“It’s the power of love!” Can’t help but sing along to that one when Back to the Future is on TV. It’s been 33 years now since the release of the first film and the franchise is easily still just as popular. But such a popular franchise should surely be streaming on Netflix right? Let’s find out!

Back to the Future is arguably one of the most famous sci-fi franchises of all time. Not to mention it is one of the best trilogies of all time too. For Michael J Fox and Christopher Llyod, the roles of Marty and Doc respectively would be their career-defining roles. On a side note director Robert Zemeckis has promised that the franchise will not be getting rebooted for as long as he is alive! Phew!

Teenager Marty McFly is sent back in time in a DeLorean after his friend Doc Brown is murdered by terrorists. Arriving 30 years in the past in 1955 Marty accidentally stops his Father and Mother from meeting for the first time and soon finds himself fighting off bully Biff, his mother has a crush on him and his father is a complete dork. To make sure he still exists and to go back to the future Marty turns to the only man who help him, Doc Brown!
