My new favorite

WOWZA 🙌❤️

Fantastic

Fantastic writing, excellent voice acting. I’m not usually a sci-fi fan because I hate hate heavy-handed exposition. But the writing cleverly skirts that issue plus provides compelling personality and growth for each of the characters. I also love the short, tight episodes and that each season has a central arc/mystery, with politics, history, and a few characters that interconnect them.
