    Hi, just a little survey… 🙂

    What are your ten (or more, or less ;)) favourite sci-fi shows? Please list in order of your preference (10 -1 scale). Note: if some shows hold the same value to you, you can rank them the same. E.g. at number 2: Galactica 1980 and Enterprise.

    Thanks. 😀

    Edited to include least favourite shows (10-1 scale) and reedited for excessive typos.

    So your favourite and least favourite show will get 10 points; second favourite and least favourite 9 points etc. for easy calculation. And rememeber, this survey is hardly definitive or scientific, so…

    I’ve given your number one choice 10 points, your second choice 9 points down to one for your tenth favourite show and added up the points for each show from your lists (with the help of Excel — really it took very little time). Of course I could have done this any number of ways… So Babylon 5 is the most popular using this method (I may have made some mistakes here):

    Babylon 5 (62 points)
    Star Trek (TOS) 53
    Lexx 44
    Farscape 25
    Star Trek (Next Gen.) 24
    The Prisoner 24
    Red Dwarf 19
    The Twilight Zone (all original series?) 18
    Space: Above and Beyond 17
    Stargate SG-1 (16)
    Robotech 15
    Outer Limits (old) 15
    Futurama 12
    X-Files 11
    V 11
    Space 1999 11
    Battlestar Galactica 11
    Quantum Leap 10
    Lost In Space. 10
    Earth Final Conflict 10
    Blake’s 7 (10)
    Star Trek (Voyager) 9
    Reboot 9
    Gundam Wing 9
    Tripping the Rift 8

    UFO 4
    Sapphire and Steel 4
    Megazone 4
    Manimal 4
    Capt. Harlock & The Queen of A Thousand Years 4
    The Adventures of Brisco County Junior 3
    Sapphire and Steel 3
    I-Man (Sci-FI USA version) 3
    Angel 3
    Twin Peaks (“does that count?”) [it counts if you think it counts :D] 2
    The Thunder Birds 2
    Dexter’s Lab 2
    Tales From the Crypt 1
    Seaquest DSV… 1
    G Force- one of the best bad guys!!! 1
    Buck Rogers 1

    Now here’s my scifiish list (not included in the results of the last list):

    1. The Twilight Zone (original)
    2. The Prisoner
    3. First Born (aka The Gor Saga –, a miniseries)
    4. The Outer Limits (original)
    5. Dr. Who (Pertwee particularly)
    6. Star Trek TOS
    7. Lexx
    8. UFO
    9. The Invaders
    10. Space 1999

    Very honourable mention goes to: Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Red Dwarf, The Day of the Triffids, Cold Lazarus, Lost In Space, Babylon 5, V, X Files, and a whole lot more. Really, my list is kind of arbitrary, the honourable mentions could it into my top ten easily and the order could be played around with considerably.

    BTW, I remember AutoMan, and Manimal unfortunately. 😉 Though it did give us one of televison’s most memorable lines: “I am not an animal, I am a free Manimal!”

    Oh, and I’ll say it here, welcome to the forums DaveCole, Sidhecafe, and IblisGinjo. 😀

    ok

    1. Babylon 5 (including Crusade)/Buffy the Vampire Slayer
    2. The hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
    3. The Prisoner/Ultraviolet
    4. Deep Space Nine/Blake’s Seven
    5. Angel
    6. Farscape
    7. The X-Files
    8. ghormenghast (a miniseries)
    9. Lexx
    10. Star Trek; the Next Generation/Twin Peaks

    So I have three miniseries of great genius, and am I the only one who thinks a second series of Ultraviolet should have been made?
    Both No. 1s, the Prisoner and Blake’s 7 have FANTASTIC finales, surreal, beautiful, completely unexpected or just gorgeously tragic, and sadly i have included 2 members of the Star Trek franchise, though the 10th is mainly for Picard/Data, and DS9 because it was genuinely funny and at least tried to be complex rather than just relocating 50s Westerns to space.

    There was a Gor mini series???? ❗
    I had no idea…. I think the one I read was “Slaves of Gor” all about earth women kidnapped to become sex slaves…. 😈
    That was back in high school. Any one else read that????
    And who did the mini series? When?

    I read quite a few of the Gor (counterearth) novels when I inherited them from my Grandfather, but I gave up in the end because they just got worse and worse.

    My friend and I used to read Slaves of Gor outloud to each other and laugh! It was like the Story of O just pulp scifi!!!! couldn’t help but love it for the sheer schlock value!!! Like Samuel Delaney without any of the philsophical discourse at worse case scenario.

    The Top Ten List is like a history of the tv shows I grew up with!!!

    Nice to see some shows that even forget about alot!

    I’ve also read the Gor books, kinda bad but enjoyable. Was wondering if anyone else would remember those.

