Once you ensure that you are connected to the internet, make sure you watch these shows since they are some of HBO’s best:
The Last of Us
The Last of Us started airing mid-January and it has been quite a treat for fans of the game that came out earlier and is considered one of Naughty Dog’s masterpieces. The show follows the same storyline as the game in which we see a man named Joel who lives in the post-apocalyptic USA and he is tasked to “smuggle” a girl named Ellie across the country since she is immune to the fungus causing the zombie apocalypse. The reason to smuggle her is to aid a curative process in which an organization called the “Fireflies” would reverse engineer a vaccine to protect people from the fungal outbreak.
Watch as Joel and Ellie travel across the country as they face multiple threats such as infected “zombies”, cannibals, and so on. The show is directed by Craig Mazin, who also made Chernobyl, and Neil Druckmann, the brains behind the best-selling game.
The White Lotus
Not only does this show have lots of drama but it is also paired up with a murder mystery, making it a really good watch. The first season of the show takes place at a resort called The White Lotus in Maui while the second season takes place in a hotel that is located in Sicily. In the show, we see a manager who has to cater to all the guests, all the while making sure that nothing goes wrong, a newly married couple who have a very problematic relationship, and a lot of other people.
The show not only features a murder mystery but is also infused with some comedy, which makes the show a bit light to watch. While the first season had some degree of murder involved, it is expected that the second season would have one as well.
Game of Thrones
How could we mention HBO and not Game of Thrones? One of the best shows of all time, you can stream episodes of Game of Thrones on HBO Max. Before you begin, you should know that Game of Thrones had a very lousy ending, so be sure not to expect too much from it. Before that, the show features a lot of iconic moments, brilliant scenes of battle, and such unexpected deaths that at certain moments your jaw would drop to the ground. The show is set in the fictional kingdom of Westeros where different families fight for the throne, the Iron Throne so that they could rule over all of Westeros. The politics in the show are so astounding that they would keep you asking for more. The first few seasons of Game of Thrones show how brilliant the show was and what capability it had of becoming the best show of all time, leaving Breaking Bad behind. However, the poorly executed ending did not let that happen.
You probably remember Velma from Scooby-Doo, the girl in the yellow jumper and brains that are extraordinary. Velma is dedicated to the character and revolves around her story and adventures because she’s never really gotten the limelight before. However, this show has a much darker undertone and is more directed toward adults and mature audiences, making it a bit unsuitable for children. The show stars Mindy Kaling as the main lead and the story is about Velma and her years in high school when the mysteries begin.
Other characters that we see from the Scooby-Doo franchise are Daphne, Fred, and Shaggy. Do know that their appearances have changed significantly so don’t be alarmed when you see them for the first time. Not only is this show bound to show you mysteries that the gang solves, but the darker element makes it even more interesting to watch.
The reason why HBO is one of the most popular channels of all time is because of the plethora of shows that it offers. Not only does it offer a lot of shows but it makes sure that they are all top-notch. One name that wasn’t mentioned in this list is Euphoria, which is also a must-watch with Zendaya’s stellar performance!
