Favorite Sci-Fi Show

I’ll admit, science fiction hasn’t been my favorite genre.

However, thanks to my husband, I’ve been warming up to it over the years.

As I was researching this post, I realized there are quite a few sci-fi shows that I have enjoyed, within the last six years or so:

  • Firefly (2002-2003)
  • Lost (2004-2010)
  • Fringe (2008-2013)
  • The multiple Star Trek series (We’re working through Voyager (1995-2001) now, which I like a lot, but TNG [1987-1994] is my personal favorite.)
  • The Outer Limits (1995-2002) [Broadcast on the aptly-named Comet channel through our antenna.]
  • Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction (1997-2002)
  • Futurama (1999-2013)
  • Jessica Jones (2015-present)
  • The Flash (2014-present)
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003)
  • The X-Files (1993-2016)
  • Doctor Who (1963-present)
  • The Twilight Zone (1959-1964)

However, there is one that stands out.

Quantum Leap!


My husband introduced me to this show via Netflix. He was old enough to remember watching several episodes while it was on the air (1989-1993), as well as when it was picked up for syndication.

For me, I’d never heard of it. I recognized Scott Bakula from other shows, but that was it.

I quickly fell in love. I like the concept of time travel, and mash that with history and historical fiction, and you’ve got me hooked.

We stopped watching it on a regular basis because some of the episodes are very sad and depressing. There was one particular episode that made both of us cry!

However, I want to pick it up again and finish the series, one episode at a time. Sad, or not, it’s a really good show!


Have you seen Quantum Leap?

Olivia Benson, portrayed by Mariska Hargitay, from Law & Order: SVU.


She’s as tough as nails. She’s a bad-ass. She can be ruthless!

But, she’s also human. She suffered a lot, which led her to become a cop.

Read her backstory – It’s fascinating.

I love her character! I’ve laughed with her, and definitely cried with her. Seeing her on the screen has heightened my interest in criminal law and law enforcement.


Do you like Law & Order: SVU?

Ah, yes, Wile E. Coyote.

Always after The Road Runner, coming up with every single possible scheme!

And yet, although he’s a villain, I applaud him for his tireless effort!

He’s been chasing The Road Runner on-screen since 1949, and there’s no sign of him stopping.


Do you have any favorite memories of watching Looney Tunes or Merrie Melodies?

I love how this one photo captures so many literary worlds.

Narnia.

Harry Potter.

The Hobbit.

Toad of Toad Hall.

Peter Rabbit.

The Wizard of Oz.

Wicked.


I’m reblogging this as a reminder to myself, and it’s also inspiring. Books are never far away. I want to make one for myself!
