    Best SciFi: The Empire Strikes Back. Featuring Yoda and R2-D2. My all-time favourite. Ever.

    Best Action-SciFi: Terminator 2, Aliens.

    Best Thriller-SciFi: Alien. No-one heard me scream in front of my TV screen. :cool:

    Best Fantasy: Sleepy Hollow. Great atmosphere, splendid actors, marvellous sets, and and and...

    Best fairy tale: E.T., Close Encounters. Timeless beauty. And Yoda and R2-D2 are with them.

    Ultimate horror: Poltergeist. I love the Alien poster on the wall in the children's room (but hey, were they supposed to see that movie at their age???) and the Hoth playset. And R2-D2 is there (again; I hope he got paid for that cameo :mrgreen:).

    Best SciFi TV show: Star Trek: TNG. "Macbeth" and TNG vastly improved my English! Best episode ever: "The Best of Both Worlds". Nothing has ever come ANY close to that episode. Nothing before and nothing after. They really should have saved this one for the movies!

    Best space saga: Babylon 5. Or DS9? Hmmm.... No, B5. But DS9 was good, too! :mrgreen:

    All-time Sci-Fi TV show favourite: TOS Battlestar Galactica. What else. No R2-D2, but Cylons. I simply LOVE it. In good times and in bad times. There is no comparison.

    And these ones can be watched over and over again without getting tired of them: The Time Machine (with Rod Taylor), Planet of the Apes, Back to the Future, Iron Man, Spider Man, Batman Returns, King Kong (old and new), Lord Of The Rings.

    Far too many to mention, and so instead of re-list things anything already posted I'd add - Predator 2, Silent Running, The Black Hole, A Boy and His Dog, Dark Star, Total Recall (first version), Invasion of the Body Snatches (all versions), Repo Man, The Hidden, John Carpenter's The Thing and They Live.

    Millions more of course but that's a start at a contribution.

    misfits of science? one of the unsung series of the 80's. did anyone like the the series called "the dresden files"?
  10. jherazob

    jherazob Member

    YES AND YES! :thumb:

    Misfits of Science was awesome, a comedic take on X-Men style superpowers. Intro:

    The Dresden Files was very roughly based on the book series. The books are better (and so many to be yet written) but the series is charming and great.

    Wow, none of you love Red Dwarf enough to mention it? Am I the only one?

    I have never seen it before, apart from one or two clips (i remember the toaster but i'm sure there's one or two more). It looks like i'd enjoy it but it was never accesible back then.

    Battlestar Galactica. The remake, specifically. The original is fun(and I honestly love Galactica 1980, it makes me laugh so hard) but it's like a completely different series, and I like angst and drama and all that good stuff that comes with the remake. Also, I'm a *massive* fan of Michelle Forbes and thus Admiral Cain. The Pegasus arc is my absolute favorite.

    Other than that, Star Trek TNG and DS9, Mass Effect, Alien. I also have developed a serious soft spot for Warehouse 13, although I'm not sure if it really qualifies as sci-fi.

    I would say Stargate Sg1, Voyager, and I know this had nothing to do with space, but The Walking Dead.
