5 Most Popular Shows on Disney Plus Hotstar
Among most streaming services that have hit the video-on-demand world in India, Hotstar still remains a big competition. Mostly because of its association with Star India – Which is in itself a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company. And of course, the association with HBO and their entire catalog. Here are 5 Hotstar TV shows that are worth every damn second of your binge-watching experience:
The Mandalorian (Season 2) –
The first season of The Mandalorian was a critical and public success when it premiered in November 2019. Although the episodes are short and vary in quality, it is far better than any of the films released in recent years. And it also has Baby Yoda.
What awaits us in the Mandalorian Season 2
There is no reason to think that season two will be different. Jon Favreau is still at the helm and even directs the first episode. Pedro Pascal returns as the Mandalorian along with Gina Carano as the rebel ex-special command Cara Dune, Carl Weathers as the Greek Karaga bounty hunter chieftain, and Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon, on the hunt for Baby Yoda.
This new season brings us, new actors. In theory, Temuera Morrison returns from the Star Wars prequels to play the famous Boba Fett, Rosario Dawson will be the Jedi Ahsoka Tano, the great Kattee Sackhoff – Starbuck in Galactica – as Bo-Katan Kryze and Timothy Olyphant – the sheriff of Deadwood – as Cobb Vanth.
The Undoing –
The Undoing is the latest series that HBO has released. Its creator and screenwriter are the same as Big Little Lies, David E. Kelley, and its actress and producer are Nicole Kidman, who has caught the point of that posh lady who sees how everything around her falls apart. You know what you are going to find in the undoing, and it delivers perfectly. An addictive thriller, which leaves you wanting to see another episode – which works in its weekly broadcast on which the platform bets – and that does not seek anything other than to entertain and engage. Kelley has hit the perfect spot and is once again making his series the most addictive of the moment.
The undoing once again proves that the formula works, and I’m sure it will be the series that hooks many users of the platform. The next question is how long will the public endure without getting tired of this type of series that makes so little effort to offer news.
Mrs. America –
Mrs. America is a biographical drama that tells the story of the change to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. The fiction centers on the conservative Phyllis Schlafly, a Republican and constitutional attorney who opposed such ratification. In addition, it also explores how the cultural, social, and political change of the 70s occurred in the United States.
The series shows how the feminist movement ran into a group of women in the 70s who did not want to take steps towards equality and convinced to keep “the traditional family.” Among her opponents, Gloria Steinem, Shirley Chisholm, and Betty Friedan played by Rose Byrne, Uzo Aduba, and Tracey Ullman.
Penny Dreadful: City of Angels –
Penny Dreadful: City of Angels is a horror series that centers the narrative in Los Angeles in 1938. At this time, the mixture of Mexican-American ‘folklore’ and social tension was constant. Therefore, the series is a mix between the supernatural and the reality of the time. The characters in this fiction must face various conflicts related to Santa Muerte and the Demon’s allies.
Detective Tiago Vega and his partner Lewis Michener, due to a macabre murder, will find themselves involved in a dangerous investigation that navigates the complex history of Los Angeles. From the buildings of the first highways of the city to the espionage missions of the Third Reich in North America and the rise of radio preachers. As they delve into the investigation, they will come across prophecies, the cult of death and the devil, and very powerful supernatural forces that threaten to destroy the entire world.
9-1-1 Lone Star –
After the attacks of September 11, 2001, Owen Strand was the only one left alive at his Manhattan fire station, who was left with the daunting task of getting him back on his feet. After an Austin fire station loses most of its staff, Owen, along with his son TK, also a firefighter, decide to travel to Texas City to help rebuild the barracks. Owen, a seemingly intrepid citizen, struggles with a secret he hides from the world that could very well end his life.
The series focuses on the character of Owen Strand (Rob Lowe), the only surviving firefighter from his Manhattan station after the 9/11 attacks. Owen has the complicated mission of rebuilding his station and will relive that process in Texas, where he moves to live with his son to try to get away from his drug addiction. In the Texas capital, he will try to strike a balance between the duty of saving those in need and resolving the conflicts in his life, including his own illness.
