The Peripheral Review: What Amazon's new sci-fi show's title really means

Amazon's 'The Peripheral' encourages its characters to question the nature of their reality.

Chloë Grace Moretz's Flynne Fisher is at the center of this confusion as she enters a virtual simulation.

Spoiler Alert! It will need you to watch Episode 2 to understand what the title actually means.

During one of Flynne's future visits, she discovers her avatar is actually robotic.

Another spoiler alert! These robotic bodies are the peripherals described by the title of the sci-fi series.

As a result, 'The Peripheral''s title demonstrates the future timeline's robots as well as an allusion to Flynne's time-traveling crown.

'The Peripheral' is based on William Gibson's novel.

However, Scott B Smith took inspiration from Damon Lindelof’s playbook when writing the series.

Meanwhile, Moretz has a net worth of $12 million in 2022.
