Unrelated to the movie, but not the series:
Boston Globe ranks The X-Files as the No. 4 best Science Fiction TV Show of all time.Linkage
Still haven't seen it yet - not sure if I'll go to the theatre or wait for the DVD.
1) The X-Files
2) The Outer Limits*
3) The Twilight Zone*
NB: The original b&w of The Outer Limits, not the terrible newer version - I have the entire series on DVD, classic that used to scare me as a kid!
I didn't include LOST, which I love, like they did in their rankings 'cause I don't classify it under the sci-fi genre, or it would be right up there.
