While there are many shows on the internet that can deliver great plotlines and visuals in the genres of action and science fiction, not many can combine the two in the perfect way while still including other elements like romance, drama, family bonding, and an emotional connection.
If you love watching action and sci-fi shows but feel like something is lacking and need more, then you need to watch these amazing Netflix shows. Not only will you get your daily dose of some well-executed action but you’ll also get a storyline with deep meaning and intent. Let’s take a look at what these shows are.
Along with being the story of a retired vigilante jumping back into action to save his town, Black Lightning touches on the deeper issues of love and the importance of family.

Supergirl is, undoubtedly, one of the most famous sci-fi and action shows of all time - especially because it is one of the very few shows with a female superhero protagonist.

Flash follows the journey of a young boy by the name of Barry Allen as he gains super speed after being exposed to some science experiment that went wrong.
