These sensates experience each other's lives both emotionally and mentally. Try navigating that while being hunted down like animals for disrupting the new world order. Rough life!
Glitch - Two Seasons
Glitch is another series in its second season getting great reviews. It's about a doctor and a police officer who discovered that seven of the residents of their town have returned from the dead in perfect health. The resurrected have no idea who they are, and somehow they're all connected. It sounds a lot like many other shows we've seen (Resurrection, The Return), but it's hard to argue with popularity!
Black Mirror - Four Seasons Renewed
Black Mirror was a sensation in the UK before Netflix grabbed it, but they've been careful to keep a fairly "foreign" feel to the proceedings. Fans are loving it. One reason it's probably so popular is that the show explores the dark consequences of advanced technology, which is very relevant in today's world. Add to that consistently great casts, stories, and directors for each installment, and you've got an award-winning show that's a must-see for sci-fi lovers.
Bright - Movie
Bright is an original Netflix movie starring Will Smith. Humans are living on Earth with orcs, elves, centaurs, dwarves, and a host of other races. Racism still exists now more than ever, when the human (Will Smith) is paired up with the first orcish police officer in the LAPD. It not only tickles your sci-fi bone, it addresses real world racial tensions.
What Happened to Monday - Movie
What Happened to Monday is set in the not-so-far-future when overpopulation has caused a one-child per woman law to be enacted AND strictly enforced. When septuplet sisters are born, they are named the days of the week and only go out on their corresponding day. Things are going smoothly until Monday goes missing, then all hell breaks loose. Definitely worth a look-see.
