      I'm torn between Deep Space Nine and Babylon 5.

      Kinda ironic isn't it?

        Both shows had good qualities, but I think B5 always wins out for me because of how detailed and well constructed the arc was. I have a feeling they kinda made it up as they went along with DS9, or at least they did until they hit the later seasons.
        Captain John Sheridan: I really *hate* it when you do that.

        Kosh: Good!

          Wow so many more downvotes for B5 on this list. Let's give those to SG-1 instead...

              Babylon 5 slipped to #8 on the "Best SciFi TV Series of All Time" list, and we seem to be stuck there. Oddly, despite having the (1) symbol for being ranked #1 the most, we now also have the (!) symbol for being controversial and having so many down-votes. How did we get so many down-votes? Who out there hates this show so bad?

              I just added Babylon 5 to the list for "Who Are the Most Passionate TV/Movie Fandoms." It looks like a relatively newer list, and it's odd some of the shows that are in the the top 10. Because I just added it, B5 is only 55 out of 56 right now.

              Babylon 5 should also be doing better than 22 out of 82 on the "All-Time Top Cult TV Show" list.

              Here's the full list of lists that B5 appears on.

                    I thought we had a thread for these, but I am missing it. Here is another B5 related IMDB Poll.

                      Favorite Babylon 5 Character

                      We have reached the 20th Anniversary of this groundbreaking sci-fi TV series (first aired January 26th, 1994). It helped pioneer arc-based TV science fiction, and developed some excellent characters in the process. Name the one you find most intriguing.
                      There is another recent IMDb poll that includes Susan Ivanova, Delenn, Capt. Elizabeth Lochley, Lyta Alexander and Talia Winters as the first five choices.

                      Hottest Non-Star Trek Space Opera TV Babe
                      We had a poll recently listing all the women of the Star Trek franchise. So this is a list of women of (recent) space opera TV shows that aren't Star Trek. Which of them do you think is the hottest?

                      I'm looking at shows that aired between 1990 and the present, to keep the list within limits.

                        Nooooo, SG-1 was good, as was SG-A. Eureka, Warehouse 13, Sanctuary, etc.. My downvotes go to BSG (all of 'em), SG-U, DS9, Voyager, etc.).

It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

                              Oh Gawd, I'm still in floods of tears every night over BSG. The series that, as children, my brothers and I used to sit together and watch, (because it was a family show, and totally suitable for kids, damnit!!!), had ended prematurely. In my teenage years and into adulthood, I and many others campaigned to have the series continued... or at the very least resolved satisfactorily.

                              Tough years went by, but it seemed worth it when we heard that series creator Glen Larson was working on a film proposition, and that leading man Richard Hatch (who had written a series of Battlestar Galactica comics and novels) had produced a proof-of-concept trailer for his own vision of a continuation. The biggest news was that two young men, for whom the term wunderkind seemed entirely appropriate, had actually gone into pre-production on their own continuation of the original series; Bryan Singer and Tom DeSanto. Sets were built, costumes designed, photos leaked, and even a full size Viper spaceship neared completion. All of we oldschool fans, who had supported with such effort for so long, could taste victory.

                              And then, totally by surprise, the project was crushed.

                              At first, it didn't seem too bad; we were supposedly getting a TV reboot of the entire series instead. That could work, couldn't it? I wanted to love it as much as I loved the original. I gave it a chance. I watched it for three and a half years, hoping those feelings would resurface.

                              But what we got shared nothing in common with Battlestar Galactica except the title.

                              The final straw for me was when Cain's officers were raping captives, and D'Anna used a power-drill on Baltar. This had nothing to do with the show I grew up with, nothing to do with Adama telling bedtime stories to Boxey, or Muffit finding mushies. I certainly couldn't watch this on DVD with my nephews while babysitting, as I had with the originals. It was all over.

                              Or was it?

                              Bryan Singer is still determined to go ahead with his continuation of the original series. Perhaps we will rise again, after all....

                              "Launch when ready!"
