Every weekend we immerse ourselves in the catalog of the different streaming platforms to make several recommendations. We almost always focus on movies, but today it’s time to propose 4 great science fiction series to watch on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, HBO Max and Disney+.
I remind you that it’s not the first time that we recommend series to watch in streaming, because we have already reviewed 4 short and addictive series available on Netflix and another 4 great animated science fiction and fantasy series that you can find on platforms. And if you want something more varied, be sure to visit our list of the 11 best Netflix series of this 2022.
In case you don’t feel like starting a series these days, you can also take a look at this list of 4 very good futuristic science fiction movies, the one with powerful erotic cinema in streaming, the one we made of movies to break out laughing on platforms or the one of the 13 best Netflix movies of so far this year. Without further ado, let’s go with today’s picks.
Created by: Daniel Knauf. Distribution: Nick Stahl, Clancy Brown, Amy Madigan, Michael J. Anderson, Tim DeKay, Clea Duvall, Patrick Bauchau, Debra Christofferson, Diane Salinger, Adrienne Barbeau, Toby Huss, Cynthia Ettinger, Carla Gallo
One of the HBO cancellations that I remember with more pain, because I already warned you that the story was not closed after the premiere of just two seasons. Unfortunately, it lost track and was too expensive, something that shows in the incredible care in all the technical sections. A mix of historical fiction, science fiction and dark fantasy, it is a series that requires some patience as it calmly unfolds the story of Ben, a young man with healing powers who joins a fair, and Father Justin, a seemingly gentle shepherd. which then does not end up being so. Fascinating despite being unfinished and with a cast full of faces that will sound familiar to a greater or lesser extent.
‘The Collapse’ (‘L’effondrement’)
Created by: Les Parasites. Distribution: Bellamine Abdelmalek, Lubna Azabal, Lola Burbail, Thibault de Montalembert, Audrey Fleurot, Samir Guesmi, Claire Guillon, Caroline Piette, Philippe Rebbot, Pierre Rousselet, Bastien Ughetto
A great French miniseries around the end of the world with the particularity that each of its eight episodes is shot in a sequence shot, which is key to making it a more immersive experience. In addition, each little story is wonderfully complemented by the rest to offer a much broader portrait of the extreme situation in which its protagonists find themselves. In addition, no chapter takes 30 minutes, so in the end, watching it in its entirety hardly requires a commitment similar to that of a long film. In fact, it will take you longer to see the wonderful ‘The Batman’ than ‘The Collapse’.

‘I am alive’
Created by: Daniel Ecija. Distribution: Javier Gutiérrez, Anna Castillo, Alejo Sauras, Roberto Álamo, Aitana Sánchez-Gijón, Cristina Plazas, Alfonso Bassave, Fele Martínez, Julia Gutiérrez Caba, Jesús Castejón, Lucía Caraballo, Zorion Eguileor, Mon Ceballos
I can already imagine the complaints of some for including a Spanish series in general and the one that concerns us in particular, but I will not get tired of defending a title that successfully mixes science fiction with traditional costumbrismo, also balancing drama with comedy. For this, both its cast and the definition of the characters are key, since in the end the great hook is there, in the affection that you take for its protagonists so that their particular adventures fly by. Of course, do not expect a great visual display.

‘Sweet Tooth: The Deer Boy’

Distribution: Nonso Anozie, Christian Convery, Stefania Owen, Aliza Vellani, James Brolin, Naledi Murray, Adeel Akhtar, Nixon Bingley, Ava Diakhaby, Seth Flynn, Will Forte, River Rain Jarvis, Dania Ramirez, Neil Sandilands, Christopher Sommers, Christian Tessier
A post-apocalyptic fairy tale. This adaptation of the comic Jeff Lemire It could have gone very badly for mixing two worlds that do not seem to marry much with each other, but at the moment of truth we find a tender and endearing series that knows how to manage so that it does not mean neglecting the need to create a sense of danger for many moments without feeling out of place. One of those titles that you see with a smile on your face but also knowing that they are telling you a good story.
