8 sci-fi series we wish would use Kickstarter to come back to TV

Veronica Mars just raised $2 million in a single day through crowd funding. Who says sci-fi can't do the same? 

While we recognize that much of sci-fi relies on space battles and high-budget special effects, the truth is that some of the best the genre has to offer came in the form of more low-fi-grounded fare. Many of those shows ended before their time. More still simply have been gone for so long that we feel like they are due for a comeback.

With that in mind, we present eight shows we think should get their proverbial butts to Kickstarter and let their fans help them bring these characters, concepts and dreams back. Whether it's a movie, a miniseries or an all-out new season, we're game for anything.
