What's your favourite Sci-Fi Show

Click on the TV series poster you wanna go to. So if you click on a certain tv series, a new screen will be opened where the homepage of that series will be opened. You then also have access to the Episode Guide, Infopage, Gallery, Characters and Blu-Ray page via the menu above.

 

TV Series are now ordered by decades, this makes it easier to look for your favourite series, you can check out the latest tv series much easier also. I also tagged the TV series which are in development so you know right away these series are in a development stage at this time. There also are a few TV Series which haven't been tagged as "development" but aren't on TV yet, these are (almost) certain to become a TV Series. When a TV series bridges two decades I added them in the decade it was created. So for instance: Stargate SG-1 is in the 1990-1999 decade overview and Doctor Who 2005 is in the 2000-2009 decade overview. I hope this makes this page more user friendly. I think I converted them all but I will check them all once more. If you miss one, please let me know below in the comments.

    I saw Smallville on that list but not Birds of Prey. It was short lived but not that bad.

    Hi Michael, first of all, thanks for visiting and commenting!
    Regarding your question, my idea was to really only sci-fi, of course that is not so easy as being said. I did not also wanted to do fantasy frankly because, although I like it, it's sci-fi that I love and because I would not be able to handle it anymore! :-) I'm doing this alone.

    Of course one can say, why is Smallville sci-fi and Birds of Prey or Batman not. Well in Smallville's case, Clark is an alien, so for me it's surely sci-fi. But perhaps you are right, perhaps I should add series like Birds of Prey and others who definately are "in between" sci-fi and fantasy. Dou you think Batman as sci-fi or more fantasy? It will always be difficult to do and everybody thinks about it differently. I will have to think about a little bit more! ;-)

    chique site

    I like the menu above, it introduced me to some fun series I didn't know about like outcasts and pioneer one. You have been adding a lot of series though and it's becoming a bit unwieldy I think.
    Have you considerd adding a line breaking the shows in decades or maybe some filtering options if possible?

    zo is het ook wel leuk om in te grasduinen natuurlijk ;)

    Hello repgate, first of all thank you for visiting and commenting! :-) it's a lot of work, I know it's not perfect, especially the series menu above. In this case it's more the fault of the provider (jimdo), it does not allow further levels. So I have menu: Series, beneath that the tv shows and beneath that tabs with the episode guide, info, gallery etc. I cannot go deeper so if I would add another level, right after series, I would loose the episode guide, info, gallery level, which I believe is too important.

    What I have considered though, and perhaps you can tell me is this, as a visitor, would it be helpful, to just hide the series menu so the visitors go to the various series via the pictures on the page itself, this is in alphabetical order. I would love to hear from you about this. :-)

    tot gauw hopelijk :-)

    Additional: repgate, I just now removed the menu above the series, from now on people can search for their favourite show only in alphabetical order. Perhaps I will re-arrange it in the future like you suggested for instance, per decade, but for now Alphabatical order is just fine I think.

    Hey, thanks for replying

    Ik ben niet vertrouwd met jimdo of webdesign in het algemeen helaas, ik heb zelf eens geprobeerd op jimdo, ik snap wat je wil zeggen.
    Ik ben nu pas uw mobiele versie aan het proberen daar zien de posters er goed uit.

    First of all, awesome site! This is a great place to pick up both new and old scifi offerings. I'd been looking for a good list of scifi shows so thank you for this.

    I do have a question though: Why isn't Person of Interest on your list? It seems like a comprehensive list otherwise. I understand that during the first season it mostly functioned as a procedural with small pepperings of scifi (i.e., glimpses of the AI known as the Machine) but as the show has gone on, it's become decidedly more and more scifi in its leanings. Hard scifi, at that. And the third season, in my opinion, has outgrown its procedural trappings (except for the occasional episode) and has gone completely scifi since it's dealing with issues of multiple sentient AIs, transhumanism, and the encroaching Singularity.

    Anyway, except for that one quibble, awesome job!

    Hello Nix, thank you for visiting, commenting here, really appreciate the complements :-)

    Regarding your comment about POI, one of my current favourites also, it's not always cut and clear which one belongs and which one doesnt in my opinion, certainly I've been thinking about POI also to add this here on the page for a long time and messages from people like you only help me more deciding in it's favor. Recently I also added "The Pretender" one of my all time favourite shows when the creator of the series confirmed, according to him, has certain sci-fi elements. That was enough for me.

    So yes good point, I will add POI in the coming weeks, if you have more suggestions...as I said, it's sometimes difficult to catagorize a TV series, if it's sci-fi, fantasy or otherwise.

    Regards

    Nix (Wednesday, 30 April 2014 16:27)

    Re: adding POI, awesome! And thinking about it... You're right - POI's premise gets a little hard to differentiate from current reality (especially with the whole Snowden/NSA/Prism thing) which is probably the source of all the "Is POI scifi?" debate (of which I've seen several in various online forums). The good thing about it is that the whole issue has prompted the show's creators and writers to up the ante, increasing the scifi elements to keep ahead of reality, as well as getting Nolan to straight up declare that the show's overarching plot is the approach to Singularity (and the ramifications and philosophy behind non-anthropomorphic, almost alien-like AI). Here's a very good and interesting interview with Nolan and Plageman on the nature of the show and the Machine: http://io9.com/person-of-interests-producers-tell-us-what-the-machine-1498754032 .I'm glad that the show's done waffling with whether it wants to be a crime procedural or serialized scifi.

    The Pretender is also one of my all time faves (even though I saw it well after it was over) and I think I'd be hard-pressed to say whether it's a scifi show either. Even though it has pseudo-scifi elements like Jarod kind of being a genetic superhuman and the Centre being almost like Manticore from Dark Angel, I wouldn't have classified it as scifi until I read your comment about the creators confirming it as part of the genre. I suppose I always thought of it as like Dark Angel but with all the true scifi elements removed.

