Review: Netflix’s ‘3 Body Problem’ is an engrossing tale of a hostile alien invasion

Netflix has found a most prominent seat at the head of the table for provocative sci-fi fare with the release of “3 Body Problem,” a very different shade of existential alien infiltration project crafted with an epic scope and profound environmentalism topics which must be witnessed to be believed, all distilled down to an eight-hour marvel.

Adapted from the “Remembrance of Earth’s Past” trilogy of Hugo Award-winning science fiction novels by Chinese author Cixin Liu, “3 Body Problem” was created by “Game of Thrones”‘ David Benioff and D.B. Weiss with “True Blood’s” Alexander Woo, so it’s got serious Hollywood credentials straight out of the gate. Netflix’s multi-layered prestige series takes its name (a term relating to orbital mechanics) from the first book in that sprawling apocalyptic trilogy.
