    Have you seen Virus or Pandorum? i love these movies a lot of people say virus is horrible but i love it.

    Also Farscape is a great scifi show aswell.

    And then there is Iron Sky

    And ofcourse the lovely Tremors trilogy (avoid Tremors 4 its horrible) and then there is a tv show Tremors thats either just called Tremors the tv show or Tremors and the Mixmasters or something like that.

    If you like Stargate, you might enjoy Sanctuary and Warehouse 13.

    I tried Warehouse 13 but did not really like it, Sanctuary is a bit better (i also like Amanda Tapping quite a lot, mostly because of Stargate of course ).

    Thanks for the reply.

    Does Doctor Who count as Sci-Fi?

    If yes, you should watch it. All 13 or so series.

    Actually, watch it anyway.
    Intel i5 2500K (4.5 GHz) | Asus Z77 Sabertooth | 8GB Corsair Vengeance LP 1600MHz | Gigabyte Windforcex3 HD 7950 | Crucial M4 128GB | Asus Xonar DGX | Samson SR 850 | Zalman ZM-Mic1 | Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB | Noctua NH-U12P SE2 | Fractal Design Arc Midi | Corsair HX650

    Doctor Who isn't everyone's "cup of tea". I liked the 2005 series, first 3 seasons. Then it became sillier than it already was and gave up.

    Ghost in the shell sac is good as long as you avoid the Tachikoma minis at the end of each episode
    solid state society was a good wrap up aswell

    keep forgetting about the x files awesome show but such a pain in the ass to try and get now same as stargate sg1
    If everything I do is wrong then by god ill do it right

    It's a quirky show, but very entertaining if it is your cup of tea. I heartily suggest giving it a try. Worst that can happen is you end up not liking it. And yes, I'd count it as SciFi

    Reading the A song of Ice and Fire series is like playing with an adorable puppy, then someone comes up out of nowhere and shoots the puppy, then punches you in the face

    Never mind the "if you like". GiS:SAC is an excellent gateway series, especially for the CSI crowd.

    Series: Fringe (its light and easy to get into), Battle Star Gallactica, The Big Bang Theory (XD its a guilty pleasure for most but I think its light fun) and if we count anime then everything Ghost in the Shell, Ergo Proxy and maybe Evangelion. You can try to watch Star Trek but in my oppinion that thing has so many eppisodes that its just too much to jump into right now. I did watch next generation when I was in high school and I loved most of the eppisode I managed to watch.

    Movies: I like Moon, Gattaca, 2001: S. O., Frank and Robot is a recent movie with a clever premise. For more main stream things try Wall-e, District 9 and the new Star Trek movies being made, those can be fun to watch.

    I will go on record saying Gattaca is one of the best Sci-Fi films ever made though, watch that. And Space Odessy is mandatory as well, in fact, just go watch everything Stanley Kubrick ever directed.

    Books: Dune (its a long series but it worth it), 1983, Embassy Town (just read everything by China Mieville as well), Wool series and the classics like Enders Game, Foundation and anything by Philip K. Dick.
