    When I told my kids that I saw Star Wars in the theater as a kid when it first came out, they looked at me like they couldnt believe I was still alive, as if it were so long ago:roll_eyes: . I also used to watch "Buck Rodgers" (dont know if anyone remembers that one).

    I like almost all of them even the B-flicks because cheese isn't just for catfish. LOL.
     
  9. Had to be you who started this one Aaron. For all of you who don't already know it there may still be a debate between Shane Sudman, Aaron Drier, and myself to find out who is the biggest nerd or geek between us. I think it may be myself because I am actually making my career in computers. Of course I watch such programs as all of the Star Treks and Battlestar Galactica on the Sci-Fi channel. To sum it all up if it has a science fiction theme to it I will watch it. There is no gray area in that quote either.

    What about the X-files? Maybe not exactly sci-fi, but a good show full of aliens and stuff.

    There was also another show back in the 70's, I can't remember the name of. It was about the Air Force and UFO investigations, it had to do with project bluebook.

    also there was Kolcheck the Night Stalker.

    i have been following the new Battlestar Gallactica series since it debuted on Sci-Fi channel 3 years ago, it blows the old one away. my all time fav's though are the old Star Trek and Twighlight Zone re-runs. i like sci-fi but it has to be somewhat beleivable and easy on the special effects. although the latest Star Wars movies were great i think they went overboard with the special effects.

    Normally i hate to correct someone on something like this, but "The Ship who Sang" was written by Anne McAffrey. Also referenced in her Crystal Singer series.

    As far as Starship Troopers, I hated the movie. Probably because I read the book, and the books main thrust was left out of the movie (it was a satirical look at modern society, which still holds true today even though it was written many, many years ago).

    I have lately ben reading C. J. Cherryh. Interesting theories on possible alien thought processes. My favorites for strict sci-fi would probably be Piers Anthony (Bio of a Space Tyrant), Harry Harrison (Stainless Steel Rat), Isaac Asimov (various robot short stories), Joe Haldeman (Forever War), and Anne McAffrey for everything she has written.

    For fantasy and mythological... Movies really aren't my thing. I get much more out of a book. Favorite has to be Lord of the Rings series. Closely followed by the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. Also worth noting: Robert Jordan, David and Leigh Eddings, and too many other to write about while here at work.

    I read Star Trek books while fishing. These are 2 of my fav hobbies to do at the same time. (Also listen to the Cubs games on earphones--enjoyable the few times they don't get stomped on.)

    "Contact" with Jodie Foster is one of the best Sci Fi movies ever made along with "Phenomenom" with John Travolta. Both of them are real tear jerkers...

    Another cult classic is "Mission to Mars" with Gary Sinese
