    Yeah, this list is terrible. Here is the real list.

    1. (tie) Futurama
    1. (tie) MST3k
    1. (tie) Rick and Morty
    2. The Venture Bros
    3…..Some other stuff.

    Honestly, I have tried to watch Red Dwarf and I simply find it smarmy, grating and loathsome.

    there is one I would put on this list that's "The Middleman" an ABC Family production which only lasted one season but great fun and sadly underrated

    Futurama or Rick & Morty for me… I don't understand why so much love for Red Dwarf. It really hasn't stood the test of time all that well. Good ideas for stories in the first few series, fun characters, but the jokes were often clangy (especially from S5 onwards) and the acting just fucking hammy. It's like watching a school production where they're all trying really hard to cover the fact that there's no budget or dynamism.

    Firefly wasn't even a comedy. Sure it had comedic elements but there was a lot more to it than that. It shouldn't be on the list, as much as I love it.

    3rd rock from the sun better than Red Dwarf? I couldn't disagree more. That said, i understand you need to have an American show at number 1.

    Many red dwarf fans aren't happy. Bed even Rimmer wasn't happy to be mentioned often

    Absolutely loved Quark for the plant based crew member. I'm surprised more shows hadn't made use of Ficus like crew mates or Delvians of Farscape.

    Funny how all the comments are about Red Dwarf not being in the #1 spot, but no one noticed that Rick & Morty only got an "honorable mention"

    Red Dwarf at 2? Rick and Morty only an honorable mention – Watch Mojo, this is your worst list since you put Freddie Mercury at number 2 on rock front men.

    Red Dwarf is the best on the list, bar none. The first five series in particular. And I would put Hitchikers guide to the Galaxy on the top ten list. Good to see the underrated Hyperdrive made it. It didn't get the recognition it deserves, and is badly in need of repeat showings on the BBC.

    watchmojo listen to you fans, red dwarf should have been number one. Oh and ricky and morty being an honorable mention is lots of kind of wrong. Do an updated video and include The Orville

    I know they don't count but I would have mentioned Spaced and Community just for all the nods and winks to the SF genre.

    Red dwarf should be number 1, and I'm not sure third rock should even be on this list at all let alone number 1.

    Series 1-6 of red dwarf are some of the best tv ever made, of any genre. Alas after the gestalt entity that was Grant Naylor became 2 distinct separate entities again the writing went down hill and after season six it’s a bit meh.

    The big problem is the mix of cartoon and live action. Two need to be separated.
