Topic: A revival?


The space opera genre used to be popular. In the 1990s-2000s we had shows like Battlestar Galactica, Babylon 5, Firefly, Farscape, and Star Trek. For a while the genre seems to have died on TV. No current shows take place aboard a spaceship.

Now Guardians of the Galaxy has been a huge success. It is the highest grossing movie of 2014. Can this movie along with movies like Interstellar and Jupiter Ascending start a revival for the space opera genre? We also have the new Star Wars movie.

SyFy finally got its head out of its behind and is giving us the Expanse. FX is making John Scalzi's Redshirts a limited series.

On the video game front we have No Man's Sky and Star Citizen. Bioware is developing a new Mass Effect game.

Will the 2010s be the decade of the space opera?

I watched a few of these and they were decent. Hale Berry's in it and she's a wonderful actress. Her nose looks a little different, but it's still her.

If you don't like what they are showing on TV; turn it off.
