    I’m looking for TV shows to watch in the Sci-fi genre.

    I’ve already seen;
    Altered Carbon
    Lost in Space
    The 100
    Travelers
    Another life

    What’cha got for me?

    The expanse is well worth a watch.

    And seeing as you obviously have a netflix sub there is all the star trek… All of it.

    Seen both of them.

    I didn’t really think much of Westworld. Watched S1 and couldn’t be bothered to watch S2.

    Battlestar Galactica – the remake, not the original.

    Farscape.

    Firefly.

    Star Trek: Discovery (if you can get through the first few episodes, it does improve I promise).

    I’m currently rewatching series 1 of Heroes. I’m enjoying it immensely.

    I’m also a bit “meh” about Star Trek Discovery.

    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 of

    Blake’s 7.
    It’s about a seven year old named Blake who watches Blake’s 7.

    Rick and Morty depending on how twisted your sense of humour is. If it’s your thing it’s sheer brilliance. They throw away better ideas every 2 minutes than most sci-fi writers have in a lifetime.

    Is The Boys sci-fi ?

    You should watch anyway, it’s brilliant (what heroes could’ve been)

    The Boys on Amazon Prime. (Not sure if it’s exactly what you’re looking for, it’s sort of SF).

    edit: great minds, kimbers 🙂

    Buck Rogers in the 25th Century…

    You’re watching it for the deep exploration of gender dynamics in the future?

    Or just for Colonel Wilma?

    The Orville, not that I could get into it, might try to come back to it later.

    Futurama – you can watch with family unlike Rick and Morty!

    From series 2 onwards it just gets better and better.

    I enjoyed the first season. By season 4, I’d forgotten what it was about so it made no sense. I gave up about half way through season 4.

    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!

    Stranger Things.

    Most recent season of ST was ace.

    Was OK, right up to the point near the end when it became less so.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I enjoyed Counterpart and was peaved when I saw it’d been cancelled, but that was just a clever spy drama with a sci-fi backdrop. The Expanse is the best thing I’ve seen in a long time

    Oh and not strictly sci-fi either but imho probably the best series I’ve ever seen is The Leftovers.

    This I agree with.

    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.

    Fringe – the first season wasn’t that good, but from the second season onwards it was great!

    Rick and Morty?
    The OA was strangely addictive.
    Stargate Atlantis and the one after it.
