I've recently watched, and thoroughly enjoyed, The Lost Room. Now I'm trying to figure out which scifi miniseries to watch next.

Despite all my Google/forum searches, I can't find a list where everyone's voted on their favorite(s). So I ask: Which scifi miniseries did you like best?

I won't have time to watch them all, I'm sure. So I'm interested in a rating of best to worst.

For me the Lost Room was the best mini series ever. Dune was pretty good but I'm a big fan of the book so I might be a little biased

THE LOST ROOM WAS GREAT!

I LIKE THE MIND OF THE WRITER.

I COULD SEE THE MIND OF SOMEONE THAT KNEW ALITTLE SOMETHING OF THE NEW "THEORY OF EVERYTHING" AND A GREAT IMAGINATION WEAVING THE NEW PHYSICS IN A STORY WITH REPRESENTATION PEOPLE COULD ACCEPT AND UNDERSTAND.

KUDOS!

THAT BEING SAID, I THINK "THE TRIANGLE" IS BETTER ENTERTAINMENT,

IT TWO USES "STRING THEORY" WELL BUT EXPLAINING THE CONUNDRUM OF THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE AS THAY DID IS "GENIUS"

KUDOS! AND BRAVO!

My 2 favorite SciFi Channel miniseries are The Lost Room & Frank Herbert's Dune, both excellent.

This one is right up there. I agree with anther thread. I would like to see a full series.

I also liked Tin Man quite a lot and I see it's now out on DVD.

This has all happened before.

The Gods or "The creators" made man in their own image, the original incarnation of Cylons, who intern rebelled and set out to colonize the stars. "Man" (original cylons) over time advanced to a technological level almost equal to that of "The Gods" (original man) and in turn repeated the mistakes of their creators.

And it will happen again, again, again.

The descendants of the original race and the original cylons are the humans of the colonies. Man and the new incarnation of the cylons will mix and start anew on earth. Over time they will forget their origins and become you and me in the 21st century on the verge of creating A.I. preparing to set out among the stars.

I liked the Lost Room a lot but would have to go with the Battlestar Galactica mini-series that preluded the series.

Ah the nostaliga....but what happened to daggit/muffit?

Unfortunately, I missed the LR which is why I stopped by this forum; to find out a bit more about it. Sounds very interesting. My favorite though, without a doubt is Dune; which I own and watch prolly way too much.tongue.gif I dunno, does the BSG mini count? I loved it the first time I saw it, but the series has crapped out. The first viewing was amazing tho. Couldn't get into Tin Man; just not my style. I really wanted to love The Triangle, but after attempting to sit through it for the fourth time I simply gave up. The story was very interesting and there were certain aspects to it that I rather enjoyed but I think some of the acting threw me a bit. I just kept finding myself rolling my eyes at some of the dialogue; and would promptly lose interest. If the acting isn't believable to me; I just can't stomach it. I may give it another shot tho, just bc I never did find out what it was all about in the end. Curious.


The Road Not Taken

By Robert Frost


TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and Ió
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Cant believe anyone has yet to mention Taken. One of the best Sci-Fi miniseries ever!
