A man is sent into deep space with an artificial intelligence to help with his sanity.

It's moody and has lots of feelings, sex, and bright lights.

An alternate Earth is discovered somehow, and for unknown reasons the mission to explore it comes back to a ruined Earth.

The writing is just terrible; I don't know what the fuck they were thinking with the plot or the world-building.

Criminals are sent to Mars to fight super-cockroaches.

Oh my god this is so Japanese and so bad. I couldn't finish it..

After a disaster, a pleasure theme park re-opens with a new population of robots.

Although this one has held up well, it does show its age. It's still spectacularly well-made, and especially well-written.

Its first impression is that it's sort of Star Trek parody-thing, it quickly unfolds into its own unique space-adventure-drama.

Fantastic originality and mood. Recommended, rapidly approaching highly recommended.

Verdict: While it's good, it's not great, at least not for me. I got bored in the first couple of episodes of season two. Definitely recommended for anyone who enjoyed the first several episodes.

Like other shows these days, I became interested in this purely because "those people" "hate" it.

In the far future, the scarcity of water prompts pirates to steal ice, but they are swept up into a rebellion.

Swashbuckling-and-blasters, this movie is cheezy without being funny. I think it has some cult following merely because there wasn't much of interest back then, and this style of movie was popular for reasons outside of quality entertainment. This is like some sort of movie version of shitposting.

Absolutely not recommended, as it doesn't tick any boxes outside of nostalgia.

Build and expand a space-faring race who learns they are not alone in the universe.

Master of Orion - (1993 game) but with updated graphics and a confusing interface. I expect would have loved this in the past, but now it's just awkward. I'll still tag this as 'liked', as it's pretty good. It's very hard in the eyes. Take a lot of breaks.

Extremely stupidly hard.. and confusing. I'm shelving it. I only paid $12 USD for it, so it's not a big loss.. still, I wish the UI was better and the tutorial was better and the gameplay was better..

A ship malfunctions, and a passenger on a deep-space voyage to a new colony is woken from hibernation early.

Good and not good at the same time. It works out quite well, and has a good overall tone to it, but the story itself is sad.
