Television is a medium that cannot boast of a lot of quality SF. The majority are very simplistic and childish and do not reflect well on the genre. Every once in a while though, a producer, writer, or actor's vision is unique enough to create a memorable series. Fantasy has actually been better represented on the tube than science fiction. Even though the original focus of this site was science fiction, I've been reading more fantasy lately, and watching more variety on TV too. The following list is alphabetical, and to be honest, after twenty years of running this site I had surely intended to do more TV reviews, but for some reason I've failed at that, as I have at other things. One of these days (years) I'll get it together.
