One of my favorite television genres is science fiction. It’s a genre that is underappreciated by the masses, but the people who love it are often fanatical enough to make up the difference. It’s unfortunate that so many people dismiss the entire genre without even giving it a chance (it’s not all Star Trek , you know) because science fiction has so much to offer.
I find it fascinating that science fiction shows can portray real life situations in the most imaginative and creative ways. Whether the show takes place on a spaceship, a distant planet or on Earth, or whether it deals with humans with advanced technology or an entirely new alien race, it is almost always relatable. The characters face danger, feel sorrow or joy, make hard decisions, find humor in life, and fall in love. The circumstances may be different, but the basic human emotions are always there.
