OK I know I left off a lot as there are so many, but these tend to hit near the top of most list. So what is your favorite Sci-Fi top 3 space adventure show. Not your Twilight Zone Sci-Fi but the outer space aliens gonna getcha shows.

For me I tend to like those that are more "realistic" - realistic problems, realistic issues, realistic emotions. Not the prefect world dream vision of some shows.

Which do you like and why?

I never watched any of these show "faithfully" but here my top 3:

Star Trek: TOS-  They used to have marathons with the original and watched them all the time. I always enjoyed the original.

Star Trek TNG: I watched this with my grandmother all the time so it has a special place.

Stargate SG-1: Other one I love to catch on a Sat or Sun. Been getting into Atlantis too.

I like Star Trek DS9 but never caught to many episodes.

Most of all I hate dancing then work,exercise,people,stupidpeople

The two greatest space shows ever. Star Trek: TOS and Star Trek: TNG. I also selected Space:1999.

You have Space 1999, but no UFO???

That's my favorite, btw, so selected "Other."

From the list, I picked ST TOS and TNG.  I probably would have included the new BG if I'd seen more episodes (I've seen two); same comment for Farscape (I've only seen one episode, but it was engaging).  I also like the original BG, too - if I'm in the right mood.

OK, I didn't choose either of these since I haven't seen them yet, but I'm preetty sure that someone's gonna mention Red Dwarf or Lexx eventually.

B-5.  JMS did real well here, creating a thinking SF show, with a nice blending of heavy episodes and light ones.
BG - New.  In the same vein as B-5; a bit too heavy all the time though.
Dr. Who - Original (the various BBC incarnations, I assume).  Good cheese.

Space 1999, close runner up.

well I didn't list mine... so here in no order.

Farscape - (excellent, albeit season 4 was weak.)
Babylon 5 - (Early eps weak and season 5 weak, other than that, great)
Firefly - (Killed off way to soon, this show was going to go be great, then poof gone!)

All of them are extra excellent overall!

I like some of the Star Trek shows mainly, DS9 but the other tend to be to nicy-nice the world is wonderful and we are so enlightened, a bit preachy at times. If I had to put them in order ...

DS9 (All around good show)
TNG (Data's cool and Dr Crusher is HOT)
TOS (Just gotta love the original cast, Kirk, Spock, Bones and Scotty)
Voyager (If it wasn't for 7 of 9 I'd never turn it on, she's from my hometown and she is smokin' hot, the Doc is funny too)
Enterprise (It was so painfully out of place, it's the prequel to TOS and looks more advance. What's up with that?)

Stargate's either one are OK not great but watchable why it went on for 10 years is beyond me.

Many others I excellent too, but damn I got work sometimes.

Speaking of which ....

I picked only one from the list,LOST in SPACE.( I like the cheezy monsters and the chemistry of Dr.Smith,"young Robinson" and Robot.
I'm surprised you didn't list the X Files,or the old OUTER LIMITS.(Both of which I enjoyed as well.)
Others from the past....

Babylon 5 - I loved the story arc format.  Great characters, epic struggle, you name it.  The last season was kind of a waste though.

Battlestar Galactica (original) - Cheesy, yes, but I love those characters and the special effects were better than anything I see today.

Farscape - really loved this show at first, but then at the end of season 3 the Sci-Fi Channel went 9 months without showing a new episode, and I sort of lost interest.

Also Like Star Trek TOS, I grew up with it.  Space 1999 is cool just for how weird it is, it has a lot of boring episodes but the good ones are worth it.  Firefly was pretty cool.  Buck Rogers in the 25th Century is another favorite, total cheese but damn those babes are hot!  All space babes should wear spandex disco jeans - it should be like a law or something  TeddyR  Also liked LEXX, especailly when that blond babe was on it.  I'll add an addenum to the law about space babes and spandex disco jeans - teensy-weensy mini skirts are okay too.

If you mean continuing series, then it's definitely both versions of DOCTOR WHO, although technically the new Doctor really is a continuation of the old and Classic STAR TREK. If you were to include anthology series, OUTER LIMITS and TWILIGHT ZONE (ORIGINALS) would beat everything else period.

I'd go woth Doctor Who, Star Trek DS9 and Babylon 5, though as an admitted Scifi/Space Opera nut, I love all the shows mentioned

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

I agree if there was a Sci-Fi/Space Opera channel that aired nothing but Space Adventure shows and movies only. I'd never get anything done. I have 2 long shelves of nothing but space type movies and shows.

Oh I forgot ... Tripping the Rift - adult cartoon space show, but cool. I think I had dreams about "SIX"

Lagomorphs: menace or underutilized resource?

As Mr. Briggs guessed, someone (namely me) is mentioning Red Dwarf. It is one of my favorite sci-fi shows if for no other reason than it is fun and unique. I actually read the two Red Dwarf novels before I had ever heard of the TV show. I enjoyed them, so when I saw that they were based on a tv show, I had to see it. We had BBC America on satellite, so I got to watch it for a while. It was cool while it lasted, and I'm still considering buying the DVDs.

My other choices were Star Trek: TOS and Star Trek: TNG. I watched a few of the other series, including the original Battlestar Galactica, Space 1999, and the other Star Trek series, but those are my favorites from the list.

Other favorites that are missing from the list are Max Headroom and Buck Rogers (mmmmm, Wilma  TeddyR).
