Just caught up with Killjoys.

Very nice show, starts good with a bit of cheese and builds up to pretty damn good quite quickly. Great world-building especially, with a very evocative tone of noir and pulp built with the recurrent supportive cast. Definitely makes you want to see more of them and of the back-story.

The main cast is good - three characters only, the main one a woman of color with a mysterious past of being trained as an assassin who is extremely badass, and two brother, one a former soldier also with a past, and the second the tech guy / heart of the group. I'm not quite in love, except for the female character being awesome, but they're fun enough.

Plotting's decent, and fairly efficient in term of the story moving fast.

Definitely scratches a farscape / firefly / cowboy bebop / shadowrun IN SPACE itch that I'd been missing for a while!!

Oh, that sounds promising! (which probably means I'll get around to watching it in 2035 or so :P)

J'ai bien aimé, puis beaucoup aimé à partir de l'épisode 7, qui m'a donné beaucoup de feels.

That sounds like an interesting show. I did watch the trailer for it a while back and wondered whether it was any good, I haven't really heard many comments about it.
We could definitely do with some good new space opera, so I'll try to watch this sometime. Have you watched the pilot of The Expanse? I thought it was a very promising start.
