Most Unique & Creative Sci-fi Series


The Top Ten

1 The X Files

This legendary T.V. show changed our television forever. Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully became cult characters - Irina2932

2 The 4400

Similar to the X Files but still great series. Its storyline is very interesting and really smart for Sci-Fi level. All the characters are great and you really care for them. I miss this series - Irina2932

3 Torchwood

One of the most underrated Sci-Fi series ever - Irina2932

Far too creative! I love Torchwood. People must give this show a chance to see how great it truly is. Sitting on the edge of my seat each episode. Even if I'm rewatching it. - kendralang

4 Babylon 5

Another classic Sci-Fi show that influenced many other shows - Irina2932

This T.V. series literally turned sci fi from a disorganized collection of cool graphics and fun episode-long story lines to a fully coherent and connected web of mysteries and action that is exciting and smart at the same time.

5 Farscape

Farscape somewhat what made up good sci-fi when it came out. As someone said (I forget who), Farscape's aliens looked like real aliens, not simply blue humans with a bump on their heads. And then there's the show's very unique and distinct aesthetic. Everything from the designs of the alien races to the architecture worked in both soft curves and hard lines in a way that just made sense. And the plot lines were equally stellar, with most all of them being extremely original and creating some incredible tension and atmosphere. Top it all off with very memorable characters, and what do you have? Farscape. Easily one of the most creative - and certainly one of the best - sci-fi shows ever.

The most creative certainly, and ground-breaking in its way, though not the most unique considering it came in the wake of Star Trek and other space opera. Still my favourite though.

Full of weird but still interesting characters, creatures, monsters, space ships etc - Irina2932

6 Doctor Who Doctor Who Doctor Who is a British science-fiction television programme produced by the BBC since 1963. The programme depicts the adventures of a Time Lord called "the Doctor", an extraterrestrial being from the planet Gallifrey. The Doctor explores the universe in a time-travelling space ship called the TARDIS. more.

The imagination and constant change of this series makes it a master piece of the human kind!

Torchwood is higher and it's a spin off of the Doctor Who series.

An allien who travels around in time and space - in a police box. Nothing To Add. - TheOzTamir

Doctor Who is so unique because it was created in the '60, and they didn't even have a computer yet in that time. While the TARDIS is a blue police box because of the budget in that time, it has become iconic by now.
Doctor Who has become an amazing show because of its always changing actors, and that is very unique. How many series constantly change their (main) characters' actors?

7 Lexx

In some categories this show inspired Farscape - Irina2932

8 Earth: Final Conflict

One of the smartest and unique series I've seen - Irina2932

9 Total Recall 2070

Yes, it was based on legendary blockbuster with Arnold Schwarzenegger but the show itself, was very interesting and added some new "notes" to the game - Irina2932

10 Firefly Firefly Firefly is an American space Western drama television series which ran from 2002–2003, created by writer and director Joss Whedon, under his Mutant Enemy Productions label.

A list about unique sci fi series WITHOUT including firefly? It is so special, and very different from the standard sci fi scene, and still being legit sci fi. It mixes sci fi and western, and believe me, it's worth checking out. I don't usually like western OR sci fi, but this is without doubt the best show out there! - emikjeldsberg

The Contenders

11 RoboCop: The Series

I remember many RoboCop fans accused this series in lack of bloodiness and brutality. I think they judged this great series too much harsh. It focused on Murphy's family and inner world. I found it great - Irina2932

12 SeaQuest

We had many interesting shows about space but what about Underwater World? Thanks God, they made this beautiful series - Irina2932

13 Heroes
14 Code Lyoko Code Lyoko Code Lyoko is a French animated television series created by Thomas Romain and Tania Palumbo and produced by Moonscoop.

This is Unique in the sense of a digital interspace resembling earth that is connected to a girl and her father going into hiding but being attacked by there own programmed creation and the story is very unique, just watch a few episodes

15 Land of the Giants
16 Lost In Space
17 Quantum Leap

Can't believe it's not here. There are no shows remotely similar to Quantum Leap.

18 The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

The books, radio series, and T.V. series are amazing! - take
