Sunday, October 02, 2005's Top 50 SciFi Shows

Battlestar Galactica makes the list, twice:

Number 2
'Battlestar Galactica' (New)
The new 'Battlestar Galactica' just barely missed the number 1 spot due to its newbie status in the sci-fi genre. However, this is easily on track to becoming Number 1 due to its great writing and a wonderful vision by executive producer Ronald D. Moore. The show is a modern-day remake of its 1970s predecessory but features more compelling story plots, a darker tone and surprising twists and turns in almost every episode.

Number 35
'Battlestar Galactica' (Original)
The 1978 series 'Battlestar Galactica' is a fantastic story of 12 colonies destroyed by a race of mechanized beings called Cylons, who are bent on destroying mankind. Commander Adama, played by the late Lorne Green, leads a rag-tag fugitive fleet across the galaxy in search of the lost 13th tribe, who settled on a planet called Earth. The great cast included Dirk Benedict as Starbuck and Richard Hatch as Apollo.

Stargate Atlantis makes #26, Firefly made #17, Stargate SG-1 made #6, Babylon 5 #5, and the Original Star Trek tops the list at #1.

I'm glad the new BSG made the list at such a high place -- I'm dissapointed Voyager made it and Deep Space Nine didn't, as well that Firefly wasn't higher.

I'm a little disapointed about Firefly, but I'm happy that it's at least on the list. I was surprised that Andromeda and Dark Angel made the cut- I really didn't like those two shows.
