    I know it was cheesy and preachy, but I loved Enemy Mine...

    Well, yeah... it's not a blockbuster or an epic classic of great import. But I like campy 1950s scifi.

    So do I (!!! <3) but my husband (the movie whore) would argue rather passionately that it is not "good" in the generally accepted sense.

    I am currently watching Prince of Space... then, perhaps, Space Mutiny?

    I really enjoyed Noah Wylie's new show, Falling Skies, which Spielberg produces. Was really bummed that it is only a summer series and we have to wait until next summer for the next season!

    Not to hijack this, but I got Netflix to see Serenity after YOU all made me, and it just KILLED me when it was over. I MISS those characters. Then I started on Torchwood, and they killed off all of the major characters after I finally started liking them!!!! I thing I saw the three seasons. I guess there's another one not on Netflix, but it's different. Does anyone know where to find this?

    I've tried the English Dr. Who's, but I don't know if I can get into it. I am so bummed. I just mostly watch documentaries now.

    If you haven't seen X-Files, you HAVE to see that. The original great series, and enough to last a long time.

    Stick with Dr Who!!

    Not sci-fi but Lie To Me and Doc Martin are two really good series and available on Netflix. You can watch them instantly too

    OK, I'll try. I want the Torchwood characters back!

    I agree with Lie to Me. It hasn't come back on tv this year yet.

    Yes, stick with Dr. Who!

    Netflix the following:

    Season 3, Episode 10: "Blink". Even if you never watch another DW episode in your life, I can almost guarantee you will love this one. One of the best, scariest, sci-fi stand-alone episodes I have ever watched.

    Season 2, Episode 4: "The Girl in the Fireplace" Lovely, gorgeous, and sad. Great villians.

    Season 1, Eps 9/10: "The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances" Creepiest. Kid. Ever. Plus, these introduce Captain Jack (NOT the Johnny Depp version), and if you like him, I've got another series to recommend to you!

    (oops! Just re-read your previous post, and you've watched Torchwood. But hey, more Jack is always a good thing!)

    Try Doc Martin. The series, not the movie. Very funny!!

    One that hasen't been suggested on here that I have really enjoyed lately and is available on Netflix is Eureka, it's a TV show that is on SyFy and unfortunately just got the ax. It's pretty comedic with a nice science fiction twists to it. I think I watched all 4 seasons on Netflix in a week(I had a lot of days off...) Anyways, sad it's going to be ending soon

    The first two seasons were awesome. Children of Earth (season 3) somewhat less so and Miracle Day (season 4), the one that aired on Starz this past summer was very disappointing to me.

    Oh and ...

    Alien
    Aliens
    The Thing (1982 version)

    Blade Runner was the first one t come to mind. I remember it was probably one of the first true sci fi movies I watched growing up and it definitely had a lasting impact.

    For tv, Battlestar Galactica ( the new one) without a doubt. Probably one of the best series in recent times.

    There are so many good sci fi movies I keep adding to my DVD collection.


    Contact
    V for Vendetta (dystopian sci fi sort of)
    Code 46
    Minority Report (Tom Cruise bugs me but this is pretty good)
    The Handmaid's Tale (dystopian and hard to find but worth it)
    Brainstorm (Natalie Woods last film, really good holds up even now)
    Children of Men
    Doomsday (totally silly and rips off lots of other movies, still fun)
    Never Let Me Go (dystopian thought provoking sad)
    Paul (comedy, silly, dirty, really funny, Simon Pegg always a treat)
    Shaun of the Dead (ditto above)
