I was grieving over the news that my favorite science fiction show Defiance wasn’t returning for a fourth season, but there is a show that I’m really interested in watching. “The Expanse” is a bold space opera that takes place 200 years in the future when most of our solar system is colonized.

The Walking Dead S05 E02: Strangers


Played like the second half of a Super Bowl game, last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead” showed how Team Cattle royally kicked Team Butcher’s butt, and we can thank Carol aka Wonder Woman for that victory.
