10 Amazing Sci-Fi TV Shows You Need To Stop Sleeping On

10. Locke & Key

Netflix

One of this year's newest arrivals, Locke & Key has garnered itself something of a following since its February debut but it hasn't really broken out in the way that, say, Stranger Things did. That's certainly not a mark on its success or anything like that because, in all honesty, it hasn't quite matched the heights of the sci-fi juggernaut, but that doesn't mean it isn't capable of getting there - because it certainly is.

Set in the small fictional town of Matheson, it follows new arrivals Tyler, Kinsey and Bode Locke and their mother Nina as they attempt to start over in the childhood home of their deceased father and husband Rendell. However, it isn't long before Keyhouse begins repeating history with the next generation of Lockes, making the impossible happen - including perhaps even bringing this torn apart family back together.

There are a number of pacing and tonal issues in the early-going, but the cast carry it through them - and once Locke & Key is on the money, it's bloody fantastic. And in 10 concise and easily-bingeable episodes, it perfectly sets up a narrative that looks to be even more intriguing than the first.

Find out why more people should be talking about Locke & Key by bingeing the first season before the second arrives sometime next year.
