A few years ago, I made a science fiction TV recs list [X]
It’s still getting passed around, but my star-rating system was confusing, and the assortment of shows that I recommended were sort of all over the place.
I have now created a new science fiction TV recommendations list [X]
I hope that this one is clearer, cleaner, and more informative. I have limited it to shows that I recommend, and also to live-actions shows for the sake of simplicity
I was going to make this anyway, but in light of the pandemic, I figure that a portion of folks may have a little more TV-watching time on their hands
I have also created a fantasy TV recommendations list [X], which is also restricted to live-action media
Q: What about Star Trek shows? Clone Wars? The Mandalorian?
A: As much as I love a lot of those, I figured that I would boost science fiction that is not part of the Big Two. They might get their own post or posts one day.
Q: Why aren’t Battlestar Galactica or Firefly on this list?
A: Because I do not recommend them. I mean, I sort of recommend that people watch some amount of them both so that they can discuss the respective issues of these shows, but though I enjoyed elements of them both, they’re just not for me. They might be for you, and that’s okay!\
Q: Why isn’t Game of Thrones on the fantasy TV list?
A: It knows what it did, and so do you.
Q: Will you make any others?
A: I might make ones for, like, Witch Shows or Superpower Shows or more terrestrial scifi or urban fantasy. Maybe comedies or dramas, for that matter. It’ll depend if these two lists take off as well as my last one did.
Q: I have specific questions about content warnings for one of these
A: while I always recommend DoesTheDogDie or similar resources, feel free to shoot me an Ask or a DM, on or off Anon, any time
Q: I have watched one or more of these and would like to discuss them
A: Please reach out, by all means!
If I do make more TV recs like these, I will reblog this post with new links
