7 sensational sci-fi series to stream this weekend!


Johannesburg - How can we be alone in this universe when there are at least 200 billion galaxies out there with trillions upon trillions of stars and planets? Surely there must be some sort of intelligible life out there, or at least bacteria. 

If you find yourself thinking about this age old question, or if you’re all about close encounters of the third kind, these are the 7 series you should be binge-watching.

But where do you draw the line between life and artificial intelligence? Prepare to have your mind blown in this incredible and unnerving show about man versus the machines we build.
