If you like a combination of science fiction, horror, the supernatural and period dramas, then Stranger Things is the show for you.

The show is based in the early 1980s in Hawkins, Indiana. It looks at the scientific research done by a local laboratory for the United States Department of Energy.

The lab also secretly does scientific research and experiments around the supernatural and paranormal, including conducting experiments on human subjects.

The experiments then lead to the creation of an alternate dimension called “the Upside Down”, which then starts to create a chaotic environment for the Hawkins’ residents.

The show has twists and turns that will leave you on edge the entire time. There are currently two seasons, with the third one underway.

Orphan Black

Keeping on the theme of science fiction and experiments on human bodies is Canadian T.V. show, Orphan Black.

The show kicks off with Sarah, who witnesses the suicide of another woman, Beth, who looks exactly like her.

Sarah then takes up Beth’s identity and occupation as a police detective. In the process of this, Sarah discovers that she is actually a clone and that there are dozens of clones spread out across America and Europe.

The clones are part of an illegal experiment on human beings.

The show explores the reasons on their creation, where they came from and who made them. It also looks at the nature versus nurture argument throughout the show. 

The clones are all essayed by award-winning Canadian actress Tatiana Maslany, who does such a great job at this, you forget she is playing nearly everyone!

The show is complete with five seasons under its belt.
