Among the best series on Crave
Who Is America?
If you like politics and love Sacha Baron Cohen, you’ll enjoy his Showtime-edited series. The protagonist traps political actors and passers-by by putting them in really embarrassing situations. The show, although political and dealing with very serious subjects, is really funny and worth watching.
The Wire, The Sopranos, Game of Thrones et Lovecraft Country
Now that we’ve introduced you to a series from Showtime, let’s see what HBO has to offer. Obviously, The Wire, The Sopranos, or Game of Thrones are all aged series.
However, if you want to watch something current, we recommend Lovecraft Country which is based on the novel of the same name written by Matt Ruff. Exploring themes of anti-black racism, this drama series follows the character of Atticus Freeman on his journey United States in the segregated 1950s Accompanied by his friends, he is looking for his missing father. As if the discrimination wasn’t enough, they must face the threat of monsters straight out of Lovecraft’s universe.
Star Trek for sci-fi fans
If you are more of a science fiction fan, Star Trek Discovery is a series taking place in the universe of the famous franchise. We follow the crew of the USS Discovery as they travel the galaxy, meeting new civilizations and discovering new worlds at the same time. It’s a beautiful series of space exploration that uses recent cinema techniques and technologies. With Star Trek having aged less well than Star Wars, this series is refreshing.
