Back when there was a Blockbuster in every strip mall, the idea of Netflix seemed like something out of a sci-fi movie. A cache of near-endless movies and shows that can be instantly beamed to the TV? Come on.
But here we are. Welcome to the future: You have arrived. It’s 2020, and Netflix is full of TV shows that imagine what might be next, after this moment. Next up is sci-fi/space-fantasy drama Away coming to Netflix September 4, about an astronaut (Hilary Swank) who leads a journey to Mars to find a missing space crew.
Is the “next” any better than the “now”? Is another world any better than our own? These sci-fi shows are getting at big questions like that using progressions like robots and time travel — and each show has a different answer. 
Escape into another world with these shows.
