HBO Max presents new “The Flight Attendant” and “Westworld”
We’re no longer in a TV wasteland, so be prepared for the streaming services to pile up even stronger than they did in 2021. Production is back in full swing and HBO Max has amassed a lot. prestige series and not so prestigious for the taking. I’m really looking forward to a new one Hacks season because, hey, give me smart Jean Smart, and she’ll support my life force. Well, HBO Max doesn’t stop there.
There’s a ton to look forward to in the sizzle coil above, which also reminds me of how, about five years ago, the idea of a Game of thrones spin-off is said to be one of the most exciting TV goodies around. We are now looking down Dragon house, which is always something to look forward to (a lot, actually), but Matt Smith and his Targaryen wig are going to have to work hard to get through this final season of the series. Plus, we first see two high-profile comeback shows: Kaley Cuoco proving everyone wrong in more than The stewardess and the Man in Black staring at Caleb more Westworld. Does Caleb seem confused to you, more than anything else? Of course he does. He also doesn’t know what’s going on in this series.
On a more digestible note: more new shows and returns parade before our eyes at a breakneck pace. There’s John Cena’s Suicide Squad character in Peacemaker; the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts special that will hopefully get around all of JK Rowling’s mess; and several new originals to come. These include Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, The plumbers of the White House, We own this town, Julia, Love death, and The wife of the time traveler. Also, there are more returning shows, including Nevers, Raised by wolves, and a last hurray for Its dark materials.
Here’s my take out: give me Jean Smart, Kaley Cuoco, and dragons.
