on

While Star Wars and The Avengers dominated the box office, a lot of television networks are looking to replicate big-screen success on the home theater market. Sci-fi used to be considered nerdy. Now, it’s one of the most popular and celebrated genres around. Most consumers watch their TV via streaming, true to the technology-focused stories they love. Here are some of the top sci-fi shows put out by streaming platforms.

Stranger Things

One of the biggest shows in the world right now is Netflix’s Stranger Things. The show is equal parts terror, nostalgia, humor, and awesome 80s synth music. However, the show’s greatest strength is its young cast filled with television’s brightest future stars. Speaking of stars, the next show is surprisingly full of them.

Black Mirror

Black Mirror is a dystopian sci-fi anthology series on Netflix that brings The Twilight Zone into a modern context. In the show, society’s obsession with technology distorts human nature in disturbing ways. Each episode is beautifully shot and incredibly acted. Its roster of actors includes big names like Bryce Dallas Howard, Jon Hamm, and Oscar nominee Daniel Kaluuya. While Black Mirror moves toward the future, the next show jumps into the past.

11.22.63

11.22.63 is a Hulu miniseries starring James Franco. In the show, a depressed teacher travels back in time to try and prevent JFK’s assassination. However, he grows too attached to his new life in the past, and the sacrifices he must make in order to fulfill his mission become more and more difficult with each episode. The one-season miniseries is based on a Stephen King novel, and the next show similarly takes inspiration from classic sci fi.

Electric Dreams

Amazon’s Electric Dreams is an anthology series with an all-star cast based on the novels of beloved sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick. The show features telepathic humans, interstellar travel, synthetic humanoids, and more. It explores the farthest reaches of the genre. Electric Dreams is sure to please fans of classic sci-fi. For those who prefer something in a more contemporary context, they might enjoy the next show instead.

Future Man

Josh Hutcherson stars in Hulu’s Future Man as a janitor who finds himself recruited by characters from his favorite video game. Together, they must travel through time and save the world. With Seth Rogen on staff as an executive producer, the genre-bending show can appeal to fans of bro comedy just as much as sci-fi lovers.
