I'm 4 episodes into this one, and loving it.  Three of my favorite actors in the lead roles.

The crew of a Royal Naval expedition searching for the Arctic's treacherous Northwest Passage faces a challenge they had not anticipated.

Based on the novel by Dan Simmons.  (Ridley Scott is one of five executive producers).

Creator: David Kajganich
Stars: Jared Harris, Tobias Menzies, Ciarán Hinds
"Trying to fit in since 2017."

I second that.  For a show about a bunch of people stuck in the arctic, this show moves. Loving it.

I saw a trailer for this and immediately went out and bought the book. Read it in about two weeks, obsessed over the real history and maps and have been watching the show via appointment viewing every Monday.

What they have brought to life straight from the book and the great things they've added have been fantastic.

This is the most hype I've been for a show since The Knick
