just asking what is your favourite sci fi film/series or book and why?

sci-fi movie ? Must be Forbidden Planet - that's the one which introduced me to the genre. Or maybe Outlaw with Sean Connery.
sci-fi serie ? Maybe V, usually I'm not fond on sci-fi in TV series as video is not my favorite medium
Sci-fi book ? Dune serie by Frank Herbert - for the same reason than the movie.

Terry Pratchett keeps getting heaps of accolade. Perhaps I should re-read some of his works to discover if my initial opinion of him being a 'retard off his meds', was a bit premature. Hmmmm somehow I doubt it. I guess we all have different senses of humour, mine is just more finely tuned.

My favourite scifi series would have to be Ulysses (the cartoon), as I don't really like much sci fi on the tv. My favourite sci fi movie is Logan's Run purely for nostalgia, though there are many other great sci fi movies. The best sci fi novel I have read is Enders Game. My favourite fantasy book would have to be the Silmarillion. My favourite fantasy movie is (other than the LOTR) A Dark Crystal or Willow or Conan or I can't decide.

Yes. I loved it and am looking for re-runs on cable or regular TV.

Problem, we don't have the same channels. I'm the other side of the Channel.

As for Terry Pratchett, either people love his humor, either they don't. There's no middle. Give it a try (I personnaly recomment Men at Arms in the Discworld serie or Good Omens outside as good intros) but don't force you.

Generally its a good idea to try and learn the locations of the main posters. I think TM comes from West Yorkshire, am I correct?

fav science fiction movie - probably The Day the Earth caught Fire. Probably not so much pure science fiction as a drama, but I loved the quick fire dialogue.

fav sci-fi book. The Praxis by Walter Jon Williams. This is a fairly new book but I'm loving the characters & settings already
