Everyone loves lists, right? RIGHT? Yeah, that’s what I thought.


Well, here’s another one. Specifically, this is Entertainment Weekly’s “Top 25 SF TV Shows And Movies Of The Last 25 Years.” Pay attention to that temporal disclaimer, as it explains why things like “Star Trek: The Original Series” aren’t on the list. You can click the link thingy or just our “Read More” for the entire list.
