Sci-fi Sunday; Where has all the Sci-fi gone?
February 10, 2013 4 Comments
I’ve been a scifi fan all my life (as have many fans) and I’ve seen over the years how movie and television have accepted it. Or have they? Movies, definitely. Apart from books, movies are the next popular medium for scifi, but television has yet to fully grasp or understand it. I hear some of you saying “What about Star Trek series? Or Battlestar Galactica (remake), or one of the other scifi shows? Okay, yes, to some extent, but when was the last time you saw a new scifi series that was picked up after the initial first thirteen episodes? They are few and far between, my friend.
I’m not the only one who’s noticed this either. Check out this list:
I watched a lot of these shows and it was heartbreaking to see them cancelled. This article I found answers a lot of those nagging questions as to why.
Now with more people streaming shows online I have a feeling we will see fewer and fewer scifi shows on television. Right now, if I want to see a good science fiction show, I have to watch SPACE, but even then, they just replay the golden oldies. I have yet to see any of the cancelled shows on this station. Maybe we should start a petition.
What do you think? What were the scifi shows you liked to watch?
