Shows like Prison Break: Engineers doing Their Thing

If you've always dreamed about going to MIT, these are the shows for you. Engineers doing what they do best- solving really hard problems - typically for the good, but then those ChemEs can go off the rails. We're looking at you BrBa.

Shows like For All Mankind: Hard Science Fiction

What makes science fiction "hard" is a respect for logic and adherence to the known laws of physics, versus "soft" science fiction which assumes we can innovate around any limitation (often including holes in a plot). Hardness is pretty subjective (just check out the debates on Reddit), but this list includes series that are generally seen to qualify.

Shows Like Pure Genius: Tech Geniuses at Work

Elon Musk's favorite list: the heroes of these shows are all tech geniuses, who harness their intelligence and resources towards the good, or sometimes downfall, of mankind. Too real?

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 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).
