I was not yet able to see the second season, as it is not out on german Netflix just yet, I can only say something about the first one. I like it a lot, to be honest. It is sometimes a bit scary, dark and definitively has some tension to it! It does not fail to entertain, despite having only a 5.33/10 on rottentomatoes!
Because there's not much in the Wikipedia article on the plot, I quote it here for simplicity:
Bloom, a fairy with fire powers, enrolls at a magical boarding school in the Otherworld called Alfea College. There, she shares a suite with Stella (a light fairy), Aisha (a water fairy), Terra (an earth fairy), and Musa (a mind fairy). With the help of her four new friends, Bloom starts to learn more about her past. Meanwhile, ancient creatures called the Burned Ones return to the Otherworld and threaten everyone at Alfea.
Because it has some dark scenes, the show might be not appropriate for young children, although it is about fairies and from its description seems to be targeting children!
The TV Series “Away” which premiered on Netflix in 2020. Unfortunately the series was canceled after just one season, although the story was completed.
This is another Sci-Fi Series, but the main focus I want to take here is not the fact that it plays on a space ship, because that is only a circumstance. The real deal with this series is that it is about human emotions, fears and hopes. The series does not have the best rating on, for example, rottentomatoes (6.22/10), still:
Away doesn't reach the stratosphere as a spacetime adventure, but emotional earnestness and a strong cast help make this a compelling enough journey to the stars.
And I wholeheartedly agree with that.
The episodes are not that long either (44 to 57 minutes), so you can watch the whole series on either a weathered weekend or as a bedtime movie!
Despite it not being the typical Sci-Fi action thriller, the series does not lack of a certian tension.
