While we wait to develop the presents placed under the tree, digital platforms offer us, once again, a bouquet of proposals to clear our minds. We take the opportunity to relax during this festive period!
Here are 18 shows to watch on digital platforms this holiday season:
Just like Santa’s gifts, talent is not evenly distributed. Thus, some people were particularly spoiled by the muses. This is the case of the adorable Florence Longpré who, in recent years, has proven to us that she has one of the most beautiful feathers on our television and a sense of dialogue that is difficult to match. The actress and screenwriter infuses each of her characters with a humanity that makes them instantly endearing despite their flaws.
The family remains at the heart of each of the creations in which she participated. Thereby, Raspberry timewhich stars the luminous Sandrine Bisson, presents us with a clan shaken by the death of one of its own. Audrey came back takes us to meet a young woman who comes back to life after years spent in a coma. And let’s not forget the solid core formed by three friends tested by the small and big misfortunes of life in Can you hear me? (also on All V and netflix).
The purchase of the Marvel franchise and the rights to most of its superheroes in 2009 proved to be a masterstroke for Disney+. Fans who have time to catch up can, if they haven’t already, find the Hawkeye, Loki, Falcon and the Winter Soldier as well as Wanda Maximoff (aka Scarlet Witch from Wanda vision) and his deceased partner Vision (embodied with a surprising bonhomie Paul Bettany) in the four series that have been devoted to them in recent years.
For those who are (almost) up to date, other recruits have made the leap to TV in recent months, including Jennifer Walters, the cousin of Bruce Banner (role taken over by Marc Ruffalo for the series) alias She-Hulk: Lawyer. This novelty, which rides on the success of certain legal comedies such as Ally McBeal features the cheerful Canadian actress Tatiana Maslany. She embodies with obvious pleasure the green giantess who faces enemies that are sometimes a bit playful while navigating the winding waters of the singles circuit in search of a soul mate.
In a notable effort to diversify the origins of its heroes while bringing a little
of youth in its stable, Disney has also undertaken to put into images the adventures of a teenager of Pakistani and Muslim origin in Miss Marvel. We follow the adventures of a young woman who, by donning bracelets that give her supernatural powers, follows in the footsteps of her idol, Captain Marvel. Times change, mentalities evolve, and fans will benefit from the breath of fresh air brought by the sparkling and charismatic Iman Vellani in the title role.
During the holidays, you have the opportunity to find Gary Oldman and Kristin Scott Thomas in the effective spy series the dishonored, inspired by Jackson Lamb’s series of books. This production, whose second season is fresh out of the oven, features a group of agents blacklisted by the British secret service MI5. But these friendly failures have the chance to redeem themselves.
Whether you really have to love Julia Roberts to get through the bizarre, slow-paced series Homecomingbased on the podcast of the same name, the “Pretty Woman” had a happier hand with political suspense Gaslit (also featured on Prime Video) which plunges us into the Watergate scandal. The actress co-stars with Sean Penn, unrecognizable as John N. Mitchell — former Attorney General of the United States — proving that the great actors have conquered television for good.
As for the television UFO Irma Vepwe follow Alicia Vikander in the skin of an American actress who is given the lead role in the redesign of the French film The vampires, a classic silent film. Unusual, to say the least.
If the verve of delicious Jean Smart is unfamiliar to you, the holidays are a good time to remedy the situation by discovering it in hacks. In this comedy, the actress plays a comedian on the decline forced to team up with a young scriptwoman with a character as difficult as hers.
Stars have also migrated to this platform, including Kevin Costner who plays ranchero patriarchs in the neo-western Yellowstone for five seasons.
Sylvester Stallone himself was tempted by the promises of Jeff Bezos’ platform. In Tulsa Kinghe plays a mob capo who, after spending 25 years in prison, is given the job of running operations in the unattractive town of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
On Tou.tv, you will also have the chance, with Martina at the beach and the adorable Sarah Berthiaume, to meet a rather colorful teenager with glasses who is having her first summer love. This creation by Simon Boulerice promises to make you smile and make you dream of the summers of your youth.
If you feel like smiling, you can also turn to the documentary Hey, Pepsi! Where is my plane? This production looks back at the attempts of a young American to honor the promise of the Pepsi bonzes to deliver a jet to anyone who manages to accumulate seven million points in the context of an organized competition. If he has indeed found a loophole to exploit, one wonders if the Court will give him reason. To see, if only to satisfy his curiosity in front of this amusing proposal.
