Amazon Top 10 List Filled With Sci-Fi

Picture_12Amazon has released their list of the Top 10 Fantasy and SciFi Genre Related DVD Sellers in June, 2007. Here’s the list:

10 – Eureka – Season 1
9 – Smallville – Season 6
8 – Pans Labyrinth
7 – Ghost Rider
6 – Babylon 5: The Lost Tales
5 – Stargate Atlantis – Season 3
4 – Lost – Season 3
3 – Bridge to Terabithia
2 – Heroes – Season 1
1 – Stargate SG-1 – Season 10

It is absolutely insane how mainstream science-fiction has gotten: almost all of the top ten genre DVDs are sci-fi television season DVD sets (including Stargate SG-1, which was recently canceled).

What we’re looking at is not only a renaissance of science-fiction in Hollywood, but a new business model for television: it’s getting to the point where a weekly episode is just an hour-long trailer for the eventual DVD release. At what point will television shows be cancelled or renewed based solely upon the last season’s DVD sales?
