I’ve loved the science fiction genre since I was a kid. So many exciting possibilities. Alternate realities, biopunk, aliens—I want to devour it all. Today I’m here to share a list of my top 8 favorite science fiction shows (in no particular order).
- The Bionic Woman – This was my very first introduction to the science fiction genre and remains my number 1 favorite. When I was a kid, my mom loved this show. I grew up watching the reruns. In fact, I was so enthralled by it, I was even Jamie Summers two Halloweens in a row (not that anyone knew who that was, lol)
- Futurama – Anyone who knows me will tell you that I’m a sucker for animation. I live for cartoons. When Futurama came along? Sci-fi and a cartoon? Um, yes please! I know a lot of people weren’t thrilled with the later stories, but I personally loved how they ended Fry and Leela’s story.
- The Flash – I’m loving how the story is progressing on the Flash. I still need to play catch-up on this season, but I can’t wait to see what they do next!
- Dollhouse – Joss Whedon can pretty much do no wrong in my eyes. Though the second season was nowhere near as awesome as the first (to me, anyway) Dollhouse has a cemented place in my heart.
- Fringe – I’ll be honest. This one took me a season to get into. But once it dug deeper into the alternate reality portion of the plot, I was utterly hooked.
- Sliders – Sliders… What’s there to say? This show was awesome – and so prematurely pulled from the lineup! The show had some of the most amazing alternate dimension set ups that I’ve seen to this day. I miss it!
- Orphan Black – This show gets better with each season. Tatiana Maslany is so seriously amazing, and the growing storyline has me completely enthralled.
- Firefly – Stellar cast, fantastic dialog—and gone way too soon!
How about you guys? What’s your favorite science fiction show—past or present?
