Meeting up to see a fashion series has become a fairly common plan lately, as well as commenting in real time on WhatsApp highlights of a plot if everyone is watching it at home. To have a laugh these days with your friends, we recommend six comedies that you will undoubtedly want to talk about.
The White Lotus (Hbo MAx)
The first season of this delirious six-episode black comedy left no one indifferent and the second (seven episodes) is on the same path. Both satirically capture the vacations of several guests with a lot of money in a luxury hotel (first in Hawaii and then in Sicily), where the most unexpected things happen. Despite dealing with idyllic places and supposedly almost perfect characters, the reality of their miseries haunts each of the protagonists.
Regarding the cast, which included names like Alexandra Daddario, Sidney Sweeney or Jake Lacy in the first installment, it only repeats Jennifer Coolidge in the second season, in the character of the eccentric and apparently little sane Tanya McQuoid. She accompanies her, among others, Theo James (Divergent), in the role of the charming Cameron, whose statuesque body will lend itself to more than one comment in the occasional scene.
It is being the series this Christmas, which everyone is talking about. And it is that the American production of eight episodes directed by Tim Burton does not disappoint. The first season follows Wednesday Addams, the creepy daughter of the peculiar Addams Family, in his student days at Nevermore Academy, where he tries to master his supernatural powers while meeting new people with whom he has to learn to relate. As he adjusts to his new and normal world, he has to solve a series of mysteries, including the one related to his parents Morticia and Gomez Addams 30 years ago.
The performance of the protagonist Jenna Ortega It is impeccable and the mystery of the plot, no matter how focused on teenagers it is, also hooks the adult viewer. Ortega is accompanied in the cast by Catherine Zeta-Jones, Gwendoline Christie and Christina Ricci herself.
Fleebag (Amazon Prime Video)
Emmys, Golden Globes, Critics Choice Awards… The story of a shameless and promiscuous thirty-something Londoner who goes through a life crisis after losing her best friend was one of the television phenomena a couple of years ago.

The series has two seasons of six episodes each.
The woman across the street from the girl in the window (Netflix)
The wonderful Kristen Bell stars in this eight-episode series with an absurdly long name (and that almost no one can remember or say at once).

One day, a very nice-looking neighbor moves in across the street, and Anna starts spying on him. The monotony of her days ends when she witnesses a crime, but no one seems to believe her. What’s more, everyone labels her crazy because of her addictions, her hallucinations and her paralyzing fear of rain. In her mission to find the truth, there are some very funny scenes in this series that parodies psychological thrillers and mystery movies.
