My wife & I we're having an interesting conversation last night while waiting for Lord of the Rings to start. We we discussing the now defunct Enterprise thread. So she asked so what other Sci-fi shows do you Browncoats watch.

The only other that we watch is Stargate-SG1. In fact i just read the transcripts from season 1 thru season 6 episode 3. That way I'mm all caught up with what's showing on the telly. Not only that we record Sg1 every Sunday night because we're at church. It's quite a tradition now.

So the question is, "What other Sci-fi do you watch & why?" no flaming just asking."

You think I look good now, wait till you see me in my new "Browncoat T-shirt"

I used to watch the X-Files, but now my enthusiam for the show has dropped to zero; I'm now using my old X-Files VHSs for recording eps of 24. Sometimes I watch Farscape when my aunt and uncle tape it for me; it's such a strange and complex show that it's hard to jump into, but the quality of the program is undeniable, and Scorpius is a really cool villain. Mainly I like to play sci-fi and fantasy computer games... does that count?

Oh, yeah, and I like a little program called "FIREFLY" as well! The shock!

Enterprise
Smallville




"Genre" shows of the past that I collect on DVD and watch over and over:
Quote:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Firefly
Star Trek: TNG
Star Trek: DS9
Twin Peaks
Futurama



Also enjoyed:

Alien Nation (I want this to come out on DVD!)

I'm boycotting the Sci-Fi channel because they passed on Firefly and I don't find their current programming all that interesting anyway.

Ah, but do you consider 24 science fiction? After the last couple episodes where what's his face is up walking around and having conferences with the president after getting shot! in the neck! that they've treaded right into science fiction.

We'll watch X-Files and ST:TNG in rerun.

If the X-Files is sci-fi, does that let me have a pretty broad definition?

If so, then also Buffy in rerun.

I really enjoy The Dead Zone and hope they start showing season three pretty soon. We'll watch Dead Like Me when that comes back on, too.

My newest favorite show is Carnivàle. It's not science fiction, per se, but it's definitely some kind of genre tv-- most people compare it to Twin Peaks. Most Firefly fans I've talked to about it really, really enjoy it. And its second season is supposed to start airing 'late 2004' according to the hbo press releases.

I've noticed that many people love watching SG-1. I've never seen more than I few seconds of commercial, but I'd like to hear about why people dig it.

For my wife & I it's all about characters. I like the alien stories of X-files. Loved the ep where the greatest baseball players were all aliens. Who'd a thunk it. We lost tough with Smallville, but hope to watch the DVD's a friend has. Never tried 24. Love Sg-1. Next to Firefly & Sg-1 the only other show we really loved was Season 1 ONLY of Dawson's Creek. Ok I'm not allowed to be banned for that. Once agin it was about characters. Tried Andromeda. Why??? and we really dug some of Voyager, so disappointed when all was said & done. Love the thread responses.

Me too - if the characters aren't well written, well acted or show some kind of development, a series loses my interest pretty quick. Andromeda, case in point.

I like Stargate SG-1, Angel, Smallville, Jake 2.0, although I'm not saving anything. I used to save everything, but it became too frustrating since networks like to pre-empt with sports so much. Reruns can be a wonderful thing.

I also like shows that have a supernatural aspect to them - Joan of Arcadia is fun that way because you never know what that intial request is going to bring in the end.

I'm also greatly anticipating the release of Carnivale on DVD. Not having HBO, I feel I'm seriously missing out on that one.

Generally, if a new show has a sci-fi/fantasy/supernatural aspect, I'll give it a look-see. Since the end of Firefly, however, I'm determined not to fall for anything. So if I ever get overly-cynical about anything, now you know why.

Babylon 5 any chance I get. Best Sci-Fi I have ever seen-Firefly is every bit equal to it. Both make me think.

Andromeda, because it is such hokey, poorly written, badly acted CRAP. The writers should have their hands broken so they are incapable of using any form of writing instrument or computer. The corportate sphincter squeezing out that crap and backing that show should be bankrupted so we can be assured that they will never again be able to provide it. If Televisions were toilets, we would be swimming in crap. It still amazes me that it is in its fourth season.

