Didn't Find What You Were Looking For?

Shows like Firefly: Ragtag Misfits Save the World

When the stakes are high do you call in a well functioning team of professionals--hell no, you call in a random assortment of idiosyncratic individuals who must come together as a team to complete the mission.

Shows Like Man in the High Castle: Dystopian Futures

Whether the ruling class are Nazis or aliens (no Nazi aliens, fortunately), the societies they enforce are pretty damn unappealing.

Shows like The Mandalorian: Resistance is Not Futile

Whether the enemy be oppressive government or alien invaders, the resistance is armed with that most dangerous of mankind's weapons: Hope. Oh, also guns. Those help too.

Shows like Firefly: TV Space Operas A-Z

Animated, live-action, classic, modern, slick, cheesy: we've got the whole range of TV space operas on this list, for every kid who dreamed of being an astronaut and wound up at Comic-Con instead.

Shows like Falling Skies: When Aliens Invade TV

After they got tired of anal probing night-fishermen, the extraterrestrials in this list decided to invade earth; a trickier proposition, but probably less depressing on the day in day out.

Shows like Away: Recent Astronaut Dramas

The recent dramas (and a few melodramas) focus on NASA astronaut, their interactions with fellow crew members, and the families they leave behind--spoiler alert several of these are more space soap opera than sci-fi space opera.

Shows like Firefly: 21st Century Space Opera Shows

Ok, we get it: the early Star Trek series were great, but production values have come a long way since then, which is why we put together this list of space opera shows from the turn of the 21st century--(okay we cheated a bit by including Star Trek: Deep Space 9, but it did extend until 1999).
