Best HBO MAX Shows:

The Investigation

HBO ported over the BBC's Scandinavian police drama based around the real-life murder of Swedish journalist Kim Wall in 2017. You may have seen the headlines then, as the case was rather sensational: Danish entrepreneur Peter Madsen invited her to ride on his homemade submarine, killed her, dismembered her body and sunk various parts into the ocean. The Investigation never shows Madsen; instead, the show focuses solely on the thorough police work led by chief inspector Jens Møller (Søren Malling) and subsequent legal doings by prosecutor Jakob Buch-Jepsen (Pilou Asbæk). The six episodes unfold methodically and rather slowly, but the story is still entirely gripping.

The Flight Attendant  

Kaley Cuoco spreads her acting wings in this dark comedic thriller, playing a hard-partying flight attendant named Cassie Bowden. On a flight to Bangkok, she meets a handsome first class passenger, Alex Sokolov (Michiel Huisman) and ends up spending the night with him. When she finds him murdered in the bed next to her, a hungover Cassie freaks out and runs. That puts her in hot water with both law enforcement and shady business figures. 

Lovecraft Country

The HBO horror series comes from executive producers Jordan Peele, and J. J. Abrams, so you know the supernatural scares will be very real. Much like its HBO sibling Watchmen, Lovecraft Country is a racial commentary.  The show is set in the segregated Jim Crow era of the United States of the 1950s and the characters face all sorts of monsters — both the supernatural kind and the racist human kind.
