10 series to hit a marathon at Easter

The Bold Type / Genera + ion / The Stand

We have learned many things in this confinement, caused by the expansion of Covid-19 in our country, and one of them is that a catalog with thousands of movie and series titles can be too small for us. And it is not because we lack material, that there is plenty of that, but because too much we are often unable to decide what we want to see. In fact, we spend so much time searching (up, down, from comedy to action, from series to movies, from home to watchlist, from Netflix to HBO, from Smart TV to tablet …) that When we want to realize it, we no longer have the desire to see something new and we end up either watching the usual (‘Friends’ never fails) or turning off the television and picking up a book.

Now that Easter is coming, we have no doubt that many will face this same problem: the collision between wanting to see something new and not knowing what. The eternal questions: What do I see tonight? What have they released lately that is worthwhile? What series will surprise me? Which of these titles that don’t sound like anything at all to me is really going to make me have a good time? The answers to these questions can be found daily on the Fotogramas web, where we do not lack lists of recommendations and weekly criticisms so as not to miss anything at all, but, in case you need a faster and more accurate guide to find out which recent series have not received enough attention, although they should, here we are going to recommend a few.

It does not matter what platforms you have at home (Netflix, Movistar +, HBO Spain, Apple TV +, Disney +, Starzplay …), because in this list you will find options of all kinds. You just have to decide which one is the most likely to suit your tastes. (Are you more of future post-apocalyptics? Or romantic comedies? Or personal dramons? Or police thriller? Or horror stories?), Press play and start enjoying everything they have to offer.

‘It’s a sin’: A tale of struggle and dreams

Davies (which at the end of the 90s revolutionized British fiction and LGBTIQ + representation with the mythical ‘Queer As Folk’), ‘It’s a sin’ takes us to London in the 80s, when the crudest years of HIV were lived with the first AIDS cases. Through its five episodes, the story leads us to fall in love with his group of protagonist friends (Olly Alexander, Omari Douglas, Callum Scott Howells, Lydia West, and Nathaniel Curtis), who have come to the capital to start a new life and fulfill their dreams and will have to face, without knowing it, the obstacles that living outside of heteronormativity entails in a deeply intolerant society.

You know: the most terrifying is what has no face, because it is our imagination that is responsible for showing us the worst.
