Outer space is everywhere: Not only are we physically surrounded by it, but we’re inundated with images of it, both real and fictional. Whether a story unfolds in the past, the present, or the future - in our own galaxy or one far, far away - space makes a great setting for films and TV shows.
For most of us, watching TV shows about space is the closest we’ll ever get to the astronaut experience. And most importantly, the inhuman emptiness of space forces characters to confront their private fears and self-doubts even as it inspires existential and epistemological questions that fascinate us all. It’s no wonder that show-makers all around the world never stops making space movies. With that said let’s look at the list of top space TV shows.
10. First Wave (1998-2001)
‘First Wave’ is outstanding, passionate sci-fi action drama. This is a show that lives in real time, a show that is intelligent and full of raw emotion. The performances are never flat. It is a sci-fi show that is imaginative while at the same time being very down-to-earth. In a way their reality is much like ours. While the Gua, an alien race that are both highly intelligent and extremely ruthless quietly prepares to conquer and destroy, humanity in general (with the exception of Cade, Ed, and Jordan) still don’t believe in aliens at all, pretty good premise.
