The Top 50 Sci-Fi TV Shows Ever (Checklist)

Taken from the IGN list: TOP 50 SCI-FI TV SHOWS (Cylons and Vulcans make our top 50, but does Alf?) To read about the show please check out IGN’s post. This is my checklist. Note this is IGN’s order not mine. Personally I think there are too many anime titles on this list. With so much great live action sci-fi tv to choose from I would have left off more of the anime and included shows like Dark Angel, Sliders, Dollhouse, and Earth 2. How in the world did Roughnecks get left off this list?!

I’ve seen 16 of the shows on this list. Watched full series marked in blue and bold. Watched partial series marked in blue. On the To-watch list marked in green. Have no intention of ever watching.
