Series to watch this spring: “Succession”, “HPI”, “Platonic”

Regularly, the “L’Heure du Monde” podcast offers an episode devoted to series reviews, with the two genre specialists at the World, Audrey Fournier and Thomas Sotinel. Among the new releases broadcast this spring, three programs caught their attention.

  • Succession. End clap for the hit American series from HBO. This saga follows Logan Roy, a billionaire media magnate who does not want to cede his empire to his descendants, as well as his four children, precisely, who dream of taking power. A dive into family betrayals. To be found in full with the Warner Pass on Amazon Prime Video. (Season 4: 10 one-hour episodes.)
  • HPI. This French series has been following for three seasons the investigations of Morgane Alvaro, a brilliant cleaning lady recruited by the criminal police, played by Audrey Fleurot, and Adam Karadec, played by Mehdi Nebbou. A police “dramedy” of great vitality. Currently being broadcast on TF1 and to be found in full on MYTF1. (Season 3: 8 episodes of 52 minutes.)
  • Platonic. In Los Angeles, two childhood friends, played by Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne, reconnect and go through a midlife crisis together. The series takes us on their quest for the meaning of life in a resolutely comic and gently anti-youthful tone. Available on Apple TV+. (Season 1: 10 episodes of 35 minutes.)

An episode of Esther Michon. Production and credits music: Amandine Robillard. Presentation and editor-in-chief: Jean-Guillaume Santi. In this episode: excerpts from the trailers of Platonic and of Young and golri ; music from the credits of Succession by Nicholas Britell; excerpt from episode 3 of season 3 of HPI.
