    What other sci-fi do you like (after Doctor Who)? Views: 1963

    Is that the same Harry Harrison who wrote the Stainless Steel Rat books? If so, I never knew that. I'll have to try tracking the Make Room book down and reading it. I liked all the SSR books when I was a kid.

    I also never read the original Logan's Run book(s). I'll have to do some searching at my local libraries and second hand book stores.

    Yep, same Harry Harrison. He also wrote "A trans-Atlantic Tunnel Hurray" and the excellent "Deathworld"Series.

    Logan's run, Logan's World and Logan's Search are by William Nolan, the first was co-written with Clayton Johnston.

    It's quite a thin book - more like a novella? than a novel. But a great story.

    I'm big into sci-fi, in fact, I think most of the shows I watch have some sort of sci-fi aspect to it (well, if you include ghosts/the dead speaking to you in visions as sci-fi). I think my all time favorites are:

    Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (the later years, when there was actually fighting going on)
    The Invisible Man
    First Wave
    Stargate (yes, I enjoy SG-1 - the early years more, but still a fan who organizes Friday nights around the show)
    Battlestar Galactica (the new series more, but I've even seen BSG: 1980 a few times....)
    Highlander (the show and the first movie)
    Futurama (well, it does take place in the future.....)

    Yea, another DS9 fan!
    I'm going to steal a few of yours and add them to mine. I'm a big Farscape fan, and have always loved Futurama also.

    I also see a lot of Super Hero movies shown on Sci.Fi. channel so if I can add those I'd have to say that I watch Justice League Unlimited with my kids as well, and really enjoy them. I'm going to enjoy the new 'Legion of Super Heroes' cartoon when that comes out, and that will be pure Sci.Fi. set 1000 years in the future.

    Sounds just like Revelation of the Daleks... Smile

    The Invisible Man

    I had forgotten about David Macallum and his rubber mask, it was great.

    It also reminds me of plenty of old RUBBISH Sci-fi shows:

    The Gemini Man
    Street Hawk
    Metal Mickey
    The Bermuda Triangle
    The Man from Atlantis (okay I liked that - but it wasn't actually good)

    Speaking of Classic SciFi who remembers this from the 70's era -> Link1 Link2

    David Macallum? Ilya whatever his name was from The Man From U.N.C.L.E.? I don't think that I ever saw that. I was actually talking about a VERY short run show on the US SciFi channel. Wasn't great, but always made me laugh, as the guy tried to figure out his invisibility (which came and went), sort of like Greatest American Hero (did anyone see that?)

    BTW Magpie, you appear to have regenerated, did some near death experience befall you last week?

    Hey, does Shaun of the Dead count as sci fi?

    If Worzel Gummidge and the Third Doctor had a fist fight - who would win?

    No, it's a zom rom com (according to the tag line)
