Red Dwarf...

Anytime they have a Red Dwarf marathon on (usually lasts for an entire weekend-24 hrs. a day) my son disappears into his room and we don't see him until it's over...we do hear him leave his room long enough to use the bathroom, but then he disappears again.


Have any of you ever been to a Star Trek convention???

Ditto, JD, on "Red Dwarf," recently shown in a marathon on the BBC cable channel.

Ah, Red Dwarf. Actually, I was thinking of Twilight Zone when I voted for other - and I love, love, love Star Trek.

And does Science Fiction have to be about outer space? What about Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Is that Sci-Fi or perhaps horror? Or Alien Nation? Even though the aliens are, well, alien, no one goes anywhere in a rocket or anything like that.

I, like JerryR, also have a soft spot for a lot of Irwin Allen shlock. There's just something about Land of the Giants that makes me want to watch - helfino what that is, actually.

You know,...I love the english stuff, Dr. Who was a childhood favorite , I liked Red Dwarf, and really loved Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I even like Space 1999,..which I've been watching on dvd lately.

Lately I have been watching that one with Zev in it cannot remember the name right now and cannot find the DVDs. It was best the first season but still I like it.

Hi JoanneDorel,
The series was called LEXX,..and I agree, first season was best.
They spun off from three movies "Tales From A Parallel Universe",..also really good.

The original '60's Outer Limits wins my vote, although it was heavy on BEMs. That show scared me so much as a kid my parents wouldn't let me watch it any more.

Does anybody remember "Way Out", by Roald Dahl? There was one story that has haunted me for years. I once went to the Museum of Radio & Television, and watched old Way Out tapes all afternoon, but could not find the one that I wanted.

In fact, when I first joined Abuzz, I asked a Q about it, but no one seemed to know. It was a very short lived, but wonderful series.

And today, checking again, I FOUND IT! It is called, "Overnight Case".

I loved the original Star Trek as a kid....

I LOOOOOOOOOOVE Red Dwarf - and loved Hitch-Hiker's Guide as well as Doctor Who - especially when he was Tom Baker (swoon....).

I also - again as a child - loved a British series called A For Andromeda (it was a serialised story - not a series as such), as well as Twilight Zone and Outer Limits.

I used to love to sit up as a kid and watch the old fifties SF scary movies late on friday nights - though some of them scared the bejesus out of me!
