Anyone ever watch Shadow Raiders also known as War Planets? Now that was a great space show.

Everyone who's ever seen it seems has great things to say about THE INVADERS. Me, I've never seen it but I sure do wish I could.

 Buggedout (and shudder)

I will never forget that episode of UFO where a UFO scientist's wife goes missing, a UFO is shot down and the post mortem of the alien reveals that he has some of the missing wife's organs implanted in him. Thanks, ulthar, some karma for you.  TeddyR

I love the OS Star Trek, Dr Who and the eerie The Omega Factor which sometimes crossed the line from outright horror to science fiction.

TOS - I'm loving the remastered version they are showing in syndication.

DS - The hands down best of all the modern Trek's, but it never gets it's due.  I'm watching it over on DVD.

Babylon 5 - A great space opera of the old pulp style.  I just watched it all again on DVD at the end of last year.

I also think Firefly would be going strong if Fox had not screwed the show over. It's a great show.

And you thought Trek isn't cool.

Space: Above and Beyond is another one I enjoyed and which FOX killed by jumping it all over the schedule.

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.

If you've never seen Firefly ... you need to if you like space shows. What happened to that show is a shame, they aired it out of order (The DVD's are in order) they didn't even air the last 3 shows. They moved it around and you could never find it and they preempted it about every other week when you could. So it was canned after 14 eps. then the movie took forever to get made to tie up the loose ends. It never had a chance and was unique as the old west meets space travel.

I think that it was killed off by some of the absurd story arcs.  I mean, do you remember the episode with Coolio?

I voted for the original Doctor Who, Farscape, and The Prisoner (other). Farscape was great until the last season, and the wrapping up miniseries was rushed in tone, and had a few cliches I hated, but at least they got to finish. I hate when stories take the "get back to contemporary Earth" path like the last season, since we are so outclassed in technology, you write yourself into a corner or have to invoke magic or sometimes similar. I loved how they played around with cliches of scifi stories, like the body swapping ep where characters of different genders seized the opportunity to "explore". My kind of space opera for not playing by the rules most of the time.

The Prisoner is awesome in it mix of 60s pop spy culture, surrealism and Kafkaesque paranoia.

Doctor Who was fun and quirky and at its best made me look past the cheap effects and other limits.

I like many of the other series, some more than others. Firefly gets an honorable mention since it was so great the way it was going, but doesn't get the vote since it never got show what they could do over time. B5 I tried to get into, but the first season was shaky and it got moved around on the syndicated schedule so it was hard to find, the jump to cable was weird too. I wish Crusade had gotten more of a shot, it had potential, especially the ep. poking fun of the X-Files, since I never that show much. I like the Treks up until half way through DS9. 

Red Dwarf was a hoot, so glad our PBS station ran it for so long, too bad I began to take it for granted they would keep airing it.

I'd still like to actually see if Blake's 7 is all it's cracked up to be. Never seen more than clips of it.

blah blah stuff blah blah obscure pop culture reference blah blah clever turn of phrase blah blah bad pun blah blah bad link blah blah zzzz.....

I never got into any of the major ones, but my three favorite space shows (and I never really even watched these all that much) are Red Dwarf, Tripping the Rift, and Farscape.

Star Trek, TNG is still my all-time favorite of the franchise, with DS9 coming in a close second.  Though, the early episodes of TNG left a little to be desired.  The whole look and feel of the show when it started just didn't seem right.  I hate to say it, but the point when it got better was after Tasha Yar died. 

I also like the new Doctor Who a lot.  I was afraid it would jump the shark after Christopher Eccelston left after just one season, but luckily David Tennant has really stepped up, and proven himself worthy of the role.

Farscape: Great, fun Sci-fi series with PUPPETS!!  I met some of the people in charge of special effects [it was filmed in Australia] and they were all really interesting, passionate and fun people.

Stargate [Both forms]: Merging my love of Ancient Mythology with Sci-Fi made this show genius.  Lagged off near the end [Ori bullocky] but I can't help but loving the entire thing.  At one stage was my favourite show in general, but it's become harder and harder to keep track [they don't screen it here really at all]

Firefly: If it wasn't for the charisma of the characters, this show would have slipped by me.  Never really screened here, I picked up the DVDs on a whim from the Uni Library because it was by Joss Whedon, and haven't looked back since.

I think I'd really like Battlestar Galactica [new series] but just haven't been able to watch a full episode, so it's passed me by really.

Enjoy various Star Trek joints but none really took me in like the above selections did.  Dr Who is also good for an occasional watch.

Oh and how could I finish this up without even making mention of the excellent and hilarious Red Dwarf... Thumbup Thumbup

Star Trek TOS without a doubt.  I love Sci-fi B-movies of the 50's and 60's, and every episode of the original Star Trek series is like watching a great mini B-movie of that era.  It's great stuff.  I can't stand any of the other Star Trek series', and find them to be painfully dull and boring.  The "Trekkies" out there make a big deal out of how the later series' are closer to Gene Roddenberry's original vision for the show.  If that is true, I think the network execs were right when they told him to make changes!

I picked Star Trek TOS, Star Trek Deep Space 9, and Star Trek Enterprise. I liked the original because I am a sci-fi fan and a series with a starship was just what the doctor ordered. The effects were about what you'd expect from a 60's TV series, but the stories were good and so was the acting. I was disappointed when it was cancelled. I started watching DS9 because it started coming on at 4:30 AM Monday thru Friday and I was up and didn't leave for work till 6:00 AM, eventually this caught me up to the weekly episodes and I started watching in the evening too. Enterprise is one I like because I find the whole idea of being the first humans to really explore the galaxy fascinating (didn't mean to sound like Spock), it's something I wish I could do, and the effects are quite good, that also makes it enjoyable for me. It's less enjoyable for the wife, every Monday the Sci-Fi network shows 4 episodes back to back, watching these sometimes makes the little woman a little crazy.

 There is one other, when I was much younger on Saturday mornings I would watch "Commando Cody, Sky Marshall of the Universe". This guy had a rocket ship, ray guns, a rocket pack, used to fly around in a black leather jacket with a pair of rockets on the back, wore a pointed helmet to be aerodynamic. Used to fight with enemy aliens on the ground, in the air, and in outer space, I really loved that show. 

Science claims that hydrogen, because there is so much of it, is the building block of the universe, I dispute this, there is plenty more stupidity, and that is the building block of the universe.  Frank Zappa
