Other than Star Wars, what other Science Fiction genre are you into?

I enjoy Star Trek Voyager, Aliens, Predator and The Terminator. wink

Re: Sci Fi Genre

hmm, let's see. Mel, you pretty much wrote them all for me. Thank you! I also like Stargate and Battlestar Galactica.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

Aliens, Predator, Matrix, The Terminator and Dr. Who, but Star Wars is better than them.
Battlestar Galactica is quite good too, but I don't watch it anymore.
Also, has anybody heard of the books "The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy"? They are good.

Everyone should check out this movie. Too bad only chapter 1's ready.

Read a couple pages, very interesting, but i'm too lazy to go any further than the movie.

I like Firefly a lot. I also watch random sci-fi movies on the Sci-fi network. Like one time when I flipped it on and there was a swat team in the middle of a forrest fighting off velociraptors. Good times.

Good... Bad... I'm the one with the gun.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

Terminator, the Riddick series, Predator, Dr. Who is okay, Firefly and Serenity, and probably the Matrix and Alien movies if I saw them. I also like Victorian steam-punk.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: Sci Fi Genre

Dr. Who is weird. British stuff tends to not be normal. are the Transformers technically sci-fi? cuz it does involve a lot of sci-fi things, so i'd count it. I liked Pitch Black better than Chronicles.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

I like Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Babylon 5, and Transformers.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

Yes, I like the original Tansformers.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

firefly, bsg, anything with time travel-im down with time travel. samurai jack. clone wars cartoon was pretty cool. and give me the old twilight zone any day...most sci-fi themes are ripped from those episodes.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

true. Back to the Future -> best movie that has to do with time-traveling.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

(original) Twlilight Zone. Ghost in the Shell, Terminator, Alien, Predator, Trigun, Star Wars, Transformers(Beast ones), The Dresden Files, War of the Worlds, Tripods Trilogy, Mobile Suit Gundam (Seed sucked bad). Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy(Read most of them but the last one all the way through). Stranger in a Strange Land. Sonic the Hedgehog(Even if it is Furry)

I haven't gotten into Battlestar Galactica, is it worth the watch? (New series)

Cyber-Punk is my favorite genre but it's hard to find.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

Stargate: sg-1 and Atlantis, Star Treks DS9 and TNG, Serenity... Would the old Wild Wild West tv show be considered as slightly sci-fi...?

Re: Sci Fi Genre

if they had lasers, why not? A good sci-fi movie is: Ghostbusters!

@ Maltese, the new BSG is okay, i prefer old school though. Gundam Seed was horrible, G Gundam and Mobile Suit Gundam were my favorites. Any1 here ever watch Outlaw Star? that was a great show.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

I have the entire collection on DVD! Thanks for reminding me!

Too bad they cut episode 23. It explained a lot of the background on the Caster. I think that's the episode.

Wild Wild West is steam-punk, which I consider science fiction. Other examples are nearly everythng written by Jules Verne and H. G. Wells.

I also like Futurama, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, and the old Sonic games. I have only seen a few episodes of the old Twilight Zone, but from what I've seen, it is pretty good.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

Late at night on the Scifi channel here in the U.S. they still play reruns. My library also had some of them on VHS.
Twilight Zone that is. Plus you can buy episodes from Google Video.

Terminator (not 3), Star Wars, Predator, Alien (Only 1 and 2), Matrix (only first one), Stargate sg1.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

When you guys say Twilight Zone, you are of course meaning Rod Sterling's Twilight Zone right? (aka the one in black and white and from the 50s)

Re: Sci Fi Genre

First or Second Season? Maybe you mean the movie.

I have both of the TPB but lack the DVD's.  And I can't say I enjoyed innocence(second movie) but it's still worth the watch even if it did take what the first movie didn't out of the First TPB instead of the second.


Yea, Rod Serling's.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

Well, I guess I own the first movie. I never knew there was a second season and a second movie. Is it possible to get the first season on DVD? It would be cool to own it.

Re: Sci Fi Genre

Ja, from Best Buy, Amazon.com, Borders, Anime-Manga store. Video store. I think most places don't stock the first season any more.
