Hold your breath for the most talked about science fiction series of the year.

The subjects of science fiction series have always been very interesting. Science fiction, which draws us in sometimes with its visual effects, sometimes with its actors, but most of the time with the undefined world of imagination it offers, is an indispensable part of the TV series ecosystem. We know that there is science fiction for everyone. That’s why we’ve listed a few science fiction series that have high IMDB scores, that you may have overlooked, or that you may have heard of but never had the opportunity to watch. If your lists are ready, let’s get started.

3 Body Problem

The American science fiction series 3 Body Problem, adapted from Liu Cixin’s Hugo Award-winning novel The 3-Body Problem, achieved great popularity as soon as it was released. The series begins with a secret military project set against the backdrop of China’s Cultural Revolution. China, which sent signals into space to communicate with extraterrestrial beings in the late 60s, realizes that it can communicate with an alien civilization on the verge of destruction. Meanwhile, different groups that want to fight against alien occupation and are alien sympathizers are forming on Earth.

The series is watchable thanks to adventures of Oxford Five, which is the main heroes of the series. It can be say that the best scenes in the series are the ship disassembled with nanotechnology, humans are as thin as a bone due to solar explosion, and reviving. It seems like a very seductive experience to reach different world through video games.

IMDB: 7.7

Upload

Upload, which brings a completely different perspective to the concept of life after death, has become one of the most popular series on Amazon Prime. We recommend you watch especially the first season of Upload, which brings together both science fiction and humor. Although the second season of the series was not liked by its followers, the scenes that push the limits of imagination will still please those who are looking for good science fiction. In Upload, which is an extraordinary production with its plot, characters and actors, the details of what life after death might be like are wonderfully handled.

In addition to subtleties such as the fact that phones will not be used in the near future and their reflection on the hand, the future of technology in 2033, the treatment of a love story between an ordinary person and a dead person adds an interesting atmosphere to the series. Upload, which many viewers talk about its similarity to another TV series The Good Place, does not have a great reputation in our country. But don’t let it go unnoticed.

Loki

If you like science fiction themes such as time travel and parallel universes, you will love the adventures of Loki, the god of evil. Of course, Tom Hiddleston, who is now identified with the character of Loki, also has a big share in this. The series follows Loki, who escaped from the timeline in “Avengers: Endgame.” At the end of the movie, Loki goes on a journey between space and time by using the Tesseract, which is the key to his escape. Finding himself in the middle of various dangers, Loki is captured by TVA (Time Variance Authority). TVA is very knowledgeable about Loki and they are trying to deal with him somehow. Loki, whom we have seen as the oppressed brother in the “Thor” stories so far, has probably become one of the most popular evil characters because he feels more like a naughty child.

Multiverses, timelines, portals, variants, time guards are the topics we will see in “Loki”. Owen Wilson’s contribution is also great. In short, it is an ideal production for both those who love Marvel comics and those who enjoy watching science fiction and fantasy worlds.

Travelers

One of the hidden heroes of the Netflix world is Travelers. The series, which started airing in 2016 and ended in 2018, tells the story of a group of travelers from the future who came to the 21st century. These travelers, who do not have a name of their own, come to today’s world and try to change some things in their past due to the danger of humanity’s extinction in the future. Travelers, where each character has a different story, is a science fiction movie that you can’t stop watching once you start watching it.

The only flaw of the series is that it does not see much of the lives of the passengers from the future, that is, the progress of advanced technology. We always watch the events today. Of course, we still know the little details. For example, passengers can communicate with each other without the need to use a phone with a chip they place under their ear, and they can achieve rapid recovery using advanced medical technology. But people want to see more.

Parallels

Parallels tells the story of four friends named Bilal, Romane, Samuel and Victor, who are dispersed into different timelines and whose lives are turned upside down due to a mysterious event. We can say that the French production Parallels is a bit like the famous Stranger Things. The series, which will especially appeal to those who enjoy youth TV series, also reveals how important the bond of friendship is. Multiverses, lives changed by a particle accelerator, and a mother who does not give up on her child while trying to return everything to the way it was before are the main topics of Parallels.

You will lose track of time while watching Parallels, which is in the mini-series category as it consists of 6 episodes. Viewers of the series say that the performances of the young actors are very successful, and they recommend that you watch the series with subtitles in the original French version, if possible.

IMDB: 7.0

Altered Carbon

Altered Carbon, published between 2018-2020, was adapted from Richard K. Morgan’s cyberpunk novel. The series, which tells the story of a murder that a prisoner who comes back to life in a future he does not want to live in after 250 years on ice, must solve in order to have the life he wants, offers the audience an interesting science fiction universe about the transfer of human consciousness from body to body. We can say that another story of being able to continue life after death is told. Since it talks about 300 years from now, we can watch many aspects of developing technology in the series.

The biggest criticism about Altered Carbon, which has been commented by its viewers that it follows in the footsteps of Blade Runner, is the lack of continuity of the series. Its philosophical approaches, such as the change in approaches to many concepts in life with the discovery of immortality, make the series watchable. We can say that the action scenes are also a plus for those who love detective stories.

Solos

Solos, which has an undeserved average rating of 6.0 on IMDB, is one of the best science fiction alternatives to Amazon Prime. Solos is a seven-episode anthology in which a famous actor drags the series with a solo performance in each episode. The best parts of Solos, which hosts actors such as Anna Hathaway, Helen Mirren, Uzo Aduba, Morgan Freeman and tells a different story in each episode, are the memory champion and Anne Hathaway, who plays scientist Leah, who tries to find her own reflections in the past and future. Episodes with Morgan Freeman playing Stuart. You can follow Solos, a science fiction movie that you can watch like a crunchy snack, on Amazon Prime.

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

Even though we tried to stay away from well-known ones, we couldn’t help but add Bandersnatch, which many of us talked about when it was released in 2018, to this list. Because a lot of time has passed, and you can still watch this interactive series a few more times. The series, which progresses differently with each choice you make and has multiple endings, has a special place in the Black Mirror universe with its concepts such as past and future and its structure that involves the audience. We would love to see more interactive series like this, so that we can travel to the past and watch our future, which we change with the decisions we make, in one fell swoop.
