Undoubtedly the best sci-fi TV series ever made
1 July 2018 | by info-15063-54852See all my reviews

Orion is undoubtedly the best sci-fi TV series ever made. I recently discovered that some scenes from the first episode are clearly inspired by the Russian SF film Ikarie XB. The best programs from the early days of television were probably made by people with experience in the film industry. The famous BBC quality for drama also arose because people from the film industry started working for the BBC.
