Make My Day
Posted By:

This morning we discovered a new sci-fi anime series called Make My Day coming to Netflix next month which had slipped beneath our radar. How did we miss it?

It seems like Netflix revealed it during their Geeked Week event in 2021 - before our blog's time - and then quietly published the trailer to the Netflix site, skipping YouTube and social media.

Hello Tomorrow!
Posted By:

We see a trailer for a new Apple TV+ series with a man dressed in 50s era clothes standing in a 50s era room. Does not immediately strike us as sci-fi but its title Hello Tomorrow! tickles our sci-fi gland.

Worth a quick look. Doesn't take long for us to see a man jetpacking off into the sky and a dog being walked by a hovering robot. Bingo! Good work sci-fi gland.

How much sci-fi is there? You'd think that would be an easy question to answer, but no.

Posted By:

Disney have dropped the season 3 trailer for The Mandalorian.

One scene made us chuckle, as a character we vaguely recognise from an earlier season bids, "May the Force be with you."

Occasionally in our eternal search for new sci-fi trailers we come across soon to release titles which had previously largely escaped our notice.
