A mysterious series: Devil In Ohio (Netflix)

Synopsis

The opinion of CNET France

On paper, Devil In Ohio offers an intriguing and interesting story, but its execution leaves something to be desired because the show drags on. However, the series manages to grab the viewer from its first episodes because it inserts enough mystery into its story to make you want to see the sequel. Its slow pace has the advantage of reinforcing the sordid atmosphere of the story and increasing the threat hanging over the family at the heart of the series.

The show’s sinister, sinister vibe remains captivating throughout the season and makes the viewer want to know the end of the story. On the production side, Devil In Ohio is quite well directed and benefits from a convincing cast, starring Emily Deschanel (bones) and Madeleine Arthur, particularly effective in the role of the enigmatic Mae.

In short, if you like stories of dark sects and toxic relationships between characters, you will be spellbound by Devil In Ohio. Even if the series has its faults, it remains a good entertainment that keeps the viewer in suspense and offers a captivating story. Have.

An endearing series: An Outstanding Team (Prime Video)

Synopsis

During the Second World War, male athletes were requisitioned at the front. To keep the sport going, club managers team up to create a women’s baseball league.

The opinion of CNET France

Remake of the eponymous 1992 film starring Tom Hanks, Geena Davis and Madonna, An Outstanding Team follows the adventures of a women’s baseball team during World War II. But unlike the film, the Prime Video series is more committed and deepens its characters much more to tackle a multitude of subjects. From racism to homophobia to gender inequalities, the series does not hesitate to touch on all the difficult subjects without ever overdoing it.

The great strength ofAn Outstanding Team, it’s his casting that gives us funny and particularly endearing characters. It doesn’t take long to get involved in the story of these women who have only one desire: to play baseball and make their dreams come true. From Abbi Jacobson to Chanté Adams and D’Arcy Carden via Gbemisola Ikumelo, all of his women are touching and captivating.

No need to be passionate about baseball to appreciate the series because its real subject is not the sport but rather its players and their emancipation. And it is with humor and a light tone thatAn Outstanding Team tells us about the lives of these athletes fighting tirelessly to find a place for themselves in a man’s world where they have almost no social status. Do not miss.

An atypical series: Black Mirror (Netflix)

Synopsis

This British anthology explores the relationship of humans with technology.

The opinion of CNET France

Each episode of black-mirror has the ability to make people think, disturb and above all surprise their viewers. Throughout the episodes and seasons, the series explores our relationship to screens, social networks and technology in general. Imbued with a dark and uneasy atmosphere, the series encourages its viewers not to be passive in front of their screens and invites them to question their relationship with what is happening in the story. The episodes then have a strong impact on the public and never leave anyone indifferent.

black-mirror being an anthology, the quality of its episodes is not always equal. Some are more memorable than others, but all have the ability to touch each viewer in different ways. The icing on the cake, the series often uses actors of great caliber and always demonstrates careful writing and production. Its undeniable general quality therefore makes it a particularly successful series.

The sixth season of the series should land soon on Netflix but without a specific release date, this gives you plenty of time to catch up on all the episodes of this futuristic anthology. Despite a pessimistic atmosphere, we want more.
