Weird western Wynonna Earp might not fit the bill of prestige television, but it’s incredibly fun to watch. Its owes a clear (and heavily lampshaded) debt to the iconic series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but plays on that to the show’s advantage.
Revisiting Mass Effect 2, I better appreciate what the game was trying to do, especially with its sharp focus on presenting and developing interesting characters.

Science fiction often tackles existential threats that make our political squabbles look petty. So why can’t science fiction fans in positions of power tackle the real existential threat faced by humanity?
