Space Above and Beyond
I brought this over from the Batman Begins thread.
Hands down the best Sci fi series ever. Great stories, great effects. The current Battlestar Galactica is close, but it still leaves a little cheese due to the "language" factor (frak!, cubits) at least they got the time right this time.
but Space above and beyond had a realism to it. a gritiness.
and of course the most kick ass space fighting scenes ever.
Chiggy von Richtofen fight was the best ever space battle. hands down.
