Heroes mixes comic book abilities with absorbing drama. While ratings certainly dropped over its initial four year run, there's plenty to love about the show's earlier seasons. "Save the cheerleader. Save the world." Sense8 co-creator J. Michael Straczynski is perhaps best known for creating Babylon 5, the cerebral sci-fi TV series about desperate alien races coming together, and the conflict that creates. Despite some decidedly vintage visuals, this is a show with plenty to say, and deals with war, religion, and substance abuse, among other themes. If you like Sense 8's big ideas about tearing through the fabric of reality, but found the show some felt so painfully slow, Luke Besson's Lucy is your remedy. So in Scarlet Johansen is a woman who achieves seemingly limitless power as her brain's potentialism unlocks, this is a real fast moving action flick. Polarized critics. But if you enjoyed Wichowski's own brand of weirdness, you might just love Lucy. Canadian drama, Orphan Black is another sci-fi series with an ensemble cast.
