As we continue to deal with COVID-19 and as we deal with the January doldrums, many of us have turned to various video streaming options. Here is a list of TV shows that EvilC recommends for those dark winter, COVID nights:
Hopefully, if you an Outer Rim Pilot, you have already seen this show. If you haven’t may your god have mercy on your soul and may you enjoy your life when you get shipped to the Core with all those pussies that watch the Gilmour Girls and This Is Us.
Anyway, WATCH or REWATCH. I guarantee you will enjoy and have many laughs. This is Sci-Fi TV and Joss Whedon at his best. And how can you resist the charms of Inara, Kaylee and Zoe!
‘Nuff said! The Sci-Fi hit of 2020. Not as good as Firefly but still awesome! Guaranteed to fill the Star Wars Fanboy’s stocking with guest appearances and geek filled excitement – lovely stuff! REWATCH – you are sure to spot things you did not see the first time around or the second time around! Personally, I want a Cara Dune, Shock Trooper series – I can wish!
Superheroes with a twist! What do you do when you live in a world where the Supes are interested in endorsements, image and the bottom line, at the cost of the public’s safety? You hope you have The Boys nearby! Violent, explosive, lots of swearing, zero fucks given, funny and simply DIABOLICAL! You need to watch this now! May not be the best show ever but is still awesome and refreshing in a PC world.
A US Marshal becomes Sheriff of the small town of Eureka, Oregon. Little does he know that the local industry is a secret government operation that invents futuristic inventions. Lots of humour and weird events keep this show fresh and charming. The Christmas, animated episode is a work of genius! This show if family fun!
Remember the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark, when the Ark was placed ina warehouse full of other crates. That warehouse could very well be Warehouse 13. Two Federal Agents are unwittingly placed in Warehouse 13 as guardians of the Warehouse and are sent out into the world to collect other dangerous historic artifacts before they can create havoc.
The world of Warehouse 13 is set in the same universe as Eureka – they had a two part crossover event. It has the same tongue in cheek humour as Eureka.
The premise for the show is solid and it follows through with drama and humour. Like Eureka, it is a shame that they both ended.
Fun for the geek family.
SOME NOT SCI-FI FUN:
Here are some non sci-fi shows that are worth watching:
Comedy – 30 ROCK – this shows has amazing writing and a great cast. How can you not love Liz Lemon, Jack McDonaghy and Tracy Jordan!! Fucking hilarious! WATCH
Drama – BIG SKY – a recent TV show that you can catch up on through ON DEMAND (free). Set in Montana, it is a private detective drama that deals with, so far, human trafficking. My wife and daughter cannot wait for it to start up again soon. Enough twists and turns and surprises to keep you wanting more.
