9. Agents of SHIELD (2013- present)
So, before you slam me for calling it a sci-fi show, tell me why you disagree. It has gadgets, technology, spaceships, aliens, galaxies, and other such things. So, yes, it is a science fiction show. All Marvel devotees, please assemble at this time. The premise of this show doesn’t require an introduction. There’s no way you haven’t heard of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), the Avengers, and all of its various spin-offs and sequels. In this episode, we learn about Phil Coulson, a former member of the Avengers who is now working for S.H.I.E.L.D. ‘Agents of SHIELD’ has its own niche and fandoms despite sharing its plot and universe with the film franchise.

8. Black Mirror (2011- present)
‘Black Mirror,’ a show that is rapidly gaining in popularity, stands out from others of its kind. Aliens, time travel, and the universe are all common themes in sci-fi shows. However, this one focuses on the things that are relevant and real right now. An episode of this follows the same anthology format as Lost, with a different story each time around. Showing how technology can change us, it takes place mostly in the “not so distant” future. In lieu of thrilling action sequences, the film focuses on a complex plot that probes the depths of the human psyche.
7. The Outer Limits (1995-2002)

Both critics and viewers adored the show.

1. Star Trek (1966- present)
