Allow us to help. Advertisement Here’s some of our absolute favorite science fiction shows that we can watch over and over again (and the storm is just the perfect excuse we need). GIF AwakeAwake was an underrated show that never seemed to attract the audience it deserved. Despite that, it was a brilliant show, following a detective who keeps waking up in two universes: one in which his son survived a car accident, the other in which his wife survived. Advertisement Where you can find it: Netflix GIF Battlestar GalacticaOne of the greatest science fiction shows out there, Battlestar Galactica defined what it meant for modern speculative fiction to absolutely rock. Dark, thoughtful and slightly bonkers at points, it’s one of the shows that blew us away. Where you can watch it: Hulu GIF DaredevilThe first of Marvel’s Netflix shows, Daredevil blew us away with its darker take on the MCU. This is an intense show, with some fantastic acting and quite a bit of great action. Plus, once you’re done, you should check out Jessica Jones. Advertisement Sponsored Where you can find it: Netflix GIF Dark MatterOne of the two space opera shows that SyFy debuted this summer, Dark Matter was one that I had a lot of fun watching. It’s firmly in the camp of shows like Andromeda, Firefly and Farscape, about a starship’s crew and their random adventures after they all lose their memories. Where you can find it: Netflix GIF DollhouseJoss Whedon’s other cancelled Fox TV show. Dollhouse actually made it to a second season, and we loved it. Starring an excellent cast that included the likes of Eliza Dushku, Fran Kranz, Tahmoh Penikett, Enver Gjokaj, Dichen Lachman, Reed Diamond, and Amy Acker, this story about a facility that can reprogram people was one of our favorites. Where you can find it: Amazon Streaming, Netflix GIF Europa ReportThis found footage film about a mission to Jupiter’s moon Europa is a tense thriller that got everything right. If you haven’t checked it out yet, it’s time. Advertisement Advertisement Where you can find it: Netflix GIF The ExpanseThe Expanse is the show that we’ve been waiting to see since Battlestar Galactica went off the air. It’s deeply political, exciting and tense, and it’s easily the best science fiction show on the airwaves now. The show is currently airing, but this is a good time to get caught up and to see what everyone is talking about. Where you can find it: Hulu, SyFy. GIF FarscapeThis gem of a show is one that was just amazing. Original, wacky and just plain fun to watch, the adventures of hapless astronaut John Crichton lost in space is a classic show, and it’s one that we hope that we’ll see again someday. Advertisement Where you can find it: Netflix GIF FireflyYou can’t talk about binge watching a science fiction show without mentioning Firefly somewhere. It lasted for a mere 14 episodes, but it’s become one of those cult shows that’s become an outright classic ever since it went off the air. Advertisement Where you can find it: Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu GIF Galaxy QuestAlan Rickman died earlier this week. You should watch this to honor him. Advertisement Where you can find it: Netflix GIF KilljoysAlong with the aforementioned Dark Matter, Killjoys was SyFy’s return to form this year with space opera. It’s fun, with an interesting story and some entertaining characters that reminded us a bit of the classic space-based shows that we grew up with. Where you can find it: Hulu, SyFy GIF Life On Mars (UK)This is probably my most favored show of all time. A cop is hit by a car and wakes up in 1973, where he’s trying to figure out if he’s actually travelled in time, or if he’s just in a coma. Brilliant acting, stories and an ending that blew everyone away. Don’t bother watching the US version. Plus, there’s a cool Bowie connection. Advertisement Advertisement Where you can find it: Hulu GIF Man In The High CastleThis adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s famous novel is fantastic. It’s a dark, outstanding drama of a world in which the United States and its allies lost the Second World War. It’s got an excellent story, phenomenal production values, and we can’t wait for Season 2. Where you can find it: Amazon Streaming GIF Orphan BlackWe love this show, from Tatiana Maslany’s fantastic acting to the strange and excellent story that has come together over the last couple of seasons. This is definitely a show to get hooked on. Advertisement Where you can find it: Amazon Streaming GIF Person of InterestThis is probably the show that we love the most. It’s brilliant, explores some amazing ideas, and it’s just flat out awesome. Seriously, if you have’t watched this yet, you really should. Advertisement Where you can find it: Netflix GIF Rick and MortyI got hooked on this show a while back, and I can’t remember seeing a animated science fiction show that I had as much fun watching as Futurama. The adventures of mad scientist Rick and his meek grandson Morty are enormously addicting. Not all of the episodes are free to watch on Adult Swim’s website, but there’s a good chunk that are well worth checking out.

Earth has frozen over, and a circumglobal train holds the last remains of humanity in a heavily segregated society. It’s a helluva a lot of fun. Advertisement Where you can find it: NetflixThe ColonyNot the TV show, but the 2013 B-movie, but it’s a ridiculous amount of fun. Earth has frozen over, and when one colony gets a distress call, Laurence Fishburne sets out to find out what happened to them. It’s just one of those films that’s perfect for a snow day. Advertisement Where you can find it: NetflixTroll HunterThis film flat out rocked. It might look like it’s a cheesy, found footage horror film, and there’s certainly elements of that, but it’s an utterly brilliant and another entertaining movie for a snow day.
