World getting weirder

Encounters: new Netflix UFO/UAP documentary (trailer).

While you’re debating whether Starfleet or the Galactic Empire has superior engineering, or if H.P. Lovecraft’s monsters would stand a chance against Godzilla, Netflix is set to drop a UFO documentary that’s aiming to rewrite the conversation on extraterrestrial life. No, you’re not hallucinating from one too many cans of Romulan Ale. Get ready for Encounters, a series that promises to be as groundbreaking as the Roswell Incident but with substantially more facts and less tinfoil hats!

The Truth is Streamier Than Fiction

Executive produced by the powerhouse trio of Amblin Television, Emmy-winning Boardwalk Pictures, and Vice Studios, and directed by the intrepid Yon Motskin of Generation Hustle fame, Encounters isn’t your run-of-the-mill, shaky-cam UFO exposé. Oh no, this is a four-part cosmic odyssey that’s more meticulously researched than a Vulcan science officer’s logbook.

Globe-Trotting and Sky-Watching

Prepare to pin your location markers all over Google Earth because this series is going international! From eerie lights doing a Texas Two-Step in the sky over a small-town, to what can only be described as underwater UFOs (or should we say USOs – Unidentified Submersible Objects?) spooking a Welsh coastal village, Encounters spans the globe. And let’s not forget an entire schoolyard in Zimbabwe getting front-row seats to an alien meet-and-greet, as well as something decidedly extra-planetary tinkering with a Japanese nuclear plant.

Real People, Unreal Experiences

What sets Encounters apart is its heart—the personal accounts. Told from the perspective of those who’ve had firsthand run-ins with these celestial curiosities, the series doesn’t just dabble in scientific jargon or military reports. It dives deep into how these ‘close encounters of the fourth kind’ affect the lives, families, and even whole communities of the witnesses. Yep, this isn’t just about the aliens; it’s about us Earthlings too.

Cosmic Conundrums and Astonishing Truths

Are you one of those people who loves piecing together puzzles? Well, Encounters offers a puzzle where each piece is a jaw-dropping, “I-can’t-believe-this-is-happening” moment. As the series connects dots across time, cultures, and locations, it uncovers a set of uncanny similarities, not to mention an unsettling and awe-inspiring universal truth: extraterrestrial encounters are as global as they are mind-boggling.

The Final Frontier of Streaming

So, mark your space calendars and send a memo to your alien pen pal, because Encounters is beaming onto your Netflix queue faster than you can say “E.T. phone home.” With UFOs now discussed in congressional hearings and major journalistic outlets confirming that we’re probably not alone, this series is set to be the The X-Files of documentaries. Except, you know, potentially real.
