Re: Is there a series that I have missed?

Also Stargate Universe is worth a shot.
Expect a totally different tone than SG1 and Atlantis though.

Hi there folks! I've been searching the interwebz for quite some time, looking for great sci-fi series. Alas, I can not find anything that interests me anymore that I have not yet seen.

As a last resort, I just had to ask in a forum and I guess that a trek-themed one would be the natural choice for me, since I love the treks )

Time for the question: Have I missed any good series?

The ones I've already watched (and loved) are as follows:
  • Stargate SG-1
  • Farscape
  • Star Trek: TOS
  • Star Trek: TNG
  • Star Trek: VOY
  • Star Trek: DS9
  • Star Trek: ENT
  • Battlestar Galactica (New)
  • Firefly
  • Babylon 5
As you can see, I'm into the whole off-earth, into the future, what if, intelligent - stuff. I also prefer interesting characters over eye-candy action. And don't get me started on todays horrible "sci-fi" (BSG is the exception) with all those younglings as actors (A).

Is there anything interesting left or is my future as grim as I think?

Apologizing if I have missed any relevant threads on the subject.
Give Space: Above and Beyond a try. It might be right up your alley.

Space 1999 is worth a shot.

The original Battlestar Galactica, and Buck Rogers. The latter's first season is set in and aound Earth, but it's the best year of that show.

Space: 1999 is what you're looking for, especially the first series. It captures the strangeness and wonder of deep space better than anything else before or since.

It wasn't set in space but THE 4400 is worth checking out . . . .
Agreed, thats a good show
Tom recommended Quantum Leap, I can recommend that also.
You might also check the first season of Earth: Final Conflict
Rest of the series is not as good as the first season, sadly. Though 2nd was not so bad...dont remember much about the third anymore Last was horrible

another vote for Space:AAB and The 4400. Really, there aren't many series out there you haven't seen. Maybe Earth 2? But it ends with out resolution...

SGU is certainly worth a shot... My favorite show at the moment.

Andromeda
SeaQuest
Original BSG

All ship based sci-fi shows, each has some good episodes, although all three decline more or less as they go along. Watch the pilot episodes and if you're not intrigued just walk away.

Re: Is there a series that I have missed?

Alright, so I haven't been able to reply to you guys yet, but I appreciate the answers and will be looking into most of em! :)

To follow up I'm compiling a list of the suggestions plus eventual comments/questions.

  • Doctor Who - Are we talking from the sixties or the new one? Or maybe all three(?).
  • Buffy - Won't touch that ;) Did actually watch buffy a long time ago but not my stuff anymore. Same goes for dark angel which I never liked.
  • Blake's 7 - Seems nice. I'll definitely look into that.
  • Alien nation - Hmm, well. I'll take a look at the pilot. ;)
  • Space Cops - Awesome name (!!), 'nuff said! :))
  • Red Dwarf - Well, I'll take a look some day x)
  • RedVsBlue - Well... (A) Though hilarious, not really what I was looking for. :)
  • Animated stuff - Definitely comes last on my last to check up. But I'll get there, one day.
  • Lost - Did watch the first season. Got bored by unlimited amount of cliffhangers. I'm not really a fast-paced guy.
  • 4400 - Hmm... nope! :)
  • Space Above & Beyond - Seems awesome!
  • Stargate Atlantis - Hated that series. In my opinion abysmal compared to SG1.
  • Quantum Leap - Not what I was after but I am still intrigued. Could be a gem! :)
  • Stargate Universe - I've been interested since I knew about it. However, I can't stand waiting a week for the next episode and then moths for the next season. Will be checking out when it is all finished and boxed! :)
  • Space 1999 - Haha, read the pilot plot. Won't be trying it right away but it could be nice!
  • Original BG - I'll try it, will a lot be spoiled for me though or are the new series mostly new stuff?
  • Buck Rogers - Seems a bit ehm... I'll get to the pilot some day! ;)
  • Earth: Final Conflict - A must try for me! :)
  • V - Intrigued, nice tip. :)
  • Caprica - How is it? Just a bag full of soap or is there a reason to watch? I've heard bad stuff about it :\
  • Earth 2 - Never heard of but I'm interested already.
  • Andromeda - This actually was next on my "try out" list.
  • SeaQuest - Watched when I was young. My memory of it is that it were... less good. But I'll try it someday.

Again, thank you for taking your time providing suggestions. I appreciate it! :)

Re: Is there a series that I have missed?

old BSG-no, only the names and basic beginning were the same

Andromeda? Really?

Dr Who-I am a fan of the First Season of the new series with Christopher Eggleston. Don't know about the rest but that ROCKED!

Alien Nation-give it 2 eps. It's fun in its way.

4400-missing a bet here

Quantum Leap-is lots of fun

Fair enough, but I would point out that Buffy's spinoff (and a fantastic series in its own right) is just Angel. Dark Angel is a completely unrelated show.
