    It's not NEW ... but Stargate: SG-1, Stargate: Atlantis, Stargate Universe. All of which can be watched on PlutoTV for free, as they have their own channel.

    ... If it ain't broke, hit it harder.

    +1 for the Stargate. We just finished going through Universe not long ago and are going through Atlantis again now.

    We're also going through Fringe again. I forgot how much I like the character Walter Bishop (played by John Noble) playing the eccentric scientist.

    Not exactly scifi, but if you're into super heroes, check out X-Men 1997 on Disney+. There are already three episodes out and another will be released today.

    My wife and I enjoyed Season 1 of Silo (on Apple TV) -- enough to read the
    book series together. It's downright grim at times, but offers enough to
    root for and provokes some thoughts...

    I hadn't heard of Silo, it looks interesting thanks for mentioning it. From search results it looks there's a season 2 to look forward to also - great news.

    wow, I've read all the books in the past and really liked it a lot.
    Might be cool to see how they filmed it.

    Anyway, books are books -- Your imagination shapes the look/feel of the silos.

    The Silo saga is really cool reading. Caught me so much -- I had it as audio books and listened to it while driving to work, before sleep, whenever there was a spare time.

    Would love to find some similar saga.
