Night Sky is not the most reminiscent title, and the series does not reach the difficult science fiction peaks that some people are looking for. While the series has a slow-burning mystery about an alien planet, its greatest strength is the moving, sometimes surprisingly funny drama between the elderly couple. Leaving aside the dangerous newcomers, Franklin and Irene York (the great JK Simmons and Sissy Spacek), who face health problems, are kind enough to find the meaning of the portal to the mysterious, desolate planet.

People may not be completely original, but they read the assembled parts. A British family buys an artificial intelligence robot called “Sint” to help them with their busy lives. This basic approach to sensitive, probably dangerous robots is one of the strengths of humans. In the sweet center: an innocent connection between the family’s youngest daughter and Anita, the elegant and efficient synthesizer of Gemma Chan. A mystery draws the family to the origins of robots that explore necessary philosophical topics such as humanity, pain, memories and reality.
Electric Dreams (2017-2018)
Electric Dreams lives up to its name, each episode of the anthology series is a living, polished product, the ideas of its source material: the works of Philip K. Dick.

The Man in the High Tower (2015-2019)

Dick, follows characters from the 1960s living in a parallel universe controlled by Nazi Germany and the Japanese Empire. However, it is impossible to make a world news film, in which Germany and Japan lost the war and caused some to revolt. To really bring home the dystopian credentials, The Man in the High Castle is run by producer Ridley Scott. This is an attractive television with a fully realized and focused plot.

Tales from the Loop (2020—)

Meticulous, symmetrical frames give a kind of artistic feeling. The interconnected urban population is equally nuanced, and their stories explore loneliness, aging, and the impact of technology.
