Is it just me, or did science-fiction take a huge backseat in terms of new shows on TV right now?
There are still some classics like Doctor Who that are still around but it seems sci-fi is destined to fail with current audiences. The only new sci-fi that I can think of that’s doing well is The 100 and Extant. Helix is doing alright, but it's more of a suspense or horror with a sci-fi aspect to it. Almost human got canned before it’s first season even finished, Revolution lasted three seasons but it got canned too…has there been anymore? Do you miss good sci-fi, or has it grown old?
Genres are cyclic as creativity-poor producers piggyback on the success of those who can come up with a new idea. I'm predicting that we will see a resurgence of westerns in the near future. A politically correct Bonanza, anyone?
It seems sci-fi has almost disappeared. I guess everything has a cycle, from fashion to TV, but I really miss watching some good hardcore sci-fi. Hopefully the new Star Trek series that's been rumoured will actually happen and I can get my fix.
I am not as interested in sci-fi as I used to be, so do not look out for it so much. I enjoyed The 100 while it was on, and that is the first piece of new sci-fi that has interested me in a while. I don't know i it is because my tastes are changing, or sci-fi just isn't as good as it used to be.
