Enter: The Orville, just to screw up a perfectly good theory.

You know what the difference is between older shows (Stargate SG-1, Farscape, Firefly) and these newer ones (The Expanse, Lost in Space, Star Trek Discovery)?

Those older shows were all lighhearted, fun adventure stories.

These new shows are just so gorram serious all the time.

I love , but it seems like all the new scifi tv shows are just the same boring bullshit now:

leave earth (because it sucks) to go to some [new place] and inevitably some [generic scary-horror-thing] happens en-route ...

where are the good original shows, like and ?
