More shows like Pilgrim, please

I was amazed by the poetry, science and imagination of Pilgrim. Really preferred this series over The Foxes. The Foxes was a bit too philosophical, heady for me. Pilgrim was stunning, well-written, beautiful. I really hope it gets made into a stage play. It’s been a month since I finished, and I’m still being haunted by Pilgrim.
