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!
The past 25 years has seen TV rise from its status as cinema’s second banana to a storytelling format that draws the biggest names in entertainment both behind and in front of the camera. It’s no surprise (to us, anyway) that a lot of what makes up "prestige" TV has fallen into one of the genres we cover. Here's our look back at 25 of the science fiction series that helped us get where we are, Golden Age-wise. Note: Fantasy series are coming later, y'all.
