#SciFiMonth: Top 5 Favorite Sci-Fi TV Shows

As a kid, I regularly watched Star Trek: NTG and Star Trek: Voyage with my dad. Despite that, I don’t consider myself a Trekkie. Star Wars will always own my heart but I respect all the Trekkies out there.

Making this list made me realize, I don’t actually watch too many sci-fi TV shows. I’ll have to consider this when I pick out new shows to try.

I was SO into Alf as a kid, I don’t remember if anyone watched it with me. When Alf was on, nothing else existed.

Mr. C&M and I watched this some what recently. Each episode is it’s own story, so some are winners and some are just okay. I don’t think there were any episodes that I down right hated.

We aren’t caught up on this gem yet but I absolutely love the mix of western and sci-fi.

We just finished this last night and it was SO good. I went in not expecting a lot and ended up enjoying the absolute shit out of it.

I have no qualms about naming this my favorite sci-fi TV show maybe, ever. For the record, Eleven is my least favorite character.

What are some of your favorite sci-fi TV shows?

I’m about to jet off on a four day weekend in northern Michigan tomorrow, so I may not catch up with everyone until I get back. Hope your weekend is full of delicious science fiction things!

  1. I would have to say Firefly. I haven’t found a sci-fi show that blends story, character, and dialogue in such a masterful way. Also, if you haven’t watched The Expanse yet, check it out.

    1. I’m holding out on The Expanse until I get a little farther in the book series. (I’ve only read book one.) Firefly, I’ve only tried one episode years ago and should probably give it a whirl again.

  2. I never watched Alf growing up and now I wonder if I should. It might be really dumb or something πŸ˜‰

    I watched a couple of episodes of Black Mirror with my brother and got so depressed that I have never been tempted to watch any more. It really hit me wrong.

    My go-to SF show is Stargate SG1. It pretty much lives on Prime and I’ve watched the entire thing once and am currently working through it again. I like it. I might try SG: Atlantis if Prime has it next…

    Have fun on your 4day weekend!

    1. Thanks! (I should be packing currently as we’re trying to leave in an hour lol. Procrastination is my game!)
      I totally understand that about Black Mirror. And Alf may be really dumb! lmao. I haven’t watched it since then so it may not have aged well.
      I know I’ve caught a couple episode of Stargate but I never made the plunge.

      1. I think it was a small UK only TV show- made a big impression on me at the time; also prefigured a lot of my curtrent interests. Pretty sure it is up on you tube.

        You’ll love the expanse.



  3. The Boys is fantastic stuff indeed, since you’re loving the show I highly recommend the original comic-book series it’s based on… superlative stuff! I am currently enjoying the hell out of Titans, it’s definitely my favourite TV series at the mo, and Harley Quinn’s new weekly animated series is almost here too… it’s gonna be Bat-tastic!! πŸ™‚

  4. My husband and I were talking last night about how Unsolved Mysteries terrified the crap out of us. Weirdly, we both still remember the phone number to call if you see something weird: 1-800-876-5353

  5. Alf! I watched that show when I was growing up, too.
    My all-time favorites have sadly ended already: Farscape, Fringe, Star Trek: TNG, Firefly, and Buffy.

  6. AAAAAAAH ALF. I had forgotten that show, but it was absolutely a staple growing up πŸ˜€ That was also when I discovered Doctor Who (lifelong soft spot) – my more recent obsessions have been Stranger Things, Orphan Black, Battlestar Galactica, and currently Dark, which is time travel and relationship entanglements in a small German town and sufficiently surreal to completely captivate me.

      1. I’m really enjoying it in that ‘getting sort of twitchy and grumpy when I have to spend time being nice to family instead of watching it’ sort of way πŸ˜‰

  7. I love Black Mirror and agreed; there were no episodes I downright hated but some were better than others. Apparently people bitched about the one with Miley Cyrus, and I’m like “Why?” It was okay. It wasn’t the best episode, but it followed the show’s formula. I’m hoping it comes back soon.

    I still need to watch season 3 of Stranger Things.

      1. It was the last one of Season 4 (?) or whatever the last season was. It was about this doll that her consciousness was in. Honestly, it wasn’t that bad and it was Black Mirror like, but I think people wanted to hate on it because it had Miley in it.
