Raised by Wolves will satisfy those who want to spend a lot of time (almost 10 hours) in a world brought to the screen with the help of Ridley Scott. Two androids, Mother and Father, attempt to establish an atheistic human colony on a new planet, after a war with a religious order destroys Earth. But they soon discover that controlling the beliefs of humans is a complicated task. Directing the first two episodes, in addition to pulling the strings as an executive producer, Scott sets up a provocative exploration of artificial intelligence and religious beliefs. There’s blood, great acting, and a powerful female lead in Amanda Collin’s “Mother.”

This compulsive thriller starring Kaley Cuoco is one of HBO Max’s best new shows. Cuoco plays Cassie, a reckless flight attendant who sleeps with a passenger on a wild night. She wakes up in Bangkok with hardly any memories and a corpse in bed with her. With the ghost of the deceased helping her rebuild things, she recovers and takes on the mystery of what happened. Watch out for a fantastic title sequence, as well as a surprisingly dark psychological overlay. But he mostly enjoys the hilarious combination of an inept detective awkwardly moving through the world of cold killers.

Love Life is an anthology series that focuses on the love life of a different character until they meet the person they need to be with. The first chapter follows Anna Kendrick’s Darby, an aspiring art collector who dates a variety of different men with complicated results.

The best TV show of 2021 could already be here. It’s a Sin follows a group of young gay men who lived in London during the 1980s, just when HIV / AIDS was first diagnosed. This unique look at the early stages of what became a death sentence is handled with the irrepressible joy for life of creator Russell T Davies. The warm and empathetic characters continue to live their lives to the fullest, flitting through bustling share houses and local bars to the beat of an 80s soundtrack. Fast-paced, elegant and revealing, with a predominant sense of hope, It’s a Sin is a great triumph for everyone to fall in love.

Search Party caught the attention of HBO Max and went into production with the streamer in its third and fourth seasons. The latter is arguably the best yet, taking the story of four clueless millennials to even greater extremes, including a strangely brilliant cameo from Susan Sarandon. But we start when Dory, in her twenties, becomes an amateur detective to track down a missing woman she barely knew in college. Really, she is looking for something else: herself. Equally cocky are her boyfriend Drew, scene-stealing Elliott, and hilariously blonde Portia. This bizarre show somehow creates the perfect cocktail of dark humor, mystery, and wacky characters. A collector’s item that will not appear very often.

From the minds of the gang behind Horrible Histories comes Ghosts, a sitcom that manages to get better and better with each episode. The ever-reliable Charlotte Ritchie (Feel Good, Call The Midwife) plays Alison, a woman who fixes up the old mansion she inherited with the help of her amateur builder husband. Besides money problems, their renovation plans are not helped by the ghostly residents who want the house to themselves. If you’re looking for a purely lighthearted display, Ghosts offers a high gag rate, a talented comedic ensemble, and even an endearing bow of friendship. Above all, it is gleefully silly.

This dramatic comedy about a Syrian asylum seeker relies heavily on the warmer and more welcoming side of the equation. It follows the life of a British family after they return from a vacation in France and discover a passenger hiding in the back of their car. There is endless charm to Sami’s fish-out-of-water antics as he adjusts to his new home. Homemade feel-good mines, full of friendly people willing to help a good man, even if that’s a struggle for some of the family members.

HBO max.

Stath Lets Flats is one of the best new British TV shows that deals in quintessentially absurd British humor. Stath is a socially inept Greek Cypriot rental agent whose father gives him a job for his company. Despite his ineptitude, Stath perseveres in his new calling, showing potential clients apartments with the power off or the security alarm blaring because he can’t remember the code. His attempts to impress his father burn out the same shameful appeal as The Office, which also spread in poignant moments that ensure you rooted in the characters. Stay for season 2 even better, which won three BAFTAs.

This black comedy takes us from London to Newcastle, Australia, after the misfortune of a woman who loses everything after the untimely death of her husband (don’t ask how he died). Bankrupt and desperate, Sammy is forced to return to her hometown with her son and daughter, where she soon discovers that she is not exactly a popular resident.

Based on a memoir, Pure is not your average coming of age comedy about a young woman recently moved to London. Marnie struggles with a form of OCD called Pure O, which causes her to have intrusive sexual thoughts, often at the worst times. (Her own mother appears in one of these thoughts, no wonder Marnie is leaving home). What Pure does best is approach stereotypes about OCD compassionately: Marnie goes through the same stresses as other twenty-somethings: a new job, her sexuality, and her friendship. . An enlightening, relatable and essential comedy.

I Hate Suzie sees Billie Piper team up once again with Secret Diary of a Call Girl writer Lucy Prebble. The result is a frenzied tour de force of ideas, led by a vulnerable performance by Piper. She plays the titular Suzie, an actress who, moments after winning a role in a Disney movie, discovers that she is one of the victims of a celebrity phone hacking scandal. Each episode explores a stage of trauma, addressing the question of how compromising leaks upset and perhaps liberate a person’s life. Amid the ruthless satire there is a wonderful friendship between Suzie and her manager Naomi (Leila Farzad).

Reaching its fifth and final season, this Italian crime drama based on a true story has carved out a place among the great gangster shows. It stands out for its realistic depiction of the Naples underworld, following a clan’s internal power struggle after its boss is arrested. With a dark and claustrophobic atmosphere and believable characters, Gomorrah is a refreshing and comprehensive piece of television.
