Curtains closed, phones off and pause button of life pressed for two days. Get ready to spend an entire weekend on the couch. After devouring all the best mini-series on Netflix with skin and hair, the offer on HBO Max turns out to be equally finger-licking good. And certainly now that there is a new world hit on the menu.
Love & Death new world hit
Love & Death spins a thrilling true story of adultery and murder. Did the sweet housewife actually hack her neighbor to paradise with an ax or is there more to it?
With a top cast led by Elizabeth Olsen and Jesse Plemons Love & Death has been at the top of HBO Max since its release. But the platform still has a number of strong mini-series in its streaming arsenal.
The best mini-series on HBO Max
Unfortunately, the rules of the game state that there cannot be two seasons of the series. Hence none Big Little Lies, even if the series could have been kept mini. In the case of the promising White House Plumbers the verdict is still pending, as only two episodes of the new mini-series have appeared at the time of writing. However, docu-series are out of the question, so there is only fiction on our plate. And as professional cannibals of the juiciest viewing fodder, the IMDb score of each series is merely a check of our Michelin star-worthy knowledge.
Vegetables well played away, bibs still virgin white; next Love & Death these are currently the best mini-series on HBO Max that you can gobble up in one weekend.
Despite the fact that the disaster of the same name is etched in the collective memory, you stay with it Chernobyl sitting on the edge of your lazy couch until the last minute. Up close, through the eyes of the key figures, it all seems even more improbable than in the history books.
The Stair case
Equal to Love & Death. And probably the mini-series with the most realistic and gut-wrenching death scenes ever put on film. But which one exactly concerns the truth is the key question of the ironclad The Stair case. Make no mistake, the docuseries of the same name on Netflix is also excellent binge material. But why would you want to hear the story, if it can be reenacted by Oscar winner Colin Firth?
Band of Brothers / The Pacific
Our hunger for war would also force us to put these classics on the list of the best mini-series ever made. Both war series are virtually unsurpassed in their respective representation of the European and Asian battlefields during WWII. Don’t forget to cover children’s eyes The Pacific.
We Own This City
The creator of The Wire this time tried his hand at the true story of corruption and racism within the police force of gritty Baltimore. Jon Bernthal you remember as The Punisher stars in this mini-series on HBO Max.
Mary of Easttown
Kate Winslet stars as a gruff small town police detective torn apart by a brutal murder. Every episode of Mary of Easttown raises new questions and answers to the bittersweet end.
