An Enigmatic Series: 1899 (Netflix)

Synopsis

Passengers on a ship bound for New York see their journey take a dramatic turn when another ship adrift is discovered in their path.

The opinion of CNET France

Created by Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar, already at the origin of Dark on Netflix, 1899 is a series full of mysteries and a real puzzle to solve for its viewer. Its basic concept is captivating, with this story of a ship that disappeared at sea which resurfaces to disrupt the journey of passengers from all over the world, but the mayonnaise is hard to take.

Over the eight episodes that make up the first season of the series, the plot multiplies the twists but fails to set up truly captivating characters. If the actors are far from being bad and the starting pitch is very interesting, the series gets bogged down in sub-plots which slows down the narration and prevents everything from truly gaining in emotion. We still recommend 1899 to those who like stories made up of screenplay strings to unravel, especially since the series is visually very nice.

A crazy series: We Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp (Netflix)

Synopsis

Movie prequel Wet Hot American Summerreleased in 2001, and relatively unknown in France, this series by David Wain and Michael Showalter shows the beginnings of Camp Firewood as it opened its doors in the summer of 1981.

The opinion of CNET France

With his schoolboy humor and his passion for exaggeration, We Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is the kind of comedy that will appeal to those who like series that are not particularly finesse. We find the actors of the film, like Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper and Paul Rudd, who resume their role as teenagers but with ridiculous wigs and above all, a lot of self-mockery. It’s hard not to laugh at so much completely voluntary absurdity.

Between its very heavy dialogues, its incredible situations and the point of honor that the series makes it always do more, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is a merry mess that puts you in a good mood. This type of comedy that pushes the sliders of parody to the maximum is not to everyone’s taste, but it will delight connoisseurs of the original film, and curious fond of offbeat humor.

A surprising series: Superman & Lois (Salto)

Synopsis

After years in Metropolis, Clark Kent and Lois Lane decide to move to the small town of Smallville in order to live a less hectic professional life and focus on their sons, Jonathan and Jordan. But Superman’s life is never easy, neither for him nor for his family.

The opinion of CNET France

You’d think Superman’s story had been examined enough times in film and television to fail to make it an interesting serial topic. However, Superman & Lois proves the opposite by staging Clark Kent and Lois Lane when they are parents and try as best they can to juggle family life and superhero life. darker than Smallville and more serious than Lois and Clarkthis series sees Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf) resume the role of Superman that he had already camped in Supergirl and with great efficiency.

The great strength of Superman & Lois it is to have centered its story around the family life of the two title characters. Jordan and Jonathan add a new dimension to the story of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, and their interpreters are quite endearing. In sum, the series offers an innovative angle on one of the most famous superheroes of the small and big screen, and offers captivating intrigues embellished with convincing visual effects.
