The Offer is a limited-edition series retelling the experience of Al Ruddy making one of the greatest classics of Hollywood - The Godfather. By using the iconic scenes from the original and deep diving into the incidents that shaped them, 2 is just as enjoyable as the movie. The three things we like about this series more than the movie are the explanation behind the plot, the top-notch filmmaking and the ideas that went behind the performances. After all, if the movie became a classic, there's no reason to stop the series about the movie becoming a hit.
Never Seen Again
Never Seen Again is an interestingly new concept to watch, maybe even sympathize with. The show revolves around missing people and what their disappearance leaves behind for their loved ones. Hosted by Tyler Perry, we come to realize that a person can really be someone else's everything, no matter what is conveyed during their time together. What is even sadder is how the families of the lost persons spend sleepless nights searching for them, even after years, without losing hope. If there’s one lesson to take away from this show, it is this – always make sure your loved ones know that they are loved.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds
There are few movies from the space exploration genre that have a chapter in the history of movies like the Star Trek series. Star Trek: Strange New Worlds gives us more depth into this universe. We’re taken along with Captain Pike, Officer Spock and Number One on their journeys to new worlds aboard the USS Enterprise. You may ask – how is this different from what we already know? The series dives into the stories that led to the movie franchise, and so it is right up there with the best of the franchise. For Star Trek fans, you are definitely in for a treat.
Why Women Kill
Why Women Kill is one of our favorite shows of all time, period. All the incidents happen within one house, which adds an element of comedic horror to the plot. Placed across three different decades, the premise follows a husband and wife and how they deal with the infidelity surrounding their marriage. We enjoyed the suspenseful situations, where you are left with a new twist after each episode. The plot is brilliant and we’re happy with the way it's presented. You’ll start to care for the women involved, and in the end, you’ll find answers to Why Women Kill.
An alien Covenant aims to take out the human race. In the year 2552, there is only one person who carries hope for the humans on planet Madrigal – Master Chief John-117 and his army of super-soldier Spartans. How do they plan to do this? By finding the Halo, which is the key to humanity’s survival. There’s a certain intrigue in how the show converts the video game plot into a full-scale onscreen universe, but the cast and crew have done a fine job at it. We have to mention how we love the special effects – they do bring the video game to life.
A documentary-style series that follows the path of a fictional pro-League of Legends esports team, Players is the story of the team’s entering the global championship after years of missing out by a hair’s breadth. Being their first championship, they cannot let this chance go to waste, even if it means putting their differences aside. This is primarily between their 17-year-old prodigy and their 27-year-old professional. The series is also a look into the gaming industry, which seems foreign but is a large hidden enterprise. Overall, Players is a very good show to binge on.
The Amazing Race
The Amazing Race is a timeless show – one that maintains the quality no matter the number of seasons that get produced. Two member teams travel around the world solving challenges and adventures to win the grand prize of $1 million. Hosted by Phil Keoghan, the challenges are interesting and attention-grabbing, to say the least. There are few reality television shows that maintain constancy in creativity, and the show is in part a travelogue for us viewers to enjoy. From NYC’s Central Park to Johannesburg in the same episode, this show maintains user engagement not observed in most reality shows.
Set in a post-apocalyptic world conceptualized by Stephen King, The Stand takes us to a time when our world is plagued with disease and the war between good and evil is the only thing that people can talk about. 108-year-old Mother Abigail and a handful of survivors who surround her are the only ones who can ensure that the road for humanity doesn’t lead to complete decimation. Who is their nemesis? The Dark Man, Randall Flagg, holds unstoppable power and hides it behind an even more menacing persona. With its A-list cast and dark method of storytelling, there’s much to expect from the second season of this show.
Based on the bestselling novel by C.J. Box, Joe Pickett follows the daily happenings in the life of Joe Pickett, a game warden, and his family. As they find themselves wrapped in a larger conspiracy when their attempts to protect their land and town come face to face with a large corporation that will do whatever it takes to gain control. All blame shifts to Pickett, when a murder victim is found on his doorstep, and the rage of a town that is already facing an economic collapse directs it towards him. He must now find a way to save his family, his people and his land from outside forces that threaten to destroy everything he holds dear.
Love Island US
Love is in the air, especially when islanders are coupled to play games designed to kindle sparks in exotic settings. Love Island USA puts traveling islanders to play games and challenges together, causing temperatures to rise and dramas to take shape. This forces people to question the relationships in their lives and whether they truly want to explore something beyond what they already have. Add to this an element of uncertainty – viewers get to decide how couples are paired and who will remain on the next week. The show maintains a formula similar to its UK edition, but it's just as comforting.
Dave Johnson is from a small town, and he is a man who truly believes in the good in people. In The Neighborhood, he and his family move into a community in Michigan but turns out to be nothing like he expected. His neighbor Calvin Butler is not the kind to accept new neighbors quickly and is severely against change. Dave must find a way to connect with the community and ensure that they’re well integrated into the social fabric. But this will come at a cost, hilarious to our viewers.
FBI Agent Dale Cooper is commissioned with solving the murder of high schooler Laura Palmer. But there is much more than meets the eye in the town of Twin Peaks, as Dale discovers more about the girl’s life and the people in the town. The complex plot mixes in oddly appealing disasters that seem weird and quirky. Twin Peaks is funny, and mystifying despite the overall unsettling air it creates. An experiment of sorts, the show pays off because of its slow and quirk portrayal of events. If there is one show you could choose to watch over the weekend, this would be it.
Ghosts is an eerie way to convey supernatural comedy, but it succeeds largely due to the cast that maintains the chemistry throughout. When a dead-broke couple inherits a country house that exceeds their wildest dreams, their decision to move in immediately may have been made too soon. When they finally move in, they discover that the country house isn’t as grand as it seems from the outside and also – it’s filled with ghosts of the former residents. The format ends up being very silly, but silly is also a genre of comedy that we feel is much necessary in today’s times.
Positioned as the story that defined the world of Yellowstone, 1883 is the account of the Dutton family navigating from a poverty-stricken life in Texas to a great escape to Montana, through the Great Plains. If nothing else, the show captures you with the shooting locations – few things can make a tough life like what the Dutton family experiences seem so serene and peaceful. But the show depicts the harsh reality of the Wild West. The show doesn’t have to go through much to keep you hooked – all the ends tie up to create one beautifully produced ode.
