I put up my thumb... and it blotted out the planet Earth.



It's still really good if you can ignore the old-rear end special effects, and any nerd worth his cheetos should be able to do it.

It had better characterization, more intrigue, a plot that actually loving went somewhere (conparatively), and characters that changes and adapted to world around them.
loving ace, mate.

JMS wrote that Spider-man story where Gwen Stacy hosed Norman Osborn and had his kids. That was a real winner. Yeah.

Farscape was good about 50% of the time when it wasn't about Jim Henson Muppets getting sexually aroused.
Firefly is probably the best sci-fi series ever made.

I only ever saw the movie, but I totally sympathized more with the bad guys than with the idiot heroes, and I'm pretty sure I wasn't supposed to.

Firefly wasn't even as good as Battlestar Galactica, although both of those were better than Stargate SG1.

Farscape was better than Star Trek (all of them), but not as good as the original HBO series, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Sliders was unambiguously worse than Futurama.
