September 2017 is Syfy’s 25th anniversary, so we’re using it as an excuse to look back and celebrate the last 25 years of ALL science fiction, fantasy, and horror, a time that has seen the genres we love conquer the world of pop culture. For us, that means lists! ALL THE LISTS! We’ll be doing two “25 greatest” lists per day all throughout September, looking back at the moments, people, and characters that shaped the last quarter century. So keep checking back. Please note: Our lists are not ranked; all items have equal standing in our brains.
What items in our lists were your favorites? Did we miss something? We welcome respectful debate and discussion, so please let us know in the comments!
No one knows when people started domesticating pets, but historians have noted that humans have always closely associated with animals. Pets are proven to extend our lives and alleviate depression and anxiety. This primordial bond between humans and animals is universal, whether that animal is a cat, a dog, or a wholly imagined critter with supernatural powers. Science fiction and fantasy is full of delightful creatures, and we want them all.
