I recall seeing four new TV series that appeared on the SciFi channel about the same time. Two of them were Farscape and First Wave. Unfortunately, I cannot recall the other two. According to IMDb, they both started in the US on the SciFi channel in early 1999. Can anyone tell me the other two?

According to Wikipedia, Farscape debuted on the Sci-Fi (SyFy) Channel on March 19, 1999 and First Wave debuted on September 9, 1998.

Other shows that debuted in that general time frame were:

  • Sliders, which was not a new show. It debuted on Sci-Fi on Jun 6, 1998, but previously had been on FOX.
  • Poltergeist: The Legacy debuted on the Sci-Fi Channel on March 19, 1999, but it previously had been on Showtime.
  • Welcome to Paradox debuted on August 17, 1998. This was an anthology series where all the stories took place in Betaville.
  • Good vs. Evil debuted on July 18, 1999. A comedy sci-fi series about God recruiting people who had died to help fight demons. It is currently showing on NBC's Chiller channel.

Other shows debuted before 1998 or after 1999.
