    The only programs I make time to watch are SG-1 and the West Wing. I watch hem both pretty much every week.

    I started watching it becasue I liked MacGyver and was interested in his new show (which was kinda reminiscient of MacGyver until season four when they started dumbing O'Neill down)

    What I find particularly interesting about SG-1 is they manage to avoid using too many of the cliche'd sci-fi plots. They have used some (like the one where Jackson was invisible and could walk thru walls but not interact with anyone, how many times has that been done), mind you, but in general it is fresh and well written. They also manage to avoid DS-9's late-run pitfall of trying to set a war drama to a sci-fi background. And they have a sense of humor about them.

    Except of course Babalon 5. You're forgiven for forgetting it this time, but next time there'll be a whipping.

    IMO, Babalon 5 was the best of any sci-fi series I've ever seen. Yes, including any of the Star Treks. *ducks barrage of pocket protectors thrown by the Trekies*

    Of course, write it like a novel, have the entire story laid out and fit the episodes to the story. Boom, you've got a winner.

    I think Alias is the best show ever created.

    For best Sci-Fi: The X-Files (that's sci-fi, right?)....

    It's good, but it isn't _that_ good, imho. But it's relatively new, so I suppose it's still got time to become better. It does seem to have a good story line, one that follows through the episodes.

    >>For best Sci-Fi: The X-Files (that's sci-fi, right?)....
    Na, the X-Files _was_ good, but it lost its plot. It should have been about 2 or 3 series shorter. I found it bumbled along without actually going anywhere for too long in the later episodes, and that only the first and last shows of a season where really any good.

    >>Prelude
    Sounds like the "good design" paid off, eh?!

    [RE: Babalon 5]

    The acting was better than what we're seeing on TV now (with the exception of a very few shows. i.e. Sopranos) and the writers were very origional. I never saw any junk and they didnt fall back on boring or standard plot lines. It was like watching the worlds longest movie in 1 hour segments. I was disapointed when it ended, but it was so cool the way it did!

    >>have the entire story laid out and fit the episodes to the story.

    Thats what I mean. The whole thing was like some sort of uber-movie. It wasnt like other shows where there was weak off-shoot episodes that didnt further either the storyline or characters.

    >>Anyone else watch it? [SG-1]

    I've seen a few episodes. I'm not a huge fan. I find the acting to be somewhat forced occasionally.

    >>ALLEY MCBEAL!!!

    *cuffs ride -or- die with a look of disdain*

    >>Na, the X-Files _was_ good, but it lost its plot.

    Exactly. You can only go nowhere for so long.
