ReapTheChaos: fusillade762: ReapTheChaos: I think they are confusing fantasy with science fiction on several of those.  Off the top of my head: Lost, Jericho, Six Million Dollar Man, Nightrider, Life on Mars, Dollhouse and probably a couple I'm not thinking of don't really fall into sci-fi in my opinion.

If you don't think Dollhouse is science fiction then you and I have vastly different definitions of the term.

Ok, so the 3 minutes of the show where they implanted the personality was science fiction, and the other 42 minutes was action. Better?

You didn't really watch the show, did you? Just because something doesn't take place in space doesn't mean it's not science fiction.

Saiga410: TOS was the most western of all pseudo ScyFi.

If only there was a succinct way to put that.  Maybe like calling it "Bonanza to the planets".  Yeah, that's it.

Barricaded Gunman: Also, am I the only one who liked "Seven Days"?

Great show.  I wish it had hung around a bit longer.

Other fun Sci-Fi shows I haven't seen mentioned yet: The Sci-Fi Channel's Invisible Man and Brisco County Jr.

Yes, Brisco was Sci-Fi.

Alphax: Mikey1969: swankywanky: has anyone mentioned an obscure, short tun sci-fi series not on the list yet?

/yeah baby

Holy shiat, that may very well be the show that I have been trying to remember for about 25 years now... Late 70's, short run, space show, etc... This might just be it. Thank you.

Early 70's, I think.  I just have the vaguest memories of a spaceship that swallowed other spaceships.

don't think it's the same - that pic I posted was from an (very) early 80's show called Salvage-1.  Andy Griffin is a junk yard owner who has a dream of going to the moon to get all the space junk that had been left there by the lunar landings.  He builds a spaceship out of junk and finds a new fuel source to power the thing and goes to the moon.

/no shiate
//and it lasted two seasons!
///there were still a LOT of drugs back then

Dr. Who is NOT better than The Twilight Zone. Their rankings should be switched.

Quantum Apostrophe: NeoCortex42: It had it's stumbles

So did that apostrophe.

In an alternate timeline, that's the correct usage.

You probably would have come out with a better ranking of the shows if you had used a bingo counter to assign them at random.
