The Expanse: Vox's Favorite Fall TV Show

Monday, September 21, 2015 - 15:00

The Fall TV season is upon us, and with it many a Fall TV Preview listing the season's best and worst offerings.

And what's No. 1 on Vox's Best Of list? Syfy's own The Expanse.

"I didn't know I needed another space opera so much until I watched the thoroughly entertaining pilot for The Expanse, which somehow combines a private detective story, a politically deft tale of the build-up to war, and a bunch of sci-fi tropes into a big, intriguing stew," writes's Todd VanDerWerff. "It's not yet Battlestar Galactica (what is?), but it's the closest any sci-fi show has come since that show left the air to capturing some of its charm."

The Expanse was highest on a list that also includes such high-profile offerings as Fox's The Grinder, The CW's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, CBS's Supergirl and ABC's The Muppets. That's some good company!
