Babylone 5 is my favorite, it's wonderful.
Top 5, In order of preference WITH justification:
Babylon 5 - first coherent multi-season plotline. A novel in TV form with interesting, 3-dimensional characters who all developed during the series run. Proved that Sci-fi could be intelligent as well as entertaining.
Lost - took what B5 did and really ran with it. Although it was too hard to follow week-to-week on TV, watching the whole series back-to-back on DVD was MUCH better and despite what the majority of people thought I really liked the ending.
Stargate SG-1 (up to end of Season 8) - again, a series that concentrated on characters and ongoing development rather than visual effects. SG1 demonstrated that sci-fi could contain humour and drame without making it look silly. Took its time to get into its stride but once it got there it made it count.
Star Trek (TOS and TNG ONLY) - Well, it's Trek, innit?? It has its flaws and these days pales in comparison to some series out there, but it's still the Original Sci-fi Series that started it all. I'll watch them any time, but don't sit me in front of DS9, Voyager or Enterprise - they're not Trek.
Firefly - Again, characters that live and breathe behind that screen and that you start to care about before they get wrenched viciously away.
Star Trek: The Next Generation
Star Trek: Deep Space 9
Stargate SG-1, Atlantis, Universe
Stargate SG-1 movies
Star Wars (all)
Aliens / Prometheus
Dune, Children of Dune
that's all I can think of off the top of my head
i love starwars, far scape, FIREFLY,bsg old and new, flash gordon just to name a few
I would say....The Ender's Game series. really wish they make it to movies.
Alien-a true masterpiece and Aliens-the greatest sequel ever created.Firefly and Serenity. The Last Starfighter, 2001 A Space Odyssey and the original Star Wars movies of course. Look everybody the spaceships aren't shiny or pointy!!!
Star Trek and Heroes.
Alien and Aliens, also the first Predator movie. The subsequent sequals seemed a little lacklustre to me.When I was a kid however, I used to love Space 1999, and the Bionic man.
Star Trek and Babylon. I wonder if the old series are still available online.
All the Aliens movies (including the AVP1+2) are my favorites, with Aliens being my most favorite.
Movies and series like startrek and starwars are also on my list
Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, Joe 90 , Stingray, U.F.O., Fireball XL5, Supercar, Terrahawks, Quantum leap, Lost In Space, Land Of The Giants, Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea, Star Trek, Dr Who are just a few that spring to mind.
Thunderbirds! Marionetion rules!sign1
But I won't forget Star Trek (all of them, movies and series), Invaders (remember that pinky finger?), Ultraman, Ultraseven, Battlestar Galactica (both)...
If I may, there are lots of movies (not tv shows) that caught my eye: ALIENS, of course, LIFEFORCE (vampires from space!), and EVENT HORIZON (sci-fi AND terror...), just to begin with... BTW, anyone knows about a good paper model from "Event Horizon" rescue ship? It's awesome!
P.S. I really liked TERRA NOVA!
I love the aliens movie! I watched the second today.
Stargate is another favorite of mine, it's a shame thst SG:U has been abandonned
