Hey this is my first post. I have resently getting into sci-fi, and are quite loving it.
So now i thing it's time to start getting in to the fantasy genre.
so my question is, can you recommend some fantasy tv-series or movies there are good starting up with?

Firefly is fun, entertaining, and action packed.

It is only 14 episodes so it's a good small series to start off with, then if you enjoy it there's a movie to sate you as well.

NO! Build up to Firefly. After the epic awesomeness that is Mal, all that you see with be ashes to your eyes. (Firefly is the best ever, ever)

But, yeah, Firefly. Then start writing River fan fiction. That's what you'll do with February.

Fantasy is a pretty decent genre to jump in to.
I suggest after you check out Firefly (good call on that one by the by) you should start ploughing through this list of mostly decent fantasy shows:

Game of Thrones
The Twilight Zone
Legend of the Seeker
Supernatural
Smallville
Being Human (UK is much better in my opinion)
Dead Like Me
Eureka
Xena: Warrior Princess
Hercules: The Legendary Journeys

After all of those are watched, your brain will be so full of wizards, monsters, quirky charm, epic sword fights and sultry maidens that you could quite possibly explode.

My work here is done.

It is perfectly acceptable to fear and admire a being you could not possibly understand.

Hercules: The Legendary Journeys


I second this! I recently started watching this with my dad on the weekends, definitely worth a look if you haven't already.

I just started watching Merlin, that's a pretty good one to start watching. Pretty simple concept haha, just Merlin in his younger years helping Arthur become a king :)
