Max Headroom: The Series
14 episodes (1987-1988) 60m


British phenomenon that started out as a rock video show featuring a computer-generated head, which we later find out is an electronic incarnation of a human investigative journalist. The 1987-88 US television series has the wise-cracking Max (Matt Frewer) getting some flesh and blood help to investigate a seedy collection of cyberpunk ills. 'Out there' series that needs to be seen.

The X-Files
202 episodes (1993-2002) 60m


The truth is out there… but trust no-one while trying to find it. The now familiar Mulder and Scully investigate the FBI's X-Files, which seem to contain a pattern of alien activities. Nebulous cover-ups and conspiracies, however, appear to be keeping the entire operation under wraps. Mixed sci-fi with the paranormal, in the process taking science fiction TV to a whole new level.

Eureka
77 episodes (2006-2012) 60m


As the promo blurb says… small town, big secret. Colin Ferguson stars as US Marshall Jack Carter. A car accident leads him to Eureka, a safe haven research facility for the nation's greatest minds. While there are plenty of sci-fi elements to the show, it also has its quirky offbeat sides that make it a nice mix of speculative fiction genres. Great fun and a well-deserved ratings winner.

Warehouse 13
63 episodes (2009-2014) 60m


Although best described as a 'science fantasy', this show has plenty of genre credentials within the sci-fi community. Warehouse 13 is a repository for supernatural objects collected over the centuries. The show follows the exploits of two U.S. Secret Service agents as they strive to retrieve lost objects and investigate reports of new ones. Good-natured, highly-enjoyable fun.

Project Blue Book
20 episodes (2019-2020) 60m


A tough US Air Force officer and a sceptical scientist investigate UFO and alien conspiracies as Cold War paranoia spreads. Ostensibly based on the real-life Project Blue Book that ran from 1952 to 1969, the show focuses on some of the more interesting cases from the historical files. Although the real-life project found no evidence of alien visitation, the series raises some questions.
