Top Five Obscure Science Fiction Shows that You Should Probably Watch (or Watch Again)

  1. Quantum Leap (1989-1993) Scientist Sam Beckett finds himself trapped in time–“leaping” into the body of a different person in a different time period each week. [Scott Bakula, Dean Stockwell]
  2. SeaQuest DSV (1993-1996) In the early 21st century, mankind has colonized the oceans. The United Earth Oceans Organization enlists Captain Nathan Bridger and the submarine seaQuest DSV to keep the peace and explore the last frontier on Earth. [Roy Scheider, Jonathan Brandis, Don Franklin, Ted Raimi, Stacy Haiduk, Stephanie Beacham]
  3. The Lone Gunmen (2001) Spin-off of The X-Files featuring the trio of computer-hacking conspiracy geeks popularly known as The Lone Gunmen. Like a misguided Mission Impossible team, they embark on a series of comic adventures that simultaneously highlight their genius and ineptitude. [Bruce Harwood, Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, Zuleikha Robinson, Stephen Snedden]
  4. First Wave (1998-2001) Framed for murder and on the run, a former thief struggles to expose the vanguard of an alien invasion with the help of a conspiracy theorist and newly discovered prophecies of Nostradamus. [Sebastian Spence, Rob LaBelle, Roger R. Cross]
  5. Sliders (1995-2000) A boy genius and his comrades travel to different parallel universes, trying to find their way back home. [Jerry O’Connell, Kari Wuhrer, Sabrina Lloyd, John Rhys-Davies, Cleavant Derricks]

Sliders was a fantastic show, I loved watching that when it was on the sci-fi channel back in the day.

    Can I just say how very irritated I am that HBO Go will not be available through Apple TV in Canada? I know we are a smaller market up here but we are also the eighth largest consumers of online media in the world so actually not all that small in terms of how much money we spend on this stuff. So why can’t we get content consistent with how much we spend rather than how many of us there are? Sorry, bit of a rant, and a bit off topic, but it always bugs me.

    Nice to hear about all this new stuff in the works – can’t wait for the new Star Wars books! Hope they are at least on par with Timothy Zahn…

    Oh, and I forgot that I would add the original ‘The Tomorrow People’ (old black and white show that used to be on before late night Doctor Who when I was a kid – same premise as the new show with less special effects and more bell-bottoms) and ‘Max Headroom’, the original ‘dystopian tech society/big brother is watching you’ show to the list of obscure sci-fi fantasy shows that you should get caught up on. Still devastated Max was cancelled after so short a run and then completely buried – I dare you to find a legal copy of it available today.
