    Rather surprised this hasn't come up here. My wife happened upon this 3-season SYFI series a few nights ago and we are 4 episodes in. Its pretty good, if not a little derivative of better, past space epics like the remake of Battlestar Galactica. Special effects are top notch. Multiple plot lines keep it moving. We like Thomas Jane in the lead role from a very witty, old HBO show called Hung. I think we're in for the whole package. Find it on Amazon Prime.

    Seasons 1 and 2 are on Prime. Season 3 is current airing on syfy, which they canceled the show after having very good viewer ratings on RT. There was a huge outpouring of support on the internet. Someone launched a model of the Roci into space on a balloon with cam saying "keep the Roci flying". Amazon swooped in an picked up the show. It's worth a watch IMO.

    It's really good and its based off an excellent series of books. I highly recommend both the books and the series.

    We've been watching since the beginning.

    I should check to see what else we're watching that hasn't been mentioned here.

    Holy cow, everyone needs to be watching this show! Finished S3 during my down time a few weeks ago and it was great! I’m very glad that Amazon swooped in and picked it up because I am pumped for S4!

    I am quite interested. Haven’t started though. Read an article recently about how they at least try to ground events in science, physics, and that piqued my interest.

    We have a few episodes to go. It's as complex as ever with multiple story lines to follow, both political, military and personal. I keep thinking it would appeal to many here, given the high quality production and effects, Sci Fi genre, UHD stream and (several) attractive ladies :hearteyes:

    Finished S4 over the holidays and basically binged all 10 episodes in 2 days.
    I'm still shocked that more people (even sci-fi/ fantasy nerds that I know well) are not watching this show.

    My understanding is that S5 has been filming for a few months already, so it should be out later THIS year (probably at the very end of the year but still!)
