It's the best sci-fi series of the year, but hardly anyone watches it

By Aubéry Mallet Journalist Series, cinema, TV Aubéry Mallet is a journalist specializing in series. A fan of the small screen, she has seen everything (or almost) from Game of Thrones to Pretty Little Liars, from The Bridgerton Chronicle to Stranger Things via Gossip Girl or Friends. While the platforms flood us with news every week, some series go completely unnoticed. And yet, they are worth a look. This is the case for the best science fiction series of the year, available on Prime Video. The problem ? No one (or almost) looks at her. Fortunately, it's never too late to get started!

The year 2022 is coming to an end soon, and we obviously already have our favorites for the series. If some have been talked about a lot like House of the Dragon or The Rings of Power, others remain (unfortunately) more confidential. This is the case for example of Warrior Nun which had no advertising, but which is one of the best rated series on Netflix or even Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, the anime series that got a perfect score from critics. But the good series are obviously not only on Netflix!

The other platforms are also full of nuggets unknown to the general public. Like The Bear on Disney+ which immerses us in a restaurant, The White Lotus whose season 2 is currently broadcast on OCS or Station Elevenbroadcast on SyFy which is one of the best series of 2021. Prime Video also has several programs not to be missed! After the success of a French film and the unexpected success of the series Miskina, la poche, here is THE series not to be missed on the Amazon platform.

The best series for science fiction fans is on Prime Video

This series is Peripherals: The Worlds of Flynne (also called The Device). Cast right after Rings of Power ends, this science-fiction series adapted from a series of novels by William Gibson, aka one of the masters of science-fiction, does not make much noise online, despite a lot of publicity.

The pitch? Siblings Flynn (Chloë Grace Moretz) and Burton (Jack Reynor) live in a small town in the United States in 2032. Technology has developed, and as debt mounts, Burton is offered a crazy opportunity: test a simulation more real than life for a very good salary. Her sister sticks to it, without even thinking that she will really be transported to 2099, to a very different world. Not to mention the fact that she will be the target of killers who are determined to get rid of her…

In addition to a solid cast where we also find Gary Carr, T'Nia Miller or a Katie Shapeshifting Leung, Peripherals: The Worlds of Flynne can count on many talents behind the cameras. It is produced by Westworld visionaries Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan. Without forgetting Vincenzo Natali who produces and directs several episodes. The concentrated power of the big names in front and behind the camera results in a result full of visual power, gripping drama, clever ideas and complex characters.

Season 1 is available in full

If you haven't cracked it yet (or just haven't heard of it), season 1 of Peripherals: The Worlds of Flynne is now available in full on Prime Video. You would be really wrong to do without it! For the moment, it is not known if the series will have a season 2, but since the adventures of Flynn last over several novels, there is something to be hoped for!
