    Falling Skies starts next month. I don't think there is anything other than that really, unless you're an active viewer of Syfy.

    What do they have? I mean good sci-fi... i.e. not wrestling, Warehouse 13 or Eureka...

    No, not really.

    It's too juvenile to be real sci fi.

    Yeah, Futurama is Sci-Fi Galileo, "juvenile" or not. That's like saying SGU wasn't Sci-Fi because it was too dramatic... Oh wait, we had people saying that until the end. Right.

    No, it isn't. Galaxy Quest was real sci fi. And you've got to be kidding. People didn't like SG U because it was too dramatic? I've never heard that one before. it's a really strange one.

    Futurama is real sci-fi.. it has some great time travel stuff, and the body swopping in the new season was hilarious and good sci-fi... but I wouldn't put it in the same category as SGU or V though
    I dunno what to put in here now..

    I never really considered Futurama a scifi, but now that I think about it I would agree. It's like saying Red Dwarf isn't a scifi. It has concepts of alien civilisation (basic though they may be), space ships, different planets, futuristic Earth, future wars (although from what I remember Fry was in stasis for many of those) and has similar drama (particularly in the episode with Fry's patient dog ).

    I was never really a Futurama fan, but it wasn't bad or anything. It just wasn't for me.
    I write articles/features/reviews for I'm With Geek.com now. Check out our stuff if you get a minute!
