My sci-fi TV motley crews keep disappearing! Give me your input, PLEASE!
Besides some sports (), the amazing Sherlock (), and a few reality (heaven forbid!) television shows (), my favorite TV offerings of the past decade all seem to have some striking similarities.Recommend
Coincidental Key Elements of My Favorite Modern Television Shows:
1. Space ship in varying states of crisis
2. Crew with wildly varied backgrounds, skill sets, personalities, and motivations
3. Premature series cancellation
To which series do I refer?
Firefly: As far as I'm concerned, this is the best television series ever made (even if some insane execs pulled the plug part way through the first season)! The characters of this ship's crew are the best things to hit television since color.
Farscape: The series starts with the one truly human main character being shot across the galaxy via a wormhole... then all chaos ensues. This show, with all manner of alien species-related plot twists, starts slow and then begins blossoming into some very creative story lines. The to-die-for cliff hanger at the end of Season Four fails to resolve when Season Five never arrives.
Dark Matter: The mysteries abound when this crew is awoken from stasis without their memories being intact. Surviving on muscle memory and their "winning personalities", the crew must form some trust and cohesion if they are going to survive. (Technically not cancelled and still in production, I'll believe Season 2 is coming when I see it.)
Parallels: This one pushes the envelope since the "space ship" is a just a visually innocuous skyscraper that doesn't move, and since the show was cancelled before it started. Falsely billed as a feature length movie, this series pilot presents a full scoop of amazing story lines that I wish had come to fruition.
All that is nice and looks great sitting in my Netflix list for anytime that I need a fix. However...
Please help me out! I'm looking for more other motley crew sci-fi options that don't include Element #3, Premature Series Cancellation.
