8 Sci-Fi Shows Other Than 'Stranger Things' & 'Black Mirror' That Need To Be On Your Binge List

Everyone loves Stranger Things and Black Mirror, but you'd be doing your inner geek a great disservice by ignoring the oh-so-many more fantastic sci-fi shows out there. 

Which is why we've come up with a list of series that should make you as happy as a mad scientist who's cracked the secret of time travel:

1. 12 Monkeys

Move over Hollywood, TV's doing it better. That's the lesson you draw from '12 Monkeys'. Sure, the 1995 movie (directed by Terry Gilliam and starring Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt) was a fun watch, but this show really takes time travel adventure to the next level. 

via GIPHY

An incredibly detailed plotline, a lot of old-fashioned action, characters you grow fond of, and even dollops of zany humour (We bet Emily Hampshire's Jennifer Goines will become one of your fav characters in just a few episodes) make '12 Monkeys' one of our fave shows.

2. Altered Carbon

It's the 24th century and technology has evolved to the point we can now store human consciousness in a small disk, making us pretty much immortal. But that doesn't mean humans will stop being human - yup, people still get murdered. How do you deal with that? 

via GIPHY

Well, if you're rich beyond imagination, you wake up in your new body, and then you hire a former rebel to track down your killer on the gritty streets of future LA. Sounds a bit like 'Blade Runner'? The debt it owes to that seminal flick is obvious. But that doesn't make it any less deserving of praise - it's a great blend of cyberpunk futurism and old-school film noir.

3. The Expanse

You know a TV show's got something going for it when Jeff Bezos announces Prime Video will be picking it up. That's what happened when 'The Expanse' was cancelled. Fans screamed out in anguish, but Bezos swooped in to the rescue. And no, he wasn't playing the indulgent billionaire - if anyone knows what's a good deal, it's the chap who owns freakin' Amazon. 

via GIPHY

'The Expanse's' astonishingly accurate science will make physics nuts swoon, the space scenes are jaw-droppingly gorgeous, and the intrigue and tension can make an Oscar-winning drama look tame. Utterly brilliant storytelling and filmmaking, that's what 'The Expanse' is.

4. Travelers

In the future, the planet is dying, and humanity's not really having a great time. But our descendants have figured out the secret of time travel. No, they don't use their newfound tech to go make a killing on the stock market. Instead, they do the wise thing and send in teams of 'Travelers' back to our present. 

via GIPHY

Travelers who hide amongst us by only occupying the bodies of people when they're about to die - they're from the future, after all, so they know that stuff (duh). And what's their task? To subtly nudge humanity away from a path to self-destruction. But all's not what it seems - there are factions trying to stop this, and even fellow Travelers with an axe to grind.

5. Westworld

Science Fiction meets cowboys in this highly addictive HBO show. Set in the future, 'Westworld' is the tale of an amusement park where the rich can go live out their fantasies of being back in the Wild West. 

via GIPHY

But things take a darker turn when the androids that work there begin to show signs of sentience. It's smart, it's fun, and it's got enough emotional depth for even those who don't like most sci-fi shows. We can't recommend this enough!

6. Misfits

From 'ol Blighty comes this new-age tale of superheroes. A bunch of teenage delinquents, stuck doing community service for various anti-social deeds (teenagers, we tell ya!) find themselves granted mysterious and hard-to-control superpowers. 

via GIPHY

But these aren't one-dimensional superheroes of yore - they're just kids stuck in a strange situation and they need to save themselves before anything else.

7. The Man in the High Castle

Based on a book by the legendary Philip K Dick (Blade Runner, anyone?), 'The Man in the High Castle' is a riveting romp through an alternate world - one where the Axis powers won World War II. It's set in the sixties, but one without hippies, the Rolling Stones, or the Mustang. 

via GIPHY

Instead, the United States has been divvied up between the Germans and Japanese, and to say they rule with an iron fist would be an understatement. But there's hope: A band of rebels is fighting against the occupying forces as well as they can (and not faring too well), and there are signs reality may not be as fixed and predetermined as we all fear.

8. Firefly

Older readers amongst us will be intimately familiar with this rollicking space western. To the younger reader, we can only describe it as 'Star Wars' for the TV era. 

via GIPHY

Joss Whedon's 'Firefly' only lasted one season, and that was a decade-and-a-half ago, but it's just so much fun, you need to go watch it. And when the credits of the final episode start rolling, take a second before you start cursing the exec who cancelled 'Firefly', and thank your stars that Whedon also made a movie ('Serenity') that acts like a sequel (or second season).
