3 Body Problem Is My Most Anticipated Streaming Show of The Year (so far)

I love movies about reality-bending scientific mysteries. Just having a story where the stakes are so large, it engulfs who we are and what we do is amazing. Think Arthur C. Clarke’s “Childhood’s End”, “Contact”, or “The Signal”. Interestingly enough, I had never heard of “3 Body Problem” until I saw the Netflix trailer. After researching the story I was amazed how Liu Cixin‘s world-ending story had escaped me. I plan to watch the series and then read Cixin’s book trilogy. I’m sure more content will be spread across those pages than in the 8-episode streaming series.

A young woman’s fateful decision in 1960s China reverberates across space and time to a group of brilliant scientists in the present day. As the laws of nature unravel before their eyes five former colleagues reunite to confront the greatest threat in humanity’s history.
