Recommended Posts

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: http://www.popularmechanics.com/cult...i-fi-tv-shows/ 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.