Enterprise, because Andromeda makes it look good.

Alias, which I guess qualifies as Sci-Fi. Fun to watch, appeals to my escapism.

I think that is about it.

If Twilight Zone is Sci-Fi, then that. Nothing else, really. Occasionally Enterprise, during baseball because the Simpsons wasn't on.

For movies, I love The Fifth Element. Leeloo is so shiny. Back to the Future, Young Frankenstein (Well, it's almost Sci-Fi), and I don't know, really.

I also enjoy CSI and Monk. And Casablanca and Roman Holiday.

watched a lot of b5 while it aired (now i got dvd's of it) 2001:a space odyssey is good, as well as apollo 13 (contact, with jodi foster is worthwhile). most of star treks with borg storylines were good. andromeda, that show is wrong on so many levels. long story short, it's a mess! sg1 is a decent sci-fi show. i like rda from mcgyver! i'd be remiss for of course not mentioning FIREFLY! enterprise is a half baked hodge-podge of junk! (it's like something gene roddenberry threw up in the toilet and wouldn't flush down). liked the first dune mini-series, second one not so good. the ALIENS movies were oh so very good. first predator movie had interesting points. anybody READ any good sci-fi lately? recommmendations?

p.s. how could i forget FARSCAPE. that show will be missed!

Just found out from sci-fi wire that Tru Calling is adding a seven episode arc with Jason Priestley during February sweeps.

Guess Fox wants to kill off that show too!

Excellent.

I have an affinity for most of what David Weber has written (I have seen some negative comments recently-I dont recall where) , as well as John Ringo. Some Dean Koontz, as I feel that some of his stuff borders on Sci-Fi.

My husband reads David Weber. Also, the "Bolo" series of books. He's much more sci-fi than I am. I prefer fantasy, i.e. Laurell K. Hamilton's "Anita Blake, Vampire Executioner" series and JD Robb's "In Death" series (she has a really interesting take on what the world would be like in the future). As far as TV shows, we like Enterprise, SG-1 & Angel, in addition to a lot of mainstream shows (CSI, West Wing, etc.).

Does anyone remember the mini-series "V" that ran during the 80's? Man, was I hooked on it! LOL.

Yeahehe, "V", I remember that back in the day, I was pretty keen on it too at the time. Its funny though, I saw it again a year or so ago and it was nowhere near as good as I remember. One thing though, I reckon Firefly WILL be ageless, it will still be excellent in 20 yrs or so.

TV sci-fi shows I like are:

Stargate (good stories, great special effects, a hot babe and Mcguyver...can't go wrong )

Star Trek (they don't have any of the cool stuff from TNG but I still like it)

Tremors (loved the original movie and the series has good stories)

Hmmm, that's about it. We need more (new) sci-fi on tv.

/ Stargate SG-1: I catch the affiliate airing of this (one season behind) since I'm unable to catch the Friday night eps on Sci-Fi channel.
/ Smallville: it got really interesting in the last season when they had less of the "monster of the week" episodes and focused more on Lex Luthor's eventual decent into evil
/ Enterprise: it improved just a tad bit when it started the whole Xindi story arc and now I want to see where the show will go
/ Angel: got hooked on it during its third season, I too wonder how the W&H aspect of its fifth season will play out
/ South Park: I still get a kick out of their twisted humor at current events; the latest being the ep where the kids are in Canada and meet up with Saddam (complete with his new "bum" look) aired just 4 days after it was on the news!
/ Carnivale: from day one this show has just amazed me. It is so dark and filled with imagery that I usually re-watch it to pick up on the minute details. I am eagerly awaiting its second season sometime in aught-four

Star Trek- xindi attack Earth because they think sometime in the future humans destroy their race.

Star Wars second prequel movie, Clone Wars- old geezer tricks everyone into big war so he can obtain absolute control.

One episode of Stargate did make me say WTF though. They fly a fighter to destroy a new weapon on a spaceship by blowing up it's exhaust vent. I was just waiting for O'neal to joke about The Force being with him.

