A character looks off into the distance and their heart skips a beat as they notice a thick, ominous fog start to swallow practically everything in view. As that fog spreads and inches closer, however, they come to find out that it's way more dangerous than they could've imagined.
No, we're not talking about Stephen King's The Mist. This is the basic premise of Prime Video's British series The Rig, which puts a terrifying new twist on the familiar storyline by having the characters trapped aboard an oil rig located off the coast of Scotland. The deadly fog cuts off all communication with those who are on shore, so the group is forced to fend for themselves with limited supplies while navigating rising tensions.
As expected, the series is packed with great performances and it brilliantly balances real science with supernatural elements. But what makes the series particularly bingeable is that it's character-driven, and the build-up of suspense definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat.
