Wife and I were in agreement on Expanse, after a couple episodes was not worth watching. Had no character I liked.
Anyone ever try Dark Matter? I thought season one was glorious but after that I looked forward to naps while it was on? Petered-out quick once identities revealed. Golden Compass season two is on, shutter. I dread viewing as my wife is still curious; I will enjoy the nap. I've like Westworld, but am in the minority there. Thought Watchman had one good episode of ten. It was ten, right. Loved the movie, sexy painful.
Sci-Fi series are very tricky. Few have entertained consistently like Farscape or Star Gate. Those too felt exhausted by the end. Character dynamic is important.
I enjoy many first seasons of sci-fi, but then feel the writers get rushed and have nothing else. So big bad monster aliens becomes the default. Conspiracy that can't be knitted together. I am just confused by what happened with Magicains, but each episode had something cool. Overall arc was terrible.
There are a few series, some mentioned here on Vox, that wife and I also liked, did watch with some interest but then got distracted by the new thing and never returned. There was one with a town of aliens and humans. Can't recall what it was named. It had some interesting stuff. But too much make-up to allow actors to act.
Of course, taste is taste and I do enjoy many things that no one else would understand why. But unlike humanity I try to find common ground rather than be united by what we mutually despise. Tribalism is the death of utopia.
Will there ever be anything as perfect as Kirk's Trek (even the online shows). Yes Mike, we know Dr Who, Dr Who is great, it's truly great, low budget and shot without sound reinforcement, great. (Psst, he also like Cthuhul games, sheese. and using acronyms I have to google. DMMPU)
