Lacking inspiration for your latest website design? Escape from reality, and fuse fantasy and technology by looking to these intoxicating Sci-Fi TV shows:
10. Buck Rogers
Paint on some spandex and help Buck Rogers solve some of earth’s dilemmas, like clients who continue to insist on music-filled Flash intros.
9. The X-Files
Uncover extraterrestrial happenings with Mulder and Scully, and use science to explain the unexplainable, including why programmers routinely go MIA, or why copywriters always whine your fonts are too small.
8. Stargate SG-1
Follow the secret military unit that travels across the universe through an ancient stargate. You’ll uncover timeless oddities, such as why so many clients believe you can conceptualize and develop a logo in five minutes.
7. The Six Million Dollar Man
“We can rebuild him, we have the technology!” Move over Steve Austin. You, too, can employ super powerful mechanical limbs and [insert bionic sound here] really put that mouse to the test. Maybe now you can develop that logo in five minutes, or less.
6. The Black Hole*
*Only go here if you’re absolutely desperate. Just leave a note in case someone needs to track you down to revise that design that was finalized and approved three weeks ago.
5. Xena: Warrior Princess
Join Xena as she uses her warrior and healing abilities to aid ancient Greece and its people. But be aware, travelling the ancient world is a strenuous adventure, much like dealing with those clients who want their websites to “wow” people with a $1,200 budget, taxes in.
4. Battlestar Galactica
Become a part of the bad-ass crew as you swerve through unexpected twists and turns, like when your clients love the first draft you present, and immediately ask for the bill.
3. Wonder Woman
Toss on those magic bracelets, turn up the porn music, do your ‘wonder spin’ to battle evil. Best to keep this one behind closed doors.
Go back to the 60s with ultra-stud Adam West. You can be boy wonder Robin and fight those nasty villains, like those labour-intensive SEO experts who screw around with your already launched sites.
1. Star Trek
Journey across the galaxy with Captain Kirk and friends. But return to home base before you have any run-ins with Klingons or other menacing creatures, like the clients who insist on pulling up a chair to teach you how to design websites.
