Driftglass and Blue Gal

Diving into Apple TV's new series "Dark Matter," based on Blake Crouch's bestselling novel. We'll explore how the show tackles concepts of both parallel realities, and the nature of identity across multiple timelines.

But the multiverse madness doesn't stop there! We'll expand our discussion to other sci-fi shows that have expertly played with alternate realities:

  • "Counterpart": How J.K. Simmons' dual roles illuminate questions of nature vs. nurture across parallel Earths
  • "Loki": Marvel's time-hopping adventure and its implications for free will and predestination
  • "The Man in the High Castle": Exploring how history and culture diverge in an alternate post-WWII reality

Science fiction is much more than quantum physics on paper, it's also a good "what if" story!  We hope this episode will expand your list of "must watch shows" using multiverse theory in science fiction.
