No actually I left those off of the list because I think they suck.
Also I wanted others to be on the poll instead.

Oh...sorry, I kinda thought they were good...:( Oh well...

Yeah, Nightrider was good, I forgot about that...not sure if it was Sci-fi, but worth a mention...

No that sucked because David Hasselhoff was in it. He should be banned from anything that involves film.

look poeple there are only a maximum of 10 polls I can put up here. I included 2 Star Trek programs that were developed by Gene Roddenbury I didn't feel like putting in the countless spawns of those two series. Without the Next Generation the spin-offs would not have been possible anyways. It's ok if you like them, but there are so many sci-fi shows that I can't put everything in a poll. Sorry!

Darklighter

Hey man, I'm sorry for moaning so much...its okay, i understand. You've got a good variety there actually. I'm just complaining over nothing, don't mind me:)

Battlestar Galactica!!!! Because it just rocks! I was only a kid when I saw the first ever episode (Yeah I'm old). Tis a shame that they can't resolve the legal dispute over it, I'd love to see a new series in the making.

Bah, leaving out the best Sci-Fi show ever, Farscape, but having two Star Treks? So I chose the second best, Stargate.

how could you POSSIBLY not include Quantum Leap? by far the best sci-fi, ever.

obi
07-29-2002, 01:59 AM
Yea, Quantum Leap as the best.

But out of the list, Star Trek: TNG owns.

Twilight Zone has the best stories in any sci-fi series ever. It goes far beyond most sci-fi to create themes that others can only scratch the surface, if even that.

You people need to watch some classics.

Story is much more important than special effects and pointless soap-opera drama.

The Twilight Zone focused on the very nature of what sci-fi is all about - the writer creating a story that your mind can understand and think about; even after reading/watching it; it truly reaches into your imagination and causes you to 'think'.

You will learn something about human nature watching the Twilight Zone - there is a huge amount of philosophy, psychology, history, and other subjects covered.

Heck, I could probably take a person who never participated in society, teach him English, and have him watch every episode of the Twilight Zone and he would have a better allegorical understanding of the complexity, struggle, terror, hope, and wonder of human nature than the average to above average person.

Not picking the Twilight Zone is a slap in the face of some of the greatest science fiction (and beyond) writing of all time.

Shameful.

The next time the Sci-Fi Channel has a Twilight Zone Marathon, or when you see it on a regular basis, I suggest watching a few of them - around the fifth one and you'll start getting the idea, feel, and abstraction of it all.

ok...........................Im confused.........Those aren't the same thing?

:confused:

anywho, Twilight Zone was a really good show. I liked it alot, and I always watch the marathons. BUT, ST:TNG is still better IMO.

It's OK. We'll just hold you personally responsible & direct all our misbegotten angst toward you. :)

This poll obviously warrants a sequal of sorts. Yes I forgot Farscape, but that was unintentional. I was going to put that one up there but forgot the name of it, so I put Alien Nation on there instead. I don't know about Quantum Leap though? Dr. Who used to make me fall asleep, must have been those robotic trash cans.
