Sci-Fi TV has blossomed into one of the most popular television genres out there, boasting out-of-this-world adventures and intriguing supernatural settings. The 21st century has allowed Sci-Fi TV to take off with the development of stunning CGI, outgrowing the campy and cliched genre that it once was.
With the rise of streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime and HBO Max, the availability of both classic and brand-new Sci-Fi is now right at your fingertips all of the time. Inevitably, this has morphed into fierce competition. Writers are fighting for ratings, struggling to find the next big plotline that will draw in more viewers. And as each series is battling against the other, some writers play some big risks in the name of competition.
But all shots are not always a hit. Sometimes, writers slip up and deliver a shocking moment in a series that leaves us more furious than enthralled; moments that leave you so annoyed they make you want to change the channel or close down your laptop.
Almost all Sci-Fi TV shows have fallen victim to this one-off blunder, but some have fallen harder than others.
