Is science fiction on TV dead?
I am a big SCI-FI fan, and I like to watch a series or two every now and then when I get home form hard day at work. The problem is, I don’t have a thing to watch at the moment – all my favorite SCI-FI series got canceled! Oh course you Nielsen Ratings and American Lost loving audience! And course you SciFi channel for rebranding into SyFy. Why???
History of cancellation of my favorite shows goes something like this:
- Farscape series got canceled in 2002
- Star Trek Enterprise series got canceled in 2005
- Stargate SG1 got canceled in 2007
- Stargate Atlantis got canceled in 2009
- Battlestar Galactica got canceled in 2009
To compensate, I had to switch to mainstream, so at the moment I watch 24 (Jack Bauer, I love you!), Heroes (laugh, but I really like the show!), Medium, Law and Order UK (I love English detective shows), and Doctor Who. But it’s only a matter of time when those shows will get canceled too.
Something I can’t wait to see is newly announced Stargate series called Stargate Universe:
Am I missing something maybe, do you have a SCI-FI show to recommend?
