I never thought of myself as a Sci Fi fan, but when I list out the shows I watch — Supernatural, Smallville, Eureka, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Battlestar Galactica, Heroes, Lost — I find that indeed I am indeed a fan. But maybe the reason I’m reluctant to announce my support of the genre is because sometimes Sci Fi gets a bad name.
Forever Geek’s 10 Worst Sci Fi Shows Ever are prime video examples of why science fiction has a stigmatism to it. Now, I’ve been lucky enough to never see these shows. How about you? Any others you’d add to this list?
I know some would add the original Battlestar Galactica series. When I originally watched it, I wouldn’t have thought so. But in light of the new series, I’d have to add it to the list.
I also guess the endless list of B-movies also helped tarnish sci fi’s image, but I always thought they were a good for a laugh.
