In addition, it is always good to see and recommend unknown works for the general public.
Defend Jacob (Apple TV)
Mystery and suspense pouring out is what
Defender a Jacob
, one of those brilliant series hidden on Apple TV, a platform with quite interesting productions that for some reason has not just started.
, Marvel's Captain America, changes his register to become a renowned district attorney who is faced with the decision of his life: to be true to his principles as a jurist or to be carried away by the love of his son, played by him Emerging
(with whom he already coincided in the hilarious movie
), suspected of a gruesome crime.
For her part,
, whom many will recognize for
, plays a mother with too many doubts about the innocence of her offspring.
The eight-episode miniseries, based on the bestselling novel by
, who has made a name for himself in the industry as a screenwriter for the last two installments of
Planet of the Apes
The series dedicated to the explosive New York music scene in the 70s had
producing (and the latter directing the wild pilot episode), with the collaboration of
(legendary editor of
, writer of
and creator of
In front of the spotlight,
as Richie Finestra, founder of the American Century Records label, and
as his disenchanted wife.
But, against all odds (HBO had announced a second season as soon as it was premiered) the series did not quite come together, despite the high level of its episodes, perhaps due to the pressure involved in debuting with which, for many, is one of the best Scorsese works, which is saying.
The series was canceled, becoming a whole cult series, with several voices calling for somehow to recover the plots that were left unfinished or, at
the very least
the Nasty Bits
, the fictional group that participated in its amazing soundtrack. .
The Infiltrator (Amazon Prime Video)
(House) should be more than enough reasons to watch a series.
If the incredible
(Queen Elizabeth in
also joins the cast
and together they play the protagonists of the novel of the same name by the recently deceased
John Le Carré
, there is little excuse.
But the story of a former British soldier recruited by the intelligence services to infiltrate a network of arms traffickers has not obtained the deserved fame, despite accumulating nominations for the Golden Globe, the Bafta TV and the Emmys.
Meteor Garden (Netfix)

This is one of the delusional advice given to Dong Shancai

a crazy love-hate relationship
Perfect for delving into the addictive world of oriental romantic comedies with fifty episodes per season.

a delight for all ages
, its synopsis may seem topical: a teenage princess from the unconventional kingdom of Mewni is sent to earth to live in foster care with the Díaz family and wander into Echo Creek High School, since she has just inherited the real magic wand, an artifact not very suitable for irresponsible hands.
But what it really offers is a wonderful road to maturity with
a supporting cast that many live-action dramas would like for themselves
From Marco Díaz to Glossaryck to Cabeza Pony, not forgetting Ludo or Janna, all of them are perfectly defined, producing moments of a true audiovisual level.
Missing, yes, that Disney + raises the two seasons with which the series ends.
See (Apple TV)
Yes, it has already been released.
The series with which Apple promoted its new television platform has been available since November 2019 for anyone who has recently bought a product from the apple brand.

Game of Thrones
, has not managed to transcend expectations despite its interesting premise: in the distant future, a virus has massacred a good part of The humanity.

But it was not like that: the series ended in its 18th episode.

Many of its harshest critics admit that despite its flaws, it is hypnotic.
