Fair, and moody, but it feels like there should be more content.

  • Original title: Das Signal

A astronaut has an accident in space and comes back crazy.

It's like a sort of brooding bubblegum show; light on the science, heavy on the fiction, and with some horror mixed in.

Survivors of a ruined Earth cast away to a new Earth, aptly called "New Earth", but some people are stupid and prefer extinction (for that ship).

The found footage of the travel to, and exploration of, one of the moons of Jupiter in the search for extraterrestrial life.

It's slow and focused, with a consistent and weighty tone. If you like it within the first fifteen minutes, you'll like the rest of 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.

A prequel to Star Trek - (1966 show) but with canon revisionism.

Boss girls, shit exposition, sprinkled with wokeness, too many distractingly-ugly women.

  • Properly titled Star Trek: Strange New Worlds
