Although it is not sci-fi, Supernatural is my favorite TV series--I watch it on Netflix and don't have a TV, so I am not familiar with new shows. The Twilight Zone will never be beat--yup, it is really dated, but it is the grandparent of all that comes after. There are two Discworld movies, Hogfather and The Colour of Magic ; there's a third one, Going Postal,but haven't seen it. Forget the animated adaptations.

The Last Man on Earth
On the Beach
Zardoz
The Navigator (not to be confused with Flight of the Navigator)
Brazil

I enjoyed many of the movies that others have mentioned. I did see Prometheus and while it was entertaining, it was too long and too predictable for old sci-fi buffs.

Firefly
Eureka..

Brazil
Time Bandits

and many of the aforementioned..Looking forward to some I may have missed. There are the classics which I tried to watch again ie..original Star Trek, Outer Limits, etc. but the writing and effects make them so antiquainted these days.

I own "The Prisoner" box set that contains the entire series. It's a shame it only lasted one season.

Dittoes here. Loved that show, bought the box set as soon as it became available.

My favorite sci-fi movie is actually a spoof - Buckaroo Banzai: Across the Eighth Dimension.

Killer cast, hilariously tongue-in-cheek and always something new to notice every time I watch it.

"Where are we going?"
"PLANET TEN!"
"When are we going?"
"REAL SOON!"

Thank you for all the shows and movies mentioned. I knew I could rely on you. ;-)

There are several series/movies I had never even heard of (like Thinner, The Prisoner, When Worlds Collide, On the Beach, Blakes 7 and so on), so I will make sure to check those out. I might just fall in love with one or several of those.

And there are some I used to love and that I had almost forgotten about (like Logan's Run, Total Recall, Dune, Soylent Green). And by thinking about the almost forgotten ones, I remembered some (that nobody mentioned, I think) that are soooo worth to watch again (like 12 Monkeys and Running Man). So thanks again guys - and keep 'em coming. :-)

Some of the mentioned works I never got into, though. I was very excited about District 9, for instance, after I had watched the trailer, but when I actually saw the entire movie, it fell flat. I didn't like it. Maybe I expected too much from it. And the revamped Battlestar Galactica never struck a chord with me either even though I loved Caprica as well as the old Battlestar Galactica. Maybe I have to give it another try. I tuned out after 3 or 4 shows of the new series.

Carnivale, damn I loved that show! Truly a shame they did not continue.

When Worlds Collide, now there's a good movie that I haven't seen in a long time. Wonder if it's on Netflix streaming? And why did no one ever make a movie of the sequel, After Worlds Collide (the book was even better than the original).

ON EDIT: nope, not on Netflix streaming. Drat. Off to check more nefarious sources....

stargate - and most of the offshoots. SG Universe was just getting good and it got canned (typically)! *robert carlysle is ace!* :D


SG Universe had turned into an excellent show, too bad

my all time favourite scifi movie is Apollo 13 followed by Aliens . .

I heard Netflix is good for finding old TV series,etc. I'm looking forward to subscribing soon.

The one thing I didn't see mentioned among some great stuff to watch is the Dark Shadows TV series from approx 40 yrs ago. I'm looking forward to watching the series again. There was also a TV movie called "Don't be afraid of the dark" from 1973 that I would like to watch also. They had a remake of it recently.
