I would have to say Doctor Who then Knight Rider.
Even the bad ones, isn't that the truth.
I loved this show in the version I knew it as, Star Blazers.
I pretty much like all that have been mentioned. Two I did not see were Lost in Space TV series and movie. The series in todays world is corny, but it was gre4at when I watched it way back when. The movie was okay.
The other was Buckaroo Banzai. For as bad as it got reviewed, I watch it every time I cross it on the clicker.
There are many SciFi and Mystery Series in the past–and they are not perfect in all.
My all time favorite is the British Series "The Prisoner" (in German TV "Nummer 6") with Patrick McGoohan filmed in an surreal British Garden City: Portmeirion.
My second favorite is U.F.O (also a British Series).
And the third is "Solo for U.N.C.L.E." (Crime, Thriller), an American Series.
Has anyone mentioned Lexx, the big Dragonfly looking ship? It was kind of Science Fantasy, but it was really good, and funny. The toilets were the most unusual I'd every seen! Eva was pretty cute, the first one had a pretty face, Zev, not so pretty in the face, everywhere else, yes. The Spaceship was massive, and alive.
And the reluctant captain Stanley Tweedle!!!
What was the plant girl? Poor Stanley! She did look human!
dr who (david tennant best dr ever)
I'm probably going to upset a few people, but now that I'm older, I really don't like the original Star Wars. I saw it when it first came out, and was really excited. But when I compare it to 2001 the special effects were really bad. When you look at the fighters you can see that there's a difference in the backgrounds. 2001 was technically far ahead in so many ways.
I loved Dune, and go for just about anything that's "B" movie sci-fi. They didn't try to preach in the early films. The Blob is a favorite.
For a laugh I really liked "Killer Klowns From Outer Space". So bad you have to like it!
I still think that Alien is the greatest pure science fiction/horror film of all times. Aliens was better entertainment, but I screamed in Alien.
In no particular order:
Doctor Who (10th doctor+, not the old stuff)
Being Human (BBC)
Stargate SG-1, Atlantis, Universe
Transformers: Prime (they went to a different planet once, it counts haha)
To be honest, only Battlestar Galactica for now; I liked Predator vs Aliens (and all Aliens and Predator films), and Star Trek I do not know, see few things.
Star Wars is strange. I did not lilke any of the films, but I played every videogame of it, and like all of them. Since Knights of Old Republic, passing to the newest Forces Unleashed and even the Kinect Starwars.
I never saw Stargate so no hint
Planet of the Apes (original)
The Invisible Man (Vincent Vintresca SciFi Channel Series)
Primer (Time travel movie- if you haven't seen it, do!)
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Fire in the Sky
Star Wars, The empire strikes back
Logans Run the movie
the quintesential 2001
I also like 2010
Star Trek TOS/movies
Metal Gear Solid (yeah the last two are video games, I wish they were movies!)
stargate all of them
battlestar galactica (1978-1980)
six million dollar man
