Based on Netflix’s 10 Best TV Shows for Thursday, December 2

1. Lost in space

For fans of: Robots, the phrase “Danger, Will Robinson” | Is it good?: It’s somewhere between a B and a B-

The third and final season of Netflix’s family sci-fi hit finds the Robinson family scattered across the far corners of the universe and trying to get back together before the evil alien robots capture Will (Maxwell Jenkins). The best thing about this show is the special effects, which still remain so impressive. (Yesterday rank: n / a)

2. True story

For fans of: Comedians playing serious roles, Cain and Abel | Is it good?: It’s not good, but it’s not boring either

Kevin Hart makes his TV series debut in this limited-time crime thriller series Narcos creator Eric Newman. He plays The Kid, a famous Philadelphia comedian, an organic character who makes True story looks like it will be semi-autobiographical. But as far as we know, Kevin Hart never woke up next to a dead woman and turned to his career criminal brother (Wesley Snipes) for cover, leading to a potentially fatal situation involving very bad people who want a piece of it. Snipes is great, but there is an off-putting bitterness in Hart’s performance. The uneven writing and tone makes the show run out of control, usually in a bad way, but every now and then in an exciting and unpredictable way. (Rank yesterday: 1)

For fans of: Revenge, reggaeton, shows with LOTS of episodes | Is it good?: It’s sexy and fun

In this chapter, Ocean of stone, Jolyne Cujoh has been sent to jail for a crime she didn’t commit, and she discovers a plot that seems too complicated to explain in one paragraph if you haven’t already watched the previous seasons, of which there are many.

I understand that fans of the sci-fi anime that Netflix’s live-action adaptation is based on are overly protective of the original, but it’s really not as bad as it has been said. In the Western space, John Cho and Mustafa Shakir play a pair of bounty hunters who take down all manner of wanted space criminals while facing their own issues, whether it’s yearning for a lost love. for a long time or trying to acquire a hard to get hold of. toy for a girl.

You won’t often leave an episode of Housemaid – adapted from the memoir of Stephanie Land Housekeeper: hard work, low wages and a mother’s will to survive – to feel elated with the world, because the miniseries is not afraid to focus on the difficulties faced by single mothers fleeing abusive relationships.
