What's the Best Sci Fi Show of 2008?

What's the Best Sci Fi Show of 2008?

As my Best of 2008 series continues, I'm asking today about sci fi TV shows. They stretch the boundaries of science, take us to new worlds, and occasionally creep us out a little (or maybe that's just me). Which of these shows is the year's best?

I do not see the appeal behind The Fringe at all. I voted for Eureka for the lightness of the show, but really ... I would have voted for Doctor Who if it was on there.

Tough choice. BSG is a classic so I had to vote for that. But where's Doctor Who and Torchwood? Probably the best sci-fi shows around right now.

How is Lost not Sci-Fi? The plain fact that they introduced a character named Daniel Faraday (and also Mrs. Hawking) should be a big indication. And the obvious time travel factor of the show. The psychological and zoological experiments that have apparently taken place on the Island. Electromagnetism and the geology of the Island as it pertains to time travel/time distortion, to the hatch, to the distortion of light waves, even to the salubrious medical effects of simply being on the Island like Jin's increased fertility, accelerated healing, Rose's cancer remission, and the fact that around 70 people survived the initial plane crash; even insalubrious effects like Ben's cancer, the 100% mortality rate of those who have conceived on the Island (excluding Sun who *spoiler* managed to leave the Island), the disease that supposedly wiped out Rousseau's crew and possibly made Aaron sick. Even the Smoke Monster, which is obviously a mechanism that can be controlled somehow. Lost is most definitely science fiction.

Buzz, I normally agree with you, but LOST is so very very Sci-Fi.

Where is the "Other" category? I vote for Stargate Atlantis. I'm so sad it's ending.

I dont believe Supernatural is sci fi but hell ill vote for those hot Texas boys any day! Fringe of course is second. Every episode is stranger than the one before..and the old man is just great

I love me some Supernatural, but it is not now nor has it ever pretended to be science fiction. I voted for it anyway :)

I'm sad that Doctor Who was left off the list, that's a great show!

I would say a series about an island w/ apparitions and smoke monters that seems to exist outside of time and space to be pretty sci-fi-y.

As a matter of fact, Sugar HQ got in a big debate over whether Lost was sci-fi or not! We ultimately decided not, but it really could go either way.

Fringe all the way. :) Heroes totally comes in second. Brian Austen Green could tramp around naked and I still wouldn't watch that monstrosity.

I wish more people were watching the Sarah Connor Chronicles! It's the best show to come along since LOST in my opinion. Fringe is okay too but doesn't have the depth of the SCC.
