I was wondering if there was any sort of agreement on the SDMB of what the best science fiction television of the 90s was. A couple ground rules first: 1. At least part of one season has to have been shown in the 1990s to count. 2. It doesn’t have to be drama, but I suspect the majority of the list will be. 3. It has to have aired on US TV regardless of country of origin. And 4. New episodes only, no reruns.
A partial list of qualifying potential shows, both from memory and Wikipedia:
Star Trek: The Next Generation
ST: Deep Space Nine
3rd Rock From the Sun
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
The Outer Limits (1990s version)
Earth: Final Conflict
RoboCop (TV series)
Feel free to add more, of course. Cable or broadcast is fine.
For me, a list would probably start off with Stargate SG-1, followed closely by early X-Files and Futurama. Never watched Babylon 5 (which I expect to get a lot of votes) since at this point I’d have to start from the very first episode on DVD to make any sense out of the storylines. I also expect Buffy to get a ton of votes and some of the other shows listed, like Andromeda, Earth: Final Conflict, and Sliders to get absolutely none, though all three had their moments at times.
