The Legend of Vox Machina
This American animated production is based on the Critical Role web-series. Cheerful, fearless adventurers go on an adventure to save their kingdom from dark magic and rampant monsters. A fiction with trashy humor that will particularly appeal to fans of Role Playing Games and which will notably evoke games of Dungeon & Dragon.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power
How can we talk about Amazon series without talking about the Rings of Power? The most expensive series in the world airing in September 2022 was timely to compete with HBO’s House of The Dragon which was released at the same time. Taking place three thousand years before the narration of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, this colossal production offered to explore this very rich universe. Although not all fans agree that this is a successful adaptation, it is undeniably a production of very high quality. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is promising, but it will take patience to finally see the rest.
A return to the 80s, but also in 2019! 4 young women find themselves propelled into our present as they led their lives as newspaper deliverers. They discover a new environment there which, for them, is futuristic, while meeting their future.. With two factions of time travelers at war, they will have to find a way back to 1988 at all costs. Although this series is promising, there will be no sequel with a season 2.
Peripherals, the worlds of Flynne
In 2032, our world has been enormously shaken up by technology, leaving society and mentalities impacted. 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 just have to wait for season 2 to see how this excellent production will develop.
A former soldier, Jack Reacher, who lives doing odd jobs during his travels, finds himself arrested and accused of a murder he did not commit. Not just any murder, it is that of his brother who was investigating a case of money trafficking. Inspired by the novel From the bottom of the abyss, Reacher is a very good surprise for fans of action and suspense. The series does not fall into the easy and remains quite faithful to the book.

The Boys – season 3
The third season of The Boys was released in the summer of 2022. This series where the heroes are the villains with psychopathic behaviors or, at best, large immature people, has come back in force. With a new hero by the name of 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 his madness, The Boys promised us a real spectacle.
The Boys presents: Diabolical
Still on the side of the anti-hero license, The Boys presents: Diabolical is an animated series taking place 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 just 8 episodes, The Boys Presents: Diabolical is a snap to watch, especially if you’ve thoroughly enjoyed the adventures of The Boys and The Seven.
The Devil’s Hour
The Devil’s Hour is a chilling thriller which features a social worker named Lucy who will be plagued by terrifying visions at exactly 3:33 a.m. 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 murders. 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 the appearance of an enigmatic young man. A series of excellent quality which will unfortunately not be entitled to a second season. Even if its cancellation disappointed fans, we can still consider ourselves lucky to have been able to enjoy this remarkable, but nevertheless short production.
