Re: Ripping the supernatural out of science fiction.

As far as we know, Lost has no supernatural elements.

And if you assume the Prophets are really just wormhole aliens, DS9 is totally within the realm of science as well.

I haven't seen it, but I suppose that qualifies Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, since it is a TV series after all?
That definitely counts.
Farscape had Zhaan, a Delvian priest who displayed many mystical abilities. It also had people switching bodies, etc... (I love Farscape dearly but there's a lot of supernatural elements to be found).
Zhaan's abilities could have been natural for her species. Switching bodies isn't inherently supernatural.

"Supernatural" is different from "silly pseudo-science" - the latter abounds in TV sf.
