Sarah Jessica Parker

The praised reboot of ‘Sex and The City’, ‘And Just Like That’, was that necessary turn of the nineties series that marked the entire millennial generation. Now, in a review of the events of the past where Carrie Bradshaw succumbed to the events of her youth, the new HBO Max series contemplates the same group of friends going through the crisis of their fifties and with all the complexity of circumstances quite different from the ones seen in his first series.


Joshua Jackson

Paramount+ features a series that is the reimagining of ‘Fatal Attraction’. While it shares a lot with the iconic original film, it is also a critic of the entitlement of the 80’s and a piece that shows how we get affected by midlife crisis. 


Brian Cox

The time has come to find out who will be the final heir to “Succession”, the series with which HBO Max continues to show that they are capable of producing the best series of the moment.
