It is easy to find a person who cannot imagine their lives without movies and TV series. Many people watch something daily to get distracted, immerse themselves in a completely different atmosphere, switch their attention, and just enjoy an interesting storyline. Some TV shows turn out to be so catchy and fascinating that people sacrifice their other tasks for the sake of another episode. And while students can just pay for papers and make as much room as they need for watching, others may face a problem, overdoing with such a pastime. It is especially true for the well-directed TV series produced by HBO. After all, it is home to the most discussed and popular movies and shows for a reason. Thus, if you are searching for a new TV series to get hooked on, you can choose something from the list offered below. It involves the most popular options this year.
The White Lotus
If you are fond of satirical comedies with drama elements, this TV series can be the right option for you. The first season is quite small and consists of only six episodes, so if you don’t want to become a zombie who makes small breaks while watching only for a nap, you should start with it. The plot tells about the luxury resort in Hawaii and its new visitors who come there for a week’s holiday. Even though such a place suggests total relaxation and the absence of any issues, the main characters will face scandals, robbery, and even murder. This TV series can boast a vibe of Agatha Christie‘s stories, so you will have to guess the murder’s name till the epilog.
Sometimes we all want to watch something light to chill out after a hard day at work. If you are looking for this kind of movie, pay attention to Starstruck. The main character, Jessie, dreams of being happy and successful, but she has no idea what to do. Like many other people, she decides to go with the flow and believes that everything will happen by itself. A lucky chance must turn her life upside down. After numerous failures, a one-night stand results in an unexpected continuation since a stranger turns out to be a film star. In other words, it is a mixture of Cinderella and Bridget Jones from a new perspective.
The Flight Attendant
If you are not interested in soap operas but want to tickle your nerves a bit, then you can watch a TV series that tells how one night can become a live nightmare. A flight attendant (Kaley Cuoco) is not a bad person but has serious issues with alcohol and doesn’t mind hooking up with a passenger for the whole night. One day she wakes up in the wrong hotel and finds a dead man in her bed. She doesn’t remember anything, so she cannot even guess what could happen. There is a chance that she is a killer, but is it the case? The ghost of the deceased helps her crack the mystery. Such a compulsive thriller can become the right option for people who like baffling plots.
Scenes From A Marriage
You should better avoid this TV series if you have some issues in relationships and you are walking on the edge because it may trigger you to get divorced. The number of people who decided to break up went up after they had watched the original Swedish show of the same name. The American version tells a story of a married couple that looks successful from the outside but suffers from various issues. The main heroine (Jessica Chastain) is an ambitious woman who confidently climbs a career ladder. Her husband (Oscar Isaac) is a compliant philosophy professor who has taken a break and faced a creativity crisis. The TV series consists only of five episodes, and each of them highlights some issues of modern couples. It will be about gender roles, monogamy, love, etc.
It is considered one of the best comedies produced by HBO for the last time, so if you are into such a genre, it is worth giving it a try. You will watch an embarrassing story (at first glance) of a gifted comedy legend who is about to lose her Vegas residency because the casino owner believes she is too old-school and “incomprehensible” for current viewers. Thus, he wants to find someone more relevant to attract new visitors. The only offered way out is to work together with a representative of Gen Z who knows the target audience and what things to offer to hook it. Their cooperation and interaction is the thing that makes this TV show so catchy and hilarious. So, if you like good jokes, you will definitely enjoy watching this masterpiece released by HBO.
