Years and Years

The story of an English family in a frighteningly realistic near-future dystopia that begins with Trump’s second term and goes downhill from there.  Terrible things happen, but there’s no apocalypse – everyone just muddles through.  Medical and technological marvels continue to be developed even as the political and economic situation deteriorates.  The series is sharp and well written – some of the political arguments seemed ripped from current news stories, even thought they were written months ago.  Featuring Emma Thompson in a small but important role as a seemingly buffoonish politician.
