4. Firefly: Space outlaws living on the fringe of an oppressively governed universe wreck stuff, steal cargo, and sometimes save the day. You could say they're big damn heroes.

5. Peaky Blinders: Cillian Murphy plays the alternately terrifying and alluring mob boss Tommy Shelby, whose family-first street gang runs the streets of Birmingham.

6. Black Mirror: Often called a Twilight Zone for the modern era, each episode of Black Mirror is a story that deals –some in the abstract– with the effect of technology on society.
