My Best of T.V.- Scifi, Action, Tech V0.1ALPHA

I wanted to make a list of my favorite TV series. The list will remain a work in progress for me as I remember past shows & find the time to work on it. This is my first attempt at making anything on IMDB. For now the order is nothing of consequence, just a jumble. Eventually I'd like to order them by genre in order of some crazy rating system I can dream up. I'm in search of hidden gems lost to time or smaller budget shows I may not be aware of. Please post great series so I can review them and add them to the list if deemed worthy.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
Watch the story of history's greatest gladiator unfold with graphic violence and the passions of the women that love them. This is Spartacus. (55 mins.)
“ Semi accurate story of Spartacus, so far the blood & sands was the best season. I'm currently starting season 3. ” - Drew Walley
 
2.

Common people discover that they have super powers. Their lives intertwine as a devastating event must be prevented. (45 mins.)
“ Comic books, interweaving story, loads of plot with action. Has some holes in the story that are annoying but still a good show. They really screwed up canceling the series early leaving it unfinished, OUCH! ” - Drew Walley
 
3.
The Walking Dead (2010 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
Sheriff Deputy Rick Grimes leads a group of survivors in a world overrun by the walking dead. Fighting the dead, fearing the living. (44 mins.)
“ Tied with Spartacus for gore and action, a great series. It would be near perfect if it did not have annoying holes in story. For instance when they are in the prison why not just save ammo and stab all the zombies through the fence? ” - Drew Walley

“ Remake of the British show as many of our shows are these days. I was surprised when I found just how many shows get ported over to the U.S.. Season 1 & 2 have been the best, 3rd season opened funny then sort of fell off. I'm curious to see where it goes because I know the Brit version has ran for many many years. ” - Drew Walley

A boy genius and his comrades travel to different parallel universes, trying to find their way back home. (60 mins.)
“ Interesting science fiction series that can be as unique as it is silly. I believe it is season 4 that the series suffers greatly when the original cast is cut to pieces. When Jerry O'Connell & John Rhys-Davies leave the show it loses most of it's appeal. ” - Drew Walley
 
13.
Babylon 5 (1994 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.2/10 X  
A space station in neutral territory is the focus of a unique five year saga. (45 mins.)
“ I'm not sure why Bruce Boxleitner hasn't played more prominent roles. It seems to me he could weigh in with many of the big budget movie actors these days. At the very least Ashton Kutcher shouldn't be allowed in movies or on tv before not allowing Boxleitner. That said Babylon 5 is a great science fiction series, some of which star trek may have borrowed from with Deep Space Nine. ” - Drew Walley

Hosted by Morgan Freeman, Through the Wormhole will explore the deepest mysteries of existence - the questions that have puzzled mankind for eternity... (60 mins.)
“ With Morgan Freeman cutting the wax on narration this show delves into the world of theoretical physics and science to ask the big questions. Animation and interviews with top scientists make for interesting television. ” - Drew Walley

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.4/10 X  
Science and mythology - and how they are the same thing. (90 mins.)
“ From a scientific stance this show is no more realistic than X-Files. Usually pulling "facts" from out dated texts with an almost certain intentional ignorance the show attempts to prove the intervention of aliens on the human race. It still comes off as interesting and fun to watch even if it is fake. It's entertainment that does an exceptional job of spurring imagination. ” - Drew Walley

19.
The Jeff Dunham Show (2009 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.7/10 X  
(30 mins.)
“ Using a nearly extinct art it's amazing just how funny ventriloquist Jeff Dunham can be. The main issue with the show is lack of, at only 7 episodes. The writers and actors really pulled it off with this I'm not sure what happened. ” - Drew Walley
 
20.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X
