Sf wars what is best post your lists here


Continuing the discussion from Celebrate Star Trek’s 50th anniversary by revisiting Deep Space Nine:
Post your list of different sf shows in order of quality and remember everyone else is wrong.

A thread to catalog all the other threads
Wells Fargo fires 5,300 employees for opening 2M fake accounts in customers' names

Not sure about order. No movies, just TV. Top of head.

  1. Red Dwarf
  2. Futurama
  3. ST: TOS
  4. Eerie Indiana
  5. Firefly
  6. Galactica
  7. The Man From Atlantis (relax, just kidding)

“remember everyone else is wrong” - nice, that’s excellent.


Just got here, so I haven’t been following the other thread. I assume you are open to other shows than those of the Star Trek universe.

In which case,
Tied for first: Orphan Black, Firefly
Second: Twilight Zone
Tied for third: Battlestar Galactica, Futurama
Tenth: Red Dwarf
100th place: Pretty much everything else - I’m not into most series.
Special mention: Black Mirror (not included because it’s not exactly a series, but that’s just my own classification system. If we are counting it, it would be near the top.)

Oh, and everyone? You’re not all wrong as long as you agree with me.

edited as I’m reminded of shows I liked, in no order:
The Prisoner (Thanks, @d_r )
The Avengers - British 1960’s series (Thanks, @d_r )
Sense8 (Thanks, @popobawa4u)
Mr. Robot (Thanks, faulty memory)


These are the ones that occur to me off the top of my head:

Person of Interest
Babylon 5
BSG: Olmos Edition
Star Trek: Sisko Edition
Star Trek: Picard Edition
Stargate: Teal’c Edition
Terminator: The Cersei Lannister Chronicles
Star Trek: Kirk Edition
Star Trek: Janeway Edition
Star Trek: Hercules Edition
Star Trek: Sam Beckett Edition
Earth: A Series of Final Conflicts


I’m rubbish at watching series, so I’ve missed loads. I did really like Farscape though.

Just because they haven’t been mentioned yet, how about Space: Above and Beyond? Space Precinct? SeaQuest DSV?



So heard to decide, but I’ll list ones I like… This isn’t in any order:

Doctor Who
Torchwood: Children of Earth
Star Trek: DS9
Star Trek: TNG
Red Dwarf
Attack on Titan (really? No one likes sci-fi anime)
Kill La Kill
Guren Lagan
The 100 (this is turning out a lot crazier than I thought it would, in a good way)
Star Trek: TOS
Star Trek: Voyager
Black Mirror

We just started a series called Aldnoah.Zero that seems promising.

I know I’m missing some that I have enjoyed at some point, so I guess I’ll edit.


psycho pass, its not on your list so I can only assume you haven’t seen it.
If you have and still didn’t list it then

Ain’t that the truth. :smile:


I have not seen it. Is is that good? I’ve heard good things about it. We’re mostly on my daughter’s schedule with anime, as it’s her primary fandom right now. I’ll have to put it on the list to eventually see it.


I think so, mind you the violence is pretty graphic, but you’ve got attack on titan on your list so it shouldn’t be a problem.


Far Out Space Nuts
The Man from Atlantis
Mork and Mindy
Ark II


I would add to the above:

The Avengers (not the Marvel ones)
The Prisoner
Special Unit 2
Time Tunnel
Land of the Giants

I’m tempted to add Hard Time on Planet Earth because I liked it at the time, but I suspect it wouldn’t stand up to rewatching. Likewise It’s About Time.

I’m not a big fan of Blake’s 7 , My Favorite Martian, Lost in Space, or Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, but I’m surprised not to see any mentions.


Alien Nation?

I mention it because I just saw that they’re remaking the film.




Let’s get some good actors in there this time! None of this James Caan/Terence Stamp/Mandy Patinkin rubbish.


My Hero


How did I forget The Prisoner? And The Avengers, if we are talking about the Steed/Peel series of the '60’s, often had an SF theme, and was good cheesy fun.

I can see I’ll have to keep editing my original post.


Twilight zone
Cowboy bebop
Psycho pass
Quantum leap
The outer limits
Buck Rogers
Battlestar Galactica


No Quark?



NOT in order of quality, because that depends upon my mood

Doctor Who (my original love)
Blake’s 7
The Prisoner
Sapphire and Steel
Space: 1999 (1st season ONLY!)
Star Trek (TOS & NG)
Ghost in the Shell (SAC & 2nd Gig)

Plutón B.R.B. Nero
Charlie Jade
