Re: Why is humor lacking in so much modern sci-fi?

I think the answer has to be "Because there isn't any modern sci-fi"
Under Sci-Fi or Fantasy there are plenty of modern shows. And most aren't humourless and even BSG, the biggest example, had its own dark humour there.

I mean off the top of my head the SF&F shows that are currently on...

Being Human
Doctor Who
Warehouse 13
The Almighty Johnsons
Once Upon A Time
True Blood
Game of Thrones
Fallen Skies

Yes, most of them are more Fantasy than Sci-fi but most of them are also far from humourless.
One more anal-probing gyro-pyro levitating ecoplasm alien anti-matter story and I'm going to take out my gun and shoot somebody.
