Re: Why is humor lacking in so much modern sci-fi?
Most of them are fantasy, which was not addressed in the thread title. If he had said "sci fi and fantasy" your list would be relevant.
The conversation seems to have gone to SF&F in general rather than just sci-fi. But Doctor Who, Falling Skies, Fringe.
It's all right, children. Life is made up of meetings and partings. That is the way of it. I am sure that we shall never forget Tiny Tim, or this first parting that there was among us.
