How do you limit "ever" to last 10-12 years?
And if that's so, then TOS, TNG, Babylon 5, Quantum Leap, V, and most of the X-Files need to go.
2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
I always liked QUANTUM LEAP. As a child I was brought up on the various drama shows like THE FUGITIVE where there was a central character but the setting and story changed every week as he went somewhere new. ROUTE 66 was much the same formula as were a few others in the Golden Age of Television.
And I used to watch LEAP with my son when we could agree on little else so there is a sentimental reason for it also. I still love the final episode.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
I'm still shocked that anyone would consider "Buffy" to be scifi or the #1 anything ever...
For scifi fans that haven't watched Farscape yet, check it out. good stuff.. one of the best scifi shows to come out of the late 90s imo.
"Control is an illusion, you infantile egomaniac. Nobody knows what's gonna happen next: not on a freeway, not in an airplane, not inside our own bodies and certainly not on a racetrack with 40 other infantile egomaniacs." -the former Mrs.Cruise
Firefly, hands down! Nothing else even comes close in my mind. Alas, it didn't last long.
Stargate SG 1 series and spin offs
The Outer Limits
The Twilight Zone
The X File
Why is Buffy being put up as Sci Fi? Buffy is no more Sic FI than Twilight is a Vampire novel. Yes I went there god damn Fairies ruining Vampires UGG. Buffy is more of a romance drama with a touch of horror added in for a plot. And I am a fan and I don't consider it number one in anything.

Firefly is Numbah One. All the others are, heh, Number Two.
