Top 5 Titles on Netflix Every Sci-Fi Fan Will Love

There’s nothing like coming home after a tough day at work, kicking back, and relaxing. Whether it’s action, drama, or sci-fi, Netflix never ceases to deliver in this regard. But what to do if you feel like tuning in to a new show, but aren’t sure what’s worth watching? The answer is — keep on reading. This article is about to cover the best TV series that will glue you to the screen. You will also find an enjoyable movie that you can watch (or rewatch). Spoiler alert: superheroes involved!

1. Lost in Space

Now that’s a classic space exploration adventure designed for modern audiences. The Earth is facing a crisis, and the Robinson family takes off into space to mark a new chapter in human history. A mere glimpse at the title reveals what happens next. You’ve guessed it – they get lost. Worse yet, an unfortunate series of events get them stranded on an alien planet. Of course, this means there will be robots and extraterrestrial lifeforms involved. Despite it all, the series makes for a somewhat family-friendly watch.

2. Love, Death & Robots

Speaking of robots, here is one animated series for all you tech lovers out there. Coming from no one other than Deadpool’s director himself, Tim Miller, it is a perfect match for those who complain to be short on time. With episodes being anywhere between 5 and 15 minutes in length, there can hardly be an excuse not to watch at least a couple of them. To keep things fresh, every episode uses a different style of animation. To give you a taste of what you can expect, imagine Hitler dying in various ways in a myriad of alternate realities. That’s Love, Death & Robots for you.

3. The Magicians

In case you want a break from science fiction, you should watch The Magicians. The series spices things up with dark fantasy and magic and sets the stage for modern-day dynamics. Think of it like Harry Potter for adults. The heroes go through a wizardry school of their own, visit many intriguing places, even if it takes a bit of time travel to get there. The seasons have a touch of darkness to them, but season 4 appears to be particularly dark. So if you haven’t been watching up to this point, now is the time to catch up.

4. The Witcher

Thanks to the likes of DNA-altering mutagens and powerful decoctions, a fantasy set in the medieval ages gets much more enjoyable. These sci-fi elements help the hero to unlock powerful combative and superhuman abilities to prevail against his foes. Cocky and confident, Geralt of Rivia journeys across the land hunting monsters for cash and, if need be, humans as well. It is all while making complex moral decisions in a world that is anything but black and white. Carrying two swords on his back, one for monsters and the other one for humans. Can it be argued that both are, in fact, for monsters?

5. Hancock

Not that anyone would like to advocate for alcoholism, but something is charming about a superhero who also happens to be marked by this vice. Was there ever a movie dealing with the question of how superheroes are portrayed in the public eye? Speaking of which, how did his superpowers come to be? It appears as if an unknown source might be involved, but it’s best to tune in, watch the whole thing, and be the judge yourself. Either way, if you’re a fan of Jason Bateman or Charlize Theron, they make for a cute couple that takes the spotlight at times. Together, they help the hero on the difficult path to sobering up.

“Not Available in Your Region”?

All these titles are on Netflix. But it doesn’t mean all these series may be available where you live. In case you find yourself unable to access your favorite Netflix series, geo-restrictions are the likely cause of it. Luckily, the solution is rather simple. By using VPN software from reputable providers like NordVPN, it’s easy to change your IP at the click of a button. It’s enough to bypass such limitations and access more online content. Plus, it protects your privacy too.

Time to Choose One and Watch

No matter what you end up watching, these series will not leave you hanging. Though you can brace yourself for a cliffhanger every once in a while. That’s part of the fun.

I have only seen Love, Death and Robots- a great series of shorts.

Don't ask me about Lost in Space. I never saw the OG series, but I like the film! But the new Lost in Space is an incredibly beautiful, but incredibly dumb show. I hate all Smith subplot. Even Disney now doesn’t do such caricatured, annoying, and just silly villains. Actually, dr. Smith ruin this show. Another one - again a cliched family with some kind of divorce. Seriously? Сan we have a socially healthy family? Sometimes...
