An experimental gate technique strands unlikely survivors on an ancient ship.
Nothing could possibly go wrong in an amusement park populated by robots.
A reboot of Westworld - (1973 movie)
A family is lost in space.
Inspired by Lost in Space - (1965 show)
Not to be mistaken for Thunderbird.
Based on a space station, a super high-tech secret organization performs rescue operations worldwide.
Wow, this is really good. Great effects.
An underclass punk, returning from a ten month flight from the country, happens upon a suicide that reveals that she is part of a larger picture.
The lead actor is particularly good, as is all the acting. The story is poor in a number of places, and it is particularly jarring to have literal-faggotry forced into it. I don't mind there happening to be gay characters, but when they're gay characters being gay because gayness yay gay gay as opposed to just being people who happen to be gay, it's so obvious and so insulting as to taint the whole fucking show.
I'll flag this as liked and lightly-recommended. It's really not all that awful, but it rubs me the wrong way. It's like girly science fiction drama-whatever.
See also Dark Angel - (2000 show)
Time travellers recruit an everyman to help save their world.
Crude and un-funny.
Pseudo-immortality is reached when alien technology allows humans to save their consciousnesses to reusable disks, and a criminal's disk is brought online from deep storage, for him to investigate the crime against an ancient and powerful man.
Finally, a science fiction show with real depth and darkness. Highly recommended.
In a world where everyday people use the internet through total-sensory virtual reality, a specialist intelligence agency tracks down murderers and terrorists.
Slow and confusing, this book isn't just a challenge to read, it's a challenge to read with a straight face. One of the risks of speculative science fiction is that they can get very, very, wrong in their predictions. This book hand-waives people being transported into a magical world with no explanation as to how it's possible or what it's like. It is vague in everything it demands the reader suspend their disbelief in. It is awed at 900 Mhz computers. This is definitely a 1998 book that had way too much hope for its future.

I had a sticker with two, and the book had two.. and none of these are coming up with anything:
- This is apparently a series, which I won't pursue, and there is also Tom Clancy's Net Force Explorers
This inspired Netforce - (1999 movie)
Its first impression is that it's sort of Star Trek parody-thing, it quickly unfolds into its own unique space-adventure-drama.
Fantastic originality and mood. Recommended, rapidly approaching highly recommended.
Verdict: While it's good, it's not great, at least not for me. I got bored in the first couple of episodes of season two. Definitely recommended for anyone who enjoyed the first several episodes.
Like other shows these days, I became interested in this purely because "those people" "hate" it.
Overall this is adequate, but with several plot points and character traits which are difficult to believe. The biggest problem I have is the various brushes against citizen-terrorism apologetics. My takeaway is that this show is "safe", with some edginess fabricated for the kids.
