It’s been far too long since Syfy got this much right in a TV show. The Expanse delivers the sci-fi political thriller/space opera I've been waiting for. Battlestar Galactica is likely to be a common comparison, since both shows have epic scopes and futuristic technology that looks lived in. I love it so far!
With its amazing 80s atmosphere and creepy X-files meets E.T feel this show is set to impress. Within its first minutes of run time I could tell I had found something special here in Stranger Things. Its intriguing story gives information at a great pace and I never felt myself getting confused or bored. The characters of the show are the true stars here, the casting is perfect. I'm hooked!
It's not The Walking Dead, that much should be clear, but that doesn't have to be a bad thing. Z Nation surprised me by not even trying to copy The Walking Dead, but instead doing its own thing. It's funny, self-aware and has the right amount of campy, but still decent special effects and wacky characters. Where Walking Dead is sometimes very grim, this is more fun and tongue-in-cheek. I like both.
