  • Sci-fi that delivers

    Prime Video’s new sci-fi adventure isn’t the next Stranger Things. It’s better, writes Robert Lloyd.

  • Pride and positivity

    Meet Eva Reign, Billy Porter’s muse and star of his film Anything’s Possible, writes Joshua Axelrod.

  • Better watch it

    It’s been a bit lower-profile outside the States — where they’ve been obsessed — but Better Things is a now-completed series well worth catching up with, finds Joel Golby.

  • Back on the scene

    The clever, arch comedy whodunnit Only Murders in the Building crams in way more than ever before as it returns for its second season, writes Rebecca Nicholson.

  • To bee or not to bee

    Rowan Atkinson is back to his slapstick best in the epic — if one-sided — rage-fuelled insect combat of Man vs Bee, finds Stuart Jeffries.

  • Danish‘WestWing’

    The Danish political drama is a breath of fresh air. How lovely to have it back, writes Stuart Jeffries.

  • An actual marvel

    Instant stardom awaits the new girl in the Marvel universe in Ms. Marvel. She’s funny, charming and effortlessly bats off preconceptions in this joyful coming-of-age tale, Lucy Mangan writes. Let the geek girls inherit the Earth!

  • Backintown

    Is it somehow possible for the furious, dark and hyper-violent superhero satire The Boys to become even more out-there in its new third season? It looks like it, finds Ben Allan.

  • THE press release accompanying volume four of Stranger Things makes a reckless boast: “Over five hours longer than any previous season!” The show is among Netflix’s biggest hits, but it returns at a time when the streaming platform’s business model — hook subscribers by hurling cash at bloated mega-shows, while deferring making any profit for as long as possible — is starting to creak. It feels rather provocative to trumpet that a knockabout sci-fi caper that was already in danger of treading water in its second and third seasons has been “supersized” — in other words, even vaster sums of money have disappeared into it.

  • Bigger, better, scarier

    The goofy gang in Hawkins is back in a supersized series that is visually stunning, way more disturbing — and has the show’s single greatest episode reports Jack Seale.
