The Great Science-Fiction/Fantasy TV Showdown!



If there’s one thing science-fiction and fantasy fans like more than watching, reading and playing science-fiction and fantasy, it’s arguing about watching, reading and playing science-fiction and fantasy. Marvel vs. DC. Star Wars vs. Star Trek. Classic Who vs. NuWho. These debates may very well rage on for the rest of time.

But now, The Science Fiction and Fantasy Stack Exchange is going to what they can to help settle these debates. Every month or so (hopefully), we’ll host a bracket, where all members of the site will be able to vote in order to determine the best of the science-fiction and fantasy best.

This month, we’re doing science fiction and fantasy TV shows. I, with help from other members of site, have selected 48 science fiction and fantasy TV shows from across the decades. These 48 shows were chosen by popularity and notability, and range the full spectrum of sub-genres and fan-bases. I have arranged them to hopefully prevent any round one steam-rolling.

So without further ado, arranged in no particular order for the primary bracket, the shows!

  1. Why spiderman vs justice league? Why not do justice league vs xmen? Both were pretty popular when they aired, and focused on a team of metahumans.

    Also, the Batman v batman: Dawn of batman, why not do a batman v superman and do the animated batman and superman shows that aired at the same time? Then it would allow for the matchup of pure awesome that is :
