A show that is set in the future, where humanity has taken over the solar system, this series is actually pretty mindblowing.

3. Westworld

Alright, this show is literally one of the best shows ever! It’s actually something we watch and rewatch a lot. Unlike other shows that have touched on the topic of artificial intelligence, this show manages to incorporate it almost seamlessly. The story revolves around an amusement park populated by androids and how things start changing as they start developing a consciousness. Not only is the story amazing but the cast and visuals are also out of the world.

4. Sense 8

Ahh! Our heart breaks every time we think about Sense 8. Almost everyone on who uses Netflix was heartbroken when they decided to cancel this epic series.

It is the perfect balance of comedy, romance, horror and suspense and even though it’s just 2 seasons, you really have to watch it!

Altered Carbon is based on a supremely fascinating foundation that traces the human existence 300 years into the future. This is a time when human bodies are interchangeable and death is no longer permanent. Taking major inspiration from the Noir fiction, it makes for quite an impressive watch.
