Dark Matter would, of course, be top of the list – but in the interest of being as objective as possible, I will exclude my own (albeit well-deserving) show.
What a terrific concept for a sci-fi series. The possibilities are as endless as the parallel worlds in our multiverse.
#9. Logan’s Run
I’ve been hearing rumors of a big screen reboot for some time but so far…nothing. Still, think it has the legs for a series revamp.
#8. Space: Above and Beyond
Love me some military sci-fi.
#7. The Starlost
Not exactly a classic but certainly a fantastic premise involving an ark ship so vast it would take our heroes seasons to fully explore.
#6. The Outer Limits
Sure, Black Mirror is a sci-fi anthology, but its stories are decidedly more near-fi and very much grounded in the world of today and next week. I want a sci-fi anthology that explores the worlds of the far future.
I miss the tone of this most lunatic of sci-fi shows.
#4. Space Battleship Yamato
An under appreciated classic chock full of colorful characters, action, and oodles of space battles.
#3. Space: 1999
Okay, okay. The whole rogue moon angle is a little suspect. Still, I loved this show growing up and believe it’s ripe for a return.
#2. Blake’s 7
One of the early inspirations for Dark Matter. The original rogues in space.
Finally – this one’s so painfully obvious, I’m continually amazed that a streamer or broadcaster has yet to dial the gate once again.
So, what’d I miss?
