SyFy seems to be on a mission to shed some of it’s, well, less than stellar reputation with regards to quality SF on its network. They’ve recently announced series based on S.A. Corey’s Expanse novels, John Scalzi’s The Ghost Brigades and a “re-imagining” of Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys. Below is the trailer for SyFy’s version.
You can see the beats based on the movie, but it’s clear this show is also heading out on its own, which is a good thing. Unfortunately, it looks like Syfy TV show based on the, shall we say, rather lower budget look of the trailer. Still, I applaud SyFy for trying to put more honest to goodness SF back on TV. I will definitely watch the first few episodes, hoping it will be at less decent enough to watch. Slated to drop in January 2015.
