Here are the best Syfy shows currently on now. The SyFy network has been responsible for putting out some stunning SyFy programming over the years, keeping the genre alive and well. Quality science fiction uses fantastic scenarios - usually based on trends in actual science and technology - as analogies for modern dilemmas, debates, and current events. Among all the SyFy shows currently airing, which are your favorites? Which best encapsulate the true spirit of science fiction? 

There are several comic book shows on SyFy, including Wynonna Earp, Krypton, and Van Helsing and also shows based on books, like The Magicians or even Nightflyers - which is based on works by Geroge R.R. Martin. Many of the shows on SyFy feature people with extraordinary powers, though not always supernatural (or superheroic) ones. Deadly Class is about a high school for assasins, while Happy! is set in a fantastical type of real-world, but the protaganist is all too human.
