Knight Rider count as sci fi? How about X-Men (animated)? Smallville (if nothing else, it had/has longevity)

Good list regardless, lots of entertainment that I enjoy. I'd be hard pressed to think that anything could surpass BSG (new series) on this SCIFI list. Lost would be my #2...although more generally speaking, I think it's probably the greatest show ever made.

Sarah Connor Chronic had some strengths, but also some incredible weaknesses in the way it was written, especially towards the end. Didn't really make logical sense, but was entertaining nevertheless.

I'm offended that Star Trek: The Original Series isn't No. 1.

Garbage.

06. Lost

Seriously? The show where clearly not even the writers knew what the **** was going on? It's not even scifi, it's a mystery show with supernatural mumbo jumbo to compensate for ****ty writing.

01. Battlestar Gallactica

Not Even Close to deserving #1, Seasons 1&2 were epic, then it devolved into utter **** capped with the most dissapointing cop out in recent history.

Which version of Battlestar Galactica? Lorne Greene as Adama was simply awesome...

edit: NM, the new one? That's a bunch of BS...

Oh, yeah...Right now, the new "V" is kicking the old "V"'s arse. They have really stepped up the writing, this season.

Just depends on how much you choose to value the ride as opposed to the destination. I'd agree they both **** the bed in terms of conclusions, but for me, it doesn't interfere with the story they told along the way. It is disappointing in many ways though.

Due to my own lack of television watching experience, what are some shows that you would say were really great throughout, and provided a satisfying conclusion?

Caprica should not be on any list about top anything. Dear God.

Also, SG1 is way too low.

Firefly was a short run series (15 episodes) from 2002-2003. It was space travel with a western take on it. The movie "Serenity" (2005) was a spin off of the original series. It was just ahead of its time I think. I have the series on DVD and find myself watching it every year.

A couple of the cast went on to other TV related shows that made this list.

1 was the terminator in the Sarah Conners chronicals, 1 is the queen in V . 1 was in the Matrix movies.

Ron Glass from Barney Miller was part of the cast as well as one of the Baldwin brother.

you hit this one out of the park.

you're absolutely right about both Lost and BSG.

both shows started with promise and then the writers got huge, swollen egos and started shoveling sh*t into their scripts because they thought their viewers were too dumb to notice or care. i would put both shows on the list of WORST FINAL SEASON(S) of any shows ever made anywhere.

Firefly and Farscape should be top 5 to me and Andromeda should be on the list.

Doctor Who is good where it is and Torchwood should be a couple spots higher, the mini-series they did was amazing.

How the hell is Fringe in the top 20 but Farscape and Quantum Leap aren't?

I'd also swap Stargate SG1's and Babylon 5's spaces.

I can see BSG as #1 although it probably wouldn't be my choice.

I would not have Lost nearly as high as they do.

BSG was AMAZING.

Firefly deserves to be top 5 as does Star Trek NG

Just noticed Caprica on the list, that explains the mistakes, whoever made it has no eyes or ears.
