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....:rolleyes:
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
I a bit a of a sci-fi junky myself. The Firefly series and Serenity are on the top of my list.
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... :mrgreen:
YUP That is why I have all the below full box sets to watch at my leisure(for the 4bazillionth time:mrgreen:)

And thats just some of them
Told ya I was a scifi dweeb:oops:
The original "Outer Limits" series
Oh yeah, the original Outer Limits. I have the whole DVD collection.
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.
Yeah I went with scifi because its my favorite but Highlander and Underworld and Van Helsing and stuff like that is good too I just consider them fantasy not scifi

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...
My avatar! I forgot about it until the last post. Too funny!
Sci-fi nut, yup. Pert near all the above beet watched (repeatedly)and enjoyed.
how about Buck Rodgers in the 25th century I have the dvds for it Randy
I liked the highlander movies, stargate, and Cleopatra 2525 (anyone know of this one?)
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?

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

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.
