I've always wanted to see the foundation series turned into a Movie or TV series

If you add in the prequels that were added later plus the 2nd trilogy added later to complete the story, you have the makings of a 5 season series like Game of Thrones. Would love to see it happen.

You can watch The Expanse online on November 23rd.

There is also a new Star Trek in the works.

Are we on the verge of a space opera revival?

I certainly hope so! It is time to expand people's horizons once again.

Who is excited for The Syfy's The Expanse? I hope with this and Star Wars we are at the beginning of a space opera revival!



My wife is childhood friends with Daniel Abraham and has kept in touch with him over the years. He is very enthusiastic about this adaptation of his books. The series pilot has been getting outstanding reviews, so I'm cautiously optimistic that we're in for a good ride.

I gave up on the Star Wars franchise some years ago. I hope that this latest doesn't salt the earth like episodes I-III did so thoroughly, but-quite frankly-I just don't care that much any more. It's one of a number of different "universes" out there-by no means the greatest rendition.

I'm enjoying the Star Trek reboots very much. One of those is coming out mid-2016, so I'm looking forward to that too.

I liked the storm trooper movies would enjoy seeing another of those. And anticipating some time District9. That movie left you hanging asking a lot of what-ifs.

The first episode is free online.

What do you think? Will this be the show that brings space opera back to TV?

Chickenboy,

You need to try the first season of the SyFy TV Series “12 Monkeys”
Very good characters, good story and some mind blowing time travel.

Be sure to start with the pilot and follow straight through.
A real mind bender.
