- TOP 5 SCI-FI SERIES FOR THE WEEK
We have combed through the best ones and think you might like these ones in no particular order –
1] MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE
Brief Plot: The story tells an alternate reality where Hitler and Nazi won the 2nd war after defeating the Allied Forces. The Amazon TV Series explores a future of the world ruled by Nazi world power alongside the Japanese and the underground resistance [within and outside government] that put up a fight against powers that be.
2] THE EXPANSE
Brief Plot: The show is set in space mostly, and focuses on the interplanetary conflict that ensued after a cold war engulfed the three interstellar Powers – United Nations of Earth and Luna, the Martian Congressional Republic on Mars, and the Outer Planets Alliance (OPA). At the centre of the conspiracy is police detective Joe Miller who was given the task of finding a girl.
His investigation led him to James Holden, Naomi Nagata, Alex Kamal and Amos Burton who helped him solve his case and uncovered the dangerous biohazard deployed by the girl’s father that wiped off humans on a place called “Eros”.
Brief Plot: You probably may have heard of Zack Snyder’s Watchmen which has turned to a cult classic. The series ‘Watchmen’ is also a DC Comics show produced and aired by HBO in 2019. It explores a modern society influenced by Rorschach’s writing, including a world where Policemen wear mask [on official duties] to protect themselves from racist supremacists.
The show is intrinsically linked with Dr. Manhattan and a police officer.
4] THE MANDALORIAN
Brief Plot: Pedro Pascal journey’s through the Star Wars popular franchise now showing on TV as the Mandalorian.The series focuses on his lone wolf journeys across the galaxy with a child Yoda. It is an action packed fun-filled sci-fi series that has created so many memes on the internet already since its debut in 2019 on Disney+.
As expected, it packs all the usual droids, more space creatures [including a cow eating monster] and storm-troopers.
Brief Plot: Loki is the latest TV show in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There is a caution here though, you will need to have immersed yourself in most [if not all] of the previously released movies and series in the MCU featuring Loki in order to get a full grasp of the show.
Since the first season just ended, guess I won’t be spoiling anything by telling you that the final episode revealed the next big bad in the MCU. We are talking about a character who allowed Thanos to get defeated because it suits his “Timeline” plans. Although it is not specifically mentioned, Kang the Conqueror is the next bad guy going forward after Sylvie [a Loki variant] killed a more lenient version of Kang in the Loki season finale.
