New Survey: What’s Your Favorite Classic Television Sci-Fi Series?

Shown: one of Neil deGrasse Tyson's favorite science fiction series, The Twilight Zone

Recently, Neil told us that The Twilight Zone and Star Trek The Original Series are his favorite science fiction TV series. Naturally, we started discussing what our favorites were, and that got us wondering, what are your favorite classic science fiction television series? So we put together this nifty survey to find out. We even found somebody to sponsor it: Hulu Plus. (If you’d like to get an exclusive, extended free trial of HuluPlus, just go to, but that’s not a requirement for taking the survey.)

We decided to let you pick your 3 favorite series, because narrowing it down to one or two was just too excruciatingly difficult. (I had the toughest time. I finally settled on Babylon 5, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Doctor Who. Then I changed my mind and replaced ST:TNG with ST:TOS. Then I replaced Doctor Who with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but then I switched back. Give me more time, and I may just change it again.)

If you do take our survey, and you’d like to have us email you a digitally autographed photo of Neil deGrasse Tyson, be sure to fill in your first name and email address at the bottom of the survey form.
