RE: Favorite Sci-Fi TV show
I tried getting into Dr. Who long ago, but I was too young and impatient to understand it at the time, and I was too distracted by the campy special effects. I know the show is highly regarded (it was a major inspiration to the creator of B5, for example) and realize the fault was with me and not the show. Maybe I'll take another swing at it one of these days.
Dune is another very complex, rich story on many levels. Both Dune and B5 use human failings (that is politics, right?) to their advantage, rather than sweeping them under the carpet like Star Trek would do.
