Dark City

aka The Matrix for Goths (and also it came out before the Matrix)
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Ooo, I like Dark City.

EDIT: Though I swear I've had a conversation like this with Brandon before way back and he said he'd seen it.
Could be misremembering though.

Moon I guess?
Though everyone knows that one by now.

And if you're ok with a book there's Perdido Street Station.
People like that one, but I havent read it myself yet so I dunno.

Quote from: Krakow sam
That quote is actualy very witty, Celdur. I suggest you use that in your signature.

I hear The Expanse is good.

I know The Strain is not good but I still enjoy it.
Probably not a Goat, either.

This is an important question!

Space Opera?
Cyberpunk?
Post-Apocolypse?
Contemporary?
Robots?
Aliens?
Giant monsters?

There are many options.
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Space Opera isn't Sci-fi >:(

Star Wars isn't Sci-fi.

I'll fight anyone who says a Star War is a scifi

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Why isn't it sci fi

cause it ain't "science" fiction - sci-fi is meant to imagine consequences of technological and scientific advances and how they impact society

it's often considered "science fantasy" which is a blend of sci fi and fantasy

deep space nine lol

thought you left
No way dude, you're trolling me.

A wise Surface to Air Missile once said about marrying 9 year olds in Saudi Arabia "Its pretty hard to tell if a 9 year old is going to be hot when she grows up, kids change a lot, usually, seems like a bad system. That cute little nine year old you married could end being a fat, zitty teenager."

This is weird, right?  That the word no one is arguing about is the one that's dropped but the one in contention stays?

Get your act together, English, you're embarrassing us.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

Eh, I tend to call it space fantasy.

Space Opera is a nice one as well and certainly applies to the Star War
