Hi all. I'm currently doing a module in University called 'Science Fiction & Fantasy TV' which is shaping up to be really interesting. My first assignment is as follows: Discuss the ways in which science fiction television has developed since the 1950s to “become the most influential mode of a genre that has largely managed to cast of the escapist label and has established itself as one of the key mirrors of the contemporary cultural climate.” As part of my research for my essay, I'm interested in what fans of SF think on the topic - particularly those who may remember SF in the 50s, 60s or even 70s, who can provide me with their views on how things have changed and whether or not they think that SF is a much more socially accepted form of adult entertainment in today's society. Anybody is welcome to reply and share their views on the transformation of the SF genre so please, do feel free to participate as it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading and I look forward to any replies. Kirsty.
