5: Black Mirror
Why do we watch bad things happen to good people? It’s a classic question that has plagued philosophers for centuries. One likely answer: because it’s entertaining as hell. And you don’t get much more entertaining than Black Mirror. The series, which explores how technology influences human life and relationships, just dropped its fourth season onto Netflix. But even if you’ve watched every episode of Black Mirror before, chances are there’s something new for you to binge watch over the next couple days—if there’s not already a whole new season waiting for you by then. Whatever your mood is right now (me? I’m feeling existential dread) one thing remains true: science fiction makes life more interesting and exciting than ever.

If you’re looking for an action-packed sci-fi experience with a cool visual style, it’s definitely worth checking out.
