Default Something new.....

Hi everyone,
I am looking for suggestions on a good scifi-ish series. I have watched many and now have "show-hole".

I have a list below of what I have watched (and kinda what my tastes are) so those of you who want to help can see sorta what style of series I am looking for.

I thank you for your help and let me know what's good out there.

List of series' I have seen already:

Babylon 5
Battlestar Galactica (old and new)
Fringe
Breaking Bad (though not typical scifi)
Killjoys
Stargates
Dark Matter
all Star Treks

I am sure I am forgetting some, but I welcome any and all suggestions.

Blakes 7... forget the somewhat hammy acting and cheap BBC production values

Orphan Black is amazing. Tatiana Maslany won the Emmy last year for Best Actress in a Drama (a well-deserved prize). You will be hooked.

An oldie but a goodie: The 4400. Ended its four-year run in 2007 and it was captivating. Plus you'll also get to see Mahershala Ali in one of his many strong pre-Oscar performances.

I personally have never seen Blake's 7, but my hubby has and he has fond memories of it. May have to see if I can find it to check it out.

I enjoy older shows. I love the older Doctor Who's as well as the newer ones. Matt Smith is my fav doctor even though I love them all.

I heard Orphan Black was awesome. Saw 4400 a while back (it's another of those that I forgot to put on my list) and I thought it was really good.

I have seen Sens8 (pretty good), all the doctors (love em), and I started watching the expanse a while back but it was kinda slow building for me, but I may give it another shot.

I also started Farscape but for some reason lost interest in it, but cannot remember why so I may have to revisit that one.

Haven't seen lost girl or warehouse 13 so I shall read up on them to see what they are about.

I also forgot to put on the "I have seen" list Ascension and the Librarians which are both pretty good.

Has anyone seen Red Dwarf? I heard it is good and that it is Patrick Stewart's fav show.

I truly appreciate everyone's suggestions, keep em coming!

Red Dwarf was a classic British sitcom that was really quite genius in the late 80s/early 90s. Very dated now but consistently inventive.

The original Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy is pretty much essential sci-fi viewing too.

Neither show is tonally close to titles on your original list but still worth checking out.