All the sci-fi I like is old, Firefly has been the only thing this century I've really gotten into. Seems to me the the 90's was something of a golden age of Sci-fi. There always seemed to be something cool coming out,this centuy with the exception of Firefly not so much.

What I've got on DVD and video includes Babylon 5, Farscape, DS9, Voyager, Red Dwarf, original Trek, Doctor Who, Space 1999, Battlestar Galactica (1978 only thank you) The Prisioner, X-Files, Buck Rogers(1980's version total cheese but strangely enjoyable in an embaracing Velvetta sort of way) and that about covers it. I enjoy other stuff as well but that's the only stuff I bothered to buy pre-recorded. I got Twin Peaks as well but it's a bit of a strech to call it Sci-Fi.

The only thing still on the air I'm likely to get into is Jeriamiah,(a heinous misspelling? I don't know) I've never seen it but I'm a big JMS fan and it's comming to DVD this week.And in the tradition of everything cool getting cancelled this century it's likely to be cancelled soon as well from what I here.

Well there you have it.

Where I am there's not a lot of options for new sci-fi. We do have a sci-fi/fantasy/horror channel called Space but it's mostly syndicated stuff & re-runs unless they're showing a made-for-tv movie or a mini-series.

The only new sci-fi show I watch is Enterprise and I almost stopped watching it until they started this darker story line and I'll watch Angel too.

I watch Stargate SG-1 & Farscape when I get the chance and I own Seasons 1-3 (soon 4) of Babylon 5 and of course Firefly. Interestingly enough they've been playing Firefly on Space including the previously unaired episodes.

I'll also pretty much watch any sci-fi, fantasy or horror movie I can get my hands on.

Well, I don't watch too much TV as I'm pretty picky in what I watch. The last drama series I've been full-heartedly attatched to was Miracles, which you all know was cancelled prematurely by ABC. Be sure to check out MiraclesHQ ( www.miracleshq.com) for more info on the show and the campaign to save it.

Other than that, I also liked Jake 2.0 (which also go the axe... why does this always happen to me!?) and I was also a X-Files fan, though I haven't bought any of the DVD sets. All of my television interests are sort of focused to save Miracles at the moment... =P

Its one of the many running jokes on Stargate that O'Niell has never actually seen Star Wars. He makes passing references to it---"My name's not Kirk. Its Skywalker."---"I thought we were going with Red Leader on this one?"---but he never gets really clever SW lines.

In a season 5 episode, Jack and Teal'c show up at Sam's house with Star Wars, and we learn that Jack's never seen it----and its one of Teal'c's favorite movies.

Anyway, Stargate is the current "big thing". Its best to see it from the beginning, in order----seeing it piecemeal, you will probably understand the basic plot, but you miss out on scores of running jokes.

Also, I probably said this above, but the best new show of this season is unquestionably Joan of Arcadia. I tried Jake 2.0 and Tru Calling, and niether of them was as good as Joan.

CAINUNABLED


When a was younger, like 13-16 yrs old, I loved anything science fiction. I use to love Space Above and Beyond. Lately though, like in the past four years or so I have moved away from science fiction, because often in science fiction it becomes more about the story than the characters. I find shows like Earth Final Conflict and Andromeda a little corny (sorry to all their fans, don't mean to offend, just my own personal opinion). To me, Firefly is one of those extremely rare shows in science fiction that anyone can enjoy whether they like sci-fi or not.
By the way, if anyone was looking to buy a dvd set anytime soon I highly recommend Alias. Alias is another example of great tv. To me it is right up there with Firefly.
Also, need honest opinions here, should I go ahead buy the first season of 24 on dvd?

Till human voices wake us, and we drown.

I'm just now seeing that for the first time. I got tired of hearing about this show I'd never seen, so I downloaded the entire first season off Bittorrent. Its good. Not brilliant, but definately good.

Andromeda is more than "a little" corny. Its downright bad.

EFC....well, seasons 2-4 qualify as "a little corny". Season 1 is actually quite solid, and season 5 is unwatchable.

Unless you've got something against arc-intensive shows, then definately yes. 24 is a great show, and season 1 is the best its done----especially the first 13 episodes.
