Which Show to watch?

I am going to start a TV show, deciding which one...

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Farscape
The Dead Zone
Babylon 5
StarGate, SG-1

Which one should I watch, DS9 and Babylon 5 I have watched at least 90 percent of the shows, the other ones I have just seen a few episodes.

Since you've already seen most of DS9 and Babylon 5, my vote goes to Farscape.

Exactly this. As serialized shows, DS9 and B5 benefit from a full viewing (B5 especially as it's the more heavily serialized show).

And Farscape is just great.

If I rewatch DS9 and B5, I might hit the high notes on the respective seasons 1,,,,

Yup, that's my recommended order as well. SG1, IMHO, is much better as a marathon, then watching weekly.

NOT THIS! Seriously, it's the only HBO show I've watched that I ultimately WOULDN'T recommend. Not enough stuff gets answered before the show got axed, so it just ends up being a bizarre, vague, and confusing series. I liked the setting, but that's about it.

Stargate: SG1 is a solid, fun show. It goes on for many years, and gets a satisfying ending.
