Space, the final frontier.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a top-tens list, and for my first one of the year, I wanted to do a TV one, like I did to start off 2019. Now, as a writer and a part-time reader, I’m a bit of a hypocrite when I say (or tweet)¬†write more, tv less. But, in my defense, the kind of TV I watch inspires me (I don’t care, that’s a good excuse lol), gives me all kinds of story ideas, characters, etc. “What kind of TV?” you ask. Space shit. lol. Like old school, nineties, cheesy space dramas… and some new ones.

So, this top ten list is my favorite Space shows of all time. No explanation, just the list… love it or hate it.

Babylon 5
