My Ten Favorite #SFF TV Shows – Final List

For nearly two weeks, I’ve been sharing my thoughts on my favorite science fiction/fantasy TV shows. Seven out of ten are based on books. Below is the final list with links to the posts where I discussed them.

  1. Game of Thrones
  2. Outlander
  3. Orphan Black
  4. RWBY
  5. Blindspot
  6. The Magicians
  7. The 100
  8. Bitten
  9. Shannara
  10. Witches of East End

What do you think? Would you have ranked them differently? Are there shows that should be added to the list? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Lori–thanks for sharing your favorites! Glad you enjoyed the discussion.

    Marie–they remade V

    Did you see? Was it disappointing?
    I haven’t watched but may check out
    I loved original V too.

    Echo–I can’t wait to get back to Orphan Black. Prob later this summer.

    Appreciate all the comments. Excited to add new shows to my “watch list”!

  2. I love Stargate Atlantis and Stargate SG1, Babylon 5, the original battle star galactica as well as the original V. I wish they would do a decent remake of V.

  3. Perhaps my favourite topic?

    So glad to see people talking about Stargate SG1 and Atlantis. Totally agree about Universe. I have definite thoughts about that one. Love Eureka also.

    As far as current shows, I really liked Killjoys and Dark Matter. Dark Matter took a few eps to get into. I loved iZombie from Day 1. Grimm is also on my list.

    Shannara didn’t really do it for me for some reason. It seems like it should totally be my jam but… I loved Supernatural but once it went past its originally planned arc it lost the edge.

    For some older shows, Farscape, Dead Like Me. Sanctuary was pretty good until the last season. Same with Lost Girl.

  4. Out of the ones you two mention, I’ve only seen Firefly, which I loved. I should have been better about mentioning that this list is just my top ten CURRENT favorites. They’re all shows I’m still watching so I didn’t include any that I watched but have ended like Firefly or Battlestar Galactica, which someone else asked about via email. Both of those shows would be in the running for any ALL TIME FAVORITES list.

    Thanks for the additional recommendations!

  5. There are definitely ones I would include – Supernatural, Stargate (SG1 & Atlantis), Haven (Seasons 1 & 2 only-the rest not so much), Eureka, Firefly, Lost Girl – well I could go on & on which is what’s so great. There was a time of day there weren’t enough SFF shows to satisfy the fan base. Now I can’t keep up. Thanks for the list. I have shows to see through NetFlix!!

  6. You’re missing Stargate SG1 and Atlantis. While I liked Universe it wasn’t as good as the first two.

    I haven’t been able to watch the Magicians since we dropped cable. I saw the first two episodes but I wasn’t very impressed.

    I would have also included Eureka.
