“Like I said! The world is a horrible place filled with fear, suffering, and despair! And you didn’t believe me.”

I still don’t! Look at the sun. It’s still shining. Look at the kelp. It’s still kelping. Look at us. We still have each other...”

i love this actual ray of sunshine


You all knew this was coming.

I will try to spoil as little as possible in this review because I want all of you to watch this and enjoy it fully.

CONCEPT: Humans have colonized the solar system. Earth is ruled by the UN, Mars is a military power (ayyy because Mars is the god of war how smart), both of them control the Asteroid Belt. Tensions are high between all three parties. Our story starts when one girl goes missing and discovers something amazing.

- Visually stunning. Every shot is beautiful, and the color themes are amazing. Even the opening titles are mind-blowing.
- Diverse cast. Despite the protagonist being a white guy, the supporting cast includes almost twice as many PoC as it does white people.
- Lack of romance. After the first episode, this series is devoid of distracting romantic subplots.
- Political turmoil. For the first half of the season, the show seems more like a geopolitical drama than a sci-fi epic. The tensions between planets seem real, and quite scarily so.
- Mysteries and conspiracies. The show centers around one conspiracy (which I won’t go into because spoilers), and there are plenty more where that came from. There are also spies and lies and it’s great.
- Complex characters. None of the people in this show are 100% good or evil (well, maybe one of them is). Every character has history and fears and flaws.
- Excellent worldbuilding. The show actually addresses how each planet would affect people’s physiology.
- Smart. It gives constant nods to Don Quixote and Greek/Roman/Egyptian mythology. If you’re into that, this is the show for you.
- Space battles. Finally, if you’re looking for some ships getting blown up and pew pew pew lasers, this show has that.


This is the best science fiction movie/show I have ever seen in my life. It’s beautiful, diverse, smart, and just plain good. The entire first season is available legally and for free on the Syfy Now app.

Mr. Robot (2015)

Hello friend. Hello friend? That’s lame. Maybe I should give you a name. But that’s a slippery slope, you’re only in my head, we have to remember that. Shit, this actually happened, I’m talking to an imaginary person. What I’m about to tell you is top secret. A conspiracy bigger than all of us. There’s a powerful group of people out there that are secretly running the world. I’m talking about the guys no one knows about, the ones that are invisible. The top 1% of the top 1%, the guys that play God without permission. And now I think they’re following me.
