The problem I have with these shows (netflix/Amazon) is there are so many of them, and I've watched so many of them, I can't tell one from another, or remember which one's I've watched and which one's I haven't.

A few weeks ago I got the notificaton that season 2 of The Colony is available. "Hmmm... I guess I must have watched season 1?" Nothing is familiar and it's been a year, so I have to watch season 1 over just to know what the heck I'm on about.

I have Ascension on my watch list. I guess I watched season 1. No recollection of it. I've watched 6-8 of these series now and they've all blurred into one.

We had binge watched the 100 as well but eventually stopped after it went downhill after a few seasons. The ones based off books like the expanse and the new Altered Carbon on Netflix seeem to be more fleshed our with interesting details.

"...The cancellation decision by Syfy is said to be linked to the nature of its agreement for the series, which only gives the cable network first-run linear rights in the U.S. That puts an extraordinary amount of emphasis on live, linear viewing, which is inherently challenging for sci-fi/genre series that tend to draw the lionís share of their audiences from digital/streaming...."

Oh no

This season is not as good, I have to admit... but it had very good potential.

This likely be the next Firefly.

The problem is that the plot is not easy to follow. 

There is also an issue with character development this season .... you can tell the actors are having a hard time realizing the personality of the character they are playing.  At times they overreact and other times under react or are playful when things clearly call for a more concerned and serious attitude.

Hmmm oh well

I haven't had a chance to watch this season yet but it's rather exciting that it's going to keep going. It's one of the best shows on TV and it exercises those new 4k TVs.

I just got a faux-K projector and have started watching the show from the beginning again with my wife in ultra HD on amazon. Looks amazing.

Fauxk are good enough specially if you get HDR with it.

You would need to have th eyes of a hawk to tell the difference.  If there is one to be seen.  True 4k worth having is prohibitively expensive and the media for is is still lacking ... add to that now they are talking about 8K.  ...  1080P and UHD (lens shifting) is more than enough to enjoy all the movies available now. Imo

Congrats
