It's a great time to be a fan of science fiction, fantasy, and all those other nerdy genres that used be considered unappealing to the mass market. The only problem is most of them are being produced by American TV networks, and there's no telling if and when they'll be available elsewhere. Netflix and Amazon pick up a lot, but there's only so much they're willing to pick up. The good news is that Nightflyers, the adaptation of George RR Martin's 1980 novella, is one of them.
Netflix has announced that it will be distributing the series internationally, which includes the UK, and that the first series will be available to view in its entirety on 1st February. That's 10 episodes for those trying to plan out their binge-watching schedule.
Reviews haven't been too kind to the sci-fi/horror series, but apparently American audiences responded quite well. So you can probably expect at least one more series of this to arrive sometime in the near future. In the meantime it gives you something to watch that isn't How I Met Your Mother. [Digital Spy]
