If there is one thing that can be said for and about Sci-Fi (Science-Fiction) TV Shows it is this: Science-Fiction has become Science Fact in recent years!!! If you have any doubts about this go back to the original “Star Trek” that ran from 1966 to 1969. Do you remember the Sci-Fi movie “The Day The Earth Stood Still”? Some would say that exactly what happened there is starting to happen here in the 21st Century.
When you say the words Sci-Fi TV Shows it pretty much goes without saying that the “Star Trek” series is the first thing many people think of. Do you realize that there are literally thousands of shows on television past and present that fall under the Science Fiction category? If you were to simply look up Science-Fiction – or Sci-Fi – television shows you would find not only live-action TV Shows such as “Angel” and “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century” (1979 to 1981) and “Battlestar Galactica” (all incarnations by the way). You would also find animated series and some movies (that either led to or came from different TV series) listed.
Pretty much everyone also knows that the “Star Wars” movies and animated TV Show series is Sci-Fi. What a lot of people are not aware of is what was only in the realm of the imagination and fantasy has actually been made into reality today. What is even more interesting is that we are very close to having mastered some other inventions and devices that are in many Sci-Fi movies and series. Sometimes it is actually very scary how close we, as a society and race on this Earth, are to realizing our wildest dreams, as well as our worst nightmares!!!
