The Legend of Vox Machina
This American animated production is based on the Critical Role web series. Happy, fearless adventurers go on adventures to save their kingdom from dark magic and rampant monsters. A fiction with trashy humor that will especially appeal to fans of RPGs, and will especially evoke games from Dungeon & Dragon.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power
How can we talk about Amazon series without talking about rings of power? The most expensive series in the world the September 2022 broadcast was timed to compete with HBO’s House of The Dragon, which was released at the same time. This colossal production, which took place three thousand years before the tale of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, offered to explore this very rich universe. Although not all fans agree that it is a successful adaptation, it is undeniably a very high quality production. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is promising, but it will take patience to finally see the sequel.
A return to the 80s, but also in 2019! 4 young women are thrust into our present while living their lives as newspaper messengers. They discover a new environment there which to them is futuristic as they face their future.. With two factions of time travelers at war, they will have to find a way back to 1988 at any cost. Although this series is promising, there will be no sequel with a season 2.
Peripherals, Flynne’s Worlds
In 2032, our world has been hugely shaken by technology, leaving society and mentality affected. It is in this context that Flynne Fisher discovers an extremely realistic video game where she sees a murder there. This striking scene makes him wonder if it was a fiction or a dark reality. Peripherals, The Worlds of Flynne is visually stunning and offers viewers an undeniable narrative quality. We will just have to wait for season 2 to see how this excellent production will develop.
An ex-soldier, Jack Reacher, who lives doing odd jobs during his travels, is arrested and accused of a murder he did not commit. Not just any murder, it’s his brother who was investigating a money laundering case. Inspired by the novel From the bottom of the abyss, Reacher is a very good surprise for fans of action and suspense. The series doesn’t take things lightly and stays pretty true to the book.

The boys – season 3
The third season of The Boys saw the light of day in the summer of 2022. This series, where the heroes are the villains with psychopathic behavior or at best big immature people, is back in force. With a new hero named Petit Soldat (Soldier Boy in VO), this season 3 offers an adventure that is still bloody and immoral. With a Homelander at the height of its madness, The Boys promised us a real spectacle.
The boys present: Diabolical
Still on the side of the anti-hero license, The Boys: Diabolical presents an animated series set in the same universe as The Boys. This animated spin-off is an anthology of several superhero stories. If you’re looking for blood, violence and dark humor, you’ve come to the right place.. With only 8 episodes, The Boys Presents: Diabolical is a snap to watch, especially if you thoroughly enjoyed the adventures of The Boys and The Seven.
The Devil’s Hour is a chilling thriller which features a social worker named Lucy who will be plagued by terrifying visions at exactly 3:33am. Far from having a pleasant environment, her entourage consists of her emotionless 8-year-old son, her disturbingly behaving mother, and her haunted house. The icing on the cake, his name is inexplicably linked to murder. Lucy therefore tries to find meaning in this whole situation.
Towards the stars
Towards the Stars or Night Sky in VO is a science fiction series. A retired couple named the Yorks hide an extraordinary secret: they have access to a room that leads directly and without explanation to another planet. Taking advantage of this incredible phenomenon to admire the landscape from another world, they are not safe from danger., especially after an enigmatic young man appears. A series of excellent quality which unfortunately will not be eligible for a second season. Although the cancellation disappointed fans, we can still consider ourselves lucky to have been able to enjoy this remarkable but nonetheless short production.
