According to TV Guide these are the greatest Sci-fi Legends:

25) Captian Video- never heard of him until this listing.

24) Dick Solomon from Third Rock From the Sun - I guess, it's not a bad pick.

23) Ultraman from the late Sixties syndicated show from Japan. I remember this show fondly. I was in love with Fuji(?).

22) Doctor Who- should be ranked much higher in my opinion.

21) Starbuck- a pretty good place for the character.

20) John Crichton- I think as the years go by this character will rank higher.

19)Steve Austen and Jamie Summers- cheesy, but I agree.

18) Captain Malcom "Mal" Reynolds of Firefly - never watched the show, so I can't even comment.

17)Max Guevara od Dark Angel- yes, she was cool, but not this cool.

16) Allie Keys from Taken- the mini-series bored me and I couldn't finish watching it.

15) The Coneheads- definitely!

14) Robot from Lost In Space

13) MST3K Crew- Good choice!

12) Sam Becket of Quatum Leap- sure, there were some very cheesy moments, but this was a very real character.

11) Duncan MacCloud of Highlander- yes, it was a cool show, but I don't know about him being ranked this high.

10) Jack O'Neil- Stargate , the series, has never been a show that I could get into.

9) Captain John Sheridan- with so many more fascinating Bablon 5 characters, I have to wonder why they choose him.

8) ALF-???????

7) Fox Mulder- definitely top 10 material, but where's Sculley??

6) David Vincent of The Invaders- another show that I nevwer saw.

5) Diana from V- while I agree that she should be on the list, but not this high.

4) George Jetson- couldn't they find a better cartoon character than George??

3) Uncle Martin from My Favorite Martian- I didn't like this show when it was out.

2) Star Trek Crews- yes, but I have to wonder, where they would've ranked on the list seperately.

1) Rod Serling- Definitely!

Should have been on the list: Astro Boy(way better than George Jetson), Aeryn Sunn, Doctor Smith, The Robinson Family the guy from Sliders, just to name a few.

I'm wondering, if you agree with these choices and if not, who would you have chosen?

I'm surprised Mork wasn't mentioned.

My vote though goes to Optimus Prime :)

True, I wonder why Robin Williams' Mork isn't on the list. I wonder what type of criteria, they used to come up with their rankings.

He wrote, concieved and produced The Twilight Zone and (later) Night Gallery. He was a visionary, who was one of the main forces to bring scifi and other genre type of stories to TV.

Cheers Priestvyrce. I'm afraid that in the uk as far as I'm aware, we never had a regular slot for the twilight zone so it is a relatively mysterious entity....I've seen modern ones which were not great, and the outer limits, again not great, but never the original twilight zone. I'm more of a star trek girl anyway, none of this creepy horror stuff for me!

Doctor Who should be #1, period. And there's at least 9 of them to boot.

What Smegger compiled that list!

No Red Dwarf?
No Battlestar Gallactica?
No Blakes Seven?!!!

What about other stuff by JMS and Roddenbury like "Andromeda" and "Crusade"?

They obviously didn't do that much thinking about this one :rolleyes:

I noticed a distinct lack of brit shows on there too Kahn....we just have different classics I guess...um, not that Battlestar is british or anything!

August 2nd, 2004, 10:59 PM
And why does Battlestar, the epitome of cheesy crap, have to be on the list?
