I’ve always been a bit of a science fiction fan. Ever since I first watched an episode of Star Trek, I was hooked! And it’s not surprising that the phenomena of Sci-fi TV has grown exponentially since Kirk and the boys hit the TV screens back in the 60’s.
Sci-fi allows us to escape into our fantasies of alien worlds and alternate dimensions, an attempt, as it were, to make sense of our own realities and the many unexplainable occurences within it. Here, I will share with you what I believe to be 5 of the best Sci-fi TV shows ever to grace our television screens! Sit back and enjoy the trip down memory lane!
Nathan Fillion leads an amazing cast of actors and actresses who play the crew of the Firefly-class spaceship, Serenity. Set after the civil war, in which Fillion was a rebel, the show explored the varying degrees of human relationships and emotions, ideas about freedom and about a future that could become a very real possibility.
A wild west in outer space, the mash-up of Chinese and American languages and the terrifying Reavers, all helped to make this a show that is deserving of cult status. Sadly it only lasted for one series before being cancelled! Of course, us die-hard Firefly fans were given the film Serenity to help tie up all those annoying loose ends, but I just wish they’d make another series!! Please Sci-fi TV Gods!! Grant us our request!!
