Set in a far more believable vision of the near-future than most dystopian near-future shows, Australian series The Commons explores the possible effects and ethical dilemmas of climate change, and how exactly we’re going to save the planet. Centred on pregnant

neuropsych­ologist Eadie and her diseasestu­dying husband, Lloyd, the series follows a bunch of thought-provoking narrative strands. Although they take a while to fully get going, there’s plenty to keep us busy imagining what it’d be like living in a world much like the one we live in now, but with acid rain a normal part of the weather forecast.
