Sci-fi tv shows are a class apart from regular tv drama series

Sci-fi TV shows are a class apart from regular TV drama series. They have many special effects and sound mixing that goes well with both teenagers and adult viewers. The most talked about sci-fi drama shows are ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Doctor Who’. However, two very important shows have made a mark on their own right and are a delight to watch even today.

The X Files

The X-Files is America’s most popular science fiction TV series that gained immense popularity in the late 1990’s. The lead characters Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are known faces throughout the world because the series is repeatedly broadcast in many local channels even today.

The show has 141 nominations in many award categories and has won 61 individual awards from different agencies. The show has won many Emmy awards under categories like – graphic design, title sequences, cinematography, sound editing, mixing, makeup, camera etc. What has endeared the series over all these years is the gripping story line and fantastic star cast. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson need special mention for their convincing portrayal of FBI agents.

Twin Peaks

Another FBI based science fiction TV show that caught the viewer’s imagination is ‘Twin Peaks’. It was one of the top rated shows of the 1990’s and was critically acclaimed at the international level. Twin Peaks has devout fan bases who continue to watch the series, which is being aired sporadically on NBC channel.

Kyle MacLachlan who has portrayed the lead character of Agent Dale Cooper needs special mention; whose eccentric character is still fondly remembered by fans across the world. Twin Peaks won eight nominations in the 1990 Emmy’s and managed to win two awards for costume design and editing. Though not as popular as The X-Files, it had a dedicated fan following during its course of telecast.

The shows are available on DVD and Internet TV. Watching TV episodes online is fun, especially on a Saturday night with a big group of friends. Check out one of these during this weekend and learn how to expect the unexpected to happen.