    As for other suggestions... The easiest to classify would probably be Charlie Brooker's brilliant anthology series Black Mirror. It's a recent one, first came out 2011 and currently has 2 seasons/series (3 episodes each). It deals with some rather thought-provoking and sometimes scary ramifications of technology's effect on life. Think an updated Twilight Zone combined with POI's paranoiac tendencies.

    As for others that aren't on your list, well, there's Lois and Clark? I think that definitely counts. And what about The Dead Zone tv series? I think it's comparable to The Early Edition. If EE counts, I think DZ should especially since the main character's a precog and there were a few episodes that dealt with people of other abilities being used to hunt for terrorists. The religious overtones muddle the classification but it's only a bit more overt than the same elements that can be found in Early Edition and John Doe. And probably a few of the other shows on the list.

    Would Awake and The Walking Dead count? The former is a one-season show about a detective surviving a car accident that leads to him switching realities (when he loses consciousness, either by sleeping or being knocked unconscious) between one where his wife is alive but his son is dead and one where it's vice-versa. The show finished its first season (only 13 episodes, I think) but failed to elaborate on whether the reality-switching is actually happening or if the detective has simply gone insane from grief. Some clues like information he can't get from one reality but can get in another (and use it to solve a case) seem to lend credence to reality-switching but it could also be that he's simply making everything up in his head whilst he's in a coma ala Life On Mars. The creators, after the end of the show, have said that no theory is wrong (except, possibly, for the dream while in a coma one) but they never really offered a real answer. Which I kind of prefer, actually, given that the after-show answer offered by the producers of John Doe was terribly disappointing to me.

    I've seen The Walking Dead listed as scifi on some sites. I'm not sure how to classify it, honestly. I'm... leaning on it being scifi. Maybe. It doesn't really deal with the scifi elements in its world (it's all about gore and character drama) but that it has scifi elements is undeniable, I think. It's post-apocalyptic (like Jericho, and even Falling Skies and Revolution but those are more overt scifi) and a virus (artificially created or not) brought it about. Or should it just be left to the horror fantasy genre? Right, I think this one's really muddled.

    Whew, sorry about the long post. Got a little carried away there. :P

    Salut

    Well Nix you wrote quite an extensive paper! :-) You bring up quite a lot possiblities regarding tv series, some of them I agree, some of them not really, but as I said, if it's not hard sci-fi, it's often difficult to catagorize. Lois & Clark, certainly. I think you have a point too with Awake. I have thought about TDZ before, but I keep thinking Paranormal. TWD, of course has some of the same elements as the TV series you mentioned but for me it's not sci-fi, gotta draw a line somewhere! :-) I never seen Black Mirror, I will look it up. Im gonna add POI, Awake & L&C in the coming weeks too. :-) Have to think about TDZ a bit longer.

    thanks for taking the time ....again! :-)

    Nix (Friday, 02 May 2014 20:10)

    Heh, yeah, sorry about that. Thanks for reading to the end. About TDZ, yeah I see your point. It's hard to draw the line between science fiction's evolved human and the paranormal stuff. Hmmm, going over the show in my head it sort of does fall more towards the paranormal. There's some sort of afterlife and anthropomorphic personification of death in one episode and, of course, there's the whole religious harbinger thing with Stillson along with a whole lot of god talk. Religious stuff mixes terribly with scifi, imo (which is why I absolutely hated how the whole Jacob plot in Lost turned out). Yeah, I think I'm fine now if you leave TDZ out.

    Glad you're adding the others. Thanks again!

    SF Series And Movies (Sunday, 25 May 2014 10:54)

    @Nix, in case you are still checking it, I removed "Awake" after reading the comments of the creator which says: "Killen described Awake as neither supernatural drama nor science fiction. He contrasted it with the Fox television series Fringe, claiming that Fringe "asks you to delve into sci-fi"; Awake was described as a "human story", with the crimes on the show emphasizing that level."

    Love the site, and the I see there's a few of my favourites have made it onto the list.

    One that appears to have been left off is "This Is Not My Life", a Kiwi show reminiscent of the Prisoner. (On the subject of Kiwi shows, not sci-fi but Fantasy, "Almighty Johnsons" is a great series.

    Thxs for the complements, I am not so active at the moment on the website but I will look into it soon.

    Alex (Monday, 08 September 2014 16:33)

    First I like to echo what most people are saying and say that this is the website we were looking for because you include only the show where the sci fi part actually matters (except Tru Calling?.... I saw your explanation on the page).
    Unlike for example the Showtime show Outlander which is closer to The Tudors despite time travel being present in the book/pilot

    Anyway I didn't think it was posible but you are missing a great show Invasion:Earth
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invasion:_Earth_%28TV_series%29
    The effects look a bit dated but the story is great

    Also Riverworld.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riverworld_%282010_film%29

    Not a tv series but a pilot (broadcast as a tv movie) that was not picked but I see Rewind there so I guess it counts

    Hello Alex, thanks for your visit and the time taken to write your comment. I think it's always a tricky thing, when is it sci-fi of more fantasy. In the past I did remove TV series because they appeared to be sci-fi but later turned out to be fantasy of more supernatural. I always tried to keep this site as clean as possible but is not always according to everyone's opinion.

    Regarding Invasion_Earth, wasn't that a British series? I seen a few episodes long time ago, yeah sure there are still TV series I did not add because I don't know it or simply because I forgot about it or something.

    Riverworld leaves a soar taste in my mouth, my god I thought that was really bad. Bought it, watched it, sold it right away. I don't remember much of it anymore but wasn't this more fantasy?

    Anycase, thanks again for visiting.

    regards
