  • Popular Mechanics' Top 50 Sci-Fi Shows of All Time

    I ran across an article today, Popular Mechanics' Top 50 Sci-Fi shows of all time. It's an interesting list, which I have some disagreement with, which I will talk about in a subsequent post. The article is here: but I'll post the list here for quick reference. What do you think of this list? Is there something there you think shouldn't be? Is there a show you think they missed that should be included?

    I liked Sliders, but I don't see how it ranks in the top 20. Quantum Leap should rank higher than Sliders. Also, I'd rank Star Trek: The Original Series higher than Next Generation. I'm glad to see Lost In Space on the list and personally, I'd rank it higher, but that's personal bias talking. I'd have liked to see Voyage To The Bottom of the Sea on the list too. I'm a sucker for Irwin Allen shows, if you hadn't noticed. I'm sure I'll give this more thought and post again.
