I’m talking Big Little Lies, which costars the one and only Meryl Streep in its second season. And Euphoria, which earned Zendaya an Emmy Award. There are more shows where these came from, too.
Have you heard about Years & Years, a political thriller that will hook you just like The Handmaid’s Tale did in 2017? What about Succession? Or A Black Lady Sketch Show? Or Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen, featuring a badass Regina King? Perhaps historical fiction is more your thing, in which case you must see Helen Mirren in Catherine the Great. We truly are in the golden age of television, and what’s happening on HBO (and now HBO Max) is a big reason for that.
