People may not be completely original, but 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 strongest strengths of humans. In the sweet center: an innocent connection between the family’s youngest daughter and Gemma Chan’s elegant and efficient synthesizer Anita. 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. As with most anthologies, some episodes are better than others, but if you’re looking to tell a story with structures like Black Mirror, let that dream pass you by.
The Man in the High Tower (2015-2019)
The Man in the High Tower imagines an alternative history in which the Arrow States (Rome-Berlin-Tokyo) won World War II. The series, based on a novel by Philip K. Dick, follows characters from the 1960s living in a parallel universe controlled by Nazi Germany and the Japanese Empire. However, newsreels about a world where Germany and Japan lost the war and led some to revolt are impossible. The Man in the High Castle is run by producer Ridley Scott to really bring his dystopian credentials home. This is an attractive television with a fully realized and focused plot.

Tales from the Loop (2020—)
It’s not just another show about a small town where weird things happen, but there are layers under the beautiful surface of “Tales from the Loop.” It is amazing to watch a series based on the book of storytelling by Swedish artist Simon Stålenhaq. 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.
In many ways, Orphan Black is Tatiana Maslany’s show. Before Disney Plus became a popular name thanks to the upcoming She-Hulk, watch it play at least 14 characters in a series, including a hallucinatory scorpion. Just let it sink for a second. Orphan Black turns clever science-fiction concepts into a fast-paced thriller with added mystery and comedy. A must-watch sci-fi series that explores the nature-education debate.
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 there is a slow-burning mystery surrounding the alien planet in the series, its greatest strength is the moving, sometimes surprisingly funny drama between the elderly couple. Aside from the dangerous newcomers, Franklin and Irene York (the great JK Simmons and Sissy Spacek), who are facing health problems, are doing their best to find the meaning of the portal to a mysterious, desolate planet.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (2022—)
The Star Trek series is still going on. Star Trek: A decade before the Original Series, Strange New Worlds follows Captain Peak (Anson Mount) and the crew of the starship USS Enterprise as they bravely set out on a journey that no one else has. With episodic stories, stories and designs from previous series, Strange New Worlds brings a modern look to the much-loved area.
Look no further than Outer Range for science fiction that asks you to run your wild theory generator. The sci-fi West is set up on the Abbott family ranch, where Patriarch Royal (Josh Brolin) hides a big secret. When he comes to a strange city (Imogen Poots), he is forced to face not only the metaphorical sense, but also the past, present and future. Strange in unexpected ways, the Outer Range is a continuous science fiction journey.
This sci-fi horror takes place in a small town where mysterious and terrifying events take place. When a family is lost, they fall into a nightmare involving deadly creatures and equally deadly city dwellers. With enough intrigue and Harold Perrineau’s powerful protagonist in Sheriff Stevens to keep you connected, it’s an attractive place to spend time.

The Man Who Fell to the Earth (2022—)
Based on the novel by Walter Tevis, the series has an amazing cast: Chiwetel Ejiofor plays an alien who landed in search of help from a genius scientist, and Bill Nighy plays Thomas Jerome Newton, an alien who landed on Earth in a 1976 film. adaptation. The role was originally played by David Bowie, and each episode in the sequel is named after one of Bowie’s songs. The best-watched, more solid, entertaining series without comparing the previous material. Although you are not a fan of split schedules, be careful.
Amazon rescued The Expanse from the abolished TV kingdom and extended the series to six seasons. Thank God he did it, because The Expanse is a clever science fiction with real characters, high production values and a detective noir skin. In a future when humanity has colonized the solar system, an assassination threatens to start a cold war between the greatest powers. A group of anti-heroes find themselves in the center. We look forward to more space western themes in the next excellent seasons.

Comparisons of the Black Mirror with the British series about the failure of technology are inevitable. Founded in futuristic London, The Feed focuses on an implant that allows people to broadcast their lives live without having to press a button on their phone. No, absolutely nothing goes wrong. Influential cast includes David Thewlis and Michelle Fairley. While not as polished and deeply cutting as Black Mirror, The Feed is still worth a look.
The “Download” project combines the Black Mirror and the Good Place to bring clarity to the virtual afterlife. In the near future, humans may be loaded into a digital paradise where they can still communicate with living things. Although computer programmer Nathan died, he could not escape from his girlfriend. Meanwhile, he helped solve things that could have been his own murder. Sometimes witty comedy based on an always interesting digital space.
