Falling Skies, I agree. It's a pretty good show. Doctor Who is good, but not as good as it was with the last Doctor. Defiance sucks, Revolution is mediocre at best, Orphan Black could be good if it wasn't dripping with homo stuff, and.... is there any more on now?

Eureka was my favorite, but the series ended. So I'd have to say Haven and Warehouse 13 are my favorites, but it sucks that they brought queerdom into Warehouse 13. Sooooo many Hollywood TV writers love to shove queerdom in our faces every chance they get. Evil or Very Mad

Defiance doesn't seem that bad to me. Why does it suck, Eber?

Oh yeah, I forgot about Haven. Warehouse is more of a fantasy than scifi, regardless both are just ok and not as good as they were.

I just don't like Defiance. The acting and writing seems very mediocre to me. The concept of humans bending over backwards to get along with aliens who showed up and tried to take over the Earth and ruined the biosphere is distasteful as well.

I kind of consider Person of Interest scifi so I'll go with that. Continuum is way better than I thought it would be. Defiance just doesn't hold my interest.

Continuum is pretty good. As far as new shows this season, the 100 has been kind of interesting so far. Resurrection has been really good, although at this point we don't know if it's based in scifi, fantasy, religion etc.

I've never watched person of interest. I had passed on it, thought it just looked like another cop drama. I take it there is more to it than that?

EDIT: After looking the show up, I take back what I said, I did watch the first episode of person of interest back when it first aired. I don't remember what else was on at the same time, but three shows I wanted to see were all on at once (only one dvr) so I had to drop one. Maybe I'll go back and check it out sometime.

I'll go for a tie between Continuum & Haven.
Falling skies is also good.
The 100 had a good idea, but I'm just not interested in watching a bunch of children.
I gave up on defiance early on... and while I've DVR'ed all of Helix, I don't know if I'll watch any more of it.

Helix is another one that I didn't follow. Saw the first three eps and forgot about it. I watch Haven because I'm thinking What will they think of next? Sometimes I think the writers were making it up as they went along. Continuum starts tonight by the way.

I'm enjoying Agents of SHIELD. I don't know that I would say it's the best, but it's growing on me.

I wonder if we will ever have another Babylon 5 or Firefly. Nothing on television today even begins to hold a candle to the great shows of the past.

Might have to rethink my stance on The 100. This week's episode was actually pretty good.

Yeah, so far it's keeping me interested enough to keep watching. Nothing really great has happened yet, but the potential with the "grounders" who might be mutant humans, devolved humans, or maybe even evolved apes could be really good. The show kind of reminds me of the "Earth 2" tv series from about twenty years ago, except of course these people are recolonizing Earth instead of another planet.

TwiceWise! Long time no see on this site, good to see you back.

I like Agents of Shield, it's pretty good. What I really like are the little ways it ties in with the Marvel movies.

Yeah, I came to this site because the syfy forum has absolutely died. In the last week there have been about 10 posts total across the entirety of the message board. I kind of think that MBG finally succeeded in killing it.

I just started noticing how long it has been since I saw any of my friends there, so I came here. It's good to see you too, and Vulcan and Annoyed and all of the good old crowd.

I still post over to sci fi's boards, but while MBG has a chilling effect on discussions due to her typical leftist tendency to silence views that she disagrees with, I think the bigger factor is Sci Fi is losing their audience, or at least the more literate portion of it, with their programming choices.

Granted, they're pulling good numbers with fake wrestling & other crap, but I'm thinking a good portion of that audience wouldn't know what to do with a complete sentence or paragraph if you smacked them upside the head with one. Might try to eat it, I suppose. Social media such as twitter, facebook and such are sufficient for their monosyllabic grunts.

I pretty much agree with you. The last thing they did that was truly great was Stargate Atlantis. Since then they have cancelled Eureka, Alphas and Warehouse 13. There just isn’t much left over there that is appointment viewing for me.

Sad to see a once great channel losing its audience. I do watch Helix not crazy of it but do watch it. Right now my three favorites are. Falling Skies, Grimm and Sleepy Hollow.

I like the 100. Took me a bit. CW does have some good ones. I also watch the Originals.

Now my favorite show even though it is not scifi. Is the Blacklist. Man that show is great. Whoever thought up had a great imagination. James Spader is just fracking great.

I liked Mind Games and it lasted 5 episodes. Shows what I know.

BTW - for an offbeat scifi/fantasy show - check out Yonderland.

I looked it up, it's a British show. I didn't see any mention of it airing on any channel here, but it ever did or does, it will most likely be BBC America.

Revolution is pretty good. I don't know why but I never watched it until this season. The last episode was kick butt.
