Yes I know what your thinking not another Top 6 of something Geeky Gem likes, well its my blog and if I want to write a top 6 then I shall write a top 6. Any way this top 6 is on a subject we havent really looked at, Sci-Fi. This one of my favourite types of genre to watch.So many good shows out there to watch here I will tell you about six of my favourite shows and maybe give you a video clip or two. As always they are in no real order.
Well what can I say about Doctor Who, some of you may already know that Kirkiechick and I love this show but Mr Beefnuts doesn’t like it all. This has no impact on our friendship at all. I’ve been watching this show since I was a kid and its one of this first shows I have real memories about, The Doctor a mysterious man from another world hops in and out of people’s lives trying to hep them as he travels through time in his ship. The Tardis, I so wanted one when I was and I still do, the show may be routed in time travel but at the heart of it all is the Doctor and his friend and deadly enemies.
At the time I started to watch the show the current Doctor was Sylvester McCoy, the Doctor always travels with a companion. I always wanted to go in the Tardis. Oh did I mention that the Doctor doesn’t die so much as he regenerates, here is my favourite regeneration clip.
If my memory serves me right, I did in fact watch the original series of this show on re-runs of course with my Dad. This incarnation of the show had me glued in every week. Now I have to admit I missed the mini series and in fact the first season, so I was little late to the party. However when I got to the party boy was it a party I was glad I went to. The human race is on the run from the Cylons, robots that have blown up Earth and forced the humans into outer space. What’s left of the human race is ow looking for a new home amongst the stars while the Cylons chase them. A new bread of Cylon comes to life, these Cylons look like the humans and even love like they do. Will the human race find a new home? Below is the opening credits for season 1.
Star Trek: Voyager
I’ve watched every series of Star Trek apart from Enterprise which I just couldn’t get on with. I did try ok, but I just couldn’t which is a great shame really. However Voyager next to Deep Space Nine where my favourites. The reason Voyager made this list and DS9 didnt is because of the ship and the Captain. Janeway was the first female Captain in the shows history to hem a show and come on that ship is cool. The Doctor is hologram how cool is that. Janeway kicked some ass and even took on the Borg Queen in an epic battle at the end of tha last series. Here is a little clip for you, it shows Captain Janeway, Tuvok and B’elanna Torres getting assimilated by the Borg
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century
Another show I used to watch with my parents, a show I never missed. I loved this show right from its cheesy sets to its funny little robot named Twiki. It was everything space adventure shows were meant to be. Buck was now trapped in a future where he had now way of getting home, kinda like some of the other shows on this list. I loved the opening credits and I am posting them below for you to enjoy, if you never saw this show you really must its awesome.
I am aware that the first blog I wrote for All Geek was about Firefly, I couldn’t go with out this on my list the show was great and Joss Wheadon did a fantastic job. It’s a shame the show never took off the way Buffy and Angel did. At least we had it for a little while. Firefly was Cowboys in space and who couldn’t like that. The casts were great and so was the direction the show was going to take. Below is the opening credits as I like the song.
Now I know for a fact that Kirkiechick likes this show too, I had never meet any one else who liked this show untill I meet her. I used to have to stay up late n a school night to watch this again with my Dad as my Mum was in work. I loved, Sam would lea from life to life putting things right not always in the right way. There was nearly always a fight and Sam always said “Oh Boy” that’s when you knew it was going to be good. If you never seen this show then you really must, it’s a good one. Here is intro nd opening credits, I dare you (if you have seen it ) not to hm the tune and know the words.
There you have it, just some of my favourite all time Sci-Fi shows, I am sure I can think of more and maybe one day I will bring them to you, but for now I gotta leap out of here.
