Firefly? Serenity? FarScape????... Gosh... the world has gone crazy.

As you\'ll see we can conclude two things: a) Firefly stuff (all Whedon\'s stuff by extension) is the best scifi stuff EVER released; b) Firefly/Serenity fans (Whedon\'s by extension) are just the most active poll clickers (and forum posters, and blog reviewers... etc, etc) EVER.

Anyway, Browncoats have absolutely pwnt Trekkies. So, beware, they\'re the new plague! Smile

BTW, I thought it\'d be funny to have a TTR top over the top list. So vote for the very best scifi thing from the top 10 if you feel like (just one option allowed).
Wow. I am so powerfullly not into sci-fi, looking at that list. Count me out of this poll!
I can\'t choose D: All the ones I have read/watched on there kick so much ass.

I\'d vote for Ender\'s Game, Hitchikers, and EP5 simultaneously if I could, though.
no star trek? Sad
Yeah its pretty wierd to not include the mother of them all.
After some thinking I\'ve finally voted for the Empire in the poll. Call it a (de)generational issue.

But my vote would have gone to the Asimov\'s Foundation series if they would have been in the top 10. Shame they seem to be too old and boring for all this Whedon new breed... Confused
BTW, about Star Trek, it\'s not only absent in the global top 10, but it\'s also pretty low in the top TV list:

Dunno. This reminds me about Superman. It suddenly goes from a cool cultural icon to an old and better-to-avoid cheesy and lame thing.

And how could it be \"The Empire Strikes Back\" and not \"Star Wars\".

Would be the same as picking one eposide/film of \"Star Trek\".

Besides, those \"modern\" series are what the kids have seen at what gets up on their \"fantastic effects and computer graphics\" scale...

For me, Star Wars (IV to VI), are the best. Simply because they are what introduced me to the genre and I really like it.
where\'s 2001?
