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.