    Monkey business…

    Actually, First Born as a BBC made show only in three 45 minute parts about a human-gorilla hybrid who is raised by the scientist who created him — he doesn’t realise that he’s half ape (shoulda guessed with a name like Gor). You could say it’s part soap opera too, he has a fling with his human half-sister (not realising that she is a blood relative — they were raised in the same family) who gets pregnant. I found the story very moving. Was based on a novel called Gor’s Saga.

    Anyway, here’s the updated list (wish I’d originally alpahabetised it in descending order):

    Babylon 5 (72 points)
    Star Trek (TOS) 53
    Lexx 50
    The Prisoner 41
    Farscape 30
    Star Trek (Next Gen.) 30

    Yeah, what a shame! 🙁 😉 If it had been about that, then it would have definitely topped my list! 😀

    I haven’t read it to tell you the truth, but the author is Maureen Duffy — had to look it up and came across an interesting webpage on genetic engineering (including GE in sci-fi) which very briefly mentions the book and show (CLICK!)

    Thanks for that, I will read that later when I’m not at work. 😯 😀
    it actually has some baring on a story I’m trying to work on presently.

    The books were written by John Norman (I counted nine under a thick blanket of dust on my top cupboard)

    I seem to remember once seeing a scary website about the philosophy of Counterearth.

    Rather than starting a new thread: What are your 10 least favourite sci-fi shows? And if you haven’t included your ten favourites, please do so.

    So your favourite and least favourite show will get 10 points; second favourite and second least favourite 9 points… etc. for easy calculation.

    Favourite Sci-Fi has to be:

    1) Babylon 5
    2) Farscape
    3) Red Dwarf
    4) Futurama
    5) Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
    6) Outer Limits (Old!)
    7) Stargate SG-1
    8 ) Star Trek (TOS)
    9) Doctor Who
    10) Land of the Giants (yes I know 🙄 )

    Worst Sci Fi? Eeep…going to get flamed for this!

    1) (worst) – Twin Peaks (Maybe I was too young to enjoy it?)
    2) Dark Shadows (Don’t know if anyone remembers it? Used to be on the Sci-Fi channel in the UK…really enjoyably bad!)
    3) Andromeda
    4) Space Precinct

    Don’t know how many of these count as sci fi and I can’t think of any more! May edit later if I think of some!

    n5-Kopele’s topic put me in mind of this old one. Thought it might be fun to cross-reference, and I’ll find that link to the old TV sci-fi poll off the front page later. So, I’m finally getting around to updating the Sad favourites list with the later, yet still old, submissions… (minus Shrapnel_Jack’s cause I’m not totally sure if that list runs best (10) to worst of the best (1), or worst to best). Not really enough responses yet to warrant tallying up the worst of sci-fi TV, methinks.

    Babylon 5 (87 points)
    Star Trek (TOS) 56
    Lexx 56
    The Prisoner 50
    Farscape 39
    Red Dwarf 34
    Star Trek (Next Gen.) 30
    The Twilight Zone (all original series?) 28
    Outer Limits (old) 27
    Space: Above and Beyond 27
    Blake’s 7 (25)
    Stargate SG-1 (20)
    Futurama 19
    Doctor Who 18
    The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy 15
    X-Files 15
    Robotech 15
    Star Trek: DS9 (14)
    Space 1999 12
    V 11
    Battlestar Galactica 11
    Quantum Leap 10
    Lost In Space. 10
    Earth Final Conflict 10
    Star Trek (Voyager) 9
    Reboot 9
    Gundam Wing 9
    Angel 9
    Tripping the Rift 8
    The Chronicle 8
    First Born 8
    Firefly 8
    Ultraviolet 8
    Babylon 5: Crusade 8
    Automan 8
    UFO 7
    Star Blazers 7
    Sapphire and Steel 7
    Invisible Man 7
    The Adventures of Brisco County Junior 7
    Land Of The Giants 7
    Sliders 6
    Outer Limits (90s) 6
    Highlander The Series 6
    Cleopatra2525 (6)
    Captain Scarlett 6
    Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea 5
    Megazone 4
    Manimal 4
    Capt. Harlock & The Queen of A Thousand Years 4
    I-Man (Sci-FI USA version) 3
    Twin Peaks (“does that count?”) [it counts if you think it counts ] 3
    Ghormenghast 3
    Cowboy Bebop 3
    Thunderbirds 2
    Dexter’s Lab 2
    The Invaders 1
    Tales From the Crypt 1
    Seaquest DSV… 1
    G Force 1
    Buck Rogers 1
    Star Treks (any except Voyager) 1 (including Enterprise)

    Kinda disappointed that The Invaders didn’t do better. I imagine that considering the critical and popular success of the reimagined Battlestar Galactica and the new series of Doctor Who there would be significant changes if I were to start it all-over. And I’d like to nominate Charlie Jade. Been some very good sci-fi of late, I think.
