some later Star Trek stuff and even Lexx(how many remember that?)
    Now with stargate,battlestar galactica etc still being on the air I know SOME of ya'll got to like some of them....

    so as not to hijack the other thread i will admit here that i enjoy the star wars series. really liked the star trek movie reboot.

    firefly/serenity gets a huge thumbs up for creative writing, humor, the use of a cigar box AND the hottest woman in the 'verse (Christina Hendricks before madmen) YoSafBridge...or wait, maybe its the Ambassador? um...both? mmmmmmm

    Yeah—Firefly/Serenity, and the TV Star Trek shows. I tried the Star Trek movies, but they all seemed contrived, and weren't as good.

    Our daughter turned us on to Firefly/Serenity. It's nice to have a child who "gets it," although she also likes Dr. Who.

    I was just recently pointed to Firefly, during a minor convalescent period. My son brought over the full box set, and it made a week of general misery much more tolerable. I enjoyed it so much that I went out and bought Serenity at the end of the week, and enjoyed that, as well. Great series, too bad it met the axe.

    In a related note, I've also decided I like television shows much better without commercials...

    I miss the Star Gate shows on tv. Loved SG 1 and Atlantis.

    Big fan of ST TNG. Love Star wars. And, while not quite that kinda sci-fi, I loved Highlander The Series.

    I watched Next Generation, didn't care for DS9 or Voyager. I liked the new BSG and was disappointed that it didn't have a longer run. I don't think that I have watched any sci-fi since BSG ended.

    My wife says I'm a sci-fi nerd. She's right. I love all these you guys are listing. But I REALLY miss.... The X Files. I know, more alien / supernatural terra based drama than "sci'fi", but my all time fav. Got all 9 seasons. But can only watch them when no one is looking...

    I do wish that Enterprise would have had a longer run
    And of course the cancellation of Firefly was one of the biggest mistakes in tv history

    Fond of Firefly and ST:TNG here. I'm also a fantasy fan, and I'm currently waiting for A Game of Thrones to start back up.

    I've heard good things about Dr. Who and was looking at picking it up. What's your take on it, Steve?

    Jayne--Do you know what the chain of command is?
    Dr--Y-yes, I think I do, it's...
    Jayne--It's the thing I'm gonna go pull off the wall and beat you with iff'n you don't do exactly as I say...

    LOLOLOL--LOVE Firefly

    Or the scene where Mal negotiates with the merc? "Now here is the money. You go tell Victor that we don't want no troubloe withhim nor his. I don't see no need for us to ever lay eyes on one another in the whole big verse...
    Thug--Keep the money. Use it to buy a funeral, because the last thing in this life that you will see will be my blade...
    Mal--Darn...<kicks the guy off the ramp, and he is sucked through the running engne. Goes to the next guy...> Now, here is the money..."
    Next guy"Right, right--best thing for everybody really!"

    LOLOLOLOL

    Sorry: I've been away on vacation, visiting our granddaughter (oh, yeah—and her family, too).

    I never liked Dr. Who. The old BBC (or Thames?) version was hokey and badly produced, and seemed aimed more at children than at adults. Extra-terrestrials capable of space and time travel, who used Enfield .380 revolvers and Browning Hi-Power 9mm pistols as their most potent weapons? Really!
    Our daughter sent us the brand-new version, and it's "sexier," and more maturely written and reasoned-out, but the premise still comes across as hokey.
    I still don't like it.
