The 18 Best Sci-Fi TV Shows Set In Space, Ranked

Space is a scary place, as we’ve seen in countless movies and TV shows — but the thrills that come with these stories prove that while the dangers of venturing off this planet are many, there are still thrills a’plenty in the great unknown, and adventures beyond our potential comprehension.

Timed to the Season 3 premiere of Syfy’s “The Expanse” and the launch of the Netflix’s “Lost in Space” reboot, here’s a look back at all the great sci-fi television we’ve seen set in the cosmos, a rich tradition of storytelling that’s captured our imagination for decades.

Debating what counts as a “space show” is tricky, though one easy rule was that the show has to center around a spaceship or space station of some sort. Some of these selections below didn’t last all that long — several Season 1s weren’t followed by Season 2s — as television,

The Best Picture Winners of the 21st Century, Ranked from Worst to Best
The 21st century is less than two decades old, but its first batch of Best Picture winners already paint an extraordinary portrait of a world in flux. From a massive historical epic to an intimate digital indies — from a musical that riffs on showbiz standards to period drama that reflects on present crises — these 17 films range from “problematic” to “perfect” and hit all points in between. More than that, they illustrate Hollywood’s evolving definition of greatness, and the relationship between the film industry and the times that forge it.

‘Lady Bird’: Laurie Metcalf on the Art of Fighting with Saoirse Ronan
In “Lady Bird,” Laurie Metcalf is a middle-class mom who fights with her daughter — and in Metcalf’s hands, it’s a tour de force. She has a particular gift for locating the intensity in what could be mistaken for mild-mannered women. (See: three Emmys for portraying little-sister Jackie on “Roseanne.”). However, it took Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird” to get Metcalf back on a movie set for the first time in nine years.

“As an actor who doesn’t go off and create my own projects, I’m at the mercy of being hired by people to do their projects,” Metcalf told IndieWire in recent phone interview, adding with a laugh, “I guess it was just a combination of me not pursuing [film] and nobody offering.”

Nevertheless, she’s now a favorite for Best Supporting Actress Oscar this March for her portrayal of Marion McPherson,

‘Narcos’ Trailer: Season 3 Swaps Out One Drug Kingpin for Four More
The real-life figure that powered the first two seasons of “Narcos” may be gone, but it looks like the crime drama is already well on its way to another target.

Netflix released its first full look at Season 3 of the DEA-centered period show, which starts Pedro Pascal as Javier Peña, an agent who’s on to his next major investigation. This season, Peña has his sights set on the Cali Cartel, headed by a quartet of powerful ringleaders.

Read More‘Ozark’ Spoilers Review: Jason Bateman’s Netflix Drama is a Stunner From Start to Finish

A departure from the pursuits of Pablo Escobar that highlighted Seasons 1 and 2, this trailer hints that Peña won’t be alone in this new fight. Standing up the cartel’s involvement in local law enforcement and national politics will mean getting help from both U.S. and Colombian task forces.

The network just had a big hit with another dark crime series, Jason Bateman’s “Ozark.” Co-starring Laura Linney, the first season focused on the unintended (and inevitable) consequences of money laundering, especially on the fabric of a family. For fans looking for more before Season 2 of that show becomes a reality, this seems like an ideal fix until then.

Pascal’s fellow “Narcos” Season 3 cast members also include Kerry Bishé, Michael Stahl-David, Damián Alcázar, Miguel Ángel Silvestre, Hélmer Herrera, and Matt Whelan.
