    I'm not really a big Sci-fi buff. More into comedies. Although some of those Sci-fi movies are so cheesy they're funny!!!! I use to watch uummm....I can't remember the name....something "theatre" I think "5000".....and the only reason I watched it was...

    I Too Really Love Good Sci-fi.

    My favorite is Dark City. You don't hear much about it, but it is GREAT!! Star Trek and Star Wars are nice, but there are a lot of Sci-Fi movies out there that are much better. Thanks for this moment to say something.

    Really Enjoying It Lately

    The first I ever read was Stranger in a Strange Land, by Heinlein.  That was in middle school.  Later, I think it was in the eighth grade, I was introduced to Philip K. **** via A Scanner Darkly.  There are a few more favourites I'll add to this list, as I recall...

    Favorite Sci-fi

    I don't like too many of these but I love Red Dwarf and Hitch-hikers guide to the Galaxy I like the ones that are humorous. If you know of any others I would love to check it out!

    Firefly

        I wonder what happened to the show Firefly after FOX canceled it and the movie based on it, "Serenity"?  I really liked the show.  I though it was a good mix of SciFi and Western themes.  Plus it was just fun to watch.

    Now That's Escapism For You

    I love stories, print or visual, about different or positive futures for humanity - not so much the horrible apocalyptic or overtaken by monstrous aliens stories. They give me hope that humanity will find a way to survive in spite of all the ways we could be destroyed or could...

    The Love Of My Life

    I love sci-fi. To read, write, and to imaging. What sci-fi can discuss goes beyond the boundaries of other genres because it is separating discourse on touchy topics about our world from the emotional connections in our world. Of course, some just stupid sci-fi is fun too...

    Me Loves the Sci-fi

    For instance I really love the Fifth Element, it's probably one of the best sci fi films ever made. Not to mention alien vs predator. I also enjoyed reading Ender's Game. I wish they'd make that into a movie.

    Searching For the Essence of Sci-fi

    Good novels - science fiction or otherwise - are diamonds in the rough, if you ask this picky reader.  I really dig on Niven's Ringworld (and the whole of "Known Space," really).  Books like "Flowers for Algernon" or "I, Robot" will always...

    Children Of Dune

    There Is So Much Variety In Scifi

    Scifi Channel

    The scifi channel is still my favorite channel to turn to when I watch TV but lately it seems that they don't show much Scifi. Most of the movies they show are horror pics. Surely there must be enough Scifi movies and series to make it a true Scifi channel?

    Best Sci-fi Books

    I know that a lot of the posts on here focus a lot on movies and TV shows, and don't get me wrong, I love all of that too. But, to me the pinnacle of the genre is the novel. I especially love books that shift your perspective and draw you into a new and wonderful world...

    Havd Read Easily 2,000 Different Sci-fi Novels

    I gave away a bookcase 7 feet by 3 feet full of Sci Fi books once and many, many before that.  I especially am turned on by scientific sci-fi where you just change one thing and then chase the story that develops.  Want to see the new Andromeda Strain movie too.

    Key Word "good"

    There Was No Show Like Battlestar Galactica Original Series

    that was the best sci-fi series ever and I dont know if they could make another series as good I never watched the series made in 2000 ... but I guess its cuz to me it could not live up to the original as far as I am concern.

    I Love Sci-fi.

    I love science fiction in any form. I think they're usually very creative. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not one of of those obsessed trekkies that go to the star trek conventions or anything. But I do definately love the whole sci-fi genre.
