    Mine would be Doctor Who followed by Eureka and then Fringe. Didn't Fox cancel Terra Nova and put it up for sale? Last i heard there were no interested buyers which is a shame my wife really like that show. As a result of the cancellation she has vowed to never watch Fox again.

    What no Chuck, Falling Skies or Alphas?

    Doctor Who is my favorite, although I watch most of the others, plus a few that aren't on the list, like Lost Girl.

    i second supernatural, i consider it one of the best sci-fi/horror series ever, better than buffy, angel, charmed, though walking dead comes a close second.

    i also like nikita quite a bit, don't think it qualifies as "sci-fi" though.

  7. Voted for Fringe, have watched many of the other shows but none of them really 'do it for me' for too long.
    In the beginning I had a real love/hate relationship with Fringe, but I'm glad I stuck it out.
    I like the reboot of Dr. Who since 2005 and Love Torchwood (which didn't seem to make the list), but I still have to be in the right mood to watch them.

    Do tell what are the others, I'm a sci-fi nut, so i would no doubt be interested. I just recently found out about Lost Girl I like Kenzie a lot she reminds me of Claudia from Warehouse 13, which is another good sci-fi show it has a good action with just the right mix of comedy.

    Imo Eureka season 3 was better than season 2, and season 4 was better than season 3. Season 5 has started off very good thus far.

    I like Nikita as well. I had my doubts about the show at first, having grown up seeing the Original movie, the US knock-off, and the 1997 TV series Le Femme Nikita. I thought Maggie Q might not be able to pull it off but boy was i wrong she is excellent in the role.in the role.

    Is Warehouse 13 still going?

    I watched a little since the guy who played Donny on Fraser was in it. It wasn't bad but I lost interest and didn't stick with it.

    Yes you are correct.

    It technically should be removed from the list. But I guess it could stay there as an "incomplete" or "unsure" status since it could get picked up somewhere.

    I too liked it.

    My theory is that thing they found during the finale was off a ship from the bermuda triangle Thats the other gateway.

    Warehouse 13 had a cliffhanger season ending so it should be back later this year.

  14. Dang - no space opera. I miss Stargate. Current favorite is Doctor Who, followed distantly by Warehouse 13 and Eureka.

    I agree, but it was a good run while it lasted.

    Warehouse 13 is due to return in mid summer; usually in July, but warehouse 13 may be broadcast earlier either that or Haven. Syfy had to move up Eureka's broadcast schedule to fill in the blank left by Doctor Who which typically airs toward the end of March, but BBC-1 chose to preempt the show in favor of the summer Olympics. I was pretty much thinking the exact thing for Terra nova plot development.

    Do any of you watch Haven? It's has turned out to be a pretty interesting series.

    A few of these in your poll are not S-F at all: fantasy, horror, or something else. ("True Blood", for example.)

    I'm kind of surprised that of the two shows co-produced by Spielberg's company, "Falling Skies" was the one that got renewed. It is pretty weak, familiar, standard issue stuff. Not that "Terra Nova" was especially better, but I would have thought it had a somewhat broader demographic. In any case, Spielberg has a great deal of clout, so his company's tv products generally get the benefit of a couple seasons. That would put them ahead of the general S-F curve: some of this may be due to higher production costs, but it seems no other genre gets cancelled quicker. There have been a number of worthy, early casualties in recent years, with "Journeyman" being possibly the best of them.

    "Awake" is not S-F either. It has been rather well done, though I don't believe this premise is one that could sustain itself over more than a couple seasons.

    "Lost" is really the one recent S-F oriented show I can think of that managed to run a marathon.
    (O.K. . . . the first two Stargate series would also make that short list.)

    Horror and fantasy are usually categorized with sci fi since they are out of our realm in normal day living so they belong in the poll.
