The top 50 sci-fi shows of all time

The passing of (aka Maxwell Smart) has made us nostalgic for television's golden era of the '60s, when so many shows were unabashedly fascinated with modern technology and all the utopian promises it held.

Coincidentally, one of the more popular links floating around the blogosphere recently has been Boston.com's "Top 50 Sci-Fi Shows of All Time."

The list takes a liberal definition of science fiction, including shows such as "Wild, Wild West" and "Xena: Warrior Princess." And then there's the issue of judgment, which comes into question upon such entries as "The Greatest American Hero."

Nonetheless, Blogma applauds any effort to remind us that there was once more to network television than reality shows.
