honestly, the only real sci fi show i've ever watched was the original star trek

never watched any of the sequels, but i do have a fan favourites dvd collection (5 discs, 3 or 4 episodes from each series as picked by fans) from all the series (so far only watched the originals of that too)

i've got the first 3 seasons of lost on dvd, it's a good tale, sci fi i suppose

and i've got the 1st season of heroes on dvd, not bad, but i'm not gonna get anymore

it's funny, i read a lot of sci fi, but have never really watched much on tv

I actually like Star Trek with PAtrick Stewart because the effects were more mature and you couldnt see the little fishing l;ine that held the ENterprise model .

Like Dj, I dont really care for much Sci Fi on TV but I enjoy reading it.

In my opinion, the new Battlestar Galactica is the best show on TV and has been for several years now. It's an intriguing story with lots of action, good acting and drama.

The Sarah Connor Chronicles is also a fantastic show. Despite a slow start in the first few episodes it settled down into a real character study of machines, consciousness and what it is to be human.

I believe that the classic Star Trek has a special n unique
place in American entertainment history. It explored some of
the potential for human development. Sci-fi can be philosphically inspirational.

I 've also enjoyed Ghost Whisperer and Kyle XY
The opportunity to look at Jennifer Love Hewitt shoud not be missed.

Yes.
I enjoyed the Terminator movies.

Is it possible for a non-living machine to be conscious ?

Can't pass up a SciFi thread. I too am enjoying both Lost and Battlestar Galactica. I loved the original BG when I was a kid. Star Trek was a favorite for a long time too. Futurama was a funny show for a while too.

Lorne Greene did a good job.

Classic Star Trek was UNIQUE.

I attended its legendary first 5 conventions in NY.

@Finn dAbuzz,
I forgot about Max Headroom - I loved that show.

I just caught Fringe for the first time last night. It was quite good, but a little too .... something.

I wish they would re-run The Ray Bradbury Theater.

It was an anthology series for six seasons on HBO from 1985 to 1992. All 65 episodes were written by Ray Bradbury and many were based on short stories or novels he had written, including A Sound of Thunder, Banshee and The Veldt.

BSG-the current one
Star Trek-TNG and Deep Space 9
Dark Angel
Max Headroom (I'd forgotten about that too, great sarcastic distopia).

I thought Wm. Shatner and Lorne Greene chewed more scenery between them than any two other actors in the course of theater history, the orginal BSG had a really high percentage of hams, but they did invent an original vocabulary, including an original four letter word (tho they spelled it with five letters "frack"--now as "frak" in the new BSG, as in "motherfrakker" , or "frak me", it seems to have started to pass into common usage (apparently they've used it in "south Park" or "the Simpsons", I forget which).
