There are a few great shows out now that really are good Sci-Fi like Smallville, The Stargates, Enterprise (sort of)but I really don't see what the future might be. Some of these shows are nearing the middle or even ends of their tv lives. I just don't see a big franchise show out there that can define Sci-Fi for the next few years. The X-Files was GREAT but lost a lot of steam in its last couple of seasons before ending. Farscape got the axe. Enterprise is struggling. Stargate is going on its what, 9th season? Atlantis looks promising. I don't know how much life Smallville has in it but it looks like they are preparing to finish the series in a season or two. I just don't feel overly optimistic about where sci-fi is headed right now.
