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.
