- Suggest me some Sci-fi
Expanse, firefly, new battlestar galactica, star trek discovery,
Curveball —- Rick & Morty you should probably watch them in order but the Ricklantis Mix up in season 3 is proper bleak sci-fi that Charlie Brooker would be proud ofPosted 4 months agomartinhutchMember
Must admit I binged most of season 2-4 so I was ‘abreast’ of what was actually going on. If I’d waited a year between series I’d quite possibly be struggling.
I generally judge how good something is by whether I’m likely to go and buy the dvd box-set if the series I want isn’t available to stream. I think I’ve done it for season 4 of this, season 2 of 24 and some GoT. Which may also tell the OP if he’s likely to like it!
Most recent season of ST was ace.Posted 4 months agojohnnersMember
Battlestar Galactica – the remake, not the original.
I loved it when it was first shown but a lot of it doesn’t bear a rewatch, and some that does stand up has lost a lot of its edge, particularly the occupation/insurgency stuff which was broadcast at the time of some of the worst of the Iraq War aftermath. The main arc disappears up its own arse around S4, I think they plotted themselves into a corner they couldn’t write their way out of. The mini series and Razor still stand up well though.Posted 4 months agozilog6128Subscriber
Was OK, right up to the point near the end when it became less so.
unlike the original which was SOLID GOLD all the way through 😂 (Actually the very last episode was quite interesting sci-fi, Starbuck and a Cylon both crash and are stranded forever on a seemingly uninhibited planet, end up becoming buds as they decide killing each other would be pointless)
Is The Boys sci-fi ?
Yes, more so than some of the other shows mentioned here, which are just dramas that happen to be set in space/the future.Posted 4 months agoCougarSubscriber
The Orville, not that I could get into it, might try to come back to it later.
That’s a good shout actually, I was expecting it to be terrible but it’s far, far better than it has any right to be. It’s a bit lumpy to start with, basically Star Trek: TNG with nob gags, but it gets less schoolboy after a few eps.Posted 4 months agonickcSubscriber

Sure, they were different things though. I liked the re-booted BG, right up the point the writers decided to Kill Starbuck for no other reason other than it would be cool, (after the event, that was the reason the writers gave, figuring out they could sort the story out later on…yes, they actually said that) then resurrect her for no other reason than it would be cool, (see the reasons given before…) and end the entire thing thing with “It was God”… dum, dum, dhurrr… I think they all just got bored, and couldn’t be arsed with it anymore.Posted 4 months ago
